Minx Does Korean Boy Band – Big Bang
We can always count on Minx to go extreme when it comes to fashion and they haven’t let us down. This time they were featured in the July 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused Korea with Big Bang, one of Asia’s hottest boy bands.
Extreme Boy Style
The 5 members of Big Bang demonstrated their extreme make-over style with matching Silver Lightning Minx manicures applied by top Minx nail stylist in Korea, Jinny Kim, of the Nail-Ae Salon in Seoul, Korea.
When Jinny first heard she would be providing nail fashion for the band, she was so excited. “I couldn’t believe I would be meeting the most beloved boy band in Asia,” Jinny confided. “I wanted to be prepared, so I selected the most stylish nail fashion that would match their Chrome Hearts jewelry.”
About the Shoot
The shoot took place in an old warehouse in Seoul and Jinny quickly got to work with the stylists and decided to apply Silver Lightning Minx to the band members. “It was the first time they had worn Minx, and as soon as it was applied, they loved it and commented on how great it looked with their jewelry,” enthused Jinny.
This special edition (with 5 different covers) was sold out in only four hours in Japan, and in Korea fans were standing in line around the country to get a copy the morning the July issue became available. Jinny admits that she has copies of all five issues.
“I love every photo. There were so many great photos including the photo of T.O.P showing Minx reflected against the floor, and the photo of G-Dragon showing the great match between Minx and his Chrome Heart jewelry,” said Jinny.
World Class Talent
The photo shoot was conducted by Kim Jung Man, Korea’s top celebrity photographer who is respected worldwide for his artistry and integrity. For more behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot, visit Minx Nails Korea Facebook.
