By William Schwartz | Published on
Recently released photos have confirmed that actor Song Joong-ki will appear in a photoshoot in the upcoming June issue of GC Korea. The news mark yet another victory lap for the actor following the conclusion of "Vincenzo" earlier in the month, where he played an Italian mafia lawyer. "Vincenzo" remains a big hit on Netflix, where it currently holds seventh place on the international Netflix leaderboard according to FlixPatrol.
In an interview to accompany the pictures, Song Joong-ki expressed strong respect for the cast and crew of the drama. Song Joong-ki also recalled director Kim Won-seok, with whom he had worked on "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" in 2010 and "Arthdal Chronicles" in 2019. According to Song Joong-ki, Kim Won-seok told him not to act, but to just be himself, and trust his own judgment. According to Song Joong-ki, such advice did much to help him focus positive energy on his work.
Song Joong-ki also appeared the science fiction blockbuster "Space Sweepers" earlier this year. Currently he is filming "Bogota: City of the Lost" which had been put on indefinite hold due to COVID-19. Song Joong-ki's agency HiSTORY has also promised fans on his new updates about the actor's work every Friday.
