It's nice to still see the stars of Descendants of the Sun around in editorials a few months after the drama ended because it didn't seem like they did all that much promotion during the show's blockbuster run. And they didn't need to. I'm especially excited to see leading lady Song Hye Kyo following up her stunning Elle pictorial with a striking appearance in W magazine. Vogue tagged along with Song Joong Ki as he made his way to Hong Kong for the Dior Homme FW 2017 fashion show. Of course he was dressed in Dior. Sometimes he looks so mature and at other time s he still appears ever so youthful. The GooWon couple otherwise know as Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won have been no strangers to the magazines lately either. There have been rumors that if there is a second season of Descendants of the Sun, the secondary couple will be promoted to the leads. Now this roundup isn't all about DOTS and there are also a number of takes from other recent celebrity editorials. I've gotten questions, about why I feature certain celebs and not others. The answer is simple. I only feature people that I happen to like or admire in some way.
This is a great portrait of Jin Goo for Arena Homme+. It was recently announced that the actor's wife is pregnant with their second child and his next project will be the action thriller One Line which also stars Siwan of Misaeng fame.
Kim Ji Won goes retro glam in Sure and everything about the hair and makeup to the styling in this shot is sheer perfection! I totally covet her entire outfit especially that metallic pink moto jacket!
Kim Min Seok who was the adorable Private Kim Ki Bum in DOTS slips into flower boy mode in The Celebrity. The 26 year old actor is currently appearing in the Park Shin Hye drama The Doctors which I have absolutely no interest in. He moved into a new home last month and revealed that he was gifted a refrigerator and and a washing machine by Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki respectively. Now those are some super nice housewarming presents. It's really cute how tight the cast still is.
Jo Jin Woong is one of those actors who's equally believable portraying a good guy or a a bad one. His righteous Detective Lee was someone to root for in the excellent drama Signal and he is now making a villainous turn as a greedy treasure hunter in The Hunt.Kim Hye Soo definitely held her own as Detective Cha in Signal. I can't believe that she's the older of the two by 6 years. I really enjoyed her performance in how she impressively managed to distinguish the younger and older versions of her character. In a meta turn, she will be playing the role of an actress next in the film Familyhood.
InStyle magazine went backstage at the 52nd annual Baeksang Arts Awards for cool portrait series featuring some of the notable attendees. This image of Han Hyo Joo was one of my favorites. Not only does she look beautiful but her styling was flawless and really elegant.
Park Bo Gum has such a dazzling smile. I've only seen him on variety shows and he always comes off so well mannered and exuberant. His styling is on point as well. Love the dapper brocade tux and the hair style as well as the color. Black is so much better than that unflattering orangey brown that so many K-stars (or their stylists) seem to like.Yoo Ah In was a big winner for the lead actor in a television series for Six Flying Dragons. Some people felt like Jo Jin Woong should've won but Yoo Ah In did have to carry a 50 episode series and it was also a ratings winner. This BTS pic he shared with his fellow winners and friends on Instagram was adorable. He sat with the SongSong couple during the ceremony and acknowledged them in his speech. They share the cutest friendship!
