Eye Candy : Editorial Roundup

Ji Chang Wook, Ji Chang Wook Ten Star, Ji Chang Wook 2017

I usually save interesting editorial images as they catch my eye and I just realized that it's been awhile since I've shared any so here we go...  Kicking it off with rolala loves favorite Ji Chang Wook who is giving off tropical vibes in Ten Star. It looks like Chang Wook will be squeezing in one more drama before enlisting for his military service. And I'm excited because it's a romcom for a change from all the action he usually does and his leading lady Nam Ji hyun is a real actress as opposed to a pop idol. Suspicious Partner will begin airing in May. Most of the editorial images I've been drawn to lately are portraits. As a former portrait photographer, I think the best ones tend to capture a little bit of the subject's personality as well as a particular moment.

  6. Oh man! So much to drool on...teehee. My love for Jo In Sung has not waned so that's my fave for sure, but seriously loving all of them. I think Moon Chae Won is just so beautiful, and Hyun Bin still looks mighty fine after all these years:D And thanks for the heads up about the new JCW show! Yay!
    Have a great weekend, chingu!

  7. Love the editorial as always! Beautifully taken photos! Have a Great weekend!

  8. Ji Soo's top is gorgeous! Ahh and Daniel Hennessy - haven't seen him in a while and he still looks fab!

    1. Ahh I don't know why I wrote Hennessy! But you get my drift ;)

  9. I really like these selections, the Kang Dong Won editorial is one of my favourites I think also because I love the overcoat he is wearing. Thanks for sharing, Rowena! You certainly have a eye for photography. :) Happy weekend!

  10. I totally recognize Daniel Henney. His photo is great!


  11. Beautiful images! Your selections are always so inspiring. In the case of this post, the first and last images have both really caught my eye thanks to the contrast of fashion with nature (those leaves!!).


  12. Ji Chang Wook is a cutie. :) So is Hyun Bin :) OMG Daniel Henney :) LOL I feel like a teenager reading this post. Thank you so much for this much needed eye candy session :)

  13. Ciao Rowena
    You always inspire me with these posts

  14. These are stunning editorials as always, Rowena but what caught my eyes is the makeup. How the eye liner seems to fall downward following the eye lashes line. I need to give that a try and see how I like it.

  15. Perfect eye candy to start the weekend off right :)

  16. Beautiful selection of editorials with an accent on portrait photography. I do agree that the best portrait photographs are those that capture the personality of the person that is being photographed...they don't capture the moment, they capture something of the essence of that person...and that takes talent. I imagine it is also important to make the model or whoever it is that is being photographed feel at ease. Today I see a lot of celebrity photographs that all look the same...especially when they get a bit wild the photoshop and editing. It is so refreshing to look at a photo and feel like you're actually seeing that person, not just some pose.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. Another wonderful roundup of inspiring editorials. And I like that you focus on portraits. Yes capturing a person's personality is key but not as easy as it looks.

  20. My favorite is Daniel Hennessy(LOL at LLL's comment ;p), too! But Lee Dong Wook looks so intriguing here - doesn't he remind you of Tom Hiddleston for some reason..?! ;o

  21. Lovely selection! Happy sunday!:)


  22. JCW looks amazing as always!


  23. Why they always have that lovely, porcelain skin! I like!
