Often, when I see this Oppa, I wonder, how does he do it? How is it possible to look better today, than when he debuted? Has he found some spring well hidden in the crevice of the earth secret from the rest of mankind? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not concerned about my age or getting older in the traditional sense… What I’m concerned about is how he continues to look amazing and what effects that fact will have on my aging body and psyche.
Yes, yes, I can’t begrudge the man for taking care of himself and honestly, what can he really do about the blessing of his genes? But seriously Oppa, all I need is for you to think of me, just think of me (well, us) just once in awhile— hanbon mahn is all we need. Call?
Name: Song Seung-hun
Oppa Cred: October 5, 1976
New Year Notice: Everlasting
Current/Holiday Status: Last seen in Third Way of Love and Wonderful Nightmare; currently filming sageuk Saimdang, the Herstory and trying not to get caught on dates with his girlfriend Chinese actress, Liu YiFei.
Unnichan: We’re talking about Song Seung-hun, now is as good a time as any to mention his new drama Saimdang. I love a good sageuk and it’s Lee Young-Ae‘s “comeback” drama (hate that reference), but I can’t help but be just a little afraid. But he is look A-MAZE-BALLS!
Ekun: Look, I never thought I could get caught up in a drama to see how a suit was painted on a man’s body until I saw Song Seung-hun. I know you all are laughing, but I am 100% dead serious!
Unnichan: I am. I am. But I also know you’re serious. That was back when you were torturing yourself during When A Man
Laughs errr I mean, Loves, right?
Ekun: Soooooooo, this is another one who is not so strong with that acting.
Unnichan: Wait, how many does that make it now? Kekekeke. And yea, he’s not but I don’t understand why he doesn’t stick with rom-com. My Princess was perfect for him. I’ve never liked his performance so much.
Ekun: But, I honestly do believe that he tries—sometimes I am with him. Other times, I am staring at his pretty. He has a lot of that to go around. Though, when I see him in interviews, he seems stunned by how much women adore him… We ain’t got time for that!
Drama Debussie: I don’t know who he thinks he’s playing. You got to do a lot of looking in the mirror to have that much pretty on point, and his pretty is ON POINT. Always.
Unnichan: Kekeekkeke. I know that’s right!!! He did admit to taking care of his skin… As if we couldn’t tell.
Drama Debussie: It’s the very least he can do to make up for his acting which can’t seem to improve even though he’s been working since forever.
Unnichan: I don’t really watch many of his dramas out of sheer fear. But he does seem to love his job. And I agree Ekun, he tries. At least he knows he’s not that great and accepts that. That’s why I say, rom-com, Oppa. ROM. COM.
Drama Debussie: I tolerated 1.5 episodes of Dr. Jin for him. That’s love!
Ekun: I did 6 episodes of Dr. Jin and the entire show When a Man Loves, plus the Japanese version of Ghost! If that is not love and dedication, it doesn’t exist in the world, you feel me?
Not Our Oppa, but My Oppa: E-kun’s Top 10 Picks:
Delicious. Just simply delicious. That is the adjective I often use to describe Jae-wook Oppa. When Jae Wook is not making heart beat faster and ovaries quiver in dramas, he is doing his music thing with his group Walrus.
The first time I saw Jae Wook was in Coffee Prince. He was so cute and reserved you couldn’t help but love him. Unfortunately, the last thing I saw him in was Inspiring Generation which inspired me to want to stick a fork in my eye… Over and over. Good choice for him getting out while he could.
As with all my Oppas, I want to see him in something in 2016. He is such a great actor and selective artist, that the role he takes will always leave you happy. Who Are You? was one of my personal favorites… Was it a mess to want them together over Taecyeon?
