Eye Candy : Song Joong Ki for Harper's Bazaar

Harper's Bazaar spends a day with Song Joong Ki as he hangs out in and around Hong Kong's swanky Peninsula Hotel. The magazine's May 2016 cover star is clad in a boldly emblazoned Louis Vuitton shirt and wears other pieces from the label's Spring/Summer 2016 collection throughout this very extensive editorial. The charismatic 31 year old actor who won the hearts of many the world over for his portrayal of Yoo Shi Ji in Descendants of the Sun might just be the most popular celebrity in Asia right now (Song Joong Ki syndrome is a thing!)  but he still remains ever so down to earth. When questioned recently about his status as a Hallyu star (Hallyu is a term meaning “Korean Wave” that refers to the outflow of Korean culture to other countries), Joong Ki humbly replied that he can't get used to the idea of being a Hallyu star, crediting it to the overwhelming success of DOTS. Instead he pointed to his Descendants of the Sun leading lady Song Hye Kyo and his best friend Lee Kwang Soo of Running Man fame as true Hallyu stars. It's nice that he's not letting this fame get to his head and choosing to focus on continuing to work hard and challenge himself as an actor. This photoshoot took place a few days after Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo's HK ViuTV press conference. The bird emblazoned fashions are pretty ugly but the more classic and graphic looks he is wearing are nice especially the maroon sweater with the blue arrows. Joong Ki is back to his signature flower boy image here. Personally I thought his Yoo Shi Jin look was hotter but he's mighty fine nonetheless and his hair looks phenomenal. The credit for that has to go his new stylist Lee Hye Young who is coincidentally Song Hye Kyo's longtime personal hairstylist. It's interesting how these two now share a hairstylist as well as the same circle of friends. Yes I still believe that SongSong are dating especially since neither none of them have actually outright denied it. Anyway let's enjoy Joong Ki's magnificent hair while we can since he will be shaving his head for his role as a freedom fighter in Battleship Island which begins filming in July. In the meantime he's fast becoming the CF king of Asia as it seems like he is signing a new endorsement deal every day lately. Check out Joong Ki in this Harper's Bazaar editorial from 2013 where he was featured alongside Won Bin and Jo In Sung who happen to be two of the actors who turned down Descendants of the Sun before he was cast. While they both have an edge in terms of looks and height, I can't imagine anyone else but Song Joong Ki as Yoo Shi Jin!

  12. Well, hello there, SJK:D Hehe....I can just never get enough of him! And it's even better that he's remained humble despite all his fame...swoon...I finished DoTS yesterday. I don't think I've ever cried so much over a TV show as much as I did on Episode 15. Song Hye Kyo was amazing in that episode. You're right about her character...it did take awhile for Dr.Kang to really shine IMO, but shine she did:) And how awesome is that that the last scene was in Vancouver...hehe...it would be really great if they did another season, you know?

    PS So happy those actors turned down the role. I can only picture SJK as Capt. Yoo!

  17. The more casual styling is my favourite to see this time, especially wearing the blue paneled jacket. It's nice when stars don't let being a "celebrity" get to their head. We all have had a starting point, and he sounds down to earth, but enjoying the ride, nonetheless. :)

  20. It's so refreshing to see an actor who is down to earth and actually shares the credit with his co-actors. I dislike him in the LV shirt but that second picture from the top....aww...

  22. Oh, I can get that 'Song Joong' appeal!!! He embodies that boyish charm! Some man just have that boyish charm and energy...and he has pleanty of it. Very adorable actor and it is good to hear he's also very down to earth.

    As far as editorial goes, I absolutely loved it!...and I actually do like those florals:):) Gorgeous clothes, perfect styling, awesome photography and a star full of a charisma and energy...basically everything one needs for a phenomenal editorial.

  24. Yes it is nice to come across some in the "media" that is humble, seems in this age of reality TV, social media and selfies this can be hard to fine. Shaving his head, on no! Though some actors look better with shaved heads. I thought the actor that played Shane looked better with his head shaved.

  31. I haven't seen DOTS, hopefully soon, but I've already seen his photos around, a rising star indeed!

  32. He is a cutie! Let's see how long will it take for him to get overwhelmed by fame:) Great editorial!

    ReplyDelete
  33. haha I have to agree with you, Rowena, the bird emblazoned just not a fit with him... Song overload here, but some nice ones, especially the black and white... ahhhh he's going bald soon?? That would be interesting to watch *_^

    Oh I think both Won Bin and Jo In Sung are not the ones I can picture playing Captain Yoo Shi Jin, it would looses that cheekiness of the character, just don't cut it *_^

    Hope you are enjoying your week, Rowena!

  34. I noticed a lot of hairstylist/celebrity friendships over years! Guess they share the same secrets... lol Wouldn't mind to share bed & breakfast with this cutie, Rowena! I'm sure you know about Chen Kun's May cover of Chinese GQ. Still drooling of this Eye Candy as well. ;DD
