Song Joong-ki, you naughty, naughty boy…

Not going to lie. Despite my affection for SJK, I had zero intention of watching Penny-Pinching Romance because the description of Han Ye-seul’s character brought on a major case of eye rollage:

Hong-Sil (Han Ye-Seul) is a bit of an oddity. She doesn’t have any friends and lives her life extremely frugally to save money. (Why can’t she just get a real job?) She’ll rummage through abandoned homes, looking for items to resell for a profit. (She’d probably earn more money selling Bae Yong-jun’s garbage to his obasan fans in Japan.) She also collects glass bottles for recycling and takes a handful of sugar packs from coffee shops whenever she buys coffee. Hong-Sil also lives in the same low income area as Ji-Woong and her rooftop apartment is directly adjacent to Ji-Woong’s. (via AsianCinematic)

Han Ye-seul as a North Korean spy or a bitchy heiress, I can believe. I will even allow a stretch of the imagination and picture her as a rocket scientist. But HYS as a bag lady who doesn’t have any game or experience with men when she looks like this?

I will accept it if you tell me that all the men in the movie are blind. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Korea, why are the women in your dramas and movies working a dead-end job 98% of the time? It’s like there are only two occupations for women: maid/dogsbody/plucky heroine or heiress/princess/bitch.

And then I came across the movie recap over at Kaede Jun’s site and discovered this tasty little titbit: SJK plays a horndog who masturbates and watches porn a lot. So basically a 21st century version of Gu Yong-ha, then?

This I had to see for myself, especially since this is the image that comes to mind whenever I think of him:

Joong-ki baby, I think you should put that salami away. It’s scaring all the kids in the audience XDDDDD 

This is Ji-woong. He’s a gadabout with no job prospects but what he lacks in material wealth he makes up for with porn.

He has five very good friends who commiserate with him on his plight frequently.

This is…*mouth goes dry*  ASFGLKL;RKLMGSDSDKFJLWJEROEWURPOIUP09ISDV

I think we can safely deduce that SJK is making up for his lack of a love line in ALL of his earlier dramas. Note to Drama Gods: Please make him the lead in the next K-drama rom-com and include lots and lots of make-out scenes before he leaves for the army.

Joong-ki baby, all I will say is I am looking forward to your post-army shower scene XD

  1. Whoa… I was not expecting that make-out scene…:X I will be so sad the day he leaves for military duty. For now, I will patiently wait for his next drama where (hopefully) he is the lead.

    1. Don’t be sad! Think of the potential abs of steel (a la Lee Ki-woo, Jo Hyun-jae et al) that he’s going to have! But yes, he needs to play the lead in something already, though having said that I think his baby face is holding him back. He just looks so young and schoolboyish.

      1. OMG SJK with abs of steel will be mind-blowing LOL The ultimate baby face then BAM abs! :P Anyways, yes he needs a lead role asap. I agree that his baby is holding him back from more serious roles. If anything, he can always gain experience and improve through minor (but important such as in TDWR) roles. He will definitely be a leading man in the future, but the matter is… when he will get his first major lead role? I’m not counting Penny Pinching Romance and Wolf Boy :P

      2. yes he needs a lead role asap. I agree that his baby is holding him back from more serious roles.

        Yes, but the thing is that Kim Bum has a baby face but he’s somehow managed to circumvent that. I don’t know, maybe his agency just knows how to deal with these kind of things better?

        SJK with abs of steel will be mind-blowing LOL

        IKR? XDDD

  2. watching this for the make-out scene and the “porn” w/ baby faced lamb song joong ki. will wait for subs. where did you watch hungry with subs? mukai in the shower and food,that’s all i need bb.

  3. I know this post is obviously focussed on Song Joong Ki but this is clearly the best line…

    She’d probably earn more money selling Bae Yong-jun’s garbage to his obasan fans in Japan.

    …I actually cried. But, dear oh dear, these caps have me confused! The image of him, er, fondling himself + his pretty angelic face is really messing with my mind. Guess I will just have watch the film and see for myself (it’s totally sitting right next to me! I went and purchased it yesterday as soon as I read your recommendation~~ this better do my SJK fever some good *eyebrow twitch* Oh, and yes please, hit me with the post-military shower scene already xDD)

  4. Randomly browsing/stalking Song Joong Ki after recently watching Descendants of the Sun.

    “Joong-ki baby, all I will say is I am looking forward to your post-army shower scene XD”

    It’s like Kim Eun Sook reads your blog and decided to take mercy on you.
