Oh Snap! Seo Kang-joon takes perfectly nice photos
by | April 5, 2016 | 63 Comments
Pictured here for W Korea, rising (and somewhat contested as of late) star Seo Kang-joon proves that he can take perfectly acceptable, easy-to-look-at photographs. If nothing else, they’re a nice break for the optic stems, which is all some shoots can ask for. Still, I’m kind of ready for the spring trend of eggshell colors... More »

In the accompanying article, each actor talks about the contributions they... More »

Oh Snap! Taecyeon has great eyebrows
by | March 28, 2016 | 34 Comments
Was I supposed to get something more academically meaningful from this photo shoot? It’s just Taecyeon looking as though relaxing comes both easy and weirdly difficult to him, and in the midst of it all are his eyebrows. Enough said. Or almost enough said, because while we’re here, it’s worth mentioning that while the singer/actor/variety... More »

Oh Snap! Hwang Jung-eum is a bride again
by | March 22, 2016 | 34 Comments
It’s not new news by now that actress Hwang Jung-eum was recently married, and while she describes her wedded bliss as being ordained by destiny, she also described herself as “itching” to get back into the acting game, and has already chosen her next project, MBC’s new rom-com Lucky Romance. Pictured here for Elle Korea,... More »

Oh Snap! Lee Byung-heon likes the little things
by | March 19, 2016 | 87 Comments
Taking his debonair persona for a spin, Lee Byung-heon seems a bit more at ease in this month’s colorful spread for High Cut, donning some interesting duds in the process. For once, I think the garish prints are a character choice—or maybe when you get to a certain star level, you can pretty much pull... More »

Oh Snap! Yeo Jin-gu goes full lounge lizard
by | March 18, 2016 | 47 Comments
Look, it’s not like we’re the ones who mussed up his hair, put a drink in his hand, a cigarette in his mouth, and proceeded to snap photos of him in a nightclub. W Korea can take all the credit for that. We just get to look. Rising star (and firm ’97-er) Yeo Jin-gu is... More »

Oh Snap! We’ll look past this one, Jo Jung-seok
by | March 11, 2016 | 34 Comments
This would’ve totally be one of those shoots that we could have just enjoyed before moving right along, if not for that one shot. There’s just so much happening that I’m not sure how to process it—is he trying to give us a “Come hither” look, or was he just caught before a sneeze? Who... More »

Oh Snap! Lee Hyun-woo sulks in expensive suits
by | March 8, 2016 | 82 Comments
To be fair, I’d be sulking too if I were a talented actor stuck in a show hardly anyone is watching. Lee Hyun-woo has had a bad run of it lately when it comes to dramas, especially youth dramas in particular, with Moorim School continuing an unfortunate trend started by the much beleaguered To The...

Oh Snap! Song Jae-rim is so over plants
by | March 4, 2016 | 50 Comments
If that’s not the concept here, then what is, Marie Claire? I get that it’s difficult to think straight when you have a blindingly charismatic living god in front of your lens, but that’s no excuse to go willy-nilly on props that add no visual appeal. He is the visual appeal. If I seem a... More »

Oh Snap! Kang So-ra keeps it classy
by | March 1, 2016 | 26 Comments
Pictured here in a spread for Marie Claire magazine, actress Kang So-ra channels her dark and mysterious side with some old-fashioned gothic flair. I love the overall look and feel of these photos, but love most of all that they went for something different and succeeded. (Take heed, High Cut!) For more Kang So-ra, tune... More »
