Eye Candy : Song Hye Kyo & Song Joong Ki for W

Descendants of the Sun came to an end yesterday and millions of people including myself were watching. This just might be the most successful South Korean drama of all time given it's record breaking worldwide popularity and earnings. It wasn't perfect but it was highly entertaining and my Wednesdays and Thursdays won't be the same anymore but at least I'll probably be a little more productive haha. I'm still on a high but the withdrawal will kick in soon. Song Hye Kyo really shined as Kang Mo Yeon especially in the last few episodes. Song Joong Ki has been getting all the attention but she deserves every bit as much praise for her incredibe emotionally resonating performance. These two along with the drama better be sweeping this year's KBS drama awards. Anyway my obsession for the drama has translated into a bit of an obsession with the main OTP as well. And it's not just me since W Korea recently brought back this striking editorial of Song Hye Kyo photographed by Hong Jang Hyun from 2009. This has always been one of my favorite shoots as Hye Kyo took to the streets of Miami looking equally edgy and glamorous in a cropped coif, red lipstick and an assortment of chic dresses. I remember people were going crazy back then because they thought she had cut her hair but she was just wearing a wig and she pulled it off. You can probably pull off anything with her beautiful face though. And since Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki  remain inextricably linked for me cause like SongSongCouple, I'm also including a W pictorial featuring Joong Ki from 2011. Not loving his hair but the fashions are definitely sharp and Joong Ki had that smoldering gaze down even back then. If these editorials convince me of anything it's that these two must be vampires because they don't seem to age. It would've been awesome if we could've gotten a joint photoshoot like the one that Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won did for Grazia. or this amazing Vogue pictorial  that Hye Kyo did with her My Palpitating Life co-star Kang Dong Won. I suspect they're probably afraid that their real life chemistry would just be too obvious. Yes I'm still shipping KiKyo!

Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were both in the news this week as Joong Ki who was recently appointed an honorary Korea tourism ambassador accompanied President Park Geun Hye to the opening ceremony of the new K-Style Hub Traditional Korean Cuisine Cultural Center. And it was reported that Hye Kyo turned down a million dollar advertising campaign from Mitsubishi Motors due to the company's involvement in Japanese atrocities in World War II which is really admirable. Just declare these two the national couple already!

For anyone in the US who has been interested in watching Descendants of the Sun, it is now available with English subtitles on Hulu. It is also available with online with subtitles in multiple languages on Dramafever in addition to Viki.com.

Great editorial! I wish I could shoot photos like these. If an English version is available, or with subtitles, I would consider watching the show!

Stunning models and editorial have a lovely weekend.

Stella said...

I agree the 2 final episodes were not perfect but were good. I had higher expectations..
She looks so different with shorter hair, I prefer her with longer.
I think even though DOTS is over the film and cast will remain popular for a long time.
Even in the future something good comes out let us now... :)

A wig can totally change the appearance of a person. I used to wear a short dark one back in the days for some occasions, which was really fun, as my own hair always was long and blonde.

She is gorgeous indeed! Interesting how a new hairstyle can totally change an appearance of a women. I was thinking of getting a wig for this reason. It would be fun to play around with a short hair:). He looks very handsome as well. very cute couple indeed.

So, the series has come to an end? Well, you can always see it again when you feel like it. Sometimes it is really great to be able to watch something we already know and love.

You should definitely become a Descendants of the Sun ambassador, Rowena ;) Sorry to hear it's over, is there going to be more of it? I love the editorial with her. She indeed looks like a badass, but a sexy one. Have a lovely weekend, Rowena!xo

Jane said...

Oh has the drama ended already? I stopped watching it (episode before the earthquake is supposed to hit) but I've been meaning to watch it. The hype is literally everywhere. Some friends of mine were sharing the Korean SNL spoofs and it was pretty funny "descendants of the sun vs. real life" -- do you know what drama is lined up now to take this spot?

Oh, I love this girl and boy: they are so cool in this editorial!

It's interesting how different a person can look when styled like this, everyone cannot pull off a short bod cut whether in wig form or naturally, she does very well. I love the photographs here, especially in the garments with bits of red.

Rowena, thank you being my drug dealer when it comes to my SJK addiction...bwahaha! I've been feeling ill lately, but pics of these two always make me feel better:) Man....they just both killed it with these editorials. You're so right...they don't age! WTF?!?! That would be awesome if they can do one together...sigh....
Anyhoo, I''ve finished episode 11. I'm so not looking forward to episode 16 coz like you, I'll be going through withdrawal symptoms too....waaaaaaah! #firstworldproblems :D

Don't K-dramas go on like Western soap operas or series? Like Season 1, 2 or 10? Shame to end something that is so popular. And wow, that matte pale face with super red lips is stunning!

I know don't you hate when a show you really like ends or goes on break, does actually feel like it leaves a bit of a void. And wow she is a stunner. I always wished I was attractive enough to pull off super short hair, but nope.

Haha it looks like the Song Song craze is still going strong for you, huh, Rowena *_^ yes, who would get tired of these two vampires, right? It's like they have emerged from a time capsule and still look the same after all these years!! Unbelievable indeed.

If you had not mentioned, I wouldn't have noticed it was a wig, haha and what's with his hair *_^ but he still looks cute, no matter!

My hubs not too convinced that they are dating coz he says it's probably part of their promotional and marketing strategies for the drama. Oh well... (Rolling my eyes, haha) that Vogue Korea editorial is still one of my favourites of Hye Kyo till today!

Nice updates. Am looking forward to watching the last two eps on big screen (instead of a laptop) via recorded version on TV soon *_^

With love,
