Mamma mia, Vogue Korea does it again with a truly fascinating photo spread that not only catches my eyes but is sure to set tongues wagging. I don’t think it’s anywhere genuinely provocative, but it definitely isn’t your plain vanilla “post prettily” type of photos. It’s been three months since Lee Dong Wook tried his hand a MC-ing talk show Strong Heart with veteran MC Shin Dong Yup. I’m not sure he’s helped the ratings after taking over for Lee Seung Gi and I don’t watch the show so can’t say whether Lee Dong Wook has a knack for leading discussions.
For the September issue of Vogue Korea, the magazine paired up the Strong Heart Duo in a series of photos that I would call Lars and the Real Girl crossed with Moulin Rouge. Take it for what it’s worth – I find the photos amusing and tongue-in-cheek. Lee Dong Wook appears to purposely amp up the smolder while Shin Dong Yup is like a coy circus barker. I love the saturated reds, blacks, and whites in the pictures, and I love how the life-sized doll is used in animated ways in certain pictures so that she doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb but appears to be integrated into their odd little baroque world that the two men inhabit. I appreciate it when I see something that tickles my creative bones rather than just looking pretty.

I LOVE this duo. Bring their own flair and flavor (not gonna compare them to LSG-KHD) I think he’s holding his own as an MC Koala 😀 albeit being very green and obviously new to the whole thing. Love the shoot overall though yes it being a lil different. Thanks for the news! 🙂
Ha! The looks on their faces tell stories – do we really want to know what goes on behind those curtains? I also love the rich colors.
Now THAT was unexpected. Pic #4 is the prettiest imo but srsly pic #3 is OTT with LDW holding that doll with his hand under her skirt and on her leg.
Great photo shoot, if odd. Put Wookie in anything, and I’m game. And his smolder definitely isn’t broken. 🙂
Remind me of Kim Sun Ah and LDW’s tango scene in scent of a woman. hehhehe!
I love Lee Dong Wook’s eyes!! He kills me!!*Drooling*
I love u “Lee Dong Wook” !!!!! But I was not feeling the photo 🙁
