Good ole Yoon Eun Hye – even in the dead of Winter she manages to jolt me awake like a splash of refreshing cold water for the visual senses. Fresh off a very disappointing turn (for me) in Missing You, where her performance was solid but the character so superficially written, at least she got to experience the melodrama bug which is always a good thing. An actor can’t coast on laurels and definitely should venture outside the comfort zone. For Yoon Eun Hye, she’s been associated with rom-coms since she started acting that it was high time she did a melo. I just wish it hadn’t been MY, especially since the drama is now sandwiched between the vastly superior Nice Guy and the subsequently looking very promising That Winter, The Wind Blows. Either of those female roles I would have cast her since she’s my bias over Moon Chae Won and Song Hye Kyo, but that’s just me wishing she got a better drama and not a diss on those actresses in the least. For the March issues of High Cut and W Korea, Yoon Eun Hye drops two very different spreads. For High Cut she went back to Hawaii for a very tropical photo shoot, which echoes the Hawaii shoot she did right after wrapping Lie to Me where she modeled a variety of Cartier jewelry. I really love the first picture above, even if the outfit she’s wearing looks an evening gown missing the entire bottom half. My guess is that its some couture swimsuit that costs an arm and a leg and isn’t very comfortable or practical in the least. Her legs are to-die-for. The rest of the Hawaii pics are lovely and typical Yoon Eun Hye, in that she makes me sit up and stare anytime she models. For W Korea, she’s showcasing a line of bags for Rouge & Lounge. I can’t say I am particularly impressed with either the bags (so stiff and ordinary) or the photos (too statics), but I adore her hair and make up in those pictures. Here’s to hoping she picks a sageuk soon and challenges herself even more.
