Eye Candy : Shin Min Ah for Harper's Bazaar

Shin Min Ah is radiantly alluring in the September edition of Harper's Bazaar Korea. The actress wears Burberry Prorsum FW 2012 in the editorial titled Being Cinema Angel photographed by Kim Young Jun and styled by Yun Ju Kang. She speaks about acting and her comeback in the new drama Arang and the Magistrate in which she portrays a wandering ghost who has no recollection of how she died. I wonder if she might be cornering the market on gorgeous otherworldly beings since her last role was the titular Gumiho in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. I generally don't watch saeguk (historical) dramas but Arang might go on the list since it's billed as a fantasy melo comedy. The comedy would be a draw. I'm currently watching A Gentleman's Dignity and Panda and Hedgehog.

I'm still not around much since I'm still fighting vertigo and tinnitus. Thankfully it hasn't been anywhere as bad as before. My shoulder condition is improving. The inflammation has finally subsided which means a lot less pain and a slight recovery of motion which makes life abit easier.


  1. I love this editorial! Beautiful photos, she's an amazing model wearing one of my favorite brands, so it doesn't get much better than this, does it?

  2. It's a very nice editorial. Love these photos. These outfits are very nice too.
    Shin Min Ah is very pretty and elegant in these photos.

  3. Wow, she's breathtaking. These photos are just stunning.

    Good to hear you're feeling a little bit better. Hopefully, this is the start of better things to come!

  4. Min Ah is smoldering and I love the bathtub shot!

    I'm bummed to hear you aren't fully better, but am glad your shoulder has improved!

  5. Love her eyes and lips! And yay to your shoulder getting better! :)

  6. She looks insanely gorgeous, love the vivid red lips and fall fashion shoot. I also love the faux bob too, very well done. Wonder what shade that red that lippy is and who it's by...

    Little lady, it must really suck being poorly and not having fully recovered. I hope that it'll pass quickly so you're on much better form. Just wondering if you can get your mitts on those Chinese plasters that help with inflammation (Bao Zhen Gao patches from Chinatown?), they smell bloody awful but help with the pain too...

    Big hugs to you.

  7. O my Gosh! Look at that face, and that skin!!!! She is absolutely stunning! Wonderful pictures and amazing styling!
    I'm glad you're feeling better, my friend! Hopefully these problems will soon be just a bad memory...



  8. She takes amazing pictures! I love her hair.

  28. WOW! Shin min Ah is absolutely gorgeous. I love the last jacket she is wearing. I am glad to hear you are feeling better, but sorry to hear about the inflamed shoulder...yikes.

  29. I am so pleased that you're doing better, Rowena! :)
    And oh gosh...I think I have the biggest girl crush on Shin Min-ah. Her, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Lawrence are my favorites. Min-ah has such a diverse look - she can be so alluring and darkly sensual and then you look at Gumiho, and she was the cutest ever! AH. I can't wait to watch Arang!
    And oh, do you like Panda and Hedgehog? I'm contemplating starting it!

  30. I immediately thought of you when I happened to stumble upon Daniel Henney on Seducing Mr Perfect on YouTube. Up until recently, it was you who brought the actor to my attention. I watched the video and LOVED it! He's a good actor despite being so gorgeous looking. I've seen pretty awful acting by models turned actors.

    1. I hope you feel better soon :( I had an attack of vertigo a few months back and thankfully, it only lasted 3 days. I can't imagine what you must be going through after suffering one bout after another.

  31. Wow this editorial is so beautiful! I want those gold nails!!

  32. Wow, amazing photos!


  33. She is very pretty and these clothes make me really excited for fall.

    It took me a looooong time to get into her last drama, but not because of her. I'm not sure if I'll try the new one. I don't generally like historical dramas {or things with "corsets and accents" as I like to call them} and while a movie is okay if it's really good, and 18+ hour drama is probably too much for me. If you do watch it, I'd be interested to hear what you think.

    Madison Square Park sounds like a fun place to go for lunch! Every time you say you worked at Schumacher I think I should try it for a while, if only for the samples I might get {even scraps would be exciting}. I would definitely say there are colors that I shy away from for certain uses so I totally get your orange aversion - even if it's one of the ones I like myself.

    I'm so glad your inflammation is getting a bit better. Maybe the cooler weather will help, though I find my hands a feet crave heat when they are cranky even if I don't.

    I hope you are having a great long weekend!

  34. I love the photos you picked :) She's pretty, and so is your blog!


  35. Absolutely stunning editorial! The wools, leather, suede and dark red lips have me longing for autumn already! I hadn’t heard of her before so I will definitely be doing some further investigation! Hope you are firmly on the mend now!

  36. amazing pictures! followed you in gfc, hope you can follow back! http://xxxloveisbeautyxxx.blogspot.ie/
