Barbie Hsu and DJ Koo Share Their Second Chance Romance with the World in the Cover and Pages of Vogue Taiwan October 2022 Edition

With fashion pictorials I normally just enjoy the pictures as the “interviews” always feel so scripted and sanitized. Vogue Taiwan just dropped a massive pictorial and cover spread with TW-actress Barbie Hsu and her new Korean musician husband DJ Koo (Koo Jun Yup) that is way better if you look at the pictures and read the entire interview because together it’s telling such an incredible story that is better than a drama script. This couple’s story is already incredible (dating 20 years ago when young and red hot careers which led to a split that devastated both, reunited 20 years later after she got divorced and he called her on the off chance) but hearing it from the two of them really touched my heart. They both sound so sincere, honest, and raw, and have complementary personalities of “daring to love” rather than being overly cautious. The interviewer’s asides that the two looked so at ease and happy during the shoot and answered all the questions so effortlessly made it clear they were the real deal and wanting to not let this second chance go. Their reconnection was explained as like no time had passed and the marriage after months of just talking on the phone did not give either any hesitation, he remained single and often talked about her as the one who got away and she tried to move on but he was always the one she loved the most. Netizens are also super supportive and complimentary of this spread, saying they look soooooo cool together and especially how Barbie seems to be back to her old self rather than looking so wan and dimmed the way she did in the later years of her past marriage.

  1. These two are cuteeeee together. Who knows what the future holds… but they are glowing and happy now. As a 40 year old myself, I love that they didn’t hesitate to grab happiness with both hands.

  2. You nailed it, Koala! It’s weird to say this, but it’s great to see Barbie looking like herself again! After her first marriage she didn’t really looked like the Barbie I got to know and love.

  3. Another pair will make an announcement soon. The same pair who wore the exact same Prada turtlenecks as Barbie and DJ Koo. The Mattise painting Face Of a Woman was displayed in the background of her latest agency video is also the same exact painting hanging on the wall of his family cafe in Ulsan. Her aunt also has the same Mattise painting in her apartment.

  4. I love, love, love the pictures. They are so cool and happy. I wish them all the best.

    What a joyous reunion. It gives one hope that even years later things can fall into place.
