At least everyone else seems to think so.
There is quite a lot of speculation that So Ji-sub and Ha Ji-min will soon be walking down the aisle together. The “Cain and Abel” co-stars have been spotted wearing matching couple rings on the pinky finger.

So Ji-sub is back with a new movie, confusingly called “A Movie is a Movie,” (영화는 영화다) directed by Jang Hoon. The press conference for the film was held at Ehwa Women’s University on August 12th 2008.
In the film, So Ji-sub plays a real gangster while Kang Ji-hwan plays a actor who is famous for his gangster roles. Ok, such a movie can work.
But, check out a short movie clip-with the cheesy drama music in the background, it seems that“A movie is a movie” is more like a love story than a tough action film (BTW, this is NOT the trailer, but POPSEOUL! can imagine that the movie will be similar).
“A movie is a movie” will fight its way into Korean theaters on September 11, 2008.
Why? Because So Ji-sub is going to be the face of little known domestic men’s brand, Sieg Fahrenheit. Poor guy. While others are getting calls from global brands or even creating their own brands (think Lee Jong-jae & Jung Woo-sung), Ji-sub has to make ends meet with a name I can barely pronounce in English let alone in Korean. In the mother tongue, “Fahrenheit” becomes “Parenheit”. puhaha.
Now that’s a classy name that will sell lots of cheap suits.
Check out So Ji-sub’s photo spread in the woman’s fashion monthly, W Magazine (Korea, November 2007) based the concept of the U.S. film, Brown Bunny. Many consider it as the worst movie ever. The photos were taken by famous photog who is known for his provocative style, Terry Richardson.
Warning! some pictures should not to be seen by the young and innocent. Seriously. (But, doesn’t that make you want to click more?)
