If ever there was a chance for every Korean actor to try out a sageuk, 2013 would be that there. The television schedule is so jam-packed with sageuks there is literally something for everyone. Even if the drama ends up sucking a transformative performance in a sageuk still counts for something, for example Kim Tae Hee had made me a fan for her sincere and hard working performance in Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love. Even Ha Ji Won is coming back to television for a long stay towards the end of the year with Hwatu. I’ve been pushing for Yoon Eun Hye to do a sageuk for the longest time and I think she should strike while the iron is hot and there are bound to be more projects to choose from. I would veer away from the more cutesy elementary fare like Gu Family Book, and maybe choose a grittier melodramatic production akin to the upcoming Sword and Flower. Yoon Eun Hye was in Vietnam last month for work, which included shooting a photo spread for Bazaar Korea magazine. I’m a little underwhelmed by the photographer’s shot selection even as I like these pictures and think Yoon Eun Hye is bringing everything to life. She’s in Vietnam yet I don’t get any sense that the background incorporates the country, which is such a shame since there is so much to use as an evocative back drop. The old apartment building with a colonial aura can harken back to the French influenced on Vietnam but it’s so fleeting that one has to reach in there to make the connection. I like Eun Hye’s outfits, makeup, and hairstyles but she’s such a photogenic and charismatic print model I’m almost wishing these pictures were more than just very good.
