U WEEKLY: PARK BO GUM — ANSWER ME, HOLLYWOOD
February 24, 2017
Singapore’s U Weekly issue no. 586 features Park Bo Gum on the cover as he accepts a private interview for the magazine.
The name ‘Park Bo Gum’ means “Holy Sword shining on earth”. Whether or not it shines on earth we shall not know, but one thing is certain, this “Bo Gum” (Literal translation: Precious Sword) is like a small sun that shines on countless girls’ hearts.
Park Bo Gum (age 23), along with Gong Yoo (age 37), Song Joong Ki (age 31) and Yoo Ah In (age 30) are now claimed as the “Four New Hallyu Kings”. In the eyes of South Koreans, Bo Gum always comes up in people’s conversation. Exuding full positivity with zero scandals; he is courteous and well-mannered; his signature smile is invincibly warm. Recently, South Korean media have also given him a new nickname — ‘National’s baby deer’ due to his deep and bright eyes seemingly giving off a sense of seduction, and once you are attracted by him, your heart unknowingly becomes kind too. It sounds rather exaggerated, but those that were baptised by the Holy Sword will tell you, it really is that healing.
My comment in blue: OMFG. Who wrote this? Not only it is exaggerating, it’s a tad too cheesy. It feels like she’s stealing the Healer’s tagline, and the fact that Bo Gum is Christian so she mixed them together and applied it on Bo Gum, LOL. Did the writer ate rojak* for supper when composing this article? *The term rojak also means “mixture” or “eclectic mix” in colloquial Malay.
Healing Male God talks about Hollywood, music dream and discloses his wish for freedom…
Getting a little tired of everybody abusing ‘healing’ and ‘male god’. Last I checked, Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho, Lee Jong Suk, Ji Chang Wook and a whole bunch of big shot male actors were also crowned as Male Gods. Just how many Gods are there? It’s so overly used these days that the term doesn’t even hold that special meaning it once had. Besides, Bo Gum worships God (i.e. the real one we can’t see), it’s a taboo in reference to this: ‘Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.’ DREAM OF FREEDOM: PLEASE GRANT ME SOME PRIVATE SPACE
