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.
What’s in a power pose? A central focus, an wavering and piercing gaze, a confidence that runs up-and-down and through-and-through the subject. These selected stars have something else to add: J-Hope brings a textured palette of color and unique movement to his editorial with Esquire; the five women of Le Sserafim emphasize their strength in numbers as they strut across their tour poster; and the ladies of NMIXX challenge the masculine connotations in “power pose,” opting to show how power—even that with softer edges—comes first from within.
