Allure Korea Features Beautifully Androgynous Singer Jo Kwon in Beauty Pictorial

It’s not often that I’m taken aback by entertainment offerings but color me happily surprised by the latest Allure Korea beauty pictorial featuring not an actress or idol starlet but instead male idol-singer Jo Kwon. He’s someone who has never shied away from his androgynous beauty and performs with confidence on stage even when doing musicals like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. That a mainstream publication like Allure would present such a cross-gender and visually arresting pictorial makes me so happy that boundaries continue to be pushed in positive ways. His makeup is really lovely in all the shots, echoing some new trends in the always trend setting K-makeup scene. This week he also performed Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” on variety show Golden Tambourine, showcasing his singing and performing chops to an enthused audience.
