Lee Dong Wook and Shin Dong Yup are Slighty Naughty for Vogue Korea

Mamma mia, Vogue Korea does it again with a truly fascinating photo spread that not only catches my eyes but is sure to set tongues wagging. I don’t think it’s anywhere genuinely provocative, but it definitely isn’t your plain vanilla “post prettily” type of photos. It’s been three months since Lee Dong Wook tried his hand a MC-ing talk show Strong Heart with veteran MC Shin Dong Yup. I’m not sure he’s helped the ratings after taking over for Lee Seung Gi and I don’t watch the show so can’t say whether Lee Dong Wook has a knack for leading discussions.

For the September issue of Vogue Korea, the magazine paired up the Strong Heart Duo in a series of photos that I would call Lars and the Real Girl crossed with Moulin Rouge. Take it for what it’s worth – I find the photos amusing and tongue-in-cheek. Lee Dong Wook appears to purposely amp up the smolder while Shin Dong Yup is like a coy circus barker. I love the saturated reds, blacks, and whites in the pictures, and I love how the life-sized doll is used in animated ways in certain pictures so that she doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb but appears to be integrated into their odd little baroque world that the two men inhabit. I appreciate it when I see something that tickles my creative bones rather than just looking pretty.

  1. I LOVE this duo. Bring their own flair and flavor (not gonna compare them to LSG-KHD) I think he’s holding his own as an MC Koala :D albeit being very green and obviously new to the whole thing. Love the shoot overall though yes it being a lil different. Thanks for the news! :)

  2. Ha! The looks on their faces tell stories – do we really want to know what goes on behind those curtains? I also love the rich colors.

  3. Now THAT was unexpected. Pic #4 is the prettiest imo but srsly pic #3 is OTT with LDW holding that doll with his hand under her skirt and on her leg.
