Welcome back to another installment of For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.

The play of shadows and light lends an air of mystery to any pictorial. The haziness of the shadow can be sensuous or sexy, comforting, or jarring. Keeping half the profile shrouded in darkness, Park Bo-gum and Go Kyung Pyo demonstrate a foolproof way of using this technique. It is easy to choose a variety of background shades such as the blood orange for Seulgi‘s full shot or the diffused blue behind Sehun. Shadows can also be effective in highlighting the side of the face in focus. Enjoy the following photographs as they delve into the shadows!
