It probably sucks being Lee Min Jung right now. I say this with sympathy for her plight despite her life being rich, famous, and beautiful. All the superficial outer accoutrements that signal success in the material world, but really can’t be a stand in for happiness right about now. The whole of K-ent was talking about Lee Min Jung’s husband A-list actor Lee Byung Hun this past week when he reported a pair of young women blackmailers to the police. He was the victim of a crime but ended up looking like a total sleazy douchebag. In life one can be both at the same time. At a time like this, the release of a gorgeous overseas Cosmopolitan Korea pictorial of Lee Min Jung feels like sucking the wind out of her sails. I don’t want that to happen to her, regardless of whether she knew of her husband’s reputation before marriage, no woman deserves to be so publicly humiliated by a spouse.
So let’s enjoy this latest spread from Lee Min Jung’s, easily one of her most beautiful on location pictorials by showcasing the physical beauty of Milan, Italy as well as the coming Fall designer duds from famous Italian designers. Most of her clothes are in shades of creamy winter white which I just love and matches so well with her shades of red hair color. There is a bit of melancholy in these shots which make it moodier then what Lee Min Jung usually does in her pictorials and one does wonder if she’s channeling some real life sadness she can’t hide for the cameras. Regardless of what’s happened in her life and around her, I’ve always enjoyed her in the right role so here’s hoping she weathers this personal storm and continues to improve as an actress and occasional fashion model.
