“The Moon that Embraces the Sun’s” Kim Soo Hyun transformed into a local idiot! Earlier today, a photo with the caption “Kim Soo Hyun during a movie shoot” made its way online via various social media services. 

Currently, the actor is busy filming his latest movie “Covertly Grandly,” where he stars as a North Korean flower boy spy who’s dispatched to South Korea. While undercover in South Korea, he pretends to be a cute local idiot.  Just like the popular webtoon character he’s playing, Kim Soo Hyun is decked in a green tracksuit with a bowl cut hairstyle. His style in the photo is a stark contrast to Kim Soo Hyun’s normally clean-cut flower boy look. 

Netizens who saw the photo commented, “A shocking transformation. I can’t wait to see his movie,” “Looks just like the original character,” “I can’t wait!” “Kim Soo Hyun as the village idiot? Wow,” and more. 

Meanwhile, “Covertly Grandly” is aiming to premiere early next year.
