Kim Soo-hyun has choco abs (?) (!)

Thank you, Kim Soo-hyun, for growing into such a fine young man, and I do mean fine in all possible ways one can mean it.

Now he’s gone and bared his washboard abs for us, as featured in this Vogue Girl photo spread that was shot in New York. The concept of the shoot has him looking a bit tougher than his previous roles, and the photos and interview span ten pages in the magazine’s September issue.

The actor has positively skyrocketed to fame in the past year, impressing audiences with his mature acting (in contrast to his youthful appearance) in notable child-actor parts (Will It Snow For Christmas, Giant) as well as a solid role in the tearful and heartfelt special short series Father’s House.

(Kim Soo-hyun’s hairstyle seems to be a more modern, edgy way to style the pompadour, from which I think Playful Kiss could take a hint. Perhaps their version suits the character, but this one feels fresher and more stylish.)

I would have loved for him to play the lead in Playful Kiss. Actually I'd like for him to play the lead in pretty much anything. I just want him to be in a drama where he doesn't play the child version of someone.

WOW.

Okay, let's call the meeting to order!

We generally enforce the over-21 rule in the ICOMYM Club (any younger and they have to be babes-in-waiting). I do believe he fits the age requirement now, no? If so, he is IN, and no one has to go to hell.

THANKS JB! :-D

can we be more flexible, and make it 19 ( or 20 in Korean's age )? because as far I know it's the legal age in Korea? :D

Just an offhand comment about the "modern and edgy" take on the pompadour for playful kiss: Lee Tae Sung's character in PK is supposed to be a sorta gangster, boy-who-grew-up-in-the-boondocks type which is why i think the unstylish, dorky hairstyle was given to him. If he did wear the edgier do (above), his character would look way too slick and suave to fit the original story...

Just saying :D

reply

Required fields are marked *

yep..agreed. In the manga, his character is quite, shall we say dorky, hot-tempered and an average looking young man (lol, my gentle way of saying, unattractive heheheh). DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE HAIR! glad that he'll be sporting a hairstyle exactly like in the manga.

And speaking of leading roles...

I have a feeling my eyes will be fixed on him in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Rawr.

I ttly agree with everybody, I would have preferred him as the lead in Playful Kiss... He's got a heck of a lot of acting talent than Kim Hyun-joong. Then again, we'll have to wait and see if Kim Hyun-joong has improved...

God, I would give ANYTHING to see him as the lead of Playful Kiss! He would look great with Jung So-min

Some people complain that there aren't enough (young) masculine actors in Hollywood, but they would have a seizure if they saw the situation in Korea and Japan. You can barely tell the men and women apart.

As for his "washboard abs," he does not have any muscles, only a low fat percentage. Photoshop could have been involved as well.

Yes, those abs are what we all have without any fat. We all have muscles underneath. LOL

But a really great actor he's turning into. Looking forward to seeing him in the future, as a lead.

Oh, those are definitely real, not photoshopped.
Unless they digitally enhanced his scenes in Giant or something, but I doubt it. ;)

Between episodes 3-5. Though I must warn you, they're not just gratuitous shirtless scenes, this tragic kid with the most heartbreaking pair of eyes could turn pretty violent.

Here, one such clip: http://www.viikii.net/videos/watch/80136/0/boxing.html
This one's relatively safer, his other such scenes are definitely not for minors. Heheh!

Thanks so much for the link!

Is it wrong that I unconsciously had "Fox Rain" from My Girlfriend is a Gumiho OST playing when I was watching that link? It totally killed the seriousness of that scene when I realized that all I was hearing was "doobidoo bi doo dafaa" while KSH is all half naked and sweaty lol.

BTW can you also tell me up to what episode he is in the drama? I tried watching it to see his acting but had to stop at the end of ep. 2 because it got too heavy for me :/

0

You're welcome. He's in it till episode 8, though he's hardly in ep2, he comes back and pretty much takes over from ep3 again.
Yes, the first 3.5 episodes are very tragic and it is admittedly heavy material, but then after the second half of episode 4, the show really kicks off and kicks ass. And you'll get some lighter moments being incorporated in, gradually.
(If you wind up liking it and stick it out, he becomes Park Sang-min after that, who from episode 10 onwards is mindblowing! I'd say he's just as good if not better than his younger counterpart).

@immakiddo!
Haha, why such wonderment? You've already seen his choco-abs a few times in Giant. Not to mention the shower scene at the military base with Jung Bo-suk. Ofc. I was totally engrossed in their compelling exchange over screwing over the US Officials, err... even had to replay the scene so as to catch every single word, thrice.
---That's ICOMYM and ICOMOM, both.

Kid is so cute and talented to boot, but I have to agree with post #24. The upcoming generation of [Korean] male stars are predominantly, for a lack of a better word, pretty. As long as talent trumps all, but it's simply a sign of the times as the generation of men who are now deemed attractive are increasingly marked with femininity.

The first picture does kinda remind me of SHINee's Key. Which probably explains why I like him so much. Other than his fabulous acting chops of couuuurrrseee. See! I am not so superficial like that! .....please don't call me out on that.

Hello ICOMYM Club! (I didn't know there was an age-limit. I thought...y'know...MUCH Younger Men would apply to under-21s as well. Since...y'know...that's kinda appropriate for me LOL)

It's a French thing, too, "les tablettes de chocolat." If you can't already tell, "choco[late] abs" are so defined that they resemble chocolate tablets.
