Sohn Ye-jin in August’s Cosmopolitan

Sohn Ye-jin, most recently of MBC’s Personal Taste, is featured in the pages of August’s issue of Cosmopolitan, looking the complete opposite of the bumbling, cute Kae-in of that drama. Rather, this shoot portrays her in a much more glamorous style.

Sohn was interviewed while shooting the spread, and answered questions such as whether there are any younger actors who catch her attention these days. She said, “These days there are a lot of splendid actresses who stand out, but Park Ha-sun in Dong Yi caught my eye with her dewy-eyed look. I have the feeling she’ll become a good actress in the future.” As for the most beautiful sunbae, Sohn chose Lee Mi-sook (Cinderella’s Sister).

Asked how she maintains her figure, she replied, “I like to exercise. I work out four times a week doing Pilates and TRX, and I have a Power Plate [cardio apparatus] at home.”

Do you see why I was so confused when people kept complaining that Kae-in wasn't pretty enough? And I was thinking, "But...! It's Sohn Ye-jin! She's...... not pretty enough???"

True. It's always a bit odd to me when they cast a beautiful actress as a supposedly less than pretty female role, and think they can give off the illusion that she's not pretty enough by having the other characters call her ugly. It makes me wonder if everyone in dramas needs to visit an optometrist.

My girl crush!

I'm glad more people are now recognizing her because of her portrayal in Personal Taste. Most people first saw it for Lee Min Ho, and they had no idea who Son Ye Jin was. I mean, she's Son Ye Jin!

Random though: I wish she makes a cameo on Athena. Like Jung Woo Sung's ex, to relive their A Moment to Remember days.

@javabeans I totally agree. She just looked a little less polished, but Sohn Ye-jin was beautiful as usual. I was wondering, "What is WRONG with everyone's eyes?"

Cause the problem of me who hardly remember a name, I had watched PT but first look at the article "who is she?"

@7: Agree with you, they like to do that in drama, desperately make the actor look ugly by making the other actors say she is ugly. I mean..."This you say ugly?!" I think I want to look "ugly" too then...

I fell in love with her the first time I watched The Classic, and I'm a girl. If I were to get any plastic surgery, then I will like to go to her MD.

I would not have known that was Sohn Ye-jin if her name was not at the top. I thought she was pretty in PT, but she's really gorgeous. I need to see her in other dramas to get the Kae-in image out of my head.

@16
I am sorry but SYJ is way ahead as an actor compared to Julia Roberts. I can't stand JR's acting. She is always the same in every movie. She has never touched me like SYJ did in The Classic. Pretty Woman is the only movie I liked of JR and it was downhill since then.
I prefer SYJ's look in PT than these pictures. Here she looks looks so generic. I don't see that inner radiance that shines from her face. It's all hidden with make up. She actually looks plastic in these pics.

I totally agree with you girls... Now that might just make me faint from excitement.

Sohn Ye Jin is ABSOLUTELY my girl crush as well... I think she and I can be friends...LOL... I can't believe that there were people who didn't know who she was, or thought that she wasn't attractive enough on PT...

Can't wait to see her next project...

@15 Are you implying that Son Ye Jin got plastic surgery?...Because she didn't. She looks exactly the same in her childhood pictures haha. She's known for being a natural beauty.

I can totally see why so many actors/male singers pick her as their ideal girl...she's has this "pure" and innocent face...but she is also sexy and confident. (kinda like Shim Mina) If I were a guy I'd pick her as an ideal too...XD hehe

It's all make-up and photoshop; otherwise, she just looks as plain and old as in Personal Taste.

hello..here you are...it really must hurt u to see SYJ beautiful and glam bec you thought she was ugly in PT right? newsflash PSYCHO...it's called getting into the character that's how effective an actress she is...and she's always been beautiful from the beginning......

have you noticed you are the only one who says she's plain??? this is really something personal to you isn't it? i mean i also have actresses i don't like but when i see them looking beautiful i would admit it...but you....how old are you anyway? 2?4?

[i]Asked how she maintains her figure, she replied, “I like to exercise. I work out four times a week doing Pilates and TRX, and I have a Power Plate [cardio apparatus] at home.”[/i]

Only four times a week? -_- So jealous! I run for about 28 - 30 minutes for a 5K five or six times a week and then some weights when I'm with a gym membership again and not with her bod. I envy her genetics. Those must be extremely tough workouts! *this all under the assumption she doesn't do crazy dieting*

It is really nice though to hear about an actress actually exercising and liking it!

@kimlan their was probably some makeup and photoshop but not that much photoshop can be done to make her look that good.
I think she has a natural beauty about her, but her eyeshadow doesn't look blended enough and a little clumpy o.O

Do you think that she is telling you the truth.

In order for her to pose for those pictures, she probably had to work out strenuously every day for at least a month. On top of that, she had to starve herself almost to death to have that small waist as in the picture.

She was a kind of choppy and ugly in Personal Taste.

After dropping out My Way, she needs to do some thing in order to get another job offer.

Exercise and eat less so we can drop the pounds. No secret about it.

SYJ is a beaut, no doubt about it. But these days they airbrush the hell out of everything, it's hard to know what anybody's true shape is anymore. Because of the high-definition image in White Night, a lot of people who adore her image from Classic and earlier days, were talking about how much she's "aged" (a silly complaint, but y'know the pressure actresses are under.)

The White Night teaser poster (with Go Soo standing behind her both staring straight ahead) also exaggerated her chest-waist-hips ratio - although this fits the "femme fatale" idea they were going for that character.

Anyway enjoy it all with a grain of salt but don't kill yourself emulating a figure that's the result of multi-stage production by team effort :)

@ blahblahblah

Yeah, I thought her eyeshadow looked off too, but whatever...she's always been gorgeous. And she does always look glam at awards ceremonies. I loved that tangerine gown she wore at one of them earlier this year.

She's one of my girl crushes too, along with LMJ <3

Saw her first in Summer Scent, and after seeing her in Personal Taste, I do admit that she has aged a little. Which is understandable, really, as she's only human like the rest of us who ages. What makes her different from us is that she's an actress. But despite that, she's still one of the loveliest and most natural-looking actress in the industry.

Ed: Yeah, I didn't like the White Night teaser poster, but it didn't really matter to me. She's still Son Ye Jin.

Yeah, Son Ye Jin only had to exercise just for this photoshoot, because she was fat and ugly in her earlier works, and in desperate need of a new project.

At first I was thinking to myself that those who called SYJ ugly were crazy. But I understood what they were getting at. In many scenes, SYJ looked so old. She's never looked that way before, but her skin was getting a bit leathery, somehow. With makeup, she still looks gorgeous. I remember her in A Moment To Remember, and she just looked so young and vibrant. Unfortunately she's definitely lost that. She has a more mature look now, and with makeup, she can look stunning as she does in these shots. But her fresh face looks much older than her years. This is sad news. I am still a big fan of the woman.

she seems like she aged even though she's supposed to be 28 years old.

Seems to me that all the negative stuff being posted on her is just a microcosm of what Korean actresses have to go through, and why they feel so much pressure to get plastic surgery, or worse, commit suicide...

I think she has matured, not necessarily aged, but her acting reflects that too. She has more depth than a lot of the young actresses that are on now. I mean Gu Hye Sun is older now than SYJ was when she did "A Moment to Remember:, and their talents are miles apart.

I love this woman, and I hope that she continues to act until she's old. I only thank God that us normal women aren't held up to the same standards, I might be considered a relic by 30!

Down with the insecure claws, kitties.
She's a fantastic actress. She has brains. She's hot. She's human.

SYJ's backlash during PT reminded me of Kim Sun-ah in MNIKSS, people kept saying she was fat and ugly and all I could think was: yummy and luminous.

If she, Kim Sun-ha and Ha Ji-won got to do a Korean Charlie's Angels (with an actual plot) - with Lee Mi-Sook as Bosley - I would die of pleasure.

I thought she was pretty in PT but these pictures have been doctored alot. She looks like a completely different person. I understand it's all part of being an actress and all and I've nothing against it personally. I mean, who doesn't want to look their best on the cover of a magazine?
