What’s with all the babies?


Yoon Eun Hye

 
Photographer Cho Seihon has unveiled his special photo spread featuring lots of top stars in his collection “Letters from Angels,” which is the fifth installment in the series begun in 2003 to raise awareness and support of domestic adoptions.

Cho said in regards to the aim of his photography, “I’d like for these photos to give someone one more chance to think about these children who have no homes. I also hope that many of these childrens will be able to find warm homes and happiness.”

The stars featured in the collection include Lee Mi Yeon, Yoon Eun Hye, Han Hye Jin, Kim Jung Eun, Jang Hyuk, Park Jung Ah, Lee Seung Gi, Wonder Girls, Seo Kyung Seok, Yoo Joon Sang, Hong Eun Hee, and more.

 


Han Hye Jin, Ju Ji Hoon


Jang Hyuk, Kim Jung Eun

Yoon Eun Hye said: “I really love kids in general, but today my heart aches. … I hope these children will be able to find good parents quickly.” The article notes that even after her photo shoot had finished, she remained in the studio for a long while to spend more time with the children.

Lee Mi Yeon said: “I feel like I have to do a good job so that this child can finish [the shoot] quickly without suffering too much. It’s a small thing, but I hope these beautiful babies can grow up in good environments.”

The Wonder Girls made this stunning, brilliant jewel of an observation after being peed on by their baby (the specific girl of wonder left unspecified): “Kids are okay even after ingesting pee.” WTF? The article praises them for not growing annoyed at the baby for peeing over them, but I think they must just lack the mental faculties to muster such an emotion.

Large-scale versions of the photography will be on display from December 19 through 25 at the Insa Art Center in Seoul, and can also be seen on the official website, http://lovefund.or.kr.

the babies are cute!!! Waw..*heart melts*
Poor babies, wish they can get good parents.

And for the stars, I wish there're more male stars were included. Man and baby's picture is ADORABLE..:D
BTW, Joo Ji Hoon's facial expression is kinda stiff, is he afraid holding a baby? ( and the baby is also looking at him, and think " What he is doing? He's not going to make me fall,eh?" hehehe )
Meanwhile Jang Hyuk looks more natural..( and the baby he's holding is incredibly cute ) Like it!

I clicked the site to see more pictures but the site is in Korean, and I don't know which one I should click to see the rest, can you help me? thanks!

aww...cute babies and sad that they have no parents. But on the bright side, they get to spend some time with those nice celebrities and get to experience what it's like to have a parent(s) for a day. I can tell from the picture above that YEH will definitely be a good mother someday. If I'm not mistaken, the baby is a boy. He sort of looks like a famous Korean actor.

I really like JH and KJE pictures - he looks so comfy with the kid and she just looks so maternal in that picture and the baby is semi hugging her back ^_^ The photoshoot in general is just really sweet.

I dunno but seeing Wonder Girls with all those babies really looks like they are endorsing teen pregnancy or something >_

You seem not to like Wondergirls? Your comment is, um, ouch? These girls are actually quite sweet. The one on the left in particular, Park Ye Eun, is also a rather bright girl.

I don't actively hate the Wonder Girls, but sweet or no, their talent-to-fame ratio is exceedingly low, and when one makes a brain-dead statement like the one above, I count them as fair game.

I guess I hold you above such remarks. Maybe it was my mistake.
However, is that quote correct? Ingested? Okay, well, that is rather odd.

For a girl group marketed the way they are, I find that at the very least, the Wondergirls as a whole have a sufficient amount of talent. They have just enough talent, and then they're very appealing, so that explains the fame. Well, it's all very subjective - that's just my personal opinion.

Thank you for sharing the article. I hope the Christmas season brings some warmth to these children.

*will just post YEH related parts

---
In preparation for the 5th anniversary of the "Angels' Trust/Letter (not sure of this one)" our studio is now very crowded due to the two newborns and five to six disabled children. Many notables have been coming to my studio recently, taking time out of their busy schedules to participate in this exhibition and helping these orphans to find a new home. This is perhaps a sign of the maturation of our society, and is not an uncommon sight. But what is particularly heartwarming, are the young stars who joyfully participated in the photo-shoot. This year, we have Yoon Eun Hye, Han Hye Jen (???), Nancy Lang, etc, young mothers who joined in good spirits, leading one to expect that this would be a spectacular photography exhibition.

In the process of the photo-shoot, something valuable I discovered is that, most of the participants joined for the love of the children. Like Yoon Eun Hye, who only spent 30 minutes taking the photos, but remained in the studio for 2 hours after to play with the kids and feeding them milk. When Yoon Eun Hye was with the kids, my studio felt like there were two mischievous kids, vibrant, boisterous and full of life and exuberance. In these situations, perhaps the strong maternal instincts in the female artistes are sparked by the plight of the orphans, explaining their behaviour. However, for the most parts, male artistes seldom express their feelings and love, or play together with the children.

Look at the baby in JJH's arms! Nervously sucking his/her thumb, if he could speak up, he'd probably say this: "Sir, I don't know who you are and why you're holding me, but PLEASE DON'T DROP ME! I'm feeling like I'm on the edge here!"

The way he's holding is... hmm.. just not natural.

Jang Hyuk looks like a proud father! He went all out to give the baby skin-to-skin contact! I adoreeeeee him!!!

All the girls seem to handle the baby very well.

In my opinion, Joon Ji Hoon's photo was the most amazing of all next to Kim Jeung Eun. It showed depth of what they were campaigning for. It looked stunning~

#3 reader, yah the baby sort of looks like so ji sub but actually I was thinking of another k-actor. And yup, that Ju Ji Hoon guy looks a little creepy (I think it has something to do with his hairstyle) LOL. The baby looks scared and uncomfortable which you can see from the baby's eyes and posture. He should have worn white top like the others, that might have helped. Ok, I'll stop criticizing the poor guy now.

i don't know much about photography. but there is nothing that particularly grabs my attention as much as the babies do. I like looking at the babies more than i like looking at the actors and popular people themselves. The babies look so clueless compared to the adults who are smiling and posing. The babies are more natural looking, because they are in a state of not knowing the situation they are in.

I'm sorry but from an artist's point of view, these photos are so bad in composition that they are good. That's what my professor would have said.

super cute babies!
I have to say my favorites are the Kim Jung Eun and Jang Hyuk ones. They look so natural holding the babies. Joo Ji Hoon just creeps me out in that pic. He is not making people want to love the baby he is holding....

The Wondergirl quote cracks me up...I can't even say anything more on that. Talk about a Clueless moment,eh?

my favorite picture is definitely Yoo Eun Hye's...she looks like how everyone should look when they hold a baby: happy. the others were good too, but i think its best to SMILE and BE HAPPY when you're with something so cute. i love the baby's hair in YEH's pic. hee.

mai, I'd have to disagree.

Even though I don't really think the actors should be looking at the camera as well... maybe the photographer wanted those actors to make contact with the people looking at the pictures. Since Korean advertising in so heavily reliant on using celebrities as brand names on top of products and causes....that type of composition is what they are going for. So basically, the photos isn't just about a relationship between the baby and the celebrity...it has a 3rd party that needs to get the message.

Plus, the celebrities is a good marketing strategy because it give these photos a bigger buzz and the cause a larger audience.

Yeah, this is one of the best JJH pics I've seen in a long time. I had to repost it elsewhere after seeing it on popseoul... just too good not to share. :)

I guess this sort of kills my scheme to adopt a Korean baby, though... I'll have to figure out some other way of getting a Korean (or half korean *shifty eyes*) baby, hehe.

wow, it's ironic that the stars look almost too perfect and it does make for an awkward feel when the stars look directly at the camera
more importantly, it's really sad that there are so many korean orphans looking for homes and not many koreans who are willing to adopt someone who doesn't share the same bloodline as themselves. is korea still one of the top countries "exporting babies"?

The babies are adorable. I laughed so hard while reading your post. Wonder girls pic looks kinda fake to me. I like Kim Jung Eun pic. She looks so soft and lovely as a real mother. By the way, thanks for your post. Your comment is stunning and straightfoward

I think Kim Jung Eun's picture is the most natural looking one. She really portrayed that motherly beauty. haha i was laughing so hard about the Wonder Girls comment. I agree with that kind of comment do suggests their immaturity. Well study hard girls, who knows how long they are going to be in showbusiness. Goodluck!

To be fair, the only reason JJH looks unnatural is because he's looking directly at the camera. The way he's cradling the baby is quite natural and supportive. Imagine the same pose, only, he's looking at the baby and not the camera - that's what a lot of parents look like when they're holding their babies, especially itty bitty newborns. The cradle hold, followed by the football clutch, are the two carries that most dads (that I know) rely very heavily on during the first few months.

Am I the only one who thinks YEH looks most "posed" of the bunch. While she looks very nice, who holds a baby like that? It's quite unnatural. LMY and the Wonder Girl on the left also look a little awkward like, Um, I'm not quite sure how to hold a baby, so this is what I'll do, but they don't look like they're posing like YEH.

The picture with Jang Hyuk, the baby looked surprised. Like he was thinking, "What the hell was that flash?"

And Ju Ji Hoon's picture made me laugh because the baby was looking at him like he's more interesting then whatever else was going on in the room.

And the wonder girls comment... hmm I've had a baby pee on me, and my emotion was, "little bugger, you lucky you have bad aim!" Was my little cousin and I got projectile sprayed but he missed my hair by 30 cm. Sometimes your first thought isn't rational, just trying to make a joke out of a funny situation. Can't really stand there and pretend you're not a little peeved.

lol @ Toya's comment. i have to admit jang hyuk's baby is my favorite for its adorably confuzzled look, although they are all cute. i don't quite get what's goin' on with the guy's flying-in-the-wind half-open ab-baring shirttails (i'm a model! i'm a compassionate baby-lover! i'm superman! (the uniform's in the wash)) but i give him a pass for looking so comfy with the baby otherwise. and kim jung eun does look the most maternal, which is the first thing i noticed in the bunch.

i like ju ji hoon's pic. i see many dads carrying their infants that way. his somber expression is fitting because it's a sad fact that these babies have no parents. i've visited orphanages and always go away feeling really down when i think of the rows of babies in their cribs.

jang hyuk's pic looks too posed and unnatural.

I also like Joo Ji Hoon's picture. His photo is the most haunting of all and it is the only one to leave mixed feelings behind. I think this is the way to go when campaigning for such an important cause. I don't think the pictures are supposed to make people feel good, in a "look at the cute babies, oh my, and the stars look so happy!" kind of way, the photos were made in order to compell people to do something AGAINST the state of the babies and Joo Ji Hoon does this very well in his vaguely accusatory gaze which seems to say, "look at this baby, it has no parents because YOU and your society won't adopt it." Sad pics are the ones that make people want to re-think their views, not happy-go-lucky ones. For this reason, Joo Ji Hoon's picture is by far the best out of the bunch for its original purpose.

Purely for aethestics, Kim Jung Eun's is best.

Contrary to what many think, I actually think that Joo ji hoon looks pretty natural and comfortable holding the baby even though he is not smiling into the camera. I agree with the others who think his is the best pic along with Han Ji hye considering the goal of the campaign.

JJH is surely super cool as a model but somehow not all picture has to look so model expression. I hope he can just spark the flavor of freshness in his posing. Model one thing. The natural love is one thing.

For me Joo Ji Hoon's campaign photo is the best because it "GRABS" your attention and "STAYS" in your memory in a discomfiting way. There is an intensity in his stare that compels one to react with the issue and not just a nice photo of baby and celebrity. Contrary to earlier comments, his was the most secure hold (the less likely to cause injury/fall to the child compared to the others). And I like his baby best because his expression was that of "scrutiny". Out of all the babies, he was the only one considering the actor for adoption. lol!
