Jung Ryeo Won’s Sketchbook
Actress and former pop singer Jung Ryeo Won is publishing a picture-essay collection.
Similar to singer-actress Park Jiyoon’s photoessay compilation “Secret Garden”, Jung Ryeo Won’s Sketchbook contains drawings and writings that the actress herself has drawn/written.
As she’s a devoted Christian, there are messages that accompany the drawings that refer to her faith. She posted the notice on her cyworld page, and explained that her pictures were drawn purely out of enjoyment: “I haven’t received formal instruction, it’s just that I wanted to express myself.”
Jung Ryeo Won’s Sketchbook is planned to be released in bookstores, but no publication date has been given.
SONG OF THE DAY
Park Jiyoon – “겨울봄여름가을 그리고 다시 겨울 (Extended Edit)” (“Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter Again”). This actually comes from a mini-album of instrumental tracks that are meant as a companion piece to Park Jiyoon’s photoessay collection, called simply “Background Music for Secret Garden.” [ zShare download ]
In other news, Han Ye Seul recently gave an interview in which she named Jung Ryeo Won as the star who’s the “best fashionista”:
“She’s also a friend, but Ryeo Won has a certain quality where she can express herself well and find things that suit her. She wears clothes well, in a way that the average person can easily follow.”
I’ve got to agree with the fashion part; Jung Ryeo Won has always struck me with her innate stylishness. She’s not the most traditionally pretty but she always looks great, in a self-assured, individualistic way.
Lots of other stars look good; that’s no big deal since that’s part of their job description. But Jung Ryeo Won always looks really comfortable in her clothing, like it’s an effortless thing for her to throw something on and make it look interesting and fashionable. She’s also the only actor I’ve seen modeling clothing who actually makes me want to wear the clothes.
