It’s been six months since Kim Tae Hee wrapped Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love, and I wish she would have quickly followed that up with another acting project to strike while her acting is hot. I’m still dealing with the mind blowing transformation of one of the most acting limited A-list actresses in Korea for the last decade into someone who moved and wowed me in JOJ. There is no such thing as being unable to improve, as Kim Tae Hee has singlehandedly shown that she can carry an entire drama on her shoulders and even emerge from a narrative collapse with still her efforts intact. For the November issue of Cosmopolitan Korea, Kim Tae Hee went to Berlin for the photoshoot and this one is a winner through and through. I love that the locales showcase the trendy metropolitan aspect of the city, which is paired perfectly with styling Kim Tae Hee with smoky eyes, rocker volume hair, and plenty of cool hip attire. At past thirty she might be a dash too old to sport studs, short pleated skirts, and grungy layered looks, but she manages to pull it off and I’m loving it. She makes so much money on her endless CF endorsement deals that she’s not desperate for acting projects, but I think she showed so much potential in JOJ it would be a shame for that fire and passion to dim because of a prolonged time off. I wonder if she’s enjoying having her boyfriend Rain out of the army, and maybe they are putting effort into the relationship while she’s lighter on her acting load.
