Although it has been over a month since W–Two Worlds finished its run, its seems Korea has not yet moved on, as can be concluded from this couple shoot with Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Suk for the November issue of Dazed magazine. Although, I personally had trouble getting into W myself and dropped it rather early on, I admit this pictorial is pretty hot, with the pair looking exceptionally pretty in each others arms.
The upcoming November issue of Elle Korea features the always delightful Jung Ryeo Won. The actress models glamorous make-up in the shoot, with particular emphasis on the bright pink and red lipstick colors, which look exceptionally good on her.
It's been a while since we've heard from Lee Hyo Ri, who has been living a happy, quiet life with her husband away from the media buzz. Yet Marie Claire Korea still managed to interview the singer about her comeback plans next year, while also revealing the accompanying photo shoot on its webpage.
I have to say I really like this pictorial because of its low-key, almost serene atmosphere as Hyo Ri wears minimal make-up and poses against a countryside nature backdrop. There's no added glitz or glamour that you'd expect from a fashion shoot, which is quite refreshing.
Everyone's favourite lone wolf Lee Jun Ki from the currently airing Moon Lovers is featured in the recent photo shoots with Singles and Marie Claire. The pictorial for Singles can be found in the magazine's new November issue, while the spread for Marie Claire is actually from its September edition.
Actress Han Ye Ri makes a stunning transformation from recent role in Age of Youth, where she portrayed the hard-working and plainly dressed Jin Myung, to a beautiful lady as she poses for the November issues of Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire (via TopStarNews) in full make-up and fancier attire.
Lee Min Jung looks extremely stylish and elegant in the upcoming November issue of Grazia (via Fashion Seoul). The spread was shot last month in Italy during the Milan Fashion Week, which the actress attended as Salvatore Ferragamo's muse.
Hallyu lifestyle and fashion magazine Korea Wind Direction (韩国风向) features the always good-looking Ji Chang Wook on the cover of its October issue. Sadly, the two teaser photos from the interior spread are not particularly exciting concept-wise, but having a dog on the set definitely improves things in my book.
Go Ara recently posed for a pictorial in the October issue of the lifestyle magazine Style Chosun. Dressed in a variety of somewhat eclectic fall looks, the actress also got her hands on Fendi bags, which served as her co-models for the shoot.
In other news, Go Ara's will be soon returning to dramaland with the Silla period drama Hwarang: The Beginning, which finished filming last month and airs in December.
Checking back in with the dramas I've been watching. There was abundance of cute in Shopping King Louis, there was even more bad editing in Moon Lovers, there was an ass trying to not be an ass in Drinking Solo and there were three people starting a relationship together in Jealousy Incarnate. Hence, lots to talk about.
Park Bo Gum is equally snazzy and boyish in these new CF ads for digital media platform ALLETS (via TopStarNews), where he wears perfectly fitted suits along with a cheeky smile on his face. What a blessing he is, really.
This charming manga adaptation is a quirky mix of 50 First Dates and Sherlock, telling the story of a forgetful detective and her unlucky admirer as she goes about solving one-day cases and he tries to win her over each day. Despite its far-fetched premise and fairly simplistic plot, the drama is full of pleasant surprises and manages to be consistently enjoyable all-throughout. You won't find intricate mysteries here, but you finish each episode with a smile on your face.
Updates on Drinking Solo, Shopping King Louis, Jealousy Incarnate and somewhat extended thoughts on this week's Moon Lovers, where shit went down all at once. Again, I had no time to check out The K2, but since I have my plate already very full, I don't feel the need to rush into it right now.
