Sisters Jessica and Krystal posed for the November issue of 'Cosmopolitan.'  

Because of their busy schedules, they arrived in New York for the shoot on different days, but when they finally met up, they hugged and looked happy to see each other, once again showing how close they are.  

They were super charismatic and chic during the shoot.  Jessica spoke in fluent English, asking the photographer if she should try switching poses with Krystal or try the shoot from different angles.

Former Dal Shabet member discusses her erotic movies and legal battle

Actress Baek Da Eun (formerly known as Viki from Dal Shabet) sat down for an interview during a photo shoot with 'International bnt.'  Baek Da Eun showed off her toned body and perfect poses in the pictorial, playing several different looks with ease and professional elegance. 

In the first concept, she wore a beige top and stripe skirt, which created an alluring mood, and in the second concept, she donned a casual outfit for a free and upbeat atmosphere. The last concept displayed feminine beauty with a black-and-white dress. 

During the interivew, Baek Da Eun discussed her controversial role in an erotic film, 'A Pharisee.' She stated, "When I first got the script, I thought it was a philosophical and artistic film. It was a bit shocking, but because of that film, I received a new actor's award, so I feel grateful." 

She also explained other erotic films that she made since 'A Pharisee' by saying, "The places I signed with turned out to be non-registered production companies, and things I did not want happened there. Criminal cases are being argued in courts right now, and from now on, I will never sign without accurate paperwork."  

Good luck with the lawsuits!

What did Youngji do when she read kind comments about her acting?

KARA's Youngji took part in an 'International bnt' photo shoot for which she discussed in great detail the recently ended 'Oh Hae Young Again.' 

The idol-turned-actress said, "Now that the drama is over, I'm doing auditions. It was my first project and it was so meaningful that I feel very bittersweet. I held a fan meeting not too long ago, too." 

Though 'Oh Hae Young Again' was Youngji's first drama project, she said she didn't think the drama wouldn't do well, reasoning, "Because I was among so many talented people, I felt great and confident [that the drama would do well]." 

Youngji also broached the topic of criticisms that people tend to direct toward idol-turned-actresses. She said, "After I saw the first episode and saw comments that complimented my acting, I cried. Before I started the drama, I was very worried and had lots of thoughts. I thought that since there will be people [judging my acting], I'd rather be insulted for doing well. So I determined to do my very best."

Regarding his drama 'Vampire Detective,' he said, "I learned a lot in various ways, although my body had a hard time because I stayed faithful to the [action] genre.  When the camera comes close to me, I tend to become awkward and to stiffen my body, but in this drama, there are a lot of only closeups, so it became a time for me to train myself."

G-Dragon crosses gender boundaries on the cover of 'Vogue China'

G-Dragon pushed the boundaries of fashion--and gender--as the cover star of 'Vogue China's August issue.

Wearing charcoal black thick eyeliner and a purplish plum matte lip color, the Big Bang leader embraces his more androgynous side. G-Dragon has never been afraid to push the boundaries where fashion is concerned, and it seems he took it a step further in this pictorial. The theme seems to be a slightly gothic, decorated with dark hues, chains, and damask patterns.

The photos were taken by world renowned photographer Mario Testino and the outfits were hand selected by Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia. The second cover photo features IMG model Bella Hadid.
