Cool as a cucumber

Yunjin Kim in Vogue November 12, 2007

Yunjin Kim is featured in Vogue Korea this month, wearing a funky bad perm and super matte makeup. In the blurb following the bit about the houses she keeps in many locations, they say she epitomizes the American Dream. I guess that’s one way to interpret the dream. The article is in Korean, but there’s some video on the story page if you’re interested.

Side note: Has anyone any knowledge of someone H&N being on the cover of American Vogue? Or any other fashion mag besides that one issue of Marie Claire that had Sandra Oh on the cover?

Yunjin Kim is currently in Korea promoting her new movie, Seven Days. Two things — what is she wearing, and why does she look so old in these pictures? Anyway, according to a brief item in Variety, Seven Days is a crime thriller in which Kim plays a ruthless lawyer. Her daughter gets kidnapped and she has to represent a prisoner on death row. This is Kim’s first Korean movie in two years, which is a big deal, since she was a huge star in Korea before crossing over to do Lost. Read more about the movie here.
