Park Bo Gum and Song Hye Kyo's new drama entitled Encounter will air its first episode on November 28, and we are so ready for it! But we're here to talk about something else about Bo Gum: his hair. Over the past few months, he's been growing his hair out, to the point where people who weren't big fans of the style even dubbed it as his "bob cut disease." Grabe, harsh!  

ICYMI, his signature hairstyle (a clean cut) is back! During a press conference for Encounter on November 21, Bo Gum explained, "I didn't grow (my hair) out for my new project. I grew it out because I wanted to try it once but people were more interested in my hair than my project. Once overseas filming (in Cuba) was confirmed, I decided to keep my long hair because it matched well with the location."

Bo Gum and Hye Kyo's new drama tells the story of a politician's daughter named Cha Soo Hyun (Hye Kyo) who's forced into an arranged marriage that eventually leads to divorce. In Cuba, she meets easygoing Kim Jin Hyuk (Bo Gum), and...we can't wait to see what'll happen next. Only one more week to go, you guys!
