This was supposed to be a slow news Friday. Only in my wildest hopes apparently. More awards news first – Moon Geun Young just bagged herself a Golden Ticket Best Actress Award for her stage performance in The Closer, which ran prior to the commencement of filming for Mary Stayed Out All Night. Congrats to Moon Geun Young!
That’s all good stuff, of course, but I am about a billion times more excited about the just announced press release from Basic House that their new spokes couple for 2011 will be…….Won Bin and Moon Geun Young. *cue Koala shrieks of disbelief and wonder* Below the jump will be some teaser shots of their upcoming photo spread.
Last year’s Basic House spokes couple was Kim Hyun Joong and Yoon Eun Hye (nice, very very nice, they had great chemistry and looked unbelievably gorgeous together), and this year BH just nabbed itself the current reigning box office champion of Korea Mr. Won “dimples” Bin, and the undisputed acting powerhouse of her generation Moon Geun Young.
What tickles my funny bone is this: Moon Geun Young’s debut drama was 2000’s Autumn in my Heart, where she played the younger version of Song Hye Kyo’s heroine character, and Won Bin played the second male lead that was hopelessly in love with Song Hye Kyo. It’s a little bit squicky to think that these two were in the same drama as the child and adult era characters. But when I see how young Won Bin still looks, and how gloriously adult Moon Geun Young now looks – well, I’m totally game for this pairing.
Gimme the pictorial, Basic House! I demand it now. I have no patience. *grabby hands, must have* You bet your doughnuts that I will be devoting an entire post to the pictorial when its released. Thank you, brilliant dude/chick at BH who had the idea to pair these two up.
