Director Yoo Ah In is Back For Tom Paper 2nd Issue With Jung Yumi
Though we had a slightest hope that he will make a comeback before heading to military service, it’s pretty clear that Yoo Ah In won’t be walking around the dramaland anytime soon. Despite taking one of the roles from piles of the script offers, Yoo Ah In has been keeping himself busy as the creative director for his own company STUDIO CONCRETE.
Besides building a new office for the company (and grooming Studio Concrete’s new shiba inu breed named Takku~^^), Yoo Ah In also took part again in the launching of Tom Greyhound’s global concept store magazine “Tom Paper” second issue (2015 Spring/Summer). In case you missed it, click here for Yoo Ah In’s works on Tom Paper’s 1st issue November last year.
In Tom Paper 2015 S/S second issue, Yoo Ah In reunites with actress Jung Yumi (Discovery of Love, Tough As Iron), this time they work as a creative director and model.
Yoo Ah In took charge in directing the photoshoot of Jung Yumi with unconventional and shocking hairstyles, makeup and poses, and transformed her into the Tom Paper’s protagonist. In particular, Yoo Ah In and his team worked on the photography and graphic design elements for the magazine, showing off their rich artistic sense.
In the Tom Paper 2014 F/W first issue, the magazine took it’s first arc theme “WHERE TOM LIVES”. In this 2nd issue, it brought up ‘TOM LOVES ME’ as its second arc theme, and the subject of this theme is Jung Yumi with some additional models.
The theme tells a story of Jung Yumi receiving a lot of love from ‘TOM’, and a number of attractive models as the ‘LOVERS’. The concept is presented in an art book format, which is inspired by Jack Pierson’s ‘Tomorrow’s Man’ photo book.
Jack Pierson is a curator and an artist. When he was offered to publish a monograph on his work, he considered a new form of publication. He imagined a book that brings together his own works associated with images of different origins, prints and drawings that he collects and that inspire him. He also invited young artists to contribute their work, just like Studio Concrete does. The result is an unconnected compilation of themes and styles forming the miniature encyclopaedia Tomorrow’s Man, whose title comes from a bodybuilding magazine popular in the 1950s and ’60s.
This sounds very interesting 😀 I’m so looking forward to seeing Tom Paper 2nd issue this spring!
Now let’s check out some photos from Studio Concrete’s new building which they built and designed from the scratch~
