Because of this photo which my officemate saw online, I had quite a funny conversation (more of a debate actually) with her. I was busy minding my own business (in short: not working) when she suddenly said to me: “Gong Yoo got fat in the military, right?!” I was up in arms since Gong Yoo happens to be one of my favorite Korean actors and could only say, “How dare you?! Gong Ji-Cheol is not fat!!!”
As I explained to her how Korean actors and singers usually end up really buff after serving in the military (Just like Lee Dong-Wook HERE), I searched for the old PR photos of Gong Yoo when he was still serving in the military and showed her photo after photo to prove my point.
Even after seeing this, she only believed me somewhat and said “Hmmm…so he lost the weight?!” 아이구!!! Just to be clear, Gong Yoo is not fat: before, during, or even after military service. Just check out those photos!
