Model-turned-actor Kim Young Kwang recently posed for the May cover of men’s fashion magazine, Geek.
During the interview with the magazine, he was asked to explain why he said he wanted to be a sex symbol in a previous interview. “At the time of that interview, Mickey Rourke‘s past photos were a hot issue. I thought, ‘he used to be so cool, what happened?’ But then I realized that he was a symbol of his generation, and I really envied that. If I earned a title, like ‘sex symbol,’ it would be because people perceive me that way. I was a kid when Mickey Rourke was in his heydays. […] Being talked about after all this time, I think that already means that you are successful. I also want a title like that.”
