Oh what one drama can do to render a change of opinion in either good or bad ways. Yoona of SNSD won be over in Prime Minister and I and that’s that. It’s not clear if my fondness and goodwill for her will remain if she slides backward in future acting projects, but for now it’s without reservation that I just smile when I see her. Since PM ended on such a lackluster note (a handshake? really? seriously? not even a hug?), Yoona has been busy with her SNSD group mates promoting their new album and generally throwing herself into the idol side of her career. She’s also dating my Lee Seung Gi on the side, or maybe he’s now her Lee Seung Gi, but whatever, I adore them both and completely approve of this relationship. May it live long and prosper. The dating bug has been contagious all over SNSD ever since Yoona and Seung Gi went public and now there are other confirmed couples being Sooyoung and Jung Kyung Ho as well as Tiffany and Nichkhun. I guess Yoona won’t need her boyfriend to buy her pretty shiny baubles from Cartier since she’s currently the spokesmodel for the brand’s latest line of jewelry called Amulette de Cartier. The design is gorgeous in that classic Cartier style of dramatic simplicity. I wish Yoona’s modeling photos for this campaign, which is also featured in the May issue of Cosmopolitan Korea, were as up to par in showcasing the jewelry. With the exception of one shot, she favors the right side of her face in every single picture and that’s a no-no for me in modeling where the subject has to be able to do a lot a facial changes in still poses. I think she skates by on her pretty face and lithe figure (which is a tad too thin especially in the back shot pose) but I hope her modeling repertoire also improves going forward.
