Not a Single Picture Wasted for Suzy, Park Bo-gum, So Ji-sub and etc.


They are what we call the photoshoot geniuses. Natural born models! When it comes to the professional photoshoots, there's such thing as A-cuts and B-cuts. A-cuts are the photos that will be used officially and B-cuts are normally released beforehand or even afterward, as the "behind" photos. They are normally the unedited versions and few candid pictures too.

Now, some of the top celebrities are the VIP of these photoshoots because of how they make even the B-cuts flawless and high quality! It maybe from the years of experiences but I do think that their natural charismatic instinct and beauty helps them out in front of the cameras.

While choosing A-cuts among all the photos, the staffs and photographers will often be speechless, thinking all of the photos could be used for A-cuts.



Her agency, JYP Entertainment released a huge amount of B-cuts of Suzy's photoshoots on SNS. They thought it would be such a waste to delete the B-cuts, and henceforth, now we get to be amazed at Suzy's beauty shots. One of her greatest strength is her flawless porcelain skin, even in the close up.

Above pictures of the both shoots are the A-cuts and below pictures are the B-cuts.


Park Bo-gum

While modeling for a fashion brand, it is told that the photographer did not want to put any of the pictures into B-cuts. I mean, look at his B-cuts. Even without being edited, his presence shines through.

Though, for the purpose of the brand image, A-cuts were selected with more of a serious expression and the natural, smiley ones were put as B-cuts. (Personally, I want to get his B-cuts more than the A-cuts!)



Seolhyun's back photo have hit South Korea so big, that everyone either fell in love with her or got jealous of her perfectly proportioned body. With the ones that got jealous, many people argued that she used a substitute for her body and the photo was edited. For those people, the staffs released her B-cuts, proving that it was all her!

Even in the B-cuts, it's hard to find flaws. If anything, maybe her tiny little hair strands being out of the way? But even then, it adds a natural look to her beauty.

If B-cuts were already near perfection, how about her A-cuts?


Son Ga-in

One of South Korea's biggest sexy icon, Son Ga-in surprised the fans with a stylish, risqué photoshoots. Her A-cuts were a big hit, seducing both men and women.

Her B-cuts were released on her Instagram recently and even without editing, her proportions and fit body is on point! This picture became so many people's motivation for the summer body diet.


So Ji-sub

Actor So Ji-sub is popular among many photographers because of his classy atmosphere that shines especially great in suits.

Honestly can't tell which ones are A-cuts and which ones are B-cuts on this one! They all look like a movie poster to me. Haha
