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. :)

I'm borrowing homura's post regarding his wife and baby girl

Oh Man-seok's wife (Jo Sang-gyeong) is a famous movie costume designer.

(Old Boy(2003), The Big Swindle(2004), A Bittersweet Life(2005), Sympathy For Lady Vengeance(2005), The Host(2006) etc. )

He married at the age of 26. (Now, he's 31 years old)

His wife, Jo Sang-gyeong, is a famous movie costume designer. (3 years older than him)

Oh Man-seok and his daughter, Young-joo. :lol:

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

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. ;) ):

As Taek-gi in Vineyard Man ( :wub: ) :

And lastly, as Rocky in the musical Rocky Horror Show:

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" :P

Pictures of Oh Man-seok who played Gong-gil in play "Yi" (2000~2003)

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. :o

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

b0017289_1094169.jpg

> 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". :(

He will be remembered as a legendary Gong-gil..... forever. :tears:
