Cha Seung-won's Movie Picks 2010/01/18, Source,
Korean actor Cha Seung-won [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]
At what biological age does a man's masculinity reach its peak? Many would guess the answer would be in their 20s, when the body is at its physical peak or in their 30s after they have matured more. But if you met actor Cha Seung-won, you would come to the definite conclusion that it is at the age of 40. "I put in a conscious effort to keeping my body in shape as an actor, but I can't help feeling that I have aged. The wrinkles around my eyes when I laugh... man". That was the modest response which came from Cha who has an unchanging statuesque figure and a beard like that of a foreign actor's. However, he who can even pull off the ever-growing number of wrinkles in style, has surely started to serve as the model example to a new form of male actors.
A model-turned-actor. It is one of the natural steps taken to become an actor nowadays but extremely rare when Cha first started his acting career 12 years ago. His presence alone looks like something from a picture but rather than using his stunning appearance to his advantage, he broke expectations and rather took on comedic roles. From such films as "Kick the moon", "Jail Breaker" and "Teacher Mr. Kim", Cha has proven he can make the audience laugh through such roles by covering up his model-like catwalk and instead wearing sloppy tracksuits, a prison uniform and last season suits. Cha is most often associated with the word 'cool' but he has realized eight years later that he finally has the confidence to fulfill such 'cool' roles. "If I was still in my 20s, I would probably have tried to just show it all with my eyes but I have gained more experience and I'm older now so I think I'm ready to take on roles that look cool in everyone's eyes".,...More
