Lee Min Jung shows off her post-pregnancy beauty in a pictorial for the September 2015 issue of Singles magazine. The new mother is poised and exudes a calm spirit, in the upcoming issue, which celebrates the eleventh anniversary of the publication.

A report published by the Korean outlet Newsen titled "Lee Min Jung, The Goddess of Childbirth is Still a Flawless Beauty," highlighted her appearance in the upcoming issue of Singles. According to the article, the photo shoot was taken in Bali and utilized its tropical atmosphere to highlight the jewels she was adorned with. 

The 33-year-old actress is styled in jewelry from the classic French atelier, Van Cleef and Arpels. Founded in 1896, the Van Cleef & Arpels has been worn by prominent Hollywood starlets and royalty like Grace Kelly or Elizabeth Taylor. 

The Singles pictorial delivers the first public photos of the star, following the delivery of her first child, Lee Joon Hoo. Her last acting role was in MBC's 2014 romantic comedy, "Cunning Single Lady."

Her participation in the Singles photo spread could mark the beginning of her return to Korean entertainment, following a hiatus which was punctuated by her pregnancy and a scandal involving her husband, Lee Byung Hun.

In September 2014, Lee Byung Hun was shrouded in controversy, following an alleged blackmail scandal involving Dahee of the former idol group GLAM and model Lee Ji Yeon. The lengthy legal battle subsequently led to the disbandment of GLAM and sentencing for the women involved in the blackmail scandal. 

Her return to Korean entertainment will be heralded by domestic and international fans. Lee Min Jung won the hearts of Hallyu fans through her portrayal of the spunky character Ha Jae Kyung in the 2009 hit, "Boys Over Flowers." The success of her supporting character led to a lead role in "Smile, You," followed by the hit movie, "Cyrano Agency."
