Jung Yumi glams up for the magazines

It’s shoots like this one for Cosmopolitan that make me think back to Que Sera Sera, when Jung Yumi’s character is brought to a store for her makeover moment, and the sales associate declares that she’s a “cute” type and dresses her like an overgrown child…and Lee Kyu-han steps in and declares that no, she’s actually quite sexy, and then…suddenly she’s a whole new person.

It’s the complete opposite from her most recent project, that’s for sure; Jung plays a social worker in The Crucible, the film based on real-life rape and sexual assault cases at a school for the deaf. It has met with tremendous response, both at home and abroad, and naturally calls for a more sober, toned-down image than this one.

Or the one below, which comes from last month’s L’Officiel Hommes, where she takes on a look that’s more boyish, but similarly glam. Jung Yumi is definitely a chameleon — both in her appearance, and her acting. (Although it should be noted that she’s not so much of one that one should confuse her with the actress in Thousand Day Promise, who’s a different Jung Yumi entirely.)

I didn't think she look beautiful in Que Sera Sera even when she got glammed up for the party scene but yay for these mag spreads! looking gracious in the Cosmopolitan.

Isn't she looking like Yoko Ono for Officiel Hommes? Specially the 3rd last photo ^^

She is quite a Chameleon like Han Ga-in is. They are natural in photographs and in their acting. I love the gold dangling bits in the first photo. They make her skin look amazing!

hmmm ... i beg to differ. Han Ga In is nowhere near Jung Yumi when it comes to acting talent.

Me too. I like her with long hair and that 'back necklace' is so lovely (I want that!).

She is gorgeous. I haven't seen her in anything though and only heard of her recently through the Crucible posts. I'm so looking forward to watching that even if it'll be hard watch.

Ya know her in the "cute" picture resembles the Japanese actress who played Nodame in Nodame Cantabile. Like freakin twins man.

Ueno Juri (who is such a GREAT actress)

Jung Yumi

They have the same 'look' in terms of fashion and acting style of the moment. But in terms of actual features they are quite different I think! However, both are stellar actresses.

Wow - I pulled up the "cute" link and was immediately taken aback at the similarity to the second lead actress in ATDP - startling!

I really want to see this movie!

I'm glad it's getting noticed here... hopefully they'll premier it in the US (and by the US, I mean Chicago, please!!!)!

Those are some killer shots. It's making me want to cut my hair short again! But I never looked as great with it as she does.
Can't wait to see The Crucible. At the same time I don't know if I really want to. It's such a horrible subject matter, and on top of that it's dear Gong Yoo playing the perpetrator. I don't try to pigeon-hole actors normally but the trailer just made me so uneasy.

Steamy Bun, Uneasy in what way? Gong Yoo in the role, the subject matter or both?

Steamy Bun, I think you may have misunderstood the trailer. Gong Yoo is a new teacher who comes to the school, discovers the children are being abused, and fights to uncover the truth with the help of Jung Yumi, the social worker. You don't have to worry about him being the perp.

Her character makeover in Que Sera Sera was the best I've seen so far. It was like looking at a whole different person that night (forget what episode).

Notwithstanding the 2nd set of photos which are pretty bad (awful makeup), Jung Yoomi has what I like to refer to as a "quite beauty."

One isn't necessarily instantly drawn to her beauty, but when she smiles, she lights up the screen.

Have only seen JY in the 2010 film "My Dear Desperado" (aka "My Gangster Like Lover") and JY was simply riveting (her co-star Park Joong-hoon was also great) - able to show so much w/ her eyes or slight changes to her facial expressions (her acting style reminds me of Im Jung-eun in "Joseon X-Files").

This gem of a film has it all, great acting, great scenes and dialogue (not a moment or word wasted).

Btw, there's another young actress w/ the same name (had a supporting role in "Dong Yi") who is also a good actress.

It was for 2 old films : Come, closer and Café noir.

SO beautiful ..

I love her look and her style.. She is unique and not run of the mill kind of beauty. She really is a fantastic actress.

I LOVED que sera sera so much. It's great to see the name ginnie commenting here coz reading the recaps for QSS , I kept seeing the same names commenting. Everyone was so passionate about that drama.

For me, it was like watching some art house movie or a play sometimes. Sad to think it didn't fare well in ratings. I think it was ahead of it's time and I believe it would do much better now. Fashion was atrocious though! Very retro in that sense
