I can't quite get over this exquisitely beautiful Marie Claire editorial with Lee Young Ae lensed by Ahn Joo Yeong. The actress models a stunning array of hanboks and Cartier jewelry. Her fresh faced beauty certainly belies her age of 43 and this pictorial feels serenely modern despite the traditional dress. It's been over 10 years since she captivated audiences worldwide with her portrayal of a Chosun era palace kitchen cook who overcomes many hardships to become the first female royal physician in the epic series Dae Jang Geum (Jewel In The Palace). That was one of my first K-dramas and I remember being quite fascinated by the scenes detailing the painstaking preparation process of Korean royal cuisine as well as all the plotting and intrigue.
