I can't say that Song Joong Ki was ever one of my biases until now that is. He's a good actor who slayed it as aristocratic playboy Gu Yong Ha in Sungkyungkwan Scandal and he also pulled off a compelling performance without many words in A Werewolf Boy. Joong Ki was the pretty one with some fun and adorkable moments on Running Man but he never really stood out. The actor is soaring to new heights with Descendants of the Sun which I'm currently watching. A good deal of the drama's success has been attributed to his captivating performance as Captain Yoo Shi Jin and there is even an phenomenon known as "Song Joong Ki Syndrome" for people who can't get enough of him. The Chinese government actually issued a warning since there have been serious marriage conflicts and even divorce in China due to jealousy on the husband's part due to their wives' love of Song Joong Ki. Some people have even undergone plastic surgery to look more like the actor. I fear I may have been afflicted as well but I'm not that far gone. I'm really more enamored with Yoo Daenim the character he plays more than the actor himself and my husband is aware of that. Joong Ki appeared in this Elle editorial last fall where he modeled a range of urbane and sporty KolonSport looks while he was in the midst of filming DOTS. At 30, he still looks like every bit like the charming boy next door, one who has a complexion to die for!
