Drama styling tips #5: Greatest Love

Haven’t done one of these in forever, yes? (Other dramas I’ve done in this series: Bad Guy, Moon Lovers, Personal Taste.)

So I didn’t really finished this drama — lost steam at about episode 12 and never clocked in the rest — but this was worth watching for styling inspiration alone. I’m going to take a gander and say that Gong probably styled herself, because Gu Ae-jung’s fashion sense is really reminiscent of Gong’s personal style. And I love me some Gong Hyo-jin personal style. Also, it doesn’t hurt that Gong has one of the most beautiful smiles ever ever EVER. I have such a crush.

Current state of drama affairs #5: Gong Hyo Jin

This is one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. It was shot during Gong Hyo Jin’s brief New York visit when she and So Ji Sub came to accept their “Rising Star of Asia” awards given to them by the New York Asian Film Festival.

Anyway, I’ve been a complete fangirl over Miss Gong the last few weeks. I managed to watch a good portion of “Thank You” for her (terrible drama, so circular in logic, really heavy-handed with the AIDs theme) and she’s a stunningly graceful actress. What I love about her is that she feels so natural and at ease. “Thank You” is a melodrama, so a lot of angst and tearing were expected, but Gong Hyo Jin has that quality about her that lessens your fear of melodramas, lol. Her expressions and her speaking don’t stress me out. Characters in melodramas, regardless of actor/actress, always have the tendency to act like the end of the world is coming, but watching Gong Hyo Jin act, I just felt like I was calmly observing a woman living her days peacefully, despite turmoil.

Right now I’m watching her in “Pasta,” and she makes watching a chef cook the same dish of pasta 75 times very watchable. Did I mention that I LOVE her speaking voice? There’s something soft and hard about it at the same time and her line delivery is always perfect.
