Sohn Ye-jin in Harper’s Bazaar
Sohn Ye-jin is featured in the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar, taking some time away from her latest movie project — Chilling Romance with Lee Min-ki — to shoot this spread.
Her look for this shoot is described as “a free-spirited and romantic spring goddess,” which is, as usual, an overstatement of the creative concept. I won’t debate that Sohn’s a goddess, or that she looks fresh and spring-like — but if you’re calling it Spring Goddess, I’m expecting woodland fairies and butterflies dressing you in flowers and moss, is all I’m sayin’.
I miss having Sohn Ye-jin in a drama — disappointment over Personal Taste notwithstanding — because now that she’s back to her movie career, we’ll probably be seeing less of her in the public eye. It’s one of those oddities of the industry where the truly big A-list stars are the ones that many international fans don’t know (I’m incredulous every time a die-hard drama fan shrugs about not knowing who Jang Dong-gun is, or Lee Jung-jae), just because those are the ones who don’t regularly appear in dramas. And while Korea can boast all the Cannes winners and Oldboy hipster-fans it likes, television dramas are really the bread’n’butter of the industry abroad.
So, ahem, Ms. Sohn Ye-jin, get on that drama project, stat! (And Jang Dong-gun too, while we’re at it.)
