Oh Snap! Kang So-ra wins at photoshoots
by | November 1, 2016 | 48 Comments

I couldn’t love this shoot any more than I already do. I really like the recent trend that Kang So-ra seems to be taking with her photoshoots, since they all have such an elegance about them. This one especially—the flower accessories are works of art in and of themselves, and having the contrast of her snow white skin against a dark background gives this Allure shoot an almost eerie flair.

Keep keepin’ it classy, Kang So-ra. Keep keepin’ it classy.

    Love these! She looks so different here. I almost had to look at her face twice or thrice to confirm that it really was her.

  4. fangirl98

    I love how artistic these are. Each photo is a work of art! Absolutely beautiful.

  5. Van

    Oh, these are very pretty, indeed. My favs are the last two!

    What I love so much about Kang So-ra’s photographs is her effortless beauty. She manages to to look both stunning and approachable in a way I don’t see in other K-actresses. It’s sort of the same thing Jennifer Lawrence has going on.

      It’s funny you compare the two here.

      Because both are two actresses who are extremely popular and recognized generally for being very attractive within their respective markets.

      Both are also examples of actresses who I’ve never really understood what all the fuss was about.

      Whatever it is that others (almost everyone but me I think lol) see in them, and are taken by, I don’t personally see it for whatever reason.

      Go figure.

      To each his (or her) own!

      Nice photo shoot nonetheless! 🙂

        I’ve never gotten anything from JLaw but I do love Kang Sora.

        Every now and then a comment pops up comparing two people and it’ll be one person I do like a lot and another I really don’t care for, lol. Kang Sora just has this natural coolness that I don’t see a lot in actresses from any country. JLaw has always come off as a sort of fraud to me, though.

        It is a little weird how things work.

        I guess with our three comments, we’ve covered all the sides to this comparison!

          We need one more to cover all bases!

          Someone who loves Jennifer Lawrence but hates Kang So Ra.

          Then our square will be complete.

          Any takers? 😉

            I love Jennifer Lawrence’s look more than Kang So Ra, but it does not mean I hate her though lol. 😛

            Both are stunning, but honestly I don’t really get the fuss about KSR. She is pretty talented, but I don’t think she has amazed me with her acting yet.

          • fab

            Maybe not.

  7. Adal

    She looks so gorgeous. Absolutely stunning!

  8. Kay

    She really reminds me of a younger version of Park Ji Young (Queen Yoo in Moon Lovers and Bang Ja Young in Jealousy Incarnate)…they need to have a mother daughter role in the future!

    • 8.1 ilikehim

      I’ve been thinking the same thing!!!!!
      They do look eerily similar.

    • 8.2 pogo

      whoa I see it, if she was 20 years older she would totally make a convincing Queen Worst Mom Ever.

      Though pic #4 reminds me of Song Hye-kyo, more than anyone else.

  9. Lisa_wackycashew

    Love the artistry and KSR looks stunning!!

  10. 10 wapz

    Woah such an amazing concept. And KSR looks great too. But that 3rd photo, it would’ve been tough to wear all that on her neck.

  11. 11 Cool Girl

    Such an artful photoshoot! Her looks are all very poetic and beautifully melancholic.

    I love her role in Misaeng (which i’m currently watching), and feel sad that she hasn’t seem to have make it bigger after the drama.

    I don’t get why: she’s really a solid actress, with excellent chemistry with her co-stars and she seems to be very much liked and often praised for her personality too.

    • 11.1 Sera The Ms Temper

      Kang So Ra is not the only facing this, we have many pther actresses who have complete package but yet did not manage to shine after one successful project. This is sad, though.

  12. 12 pogo

    I really hope she finds that next big hit after Misaeng soon. Of course, quality-wise that drama can’t be topped, but I’d love it if she was more popular.

  13. 13 jt

    she is like a vase for the flower displays. lovely.

  14. 14 Kaybee

    I used to sometimes by fashion magazines just to look at the pictures. This is the reason why. Sometimes these odd, artful, interesting and gorgeous shoots pop up. Kang Sora looks so beautiful and the pictures are so artistic that I actually saved to use as desktop image. THIS is how you take pictures *secretly dreams of Kdrama stills/teasers evolving to something like this*

  15. 15 Gidget

    Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  16. 16 canxi

    These are really great, aren’t they?

    I was gushing about them earlier as well. She uses her body so well that even though her face may not change much; it’s still very interesting. She seems to be one of those people who is just a natural at a lot of things.

  17. 17 rentenmann

    I’m left wondering how they manage to show a color palette that is both rich and understated at once. Consider me stunned by the beauty.

  18. 18 Lena

    These are lovely – awesome styling work!

  19. 19 Mmie

    She is gorgeous! I love her!

  20. 20 Nessie

    Yes I saw this on her instagram and instantly liked them all. Her pictorials are usually very mature and elegant, or she does the healthy fitness sport ones. S

  21. 21 risa

    She’s a goddess… as is uri Heads.

  22. 22 WM

    Nature is just not fair. *sigh* She’s so gorgeous, and you know it has nothing to do with the make-up and clothes. She’s just naturally stunning. Beautiful photos.

  23. 23 Ari

    I follow her on Instagram so i was one of the first that saw some of the pics she posted herself and i thought W.O.W!! Seeing the rest of the shoot, it’s even more beautiful.

    I’m a sucker for fashion photoshoots or portraits in magazines, I could watch them forever, so this shoot is an excelent adition to my collection 😀

    I’m missing her a lot, like someone above said, I wish she could star in a hit drama already, after Misaeng she deserves to be even more popular.

  24. 24 kimster

    Wow gorgeous Kang Sora! Nice photoshoot!

    Now what we need is to see her back in dramaland.

  25. 25 Yoyo

    Oh Kang Sora when will I ever see you in a drama opposite Lee Jun Gi?? When!!??

    • 25.1 efef1989

      praying the same thing XD

  26. 26 Pam

    She is the one of few K actresses looking natural and able to act

    • 26.1 bd5

      C’mon – there’s more than a few.

  27. 27 salt n' pepper

    Lovely photoshoot! Very artsy and classy.

  28. 28 transient

    I don’t know who she is, but those photos are gorgeous

  29. 29 korfan

    This is the first time ever that I’ve commented on someone’s lipstick but I can’t think of anyone else who could pull off that lipstick color shown in the first photo.

    All gorgeous photos.

    • 29.1 rentenmann

      Yes! I love that lip color in the first pic. *Grabby hands*

  31. 31 mehungie

    Am I the only one who got a Bellatrix Lestrange Azkaban mugshot vibe from the first picture? The rest are stunning!

  32. 32 Jillia

    I mean these pictures are GORGEOUS but the whole time I kept thinking “Aren’t those flowers and greens and stuff not uncomfortable to wear?”. xD I know some people have to suffer for beautiful photoshoots but please this is too much.

  33. 33 Trackspy007

    Wow great photoset! Love kang sora. So classy and such beautiful artwork. Props to the photographer also! 😍

  34. 34 Beez

    This gives me a good chance to ask – in K drama, I always hear “If you’re going to act that crazy, you may as well run around with flowers in your hair!”

    Can someone tell me why culturally flowers in the hair represents crazy instead of just pretty ornamentation? And do Korean women who opt for western style weddings never wear flowers in their hair for the ceremony?

  35. 35 fab

    Stunning! So-ra is gorgeous and always a pleasure in her dramas.

  36. 36 erika

    kang sora is stunning…

    i miss lee teuk…aigoooo
