Huffington Post - over 3 years

Recently, I asked a group of more than 50 college students if they thought we lived in a patriarchal society.  There was some rumbling about Charleton Heston.  I asked if anyone could define patriarchy.  Someone asked, "Like in the Bible?" So, I provided Oxford's definitions: "A system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line and a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it."** That we live on a patriarchal planet is as self-evident as the wetness of water. Here are some thousand-word pictures: the United States. Great Britain. Iraq. Jordan. Egypt. Panama. China. Japan. Zimbabwe. Mexico.  Russia. Italy. Turkey. The U.S. again.  Saudi Arabia. Have you seen pictures of any of the major economic summits in the world? The G8? Even prominent leadership exchang ...

"I was never really interested in becoming a celebrity," So said. "My life was all about swimming and hip-hop music. I did modeling because I wanted to see Kim and also because it was the best way to earn good easy money."
  • 2012
    Age 34
    So's first mini-album (or EP) Corona Borealis was released in March 2012.
    More Details Hide Details It featured collaborations with songwriter Kim Kun-woo, vocal trainer Mellow, soprano Han Kyung-mi, and singers Huh Gak and Bobby Kim.

After portraying a workaholic detective in the cyber criminal investigative service in TV procedural Phantom, So starred in the film A Company Man, about a hitman in a killer-for-hire company who, after he falls in love and decides he wants out of his job, finds himself the target of his former colleagues.

    Age 32
    In 2010 So headlined the big-budget Korean War epic Road No. 1, but despite high expectations, the series tanked in the ratings, averaging 6% for its entire run.
    More Details Hide Details Following that, So published his photo-essay collection, So Ji-sub's Journey. The volume covers stories and photos over the past 13 years since his debut, using unpretentious language and sensitive photography taken during So's trips to the DMZ and Gangwon Province. The usually taciturn and stoic actor revealed his inner thoughts throughout the book, with essays on his favorite number 51 (reflected in the name of his company - it means a 50-50 probability then believing just 1% more; the K stands for Korea), Romeo and Juliet, why he likes rainy days, and stories about his interactions with other celebrities and artists such as Tiger JK. Within ten days of its release, the book hit the bestseller list, and entered its third printing. He was subsequently named the goodwill ambassador of Gangwon Province in an effort to boost tourism there, and a 51 kilometer-long trail in the province was named "So Ji-sub Road," which was unveiled to the public on May 20, 2012. He was the first Korean actor to have an entire road named after him.

    More Details Hide Details In I am GHOST, an action drama that aired in 24 five-minute episodes on Japan's mobile-exclusive broadcaster BeeTV, he played a mysterious killer on the run with a high school girl. So spoke no lines in the mobile drama, and was "worried whether (their) emotions would be delivered just through (their) motions." The year before, he had appeared in a supporting role as a monster in the Japanese manga live-action adaptation GeGeGe No Kitaro 2: Kitaro and the Millenium Curse. So starred opposite Zhang Ziyi in the Chinese romantic comedy Sophie's Revenge, saying, "I wanted to do a bright and cheery role because I've played so many sad and gloomy ones." He later signed with a Chinese talent agency, ATN Entertainment. So then returned to Korean television with Cain and Abel, about two doctor brothers with an intense sibling rivalry.
