Kim Bum wasn’t kidding when he said that he has to go topless in many scenes for jTC’s drama Padam Padam, which airs tomorrow. (Or tonight, if you’re in that part of the world right now.) Not that I’m complaining of course, but it looks as if this will be the first of many half-nekkid eye-candy for us all. My only question is, what the heck is Jung Woo Sung and Kim Bum doing in a shower together? I know that Kim Bum’s character, Kook Soo, is supposed to be Kang Chil’s (Jung Woo Sung) guardian angel, but I didn’t expect that they’ll be taking showers together. Really, Show, you just gon’ keep surprising me? First it was the hand-holding (see link above), then comes the shower scenes? Ahhh, bring on the bromance!
These newly released stills have been attracting some attention online right before Padam Padam’s premiere, and you can probably guess what’s the hot topic of the day is — Yup, it’s ze abs. It’s evident in these photos that Jung Woo Sung and Kim Bum, especially, have been working out in order to show off their well-toned bodies in preparation for their topless scenes. Kim Bum is probably attracting even more attention since he’s taking on a character that contrasts starkly from the usual innocent, sunny images his previous characters have had. Instead, his image is darker than any characters he’s played before.
As much as I love seeing “chocolate abs,” I do confess that I miss seeing the playful Kim Bum back in Boys Before Flowers, the one that had a Ph.D degree when it came to flashing killer smiles that could slay any fangirl. Or perhaps just me.
Padam Padam will air tomorrow, December 5th, on cable channel jTBC.
I need this drama to air right now! Eeeeeee!
