Kim Young-kwang signs on to become God of Bath

Kim Young-kwang (Good Doctor) was just reported to be considering a drama (tvN’s Plus Nine Boys) but first he’s confirmed a new movie called God of Bath, which is based on a a webtoon of the same name.

It almost sounds like a joke—and take a look at those images from the webtoon, which I find hilarious—particularly with the main character being named Heo-se, which is like naming your hero Arrogant, or Full of It. And then my second thought (after the knee-jerk guffaw) was to think this role sounds made for Jang Geun-seok, and to wonder whether he’d already passed on it. (He IS known for being the king of heo-se.)

God of Bath centers around a young unemployed man named Heo-se who aims to become the best manager of the world’s largest “hot springs theme park.” It sounds pretty simple in conflict—it’ll focus on the ups and downs that Heo-se faces in his struggle to climb his way to the top—but the webtoon was quite popular on Naver and has an existing fanbase. Kim Young-kwang professes to be a fan of the series, which helped in his decision to take the role.

God of Bath is aiming for a Summer 2015 release, and will begin filming in the latter half of the year. And now, enjoy some abs:

I used to have a fondness for Kim Young-Kwang ever since I kept seeing him more and more, but I'll admit that an interview of his did kind of turn me off big time. His feelings on overweight women were a bit...hard for me to swallow. I'm still glad to see him being successful though, as he is still a part of the White Christmas crowd. And I'll still be tuning in to this for sure!

I never said he was a jerk :) I actually think it's cool that he just states his opinion. But it should be noted that, in this interview, he wasn't even talking about simply not being attracted to overweight woman, he explicitly said that if someone with a bad physical appearance shows up, he doesn't even want to look at them. So while I still like him, it's a shame that I can't love him as much as actors that, well, just don't say hurtful things like that.

I wouldn't think someone was a jerk if they expressed that sentiment in a casual conversation.

But I do think it's rather more ill-judged to be saying that kind of thing in a teen girls' magazine, which is what he did.

@Elise: As Chandler explained, it wasn't the understandable position that overweight women aren't attractive to him (even if that marks him as someone who's bought wholesale into his society's narrow-minded, unrealistic beauty standards, since it doesn't take much AT ALL to be considered chubby and overweight by Korean standards).

It was that he said, male or female, he could only stand to really look at pretty people, and that his friends were basically always having to scold him for badmouthing people who didn't meet his standards - those sentiments and behavior (and the fact that he felt comfortable enough to express them without embarrassment in an interview) are evidence of a staggeringly shallow, judgmental human being.

----------------

Vogue Girl: What kind of physical appearance do you dislike?

Kim Young Kwang: I hate anyone that looks pathetic . Anyone that looks like Sung Joon (model), I don't mind if they show up without their hair washed or something but when someone whose physical appearance I don't like shows up like that, I don't even want to look at them.

Vogue Girl: I'm not that into short, stubby hands.

Kim Young Kwang: I hate thick calves!

Vogue Girl: That's right, you said before that you look at a girl's legs the first time, right?

Kim Young Kwang: I look at everything (laugh).

Kim Young Kwang: I've said this in almost every interview but whether they be a male or female, I like them to be pretty.I know that it's not necessary to say things like this but I'll look at someone's physical appearance and say, "I don't like that person. I don't think they'll match me." Then my friends will be like, "Hyung, you're really mean, you know that?"

Past interview:

I broke up with my girlfriend last September. The reason? Why are you asking me that, it's embarrassing me. My ideal woman is someone who's smart and cute. Someone who dresses well according to each situation, but doesn't overdo it. What I think is ugly is when women with thick thighs and short legs wear skinny jeans. Or those that wear leggings and a miniskirt and sit with their legs spread open on the subway... I sincerely ask those people to stop."

--------------

So yeah guys, he made it clear he doesn't want UGLY and also FAR people around him and doesn't want even to look at them, or work or talk with them, because he is handsome so he just wants pretty people around him, nothing wrong about it huh? /sacarsm

So then, he is a complete and utter idiot with a completely inflated ego.

Fortunately, I don't have to spend any time with him as a real person, and his ass-hat tendencies don't come across in dramas unless called for by the script.

And yeah, I think that attitude makes him kind of ugly on the inside - which I hope changes as life roughs him up a bit - but I'm really, truly, honestly ONLY interested in his outside.

Honestly I don't know what to feel about this interview...I've always loved him as a model and an actor for a few years now, but I wasn't aware of this controversy. I feel like although we can't judge him as a person entirely from this interview, he should have been more cautious and tactful, seeing that he was speaking essentially to the media and to a younger audience. It is true that many people look and judge based on appearance (after all, we all have our favorite celebrities) whether this is necessarily right or not. The first thing that comes into a person's eyes is another person's appearance since it's impossible to peer into the depths of their soul upon first meeting. However, everyone is different from that point on. We also have our pet peeves and prejudices (unfortunately) because no one is perfect. However, I feel as if most of the controversy stemmed from Kim Young Kwang's wording of his thoughts, for he chose to express them in a careless and potentially hurtful manner. There's a line between those who are praised as being "honest" and those who are criticized as being "tactless" and "rude" and honestly, it really depends on the person's wisdom and sense in choosing which words are appropriate to say to a larger audience and which thoughts can be kept to his/herself. If, for instance, Clara was more sensible in expressing her thoughts she wouldn't be as looked down upon and criticized as she is now.

WHOA BOY. This was being turned into a movie? I had no idea. I'm a huge fan of the original creator, Ha Il Kwon. God of Bath isn't my favourite of his works (Annarasumanara is), but it's a lot of fun. A little too weird to be quirky and kind of gross sometimes but it has just the right amount of deadpan humour and crack.

About the casting: I haven't forgotten Kim Young-Kwang's douchiness yet. But I'm confident that he'll be able to relate to his character. At least he won't have any trouble channelling the narcissism, arrogance and general asshattery needed for the role.

HA IL KWOOOOOONNNNN!!! God, I love this webtoon author; a lot of his works have been fan-translated into English and are free to read. My personal favorites are My Heart is Beating, Afterschool War Activities, and Annarasumanara. The man knows how to play with color.

Now all I need is for Cheese in the Trap to get a drama. It's a psychological, realistic, and well written romance that's right up dramabeans' alley.

Look, you guys. From what I've heard so far, he sounds like a major jerk. He said very cruel and mean things. I get that.

But is it right to just gossip about him? So what if he said those words? We all have to admit, we've said something like that in our lives. I mean, look at me! I've said pretty cruel words to girls in their faces and I regret that. You guys probably said "Omg, what is she wearing?" "She's so fat!" "He's so ugly!"

That's pretty much the same thing he did. But look at us. Do we have any right to judge what he said? I don't agree with what he said. but again.... we've pretty much said the same things he did. That makes us equally guilty. So tell me this. WHY ARE WE JUDGING HIM WHEN WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO?

Exactly. Plus if people gonna defend how it's our rights as human beings to make mistakes then I also say it's our rights as human beings to make judgement.

And sure I'm guilty of passing comments on ppl's appearances but not in any kind of public venue and if someone heard me doing that and judge me for doing it then I totally deserve it.

Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences and one of the consequences for what he said is that I think he's an asshat and he will continue to get drag for it unless he does something that negates his published words.

Well said. I'm sure none of us are perfect and we have mean comments about someone or other, but we don't say that in their faces (except maybe it's in a fight). It's only right to keep such thoughts and comment to ourselves, or out of earshot of that particular person. This publication reaches out to young girls and his comments will only make overweight girls feel worse. I would call it innate human decency but apparently he doesn't have any.

If he didn't care for the feelings of others, it just means he doesn't care that he will be judged for it.

Enough with this inane moral equivalence.

Those times when I have been prone to judge on appearance: (1) I knew it was wrong; (2) I felt guilty; (3) I hoped I would not do it again.

This guy seems to have no problems, moral or PR-wise, with his outlook. While you could defend the 'bravery' of his honesty, then you'd have to also defend the courage of racists and sexists who have also publicly made their views known.

I have a question. Why are we judging him? No, I don't agree with what he said about ugly women and etc. I get that what he said was wrong. But he's human. So are we. We make mistakes. We're not perfect. We've all probably said the same thing: "Omg, what is she wearing today?" "He's so fat!" "Those girls are so d*mn ugly!"

So... why are we judging him...? When we don't even have a right to? When we ourselves have pretty much done the same thing he has? Where does that put us?

Nonono I never said that.... Of course I would defend him if he was unattractive. But what I'm saying is.... We all have our own ways of viewing the world. My view and your view and his view can and will very different. That same concept goes to "ugly and oversized" ladies. My view and your view and his view.... they're all gonna be different. And there's absolutely nothing you can do unless he himself changes his view.

As for your "defending the sexists and racists" comment, I understand that it's wrong. But for them, in their eyes, it's what they believe in. I personally don't believe in that, but it's not like I can change the way they view the world.

But views are not just views, people act on them, and others can potentially be hurt by their actions. Women have basically been oppressed for centuries because men had some pretty misogynistic views. Should we just go "oh that's just how they think, it's not going to affect me". Unfortunately, that's not how the world works.

I also don't see why anyone should defend the indefensible.

The remarks he makes are unpleasant, ill-judged, shallow, and also actually just stupid. I hope he outgrows them, because if he only sees people - women or otherwise - as merely a sum of attractive features for his particular viewing pleasure, then he's going to miss out on a whole lot of life and humanity - and moreover, he will deserve to.

Also, he won't keep his own pretty face forever. People age, they can become disfigured through injury and disease - life happens, you know? It must be very easy for him to judge harshly now, because his idol face and model body are his free pass (I call this 'pretty privilege' - like white privilege, but for attractiveness), but I doubt he would have felt the same if he was one of those 'ugly' people he can't even bear to look at.

Can we not just admire his acting skills rather than criticise his personality flaw?

Other wise, I feel that I should speak up. While I think I'm not as extreme as he is, but I've done the same. It's natural for people ti judge others on their appearance. We form an opinion of their personality like that. I personally avoid people who are obese or vain looking. I tend to converse more with plain looking people. That doesn't mean I haven't had my initial opinion of people proven wrong. I've met people who I tried to avoid based on appearance but got to know better later on by chance and came to like them.

For those who think I'm protecting him, I'm not. I'm protecting myself since I think like him. However I would not voice my opinion like him, he could have word it better. Yes, it is rude for him to say that. Yes, it is shallow, but I can't help but to judge people by their appearance.

PS. I think what he said was a joke. He called Sung Joon ugly. ROFL. I was searching up Sung Joon and found that Sung Joon and Yong-Kwang did a friendship photo shoot for vogue around the same time this vogue interview came out. I'm pretty sure they're friends.

As a guy of average looks, I used to HATE how my guy friends, otherwise solid persons, would go APESHIT crazy sweet and considerate in the presence of PRETTIES, but revert to their stoic normal states of other-concern when UGLIES or MEHs would be around. It got so bad, and embarrassing (as a male), that I simply ignored anyone attractive for about a year. I also tried to be especially attentive and kind to those I considered unattractive. Haha, stupid, yeah. Took me some time to realize that I was doing the very thing I set out against, judging a person for their looks. There COULD be gorgeous yet humble women! Go figure. Perhaps they are rare, but probably not as rare as a sensible celebrity or moral politician.

So my apologies to all the PRETTIES I treated like shit for that year.

I guess we'll never be friends. Well it was nice almost knowing you! :) I promise I mean this, I'm not being sarcastic at all.

"Sung Joon and Yong-Kwang did a friendship photo shoot for vogue around the same time this vogue interview came out. I’m pretty sure they’re friends."

If you're still listening to a person from among the groups you personally avoid: they were together in White Christmas and Can We Get Married.

One more thing I will say to you, Ukki, and the various others who are voicing similar sentiments - take it from an unni (I'm going to assume I'm older than you, and that you're a female, if that's okay): these feelings and judgements you describe go more accurately by another name: prejudice.

Prejudices are not things to be glorified. Prejudices are not brave. 'Honesty' about prejudices is merely a lack of common sense, good judgement and decency. Above all, prejudices need to be reconsidered, so that you might dismantle them, rise above them, and see what truly is in front of you. What is in front of you, it could be good or bad or both - but at least, at least, your judgement and opinion then is based on truth and facts rather than conjecture informed by ignorance.

And just to properly disclaim: prejudice should not be conflated with preference, which is a different kettle of fish. People are allowed to have their personal preferences, but they should do their best not to allow themselves to have unfounded prejudices based on arbitrary things.

Whoa, I didn't expect this negative energy on here...but I guess if you say shit like that, he can't possibly expect to garner any respect from potential viewers of his work. I've only heard bits and pieces but to read his interview (for a teen girl's mag, no less!) it's a bit to call it brutal honesty.

Overinflated ego with an eye for only so-called "slim prettys" is epic dumbness, even more so to get that shit published not once but at least twice. I got to hand it to him, he told it like it is for him -- but he obviously did not think of the consequences at all, which is his loss.

Honestly, I don't find him attractive in my book...he's got that model look -- and I don't find most models attractive.

Can we stop with this whole Vogue Girl debacle? We all get it; he said it. As if we all don't think it sometime or another...And not just about girls. When we see potbellied guys in wifebeaters or short shorts or *god forbid* skinny jeans, we don't think exactly what KYK said in the interview. And for the record, Korean guys all want their girlfriends to be pretty. It's extremely superficial of them to say this aloud, but they do it all the time and quite bluntly.

AND, for those who are all like, well he should have known better as a public figure and since the magazine caters to young girls, blah blah blah...has anyone ever mentioned the fact that the interviewer, the copy editor, and the editor-in-chief should have edited out those parts?? I mean, their target market is those young girls, which I'm sure they know better than us commenters and KYK. If anything, I would smh at them more.

Way to detract from the argument at hand which is not about the editors/interviewer/etc of the magazine and their wrong actions because this article is not about them is it? No, it's about one guy and one guy only. Plus another person's wrongness does not absolve someone else's guilt.

And so what if we all think it? At least some of us have the grace and understanding to if not feel shame about it, at least not boasting it TWICE.

Like what another commenter said up thread, if you like this dude and enjoy his acting, that's all fine and good, just don't try to defend his asshatery through the flimsy excuses of "oh but everyone think that!" or "oh but he's so honest" blah blah and blah.

The reason some are offended is because it hits on a personal level, and god forbid your celeb oppas don't like the fatness. Don't watch the drama if you don't like something an actor said, but cheese whiz~ get over it. It's been ages. You're worse than knetz who criticize a celeb's public image more than the actual skill and work they do. Going about this way, you must boycott tons of Hollywood film and tv.

I did not say that the magazine staff is solely to blame, I however did say that the staff is not mentioned in this discussion because this article is not about them. It's about this one actor who has a public platform and he used it to body shame people so yes, he is an ass. And it's not a matter of personal preference because even if I think someone is unattractive it doesn't mean I will not look or talk to them which is what he stated in his interview. Like what another commenter said, that's prejudice not preference.

And so what if this is a personal offense cause "oppa" ( way too old for me to oppa this jerk anyway) doesn't like fat ppl? Society is constantly bombarded by harmful messages about what you should look like and celeb's comments do fuel this negative relentless need to fit a certain body image. This should not be ok and yet there are ppl like you and other commenters who think what he said is fine.

It's true, I don't watch a lot of things with people whose public image I find distasteful. It's entirely possible to live life without supporting people who are asses! Not that my lack of support means much to them since am sure they're still rolling in dough but hey at least I don't have to be disgusted with myself for liking questionable celebs.
