A List of Gong Hyo-Jin

I’ve officially contracted the plague. I’m calling in sick to school today and sleeping. Luckily, I was wise enough a few months ago to prepare a few posts for just such an emergency. Enjoy!

As I finished up my last list of Kim Soo-Hyun, I realized all my thoughts in the prospective next lists were guys. And there’s really no reason why that has to be the case, since I can appreciate a good actress as much as any actor. Of course, I would have to shift the focus a bit from purely “dang they’re hot” since, y’know, I’m a girl–but I’ve been meaning to make that shift anyway. So here it is, and isn’t she amazing?

A List of Gong Hyo-Jin

She’s kind of my woman goals. She makes me think of Audrey Hepburn, really. Just a classy lady. I made an initial search, just her name, and got a few really great pictures–ones that I think capture my image of her as a woman and an actress.

Digging a little deeper, I wanted to see what expressions I could find. She’s always been a talented actress in my eyes (Master’s Sun remains my favorite role of hers), but I wanted to see what expressions a single photo could convey.

Happiness was up first, because I love her smile. She has a way of smiling that makes you want to see the better side of life yourself–to smile and look for the silver lining… or even a gold one.

Which isn’t to say she can’t make you sad with a smile, as I know she can. I found a few rather heartbreaking examples (they made me want to rewatch the Greatest Love)

Or even feel a little bit scared. You don’t often see her scary or play the bad guy in a movie (I’m looking forward to watching her movie Missing to see another darker role). I looked for a bit more of her weightier acting and liked these:

But I think I like this look on her better, when she’s just being contemplative. I think she makes for a very classy thinker. It also comes in all shades of emotion–sad, serious, happy, rebellious. It’s some serious skill–on everyone’s part–to makes such great images.

And I wanted to end on my favorite expression–and character–of hers: the hardworking, down on her luck, quirky woman. Call them a Candy character if you will, but she has a way of drawing in her audience and endearing herself with them, gibing them her heart and spunk enough for you to root for them.

And that’s Gong Hyo-Jin! I really love her projects and feel a little bit bad I got so much Second Lead Syndrome in Jealousy Incarnate–I might have enjoyed it more if I rooted for the hero like I did for her. Thanks for reading!
