So Ji Sub : One Mighty Fine Looking Korean Actor
While I might be able to resist crispy fried chicken and French fries, I am mentally never strong enough to resist abs. Those 6 – or 8, I am not picky, I will stare at both – pecs will be the bane of my existence.
Having abs can say a lot about a person. It means they are resilient, hardworking, dedicated, committed once they set their mind onto something. Which can also translate into how they are in a relationship, in which they…
Just kidding. I completely just made that up on the spot.
Jokes aside though, my crush for So Ji Sub has been long standing. I found out about him when I was 15 and I have been loyally fangirling over him ever since. Me and So Ji Sub’s relationship – one that he is not aware of – has been through storms, tornadoes, waterfalls, lava land and other nasty and weird phenomena you can think of.
I first started noticing him when I was watching a Korean drama called “Master’s Sun”, which is a horror romantic-comedy starring So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin. At first, I was skeptical. Since at the time I was new to Korean Drama, but the show kept getting recommended to me over and over again that I eventually relented.
For those of you who are curious about the Master’s sun, here is the trailer :
And guess what? I am so glad I did. Because boy oh boy, this man can act. There is a certain charm to So Ji Sub – good looks and physique aside – that makes me curious and always come back for more. His portrayal of character are always spot on. And his versatility when it comes to acting is insane. Ji Sub is literally one of the few Korean actors that can make me laugh my butt off for one minute and then cry my heart out on the next.
Simply put, from then on, I have been a big fan of all and any of this man’s work. It has gone to the point where if a movie or a show has So Ji Sub in it, you betcha popcorn I’ll be getting in line to watch it first *wink wink*
