Take a look at the two celebrities that will be receiving the first ‘Rising Star Asia Award‘ at the upcoming ‘New York Asian Film Festival’s ‘Korean Film Night’ on June 24th.
Kong Hyojin was plucked as the Korean representative to sit in front row at Lacoste fashion show in New York for their Spring/Summer 2009 Collection on September 6th. While in the Big Apple, the fashion plate/actress will do a photo shoot for the upcoming issue of W Magazine (Korea).
Kong Hyojin will be back in Seoul after a week to start promoting her new film, “Miss Carrot.”
What a transformation! Kong Hyo Jin bravely sheds her quirky-cute image for a frizzy haired & ruddy-faced country bumkin. In the new movie, “Miss Carrot” (미쓰 홍당무), Miss Kong takes on the role of a Russian language high-school teacher, Yang Mi-sook, with an unrequited love for the handsome Mr. Suh, played by Lee Jong-hyuk. Sounds like another 200lb Beauty, but without the extra weight.
The romantic comedy, “Miss Carrot,” directed by Lee Kyong-mi will hit the theaters on October 16th, 2008.
Check out the short video clip of the photoshoot for the movie poster at Maxmovie here. It’s obvious that the ruddy skin was photoshopped in but the frizzy hair is her own.
Ha SangBeg + Roy’s Spring/Summer 08 Collection based on the concept, “Dynamite” was shown at The Answer Club in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul on January 23rd, 2008.
Bada, Choi Yeojin, Ha Jiwon Kong Hyojin, Choi Kanghee and party planner, Ji Miggy attended the show but all should have taken a cue from the runway for some fashion inspiration.
