Lee Yoon Ji Sheds Her Girl-Next-Door Image for Photo Spread
Lee Yoon Ji might be known as the girl next door, but with her spread in men′s fashion mag L′officiel Hommes, we′re pretty sure she′s broken free of that label.
During the accompanying interview, when the actress was asked, “What is the one insult you want to hear the most?” she confessed, “Ever since I thought I wanted to be an actor, I have always been envious of the ‘crazy fool.’ But I was always the well-mannered child.”
The actress, who is known for her girl-next-door image, said, “While I’m grateful for that image, it’s also an obstacle in some ways. But, in the end, it’s of my own making. I may be getting back what I gave.”
When asked, “Don’t you need to dive in head first sometimes?” Lee said, “I don’t want to make a sudden transformation. Like day turns into night, I can thoroughly show different sides of myself.” On her model student image, she said, “I don’t think I need to shake off that image. I hope to continue to be a model student.” Lee apparently went to class with heavy makeup on prior to the shoot.
In response to the question “Who do you consider to be your rival?” Lee chose Han Hyo Joo and praised her saying, “[She is] like canvas that you can draw anything on.”
Readers can see the photo spread and read the full interview in the November issue of the magazine.
Lee also is starring in the film Couples, which will be released on November 2.
