20130908_seoulbeats_park_joo_mi_3Welcome back to For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take the time out of the week to share with our readers some of the most recent fashion-forward photos tied to the K-pop landscape.

It’s the beginning of September, but before we fully switch gear into autumn photoshoots, it’s worth it to take a moment to highlight Allure Korea‘s recent 10th anniversary (August 2013) issue, which featured an amazing series of photoshoots with ten of Korea’s most well-known actresses.

Below is a selection of some of my favorite photos from this particular issue, alongside the films/dramas/television series that have in part helped define the careers of each respective actress. Of course, it goes without saying that for most of these actresses, these listings are only but a fraction of their extensive filmography.
