So Ji Sub the Rapper?
Actor So Ji Sub has transformed once again – this time as a “homme fatale sexy hip hop guy”. The second music video teaser for his song “Pick Up Line” was released today (Feburary 14th) on his official website (www.51k.com / Note: must be a registered member to watch) and on Mnet’s website.
“Pick Up Line” is a funky hip hop song featuring the talented musician “Shi Jin”. Wearing a clean suit and a pair of sunglasses, he exudes the “homme fatale” charisma. On the other hand, there’s another scene in the music video where he’s wearing a leopard print jacket with his hair ruffled up, showing off more of a “sexy hip hop” image. His rap is tough and sexy and the choreography is full of energy.
You can see comedians Jung Joon Ha and Kim Byung Man in there, too!
When asked why he took on such a challenge, So Ji Sub says that he wanted to show the public the side of him that he normally likes, not necessarily to create a new image for himself. Rather than being stuck in the character that the majority of the public has made for him, So Ji Sub wanted to show his true self, even if it’s an image that might not be appreciated. “I want people to see me and say, ‘Wow, that person’s really unique. He’s taking on something that most other people wouldn’t take on,’ rather than ‘How cool. That’s new. I’m looking forward to it,’” So Ji Sub said. “I want people to see it as me trying to show them and enjoy with them the real me, just like when I released my photo essay.”
The full song and music video for “Pick Up Line” is scheduled to be released on February 17th. Make sure you check it out!
