It’s interesting to see actresses grace men’s magazines because oftentimes the male gaze is so obvious it’s hard to miss. Son Ye Jin gets the cover of Esquire Korea February edition dedicated to women, a nice gesture and a great selection of cover model a top actress wtih versatility and countless acting accolades under her belt. What makes this pictorial interesting is all the visual flourishes that feels so in line with a male photographer behind the lens, the subtle skin reveals of the leg and shoulders coupled with a concerted effort to make it all sultry. Women’s magazines tend to do pictorials with more context and less body part focus. With that said, Son Ye Jin looks fantastic in this pictorial and I’m so excited to see her drama comeback this year with Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food opposite rising young actor Jung Hae In. In this interview she specifically stated that she picked that drama because she wanted to do a slice-of-life romance that captures the everyday feel.
