Eye Candy : Song Hye Kyo for Elle

Song Hye Kyo dazzles in an array of glamorous Dior Pre-Fall 2015 looks in this Elle Korea editorial photographed by Ahn Joo Young in Paris. In the accompanying interview, the beautiful actress spoke about her upcoming project, Descendants of the Sun in which she will be portraying a doctor and she expressed that her character would be bright and optimistic much like Han Ji Eun in the popular Full House. She also complimented the talent of her leading man Song Joong Ki with whom she'll share a romance against the backdrop of a fictional war zone. There were some ridiculous complaints when the casting news first came out for this show with people complaining about Hye Kyo looking significantly older than Joong Ki. While there may be a 4 year age difference, she hardly looks 33 and those worries were hushed when photos from the drama's first script reading were recently released. Descendants of the Sun which is Song Joong Ki's first project following the completion of his military service will begin filming soon overseas. I think this one will actually be fully completed before it airs later this year which is a departure from the usual live shooting process that Korean dramas usually employ.

Jane said...

there seems to be a lot of pairing of younger guys vs. older women in dramas! I feel like I've seen that a few times elsewhere. So weird about the backlash!

The picture of her in the red dress and the knee cut boots is absolutely stunning! She's such a gorgeous woman and I can't believe she's 33! She doesn't look her age at all!

She looks absolutely flawless! It's really weird for me nowadays when people can't accept an older female than the male. It's 21 century, hello! Have a nice weekend, Rowena! xo

Hi Rowena,

haha, law of attraction, I just saw her in The Crossings by John Woo last night and I have to say that she is a really professional actor. At least she put in the effort to memorize the Mandarin lines and speaks pretty well. At least, I do believe that the character that she plays speaks Mandarin.

As always she looks stunning in the film. I love the way the film was shot. Very cinematic and quite a story.

I had a funny feeling I would probably see this blog post here when I first saw these editorial pics, haha *_^ So, I refrained myself and shared them on my FB instead.

I guess we love and share quite similar liking towards things and beauty! so awesome.

big hugs,
Jeann

JeannLiew | Luminnej said...

Oh I do totally agree with you on that, this is not her best editorial but somehow the pieces are so stunning that it worked *_^

Oh I do have quite a huge hunch that it was dubbed already but I meant she lip sync it so well that it could almost past off as believable, haha.

In anyway, she is always stunning and gorgeous. She plays each character so well that you believe she is blind too! that's the making of a great actor, I feel.

Thanks for dropping over! Talk again soon.

big hugs,
Jeann
