    I like him in The Vineyard Man. Some fans are shallow to not like him with Yoon Eun Hye because he is not good looking enough. image

    I have to share a bit of my horde of Oh Man Seok pictures. image

    As Hedwig in the musical Hedwig (his character is a transvestite who dreams of being a rock star; it's based on the American movie Hedwig and the Angry Inch. It's a great film, although probably not for those who are squeamish about homosexual relationships, or even just sex in general. You can probably find it in a nearby rental shop. image ):

    Dahee Fanel, thank you for creating this wonderful thread.
    Oh Man-seok is my favorite actor beside Gam Woo-sung. Both of them are great actors.
    Ironically, OMS was Gong-gil in play "Yi" and GWS played Jang-saeng in movie "King and the Clown" image

    To my surprise, he totally transforms himself to his character. He's never been the same.
    Sometimes feminine, sometimes masculine... sometimes gorgeous and handsome, sometimes ugly and dirty...
    What a great actor! I'm now addicted to him. image

    Recently, Oh Man-seok is playing a country bumpkin in KBS drama "The Vineyard Man(포도밭 그 사나이)"

    QUOTE(homura @ Aug 21 2006, 02:15 PM) »

    > Why didn't they get him to play the role in the movie "King and the Clown"?

    Because Oh Man-seok is 31 years old. (born in 1975)
    He was 25 when he played Gong-gil for the first time.
    The movie company auditioned actors in their teens or twenties to look for Gong-gil, and Lee Junki was finally picked out.
    Instead, Oh Man-seok joined musical "Hedwig" and won the best musical actor award last year.

    Last month, I saw his last performance as Gong-gil in play "Yi". image
    He will be remembered as a legendary Gong-gil..... forever. image
