Ko Soo 's back

By :nonie2868



It has been quite sometime since we update our Ko Soo blog. For a while I am busy with my new obsession Yoon Kye Sang. But there are things about Ko Soo that I can't leave behind, so we try to catch up with Ko Soo latest issue. 

Love 911 synopsis : Kang-il is a 911 rescue worker who refuses to love anyone since he lost his wife. Tortured with guilt and regret that he wasn’t there for his wife when she’s dying, he loses all his will to live. Mi-soo is a surgical doctor who would do just about anything to achieve her goal, with no interest in love. One day, she is sued by patient’s family because of her wrong prescription and needs a witness not to lose her license, and that witness turns out to be Kang-il. Although she discovers that she was the very doctor who lost his wife on the operating table in the past, she tries to get close to him with the ill intentions only to use him as her witness. Yet when Mi-soo joins as a paramedic at his fire station, they slowly begin to fall for each other.
This year Ko Soo has been filming "Love 911" along with Han Hyo Joo (Spring Waltz). I love her in last year love story  movie with So Ji Sub as her co-star ; "Only You

Here's some stills from the film, enjoy !

Ko Soo as Kang Il, a fire fighter, I hope I can watch it in Jakarta, not always watching them on line argggggh!

Han Hyo Joo is Mi-soo , a surgical doctor. She looks so sweet as the first time I saw her in Spring Waltz

It's indeed so refreshing to see Ko Soo in love story film after the drama"Will It Snow For Christmas". These past two years he only acted in action movie, my favorite : Psychic and The Front line.



The latest news is the most exciting one; Ko Soo will return to dramaland, yeayyyy! I miss those beautiful eyes of him.  But why with Ji Jin Hee ? Don't tell me that Ko Soo will become the second lead actor, nooooo!  It's a historical series. During his carrier Ko Soo never acts in any historical story, will it be a sageuk drama ? Aww I am so impatient, hope we will see Ko Soo more in the future. But Ji Jin Hee acted in several sageuk drama like : Dae Jang Geum and Dong Yi......ottoke ?

KO SOO’S WEDDING (part 4) : THE DETAILS



THE RING


The ring in Ko Soo’s finger caused a fans frenzy since June last year. Somehow people spotted that Ko Soo's always wearing that particular ring in his daily life, but cautiously took it off when he attented the fans meetings or signing sessions. But Ko Soo never announced an engagement so he shocked his fans by the wedding announcement instead.

THE PRE-WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
 


  
 
The wedding photos were taken last month on Jan. 30, and a representative from The Third Mind photography studio said the photos turned out well.
“We went for the romantic look, portraying the two as if they were captured while on dates. Due to the couple’s good looks, every shot looks like a masterpiece,” he said.

He also stated, "The two people are so in love and fulfilled the atmosphere with the romantic tingle. The harmony of them both made their appearances from any angle seemed like a pictorial."

THE INVITATION

Ko Soo’s wedding invitations puzzled netizens due to it's plain and normal appearance. His wedding invitation, just like his personality, was short, simple and cut to the chase with no excessive glamor.

Unlike other top star's wedding invitations, Ko Soo's invitations did not even have a photo of the couple or any elaborate designs or fonts.
It just said, "We have become one in heart and chose to vow our love to one another. Please join us and bless us in this celebration."


Ko Soo personally called each and every guest of the wedding to greet and invite them, on top of sending out the invitations. Guests were pleased to see a modest and humble image of Ko Soo, as he asked them to bless him and his bride.

THE PRESS CONFERENCE


When actor Ko Soo walked down the aisle with his 23-year-old bride at the Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong central Seoul,  people were wondering about her. But in consideration of the fact that Ko Soo's bride is not a celebrity, she did not attend the press conference. So all eyes on Ko Soo... and reporters shot many pics that speaks louder than words to share.

KO SOO 'S WEDDING (part 3) : LOVE STORY



Everyone has a question mark in their heads about one thing : Ko Soo 's love story.
So reporters were crowding when Ko Soo held a press conference prior to his wedding ceremony on February 17 with his agency officials. The gorgeous groom bowed politely to the reporters, looked extremely happy yet nervous. He stated, “I’m feeling great. I thank everyone for showing so much interest on this happy day.”

Still, this quiet man didn’t revealed much about his bride, nor the way he proposed, nor the pre-wedding pics, nor their future plan. But he shared a bit about the love story with his other half. 




The happy couple met in 2008 through a mutual acquaintance. Ko Soo has fallen for her ever since so he tried to conceal his feeling, but then their friendly relationship naturally blossomed into a romantic one.

To a question asking when he decided to get married to his bride, Ko Soo answered, “I thought so from the first moment I met her. For a time we were very careful around each other and built on our relationship, but it’s been about a year and a half since we seriously started considering marriage.”

When asked how the groom and bride developed their romantic feelings for each other, Ko Soo bashfully replied, “I want to cherish that memory between the two of us for now. If I get another opportunity to share next time, I will do so.”



Ko Soo said about his proposal, “I proposed to her on the 365th day of our relationship. Because it’s a special memory between the two of us, if I get a chance to talk about it in the future, I’ll tell you then.”

Regarding their big age difference, Ko Soo stated, “I just have a little more worldly experience than her, but it does not affect in our lives. We actually make good conversation in everyday life. We communicate well with each other when making decisions. We would talk with each other and exchange opinions before making any decisions.”

He added, “She suits me so well, no matter what choice I make, she gives similar advice and offers the similar decision. I think we’ll be able to live without any serious problems.”



When asked what they call each other, Ko Soo said, “We just call each other anything. We don’t have any specific names for each other.”

About how he felt about before his marriage, he added, “Yesterday a lot of thoughts crossed my mind. I called my friends and talked a lot with them, and they all congratulated me and showed they were jealous.”


Ko Soo also said, “I remember clearly the love you showed me. I’ll do my best to become the best man, a leader of my family, as well as a good actor in the future.”
