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.

As the final month of 2022 approaches, looking back on the past year and some self-reflection is in order, something that also appears in the recent photoshoots rolling out of Korea. RM of BTS is the latest member to add more music to his personal discography. Accompanying the upcoming Indigo, the photo concepts have the leader of BTS casually leans against a pillar. Clad in all-white, the golden hour light glows even brighter with the simplicity and honesty of the photograph. Kim So-yeon opts for dramatic contrast in her Arena shoot, and she also highlights all-white attire in the form of a striking jumpsuit. She stares the camera down and shifts her body into an open stance, which, when coupled with the pitch-black background, creates a powerful message of confidence.
