Kim Yoo-jung (김유정) is gearing up for another hit with her new drama Clean With Passion for Now set to premiere in later November. I expect the couples photo shoot to turn up a bit closer to that date (if they do one) but for now we have this fresh and youthful spread chock full of advertisements.
I’m excited for Clean With Passion For Now because this is Kim Yoo-jung’s spring board into adult roles. Her counterpart Kim So-hyun stepped into an adult role this year with Radio Romance and though I think she did fine, the role was just not for her. Her character and her costar were too old for her (she played a 27 year old) and all the kisses looked like a father kissing his daughter as she headed off to school. But I think she will rebound with her next role Love Alarm that puts her right back in High School.
I am happy that Kim Yoo-jung is signed onto a more youthful show even though her costar is 31 in real life. In an ideal situation, it would be nice if these teenage child stars just signed onto college dramas next. I would have lobbied hard to be in My ID is Gangnam Beauty or the like. But maybe they are so set on being looked at as an adult that they just want to blow that child image out of the water. Whatever the case, I wish her tons of luck!
For the curious, she is advertising Paul Smith glasses, a suit by MagLogan with a purse by Lovcat, a mini dress by Maje & feather jacket by Hume. In another photo she is wearing a purple top Juicy Judy, skirt by Romanchic and bucket bag by Lovcat (who incidentally is sponsoring The Beauty Inside). And lastly, she is wearing a pink jacket by Hume and flowing floral dress by JJ Jigott (though they don’t really let us see that dress now do they).
