Shin Min Ah may portray a downtrodden lawyer in "Oh My Venus," but she is resplendent in her pictorial for the December 2015 issue of ELLE Korea.
On November 23, the fashion publication released the first photos from the upcoming feature, which depict the 31-year-old star, in alluring poses.
In the photo shoot, the actress showcases the latest pieces from the Love & Animal collection of the Korean jeweler, Stonehenge.
She captivates viewers as she peers over her shoulder while her sweater appears to be on the precipice of falling. In other shots, she appears to be contemplative while delivering her piercing gaze.
Her elegant presence in the pictorial serves as a stark contrast to her unkempt appearance in "Oh My Venus," where she portrays a woman who effortlessly downs chicken wings and black bean noodles.
In "Oh My Venus," Shin portrays Kang Joo Eun, a 33-year-old attorney, who gained a significant amount of weight, as she pursued her law degree.
When Joo Eun discovers that her boyfriend of 15 years is cheating on her with another college classmate, she begins to doggedly pursue Kim Young Ho, a Hollywood personal trainer. Young Ho is portrayed by So Ji Sub, who previously appeared with Shin in endorsements for the clothier, Giordano.
"Oh My Venus" marks her K-Drama return following the 2012 MBC period horror-romance, "Arirang and the Magistrate."
Shin began her modeling career in 1998, before appearing in music videos for the legendary Korean pop group, g.o.d. While she is previously known for her girl-next-door appeal with roles like Yoo Chae Yi in the martial arts film, "Volcano High," Shin continues to adopt a more mature image.
The complete pictorial will be available in the December 2015 issue of ELLE Korea. Meanwhile, "Oh My Venus" airs on KBS on Mondays and Tuesdays in the 9:55 KST time slot.
