Shin Mina is a Beautiful Bare-faced Bride for High Cut Magazine

Shin Mina is really effortlessly gorgeous whether she’s goofy or a goddess. She’s been exclusively in movie land for the last two years since Arang and the Magistrate in the Summer of ’12 so I haven’t really see her around much. Sure she’s in tons of CFs and can probably rest her laurels on that alone, but in terms of cinematic output her body of work is on the slimmer side. She’s got two movies out in 2014, the first is the recently released Gyeongju with Park Hae Il and the second is My Love, My Bride costarring Jo Jung Seok that is slated to come out later this year. Last year she did a short film called The X with Kang Dong Won. I remain ambivalent about her last drama Arang and the Magistrate with Lee Jun Ki, their chemistry was excellent but the story really stagnated in the never-ending investigation during the middle parts and a romance that was never really shown as a development progress and rather just happened. I think she’s got the charisma and looks to really excel on television and it’s really more finding the right script and character for her deliver a truly unforgettable performance for me. Shin Mina is in the cover and pages of the June edition of High Cut magazine and I always love her print work. She’s an exceptional still model with her too defined and unique features really popping on the page. She’s going for the bare-faced bride look and the camera absolutely loves her. I’m still waiting for her and So Ji Sub to act together whether in a movie or drama, their Girodano CFs totally whet my appetite like a delicious appetizer. Continue reading
