Eye Candy : Ji Chang Wook For Calvin Klein

To be honest, hearing the news that Ji Chang Wook had been named a global model/ambassador for the CK Calvin Klein brand which makes him the first Korean actor to represent the brand internationally made me both happy and dismayed at the same time. Happy because he is an excellent choice and dismayed that it took them so long to employ an Asian model in this capacity. The brand stated that they chose Ji Chang Wook because he embodies their young and modern brand image. The announcement made last week also unveiled images from the CK Calvin Klein Spring 2020 campaign.

Photographed by Christian MacDonald, the campaign which features Chang Wook modeling a range of casual and formal looks shows exactly why he was the perfect choice. Besides just being his usual  dashing and handsome self, he exudes a sense of cool sophistication that elevates the clothes he is wearing. The 32 year old actor who recently starred in the drama Melting Me Softly is currently making a decision on his next project which might be Night Convenience Store opposite Kim Yoo Jung. I dropped Melting Me Softly midway because the plot became so absurd but we just picked up The K2 and it's giving me a new appreciation for both Chang Wook's acting as well as his action skills.

  3. He's so stunning!! I'm a fan of him!! It is crazy to think he's the 1st Asian, it's something that should have been done a long time ago, it just shows that we still have more work to do in things being on an equal playing field. Loving him in these clothes :)))) x

  6. Is about time breaking the barrier of stereo type representing the modeling industry so glad he was chosen. He fits the looks handsomely is not who you are, is how you wear it. Have a great weekend.

  8. Thanks for this handsome eye candy. It's strange that he is the first Asian. I think it should have been done a long time ago. He really deserves it. So interesting to know about him.
    Love <3

  10. The black and white shots are surprisingly soft and so beautiful. Yes, the industry as a whole is quite behind for minorities alone, not to mention for women of colour, that's a whole other animal. Wishing you a lovely weekend, Rowena. :)

  11. This is great news. Though yes it is was very long in the making. But I guess better late then never. And brands are not stupid, the Asian market has more buying power then it use to, cuz ya know it is all about the money. He is a wonderful choice and the editorial is great whats not to like? LOL. Gorgeous!

  15. He's so damn handsome. And perfect for CK. I didn't realise he was the first Asian model to represent the brand internationally. It's great that they (finally) have and shame too. Hopefully this is a real turning point for fashion and equality. TBH I've never been as enthralled with a CK campaign as I am this one, the exception being to Marky Mark and the underwear one (cue teenage self!) hahahaha. I also wasn't a huge fan of Melting Me Softly. I did watch it till the end, but it did drag out a little. I wasn't a fan of Woon Jin Ah.
