Scans of the day

The premier issue of Ceci China with Song Hye Kyo, and then the second issue with Jung Ryeo Won. What can I say? I really like international magazines. Ceci China turns out to be not so good but they always manage to bag the biggest female Korean actresses for its covers (and they’re recently shifting to photographing Chinese actresses too). And they all do do really great covers.

Scan of the day

I found this picture the other day and looking at the stuff that used to be on my closet wall really makes me miss black and white movies. I went through a black and white movie phase sometime in senior year of high school. I “dropped” the interest as I got into kpop but my Japanese cinema class this semester is on the black and white cinema era of Japanese film, so it got me nostalgic for b&w American films.

It’s a cliche to say that black and white films were “magical,” but when you watch them, it really does make you feel nostalgic, even though you’ve never lived through the period. Somehow, films from the era have a very straight-forward way of telling stories. They feel honest. They make you want to grab on to something, even if you don’t know what that something is. And that’s a good feeling.
