Welcome back to another instalment of For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take time out of the week to curate a set of photos from the K-pop landscape.
Though it is hard to remember sometimes, photos capture a story. Image teasers for K-pop comebacks usually remind us of this fact, as they lend a poignant hand to their concepts. Joy is frozen in time as a ballerina music box for the stunningly creative Red Velvet comeback, while Moonbin‘s photo plays with light and texture to express a mysterious and maybe foreboding feeling ahead of the Astro unit Moonbin & Sanha‘s Refuge album. Costumes—simple and elaborate—makeup, lighting, framing, and expression all contribute to the unique story told through the image.
