When deciding who to pick as this edition’s Oppa I was having a difficult time, there are so many Oppa’s that I want to honor with their own post. But then I was struck with a moment of inspiration, why not dedicate this week’s Omo Oppa to my Sunbae-nim Kfangurl! Her love for Gong Yoo is the stuff of legends! Now I adore him as much as the next fangirl, however, I doubt anyone’s adoration could outdo Kfangurl in her Gong Yoo devotion!
Because I’m still so new to dramaland I’ve only seen Gong Yoo in Coffee Prince. However, from the first moment he crossed my screen I fell head over heels in love.
Not only was he gorgeous, but he showed a wide variety of emotions and range with his delivery. The way he expressed himself made me adore his character. I’m sure it helped that the character was well written, but I doubt that anyone else could have pulled it off as convincingly.
It really isn’t the fangirl in me, but if someone other than Gong Yoo had played Choi Han Kyul then it wouldn’t have been as realistic. There is something completely natural and real about Gong Yoo that very few actors have, its just something that can’t be faked.
After quickly devouring Coffee Prince I spent a little time (pronounced a lot of time) on the Gong Yoo tag on Tumblr. There I fell even more in love with him. The amazing folks of the fandom posted interviews, articles, pictures, and gifs galore!
Which only made me adore him even more. I mean come on, his smile is just the best.
He’s delicious to look at, I could gaze at him for hours. Though, he also seems to be a good guy with a humble personality. All things that just made like him more and more.
Please join me in welcoming Gong Yoo to the ranks of Oppa! This one’s for you Kfangurl!
