Shin Mina is such an endorsement queen in Korea that it’s not surprising she’s not in more movies or dramas. I don’t have a problem with her trove of endorsement deals since she’s a completely winning model, with legs that seemingly go on forever and dimples that fairly mesmerize the viewer into heeding her siren’s call and go out and buy whatever it is she’s selling. This girl, she’s got the golden touch. I just lament how long the wait is between her projects, the last time a full two years went by between My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and Arang and the Magistrate. She can afford to be picky, but I’m hoping she does a gritty movie next, something along the lines of Gong Yoo doing The Crucible. I think she has it in her to go dark, and one lament I had in Mawang was how pure her character remained throughout, despite understanding she was written with that purpose in mind. I’m having a hard time deciding who I liked her better with between her last two co-stars – puppy Lee Seung Gi or smoldering Lee Jun Ki? She had good chemistry with both, so I guess the choice comes down to which drama one liked better, and it’s kinda a toss up for me. I was relatively unimpressed with both, but neither are terrible and remains solid entertainment at the end of the day. Shin Mina was in Star1 magazine recently and looking absolutely enchanting, playful yet sexy with a twist of cute. She also seems like a super cool girl to hang out with, as apparently all her male co-stars have attested to. It’s nice to be well-liked in the industry and a total bombshell talent to boot.
