Cover Wars (Men) – Gong Yoo VS Lee Jun Ki (South Korea)


They are two of the most eligible bachelors in South Korea. Both in their 30’s. Both handsome yet  strikingly different. One is a hunk the other is a quintessential flower boy.


GONG YOO for Singles magazine December 2013

One of my favorite South Korean actor. He has that boyish charm when he smiles. A perfect specimen of man-boy. It’s probably one of the reasons why many are enamored with this sexy hunk. For this cover shoot he flew to Jeju island looking right at home with nature.



LEE JUN KI for STAR1 magazine December 2013

He floated on everyone’s radar as the mischievous second lead in 2005’s My Girl almost stealing Lee Dong Wook’s thunder. He was whisked off to the military for close to 2 years and has recently made a comeback starring in 2 dramas Arang and the Magistrate, Two Weeks. He still has that “flower boy” quality with a blend of maturity on full display as he covers for  star1 magazine.
