Actress Lee Young-ae seems to defy her age in newly released magazine photos.


The hallyu star, 45, most known in Asia for the popular Korean drama "Jewel in the Palace" (2003) posed for monthly lifestyle magazine JLOOK's February edition.

Three photos, taken at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seoul, show the mother of two looking young and beautiful in elegant dresses.

Korean herbal cosmetics brand The History of Whoo, for which Lee is a model, took care of the make-up.

In the magazine, she talks about her upcoming TV drama "Saimdang, the Herstory," in which she plays Shin Saimdang (1504-1551), a noted artist, poet and the mother of Confucian scholar Yi Yulgok.

"I wanted to look appropriate in the magazine to go along with my role in the drama, whose character is modern and active yet conservative," online daily TV Daily quotes Lee as saying.

The drama is due to screen this year.

어깨선 드러낸 '신사임당' 이영애 뷰티화보

라이프스타일 매거진 “제이룩”은 배우 이영애와 진행한 2월호 화보를 1일 공개했다. 

사진 속 이영애는 어깨를 드러낸 의상과 업스타일 헤어스타일로 단아하면서도 세련된 미모를 자랑했다.

티브이데일리에 따르면 이영애는 복귀작 “사임당, the Herstory”에 대해 “지금 드라마에서 맡고 있는 역할이 모던하면서도 여성성을 잃지 않은 활동적인 이미지의 현대 여성이라 그런 이미지를 보이고 싶었다”고 전했다.  

이영애는 이어 “피부가 예민한 편이라 드라마나 영화 촬영을 하며 더 건조하고 예민해졌는데, 그래서 더 신경을 많이 쓴다. 물도 자주 마시고 수분 크림은 수시로 바른다”고 피부관리 팁을 전하기도 했다.
