Why Lee Pil-mo should never cut his hair

May I present to you the Sons of Sol Pharmacy, The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, and Kim Suro actor Lee Pil-mo nearly a year ago:

 

And Lee Pil-mo this week, Exhibits A through D:


Case closed.

He’s pictured at the December 21 press conference of KBS’s upcoming weekend drama Believe In Love, alongside co-star Hwang Woo-seul-hye.

The show comes from the team that steered 2009’s heart-warming comedic family drama Sons of Sol Pharmacy to 40%+ ratings, PD Lee Jae-sang and writer Jo Jung-sun. In that drama, Lee Pil-mo played rascally second brother Dae-pung and sported the same bowl cut as pictured in the top photo. I’d always considered Lee a good-looking guy, but in a benign, ordinary sort of way. Turns out it was all about the HAIR!

Believe In Love rings in the new year with its January 1 premiere.

Lol, this is so exact. Anyway, i like shorter, manlier types of haircut - when man wears long hair, he becomes a "shemale" for me :)
but this is just me

Lol, I love you jb.

Maybe it's just the fact that I don't like my guys with long hair, but I like the short hair better. I mean, he does look hotter with the long hair, but something about it is rubbing me the wrong way.

Its always about the hair for me too. I agree, nice enough looking guy, but then hair a little longer and he could absolutely be a hottie. I thought I was the only one obsessed with the hair.

yup me to, ALWAYS prefer a guy with hair a little longer, but I'm not quite sure about Lee Pil-mo here, probably because I don't like this double-breasted peaked-lapel suits he's wearing, must he wears a suits I prefer single-breasted instead and tone it down a bit with I dunno some jeans maybe..now that will go along fine with the hair :)

I thought he was adorable in Women... he has the kind of attractiveness that totally grows on you. :)

(Not to say that The Hair isn't pretty awesome, 'cause it is, obviously)

Woo baby... let's just hope that he knows it's all about the hair too. I actually didn't think he was good-looking until his stills for Believe in Love were released. xD

Indeed, hair can make all the difference! I find that it's often about the forehead: some people, like Lee Pil Mo, look much better showing some of their forehead, and some look better with long bangs.

Personally, I would give the award for The Most Startling Transformation Brought About by a Change of Hairstyle to Yoo Ah In. Seeing him with long hair and bangs in SKKS was an utter revelation. For me, he went from being kinda cute to being off-the-charts smokin'! During SKKS' run, my inner fangirl was wondering if there weren't some way to proclaim that for the betterment of humanity, Yoo Ah In should always look like Moon Jae Shin. I even imagined him appearing in a production set in modern times as a time-travelling Jae Shin (with Yong Ha as his sidekick, of course!). Oh, the embarrassing fantasies of a fangirl.....

Lol! I'm on the same boat as you about most startling transformation due to hair going to YAI. Surprisingly his long straight hair look in Strongest Chil-Woo did not bring the same effect, so I think part of it may be the disheveled look & facial hair.

About Lee Pil Mo I honestly prefer his short haired look. He looks younger with short hair. In the last picture he looks slightly awkward with his costar.

I also agree with you. Prior to SKKS I honestly didn't find Yoo Ah In all that attractive. He was sorta cute but in a boyish way that really didn't float my boat. But with the long disheveled hair and facial stubble he suddenly became manly and oh so very sexy, and I found myself crushing on him real hard, haha. He needs to get his own drama in which he is required to look like in SKKS. I don't even care what the drama would be about.

we're echoing each other when it comes to YAI!

i watched him in SCW, AB, TMWCGM - barely noticeable, he's just a kid, in SKKS - he's finally a man!

LPM - i like him in short hair, long hair makes him looks greasy, kekeke.. but that's just me..

How hairstyle could make so much difference! If previously he looks boyish and a bit mama-boy, now he look emm dangerous? But definitely HOT!

I notice that this slightly long, wavy style often used by Japanese actors, not to mention their ex-prime minister too!

Let's just face it (warning...no pun intended) - it's his FACE...lol! Personally, I like the long hair look on him but as was mentioned in a prior post - you can see his forehead - basically you can see his face without the bangs/hair in his face. It's rare to find a picture of him without the hair in face...I know..I tried...LOL.

isn't this the second blog dedicate to his hair? :D

one thing though that always amazes me is the hair flexibility of korean actors. i mean, long, short, long,... they go through the cycle seemingly at wil. must be good genes...

He looks handsomer and more stately with his long hair and it is a refreshing change from the bowl cut which he has kept for what seems like years. However, I do prefer the bowl cut in the end, just because it seems more approachable and less high-maintenance

See, I had already seen the potential (even with the short hair cut) that is why I claimed him as MINE. :D The right haircut and color can do wonders. :D As my daughter goes... there is potential for every Asian guy out there :P

He looks older and somehow more "manly" with longer hair. That's weird.

Hands down, 100% better with the longer hair. I think he looks older and very conservative with short hair he did not attract me at all before now he is up there with the hotties.

Very nice, Definitely keep the long hair!!

I wonder if his hair will change the type of character's he'll play. From my limited knowledge about The Woman Who Wants to Marry and The Sons of Sol Pharmacy, he was a bit of a douchebag.

I love it. It lends a more mature sense, because he has seemed "immature" in "Sons". It suits him well.

Er, yeah. I prefer him with longer-ish hair for sure. But not perfectly coiffed and curled and shaped like that. :3
Hmmm...I wonder what he'd look like with out all that.
But yeah, I he looked real good to me in WWSWTM ;)

All you long(ish) hair haters, leave JB alone! LOL

Yes, it's galling when a man has more beautiful hair than I do, but you gotta give props to a guy who will style his locks in a way that most flatters his features. And in this case, in exhibit B we have just that! It's not just the layered collar-brushing 'do' that makes his features soften and look more approachable, but the discreet facial hair adds extra dimension to his Exhibit A more pedestrian ahjusshi looks.

Oh yes, the tresses that say "touch me" are a big win for him!
