Well, October has also seen the 78-year-old actor gain attention for literally being the most badass person in his recent editorial for Arena Homme.

Yet, rather than a traditional photo shoot, Oh Yeong Su actually shocked fans when his pictures were a collaboration between the sports brand Adidas and luxury designer Balenciaga.

In one of the first shots, the veteran actor is sporting a red and white tracksuit. Yet, he threw all expectations out of the window, teaming them with black leather gloves and red stilettos.

Throughout the images, the actor sported a style combining sports, youth, and gender-defying looks. Despite being nearly 80 years old, the actor easily put models to shame with his poses and seemed like he’s been doing it for years.

Along with the leather gloves and heels, Oh Yeong Su sported what seemed to be a striped handbag, showcasing that fashion really has no gender.

Korean society has often been seen as very traditional, and many have put it down to the views of the older generation. Yet, Oh Yeong Su has proved that it isn’t the case, not conforming to any gender stereotypes with his look.
