I’ve seen my share of odd photo shoot concepts, but for the most part its from the edgier magazines such as Vogue for the ladies, GQ or Details for the men, or perhaps an indie rag or two. InStyle Magazine is probably as straitlaced as they come, like the Toyota Camry of the publishing world when it comes to mixing celebrity and fashion together. So I wonder with genuine puzzlement the concept the magazine came up with last month to showcase the lead couple of Cruel City (Heartless City). This photo spread featuring Jung Kyung Ho and Nam Gyu Ri was published last month before the drama premiered and I was waiting to get a grasp of their relationship in that drama before writing about it. Perhaps they are so close as to share the same chapeau style? Or perhaps the magazine wanted to head in the opposite direction from the dark edgy vibe of their drama and plop them into a hippie-esque sunny dappled field to frolic merrily? But then why is Jung Kyung Ho wearing a floppy sun hat in every single picture? Why? WHYYYYY? I. Do. Not. Get. Yes, the clothes the magazine stuck them in are across-the-board hokey, like they just walked off the set of a 70’s movie. I must say they both look lovely despite their threads, and its evident in the pictures that they have tons of chemistry. Those of you watching CC know that the OTP has had two very fleeting and brief encounters through the first six episodes, but because we know what’s to come, the building anticipation is absolutely intoxicating. It’s not necessarily their love story, but how their lives will get even more complex and complicated once Soo Min starts orbiting Shi Hyun’s world that makes me giddy for the possibilities to come.
