Eye Candy : Olympic Inspired for InStyle and Lee Seung Gi


It's quite exciting that the London Olympics will commence in just three more days isn't it. InStyle Korea celebrates the games with a special August issue that features various male celebrities representing different sports along with their messages of personal encouragement to the participating athletes. Lee Dong Wook pictured above captures the spirit of canoeing while looking stylish. I found the photo of Lee Sun Gyun whose sport is shooting a tad odd as I don't know what a cat has to do with the sport or why he's sitting by a crate in house slippers with a cheeky expression. It's fun though.

LEE SUN GYUN : SHOOTING
LEE MIN KI : FENCING
LEE SANG WOO : BOXING
PARK GUN HYUNG : TENNIS
LEE JIN WOOK : HANDBALL
In other Olympic related matters, I had previously talked about Lee Seung Gi serving as an official torchbearer for the games and he did it. The singer/actor carried the flame at Rochdale near Manchester in the UK on June 23rd. He ran 320 meters from Stratford to Manchester Road Avenue.

I'm so excited! Speaking honestly, I don't think Portugal is going to win anything, but I'm looking forward to see gymnastics and diving!

Wow, Rowena, fantastic editorial, and definitively eye caramel, hehe! I like especially Lee Jin Wook, the handball player, he has tons of attitude, in a sassy way, don't you think?
Big hugs, sweetie!

You always have the best eye candy!! I'd never have known about these cuties if it weren't for your editorial features. I like the way they took the sport theme and turned that into art photography.

Rowena, I can't wait girl! I've been ready since they announced London was the host country! HAHAHAHA I hope I blog during those two weeks. LOL I love this editorial. My favorite is Lee Dong Wook! Gorgeous photo. I also love the fencing pic. Thee must be a story behind the cat and crate pic that we don't know about. HaHaHa

Yaaay! I'm so glad you're putting that pic on Etsy! I'm definitely buying it.

I love this editorial!! They all look really good regardless if the photos have anything to do with sports. lol

I am very excited for the olympics too. I really want to catch the opening ceremony but the broadcast time is 3.30am where I live >-<

That cat/gun/wooden box photo is so confusing maybe the cat photo bombed the shot? The rest of them are nice though. The color and simplicity is great!

I can't believe you have had no cold things. I can't remember the last time I had something hot, especially in the summer but if it works then I say, do it! :) I made an exception for ice cream ban last summer if it was purchased at a stand on the side of the road. Bonus points if there were actual live cows involved. I drink iced coffee in the winter because the ice doesn't melt and when people question it, I tell them I'm drinking it to warm up. I actually like spring and fall best though.

Yes to the witch doctor. Beets seem to be the key to success. That and some kelp powder, carrots and some other things. It's not a cure but I'm definitely better so that's good!

I could totally see the wool items in a drama. One where they aren't in the city though.

I didn't even realize the Olympics were that close! I'm interested to see which countries will win this time! :D

I have been watching the Olympics non stop. These photos are so fun and the guys all look GREAT. The cat and gun photo is a little wild, I agree. Haha.
