Shin Se Kyung Featured in Awesome Throwback Inspired Album Cover for Seo Taiji

Oh man, this is such a great connective moment in Korean pop culture, and also an undeniable visual confirmation on how looks change growing up. Korean actress Shin Se Kyung, currently all over the news promoting her upcoming K-drama Bride of the Water God, is also making waves in the music industry after music veteran Seo Taiji revealed the album cover for his latest work. The Taiji 170902 album drops on September 2nd, of course, featuring Shin Se Kyung in the exact same expression and pose as when she was the album cover girl as a child for his album back in 1998 (the Taiji 980707).

Many don’t remember that Shin Se Kyung was a child actress and has been in the industry for nearly two decades and it’s startling to see how she went from an adorable child to a beautiful woman and all her features still look exactly the same except just matured. Totally strikes a dagger into all those actresses who claim growing up or losing weight caused their eyes/nose/jaws/forehead to completely morph into a different shape, lol. Congrats to Shin Se Kyung for being a natural beauty and for this fantastic throwback tribute. Continue reading
