Character stills from Padam Padam

I know Padam Padam is all about Jung Woo-sung (Athena) and Han Ji-min (Cain & Abel)…but can we talk about how much Kim Bum has grown up the the past year? Yowsa.

I know all boys have to age sometime, and Kim Bum has been gradually growing out of his boyish looks with every role he takes, but still…I feel like he’s turned into an adult overnight, and it’s both amazing (those cheekbones! those eyes!) and sad (bye-bye, pinchy-cheeks).

Now he actually looks like he might suit the role of Padam Padam’s street-smart prison inmate who watches over the pure-hearted and wrongly convicted Jung Woo-sung while they’re serving time in the clink together. Jung’s character spends 16 years in prison, gets out and meets the self-centered Han Ji-min, leading to romance. Kim Bum is his buddy’s guardian angel who watches his back in and out of prison, while new face Lee Jae-woo takes a role in the supporting cast.

The cable drama premieres on jTBC on December 5.

Not only does he have the looks, but I have full confidence in his acting skills--East of Eden anyone? My god, he totally blew me away with all that melodrama. I didn't think he could handle it, but he was gajillion-times better than Song Seung hoon in that drama. I was devastated when his character "grew up". I stopped watching after Kim Bum was gone :''(

I totally agree! His scenes were the ones I cried in, that's how great his acting was. I was really surprised since I thought he was just a pretty boy in BOF.

I can't wait for Padam Padam to come out becuase of him! :))

My first reaction to Kim Bum in Padam Padam... "OMG, IT'S JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT!". Except probably hotter.

So excited!

damnn... Kim Bum definitely got older (and more handsome) looking :P I'm looking foward to this drama because it has Han Ji Min (who I've adored since Capital Scandal), (sexy) Jung Woo Sung haha, and Kim Bum (older, improved? heh). Lee Jae Woo is pretty cute looking too. The writer is Noh Hee Kyung, so as long as the acting is good... I think I'll be completing the drama lol

Wow JB before I even read a word I was thinking the same thing. He has lost the baby face! Now he's just this man and it works and wonderfully so. I just know he's gonna be a looker till he's all grey. Give the phrase "silver fox" a whole new meaning.

Where's Kim Bum? I was browsing the whole article over and over again but I can't seem to see him. *sarcastic*

Woah! I was really shocked upon seeing this article's thumbnail on the main page. I was like. Wait, wait, wait. This actor looks really familiar. lol

Well, with his cute boy looks before, I failed at imagining him with his role for this drama. I even thought that it's not going to work since he looks too young and too cutesy to be a prisoner. But now after seeing his new grown-up look, I guess he'll nail it. :)

I hated that time he was in the middle. Now, I can't believe myself either, but I actually think he looks handsome now. I really didn't care about his appeal before. I know, "OMG".

But can I just say how much I love this cast 100% and I'm totally drawn into the plot? I'm definitely going to watch this no matter what.

Whoa.

I am a fan of Ha Min-jae (Park Jin-hee, TWWSWTM) - it would be interesting to see Kim Bum (current) replay this role.

It's time Bummie caught up to buddy Lee Min-ho who can 'age' lookwise into any role with way more ease, than Kim Bum ever could.

OMG - Kim Bum. I need a cup of tea and lie down.

For some reason this photo reminds me of the younger Takeshi Kaneshiro - around his Sleepless Town period - and I am sure KB will be ageing as beautifully

And indeed Bummy has crossed into that territory.

Lol! My first time commenting on this site, I just had to-

@Xine, you guys I thought the exact same thing in rapid succession:

"OMG!!! ??... But how does my Takeshi...look.......so young...?...? Why is he in this dra- *trails off, cocks head, studying pic* WAIT! - how did they make Joseph Gordon Levitt look so Asi- *trails off* ??? *Finally begins reading article after being confused for about 5 seconds*

"KIM BUM THAT'S KIM BUM???? THAT'S Kim Bum!!!!!!" (((swoon)))

I've been waiting to see him at official "grown man" status since I saw BOF, I new he wouldn't disappoint! OW get it!

Holy Cow!!
Bummie is no longer the "comeheresoNunacanpinchthosebabycheeksofyours" kind of guy. Boy has DEFINATELY manned-up!

It's funny - when he was in contention for a role in WBDS, I was happy because I just love him, even if he really didn't suit the role. Just love to watch him, period.

This is a huge difference in his appearance - NOW I can totally see him rocking a sageuk! I always knew he could do the Mane of Glory, but now he has the WHOLE package. And what a fine package it is!

That picture of Kim Bum is phucking HOT. Those cheekbones, those eyes, indeed. And a big fat WORD to whomever said he and Takeshi Kaneshiro look like brothers -- hot brothers. Ah luhves me some Takeshi Kaneshiro. He makes me almost believe that 5'10" men are where it is at. But at least Kim Bum is 5'11 1/4", so if I stay barefoot and slouch, I can fake like we're the same height (I'm 6'0"). Holla!

Random: I don't usually notice this feature, but Kim Bum has a gorgeous nose. Gor. JUS. Scroll back up and take a look. I'll wait.

....

I know, right???
