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!

    I enjoyed Coffee Prince where he starred. Hasn’t he done any series since?

      Yes, that’s one of my favorites as well. Gong Yoo hasn’t done any drama series since returning from the military. Although he just did two movies: Finding Mr. Destiny and Crucible (showing in Korea now).

      If you’re looking for a drama, I suggest you look for his old works instead. I highly recommend “Biscuit Teacher & Star Candy”. Don’t mind the weird title, it’s very good. (^~^)
