Last week this page and significant other portions of the Interweb crackled with the August covers of Vogue Korea featuring pairings of Soo Joo and Sung Hee with Korean megastar Kwon Ji Yong, better known by his stage name G-Dragon. The 10-page cover story by photographer Hong Jang Hyun titled “Black Twins” twists and turns with bespoke irreverence on a set made to resemble a crumbling interior. At the eye of the storm the twins radiate a singular connection that belies the peeling wallpaper, smashed TV, and bed mattress with one coil in the landfill. Both enchanting and decadent, Soo Joo exudes the requisite star qualities for any pop idol the world over.
