There has been no shortage of Song Joong Ki editorials lately but this one for Marie Claire has to be my favorite because it plays so perfectly to his signature boy next door image. The concept finds the adorable actor chilling at home, cuddling a cute doggy and checking out the contents of his refrigerator amongst other activities. The casual cool styling featuring the Kolon Sport brand for which he is the spokesperson is also spot on. I can't say that I was the biggest Joong Ki fan prior to Descendants of the Sun but his charismatic performance won me over and he seems to be a truly good guy in real life as well. I know that for some people, it doesn't matter if the celebrities they're fans of are actually awful people but I personally don't care to follow anyone who's a jerk. Joong Ki was recently criticized when he chose to appear on Hurry Up Brother instead of Running Man (the former is the Chinese version of the latter). In fact he did it out of loyalty to previous Running PD Im Hyung Taek who is now helming Hurry Up Brother and his appearance fees were donated to charity. His agency also announced that all the proceeds from his Asian Fan Tour would be donated to charity. As a SongSong shipper I've been keeping tabs on his fan meets and he showed off some personal photos from his phone at his Beijing fan meet that revealed a very close relationship to both Song Hye Kyo and Yoo Ah In but somehow it felt like Yoo Ah In was there as a smokescreen haha. In Korea it's quite uncommon for female/male co-stars to continue to hang out regularly after a project has ended. Just saying. Joong Ki and Hye Kyo have both been nominated for lead acting awards in the television category for Descendants of the Sun at the upcoming Baeksang Arts Awards. I'm really hoping that they will both attend and maybe even walk the red carpet together. I'm sure other DOTS fans would like to see a Yoo Shi Jin and Kang Mo Yeon reunion as well.

Lovely post dear! Have a great weekend! xx

omg, I can't believe we're about the same age, because he looks like a teenager in this editorial. However, I do remember another editorial you showed us where he seemed more mature. Song Joong has something very playful, boyish and natural about him, he poses with such ease...I mean, if I was planning/shooting an editorial, I would totally want to hire him, wouldn't you? He's just a natural model ( I know he's really an actor, but you know what I mean), he is so relaxed in front of the camera and it shows. My favourite photos from this editorial are those with the dog...so cute!

Squeeze! Thanks for this, Rowena. Massive hugs from Canada...hehe....These shots are just awesome. I must admit I'm more of fan of his casual looks than the highly-stylized ones:D Even though this is an editorial, I feel like this is more the style I'd see SJK in IRL so I'm loving it. And I love how he's donating the proceeds to charity...sigh...can he be more perfect?!?!
I'm off to search for those pics now with SHK and Yoo Ah. And I hope I can stream the Baeksang live!
PS Thanks for the rec on the dramas as well, Rowena. Just saw ep.1 of "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" and I like it!

That is an interesting fact about Korean stars don't usually hangout together after the project is finished. And it really shows what a good person he is, not often you hear about actors donating their earnings to charities, wish there are more like him. I think he just got cuter in my eyes, if that even possible....

It is so fun seeing how magazines you are familiar with here in The States look from other countries. This editorial is so cute. I love the photo with dog with his paw on Song Joong Ki's knee.

I totally agree with Allie on this one *_^ Even the dog knows how to act and pose, huh? Rowena, looks like you are not quite over him, just yet, huh? haha *_^

JeannLiew | Luminnej said...

This is way too cute, Rowena! I love how his hair is styled here, cool and nice.

I am just the type of person, for whom it matters if the celebs I am fan of are good, or bad people. He's so cute. I really like the idea behind this editorial - chilling at home... It cannot be more sexy!

Oh my gosh! This is the editorial. I can't recall the story exactly but that cocker spaniel actually doesn't have a home and had a temporary home within the photo shoot company that did the editorial (this might not be right... my Korean isn't that great either). But in the efforts to give the dog exposure so he could be adopted I think they put him in the shoot with Song Joong Ki. Cocker owners in Korea were sharing all over Instagram this because even though he appeared in the shoot, etc. he still wasn't able to find a right home. I am not sure what happened to him.. I hope he was able to find a place to hang his leash with the help of a famous celebrity friend :)

Kim said...

OH MY GOD. This is why a girl should always go to a bookstore every month. I'm going to run, not walk, run to the bookstore when it opens to get this LOL! Thanks for the heads up Rowena!
