It's that time of the week again, folks... K-Pop Idol Featurette! And this week, I'm doing a request from Bessie to feature a drama actor she's been recently introduced. And of course, I couldn't say no to that haha :) So peepz, feast your eyes on Song Seung Heon!
: Song Seung Heon (송승헌)
: Song Seung-bok (송승복)
Nickname: Tough Guy
Song Seung Heon (SSH) started his career as a model for a jeans brand, Storm in 1995. Soon after that, he entered the world of showbiz with stints in sitcoms and TV dramas. SSH debut in television was in 1996 when he starred in the sitcom, Three Guys and Three Girls. His most famous dramas are East of Eden, Autumn in My Heart, Summer Scent and his most recently concluded drama, My Princess.
Apart from doing dramas, Song Seung Heon also starred in various movies. His first movie was Calla released in 1999. In 2002, he starred in the Hong Kong movie, So Close, along with Karen Mok, Shu Qi, Zhao Wei, in that movie he plays Yen, the love interest of Shu Qi's character.
In 2004, he starred in the movie, He Was Cool, a movie based on an internet novel. The movie didn't hit box-office though, because its release was scheduled along with Harry Potter and other box-office hits of that summer. (Sidenote: I had seen He Was Cool in the past, and doh.... I just found out whilst making this featurette that he was the lead actor, doh!!! >.<")
Song Seung Heon entered the compulsory military service in late of 2004. However, this has spurred quite a controversy because it was later found out that he feigned illness in order to avoid military duties. In the past, his claims to have high blood pressure and diabetes allowed him to avoid being drafted, unfortunately, he got busted so he apologized profusely to the public and his fans and immediately enlisted and served his 2-year term in the military. He was discharged with the rank of Corporal in November 2006.
It is but plain obvious that Song Seung Heon is a hottie. That piercing stare that makes you go weak in the knees, those killer abs, and manly charm captivates women of all ages. He's been linked to numerous actresses including Son Dambi, Sung Yu Ri, and his recent leading lady whom he shared much chemistry with, Kim Tae Hee.
Despite all of this, he is, single. Yes, you read it right, he's single. In an interview a day after My Princess was first aired, he was asked about his plans about marriage, and he replied that he wants to have a good family, however he finds that a bit difficult at the moment since he doesn't have a girlfriend. He stated that maybe one day, he will meet his soul mate and he would marry her. I'll bet you a thousand bucks every fan of SSH is wishing she is the soul mate he's been searching for.
Another tidbit I found whilst digging for juicy gossip about him. Apparently, this hottie not only steals the hearts of the ladies with his good looks and killer bod, he can croon his way into the hearts of women as well! In 2003, Song Seung Heon released a CD titled, Song Seung Heon Volume 1! The album contains 11 tracks including a collaboration with Shin Yeon-Ah from Big Mama for the song, I Love You. You can check out his album in yesasia.com.
And are you wondering what Song Seung Heon is up to these days? Well, he is currently busy working on a secret global project, Lucid Dream. Lucid Dream is a mono tailor-made especially for Song Seung Heon. He had started filming this project last month and is tentatively scheduled for release in the first half of 2012. So, ladies, stay tuned for that!
And to end this post, let us all pause and ogle at the 6-pack that convinced me to feature this hottie...
