Yoon So Yi Transforms Into "Portrait of a Beauty"


Yoon So Yi, who currently stars in the SBS drama “Warrior Baek Dong Soo,” will appear in the September issue of W magazine with a reinterpretation of the 2008 historical movie, “Mi In Do” (“Portrait of a Beauty”). The movie is about a talented Joseon-era woman who must take over her brother’s identity as a painter after he commits suicide. This liberal twist on an old story suited the concept of the pictorial, which was meant to be a modern take on old-style beauty. To achieve this amalgamation, the stylists mixed modern and traditional hanbok and makeup.  The result was a gorgeous fusion of modern and traditional beauty.

The actress proved that she took the photoshoot seriously and had no problem trying many different poses. It’s reported that everyone present at the shoot loved her.

“Yoon So Yi perfectly understood the concept of the photoshoot. She was a model who upgraded the overall quality of the spread. We were impressed by her commitment and concentration for every shot,” a staff member said.
