‘Elle Girl’ magazine reveals unreleased spreads + interviews with B2ST, B.A.P, INFINITE’s L, ZE:A’s Siwan, TEEN TOP’s Niel, and more

Elle Girl‘ magazine recently revealed several unreleased “B-version” spreads featuring B2STZE:A‘s SiwanINFINITE‘s L, Seo In GukYeo Jin GooB.A.P, and TEEN TOP‘s Niel, explaining that there were too many hidden charms in the unreleased spreads for them to keep to themselves! Below are the comments from ‘Elle Girl’ and the interviews with the stars.


In the August 2012 edition, B2ST became the first boy group to grace the cover of ‘Elle Girl’ magazine. Throughout the interview, they reminded readers constantly of their new single, released over the summer. Their music reached a new level, especially by leaving the ‘heartbreak-boy’ image (in Yoseob‘s words) and opting for a brighter charm with “Beautiful Night“. Regardless of the sweltering hot weather, the boys didn’t lose focus and ended their photo shoot well.

B2ST stated, “While promoting in Korea again after so long was fun, the most memorable event was our 14-country world tour. We were so worried about being able to pull it off, but as we went through more and more performances, we got more confident and completed the tour safely. Being able to meet the fans and feel the love and support from so many countries was a big help to us.


Siwan transformed into a rookie actor this year, showcasing a new side to his many charms. Despite his busy schedule during the shooting of KBS drama ’The Moon That Embraces The Sun‘ in May, he took the time to sit down with ‘Elle Girl’ and complete a photo shoot and interview. He impressed with his sculpted features and ability to photograph well, and his concise way of speaking kept him from using any unnecessary words. His intelligence, talent, and good looks are bound to bring in success as an actor in 2013.

He stated, “I started the challenge of acting with ‘The Moon That Embraces the Sun’ and received so much more love than I expected, relative to my acting abilities. I’m thankful to the year 2012 for the unexpectedly huge opportunity. The past year has felt like one huge gift to me, and I wonder if I’ll ever receive a gift like this one again.”


After INFINITE’s September edition photo spread was released, readers and fans both on and offline showed quite a reaction, surprising the editors at ‘Elle Girl’. Known as ‘Trend-Dols’ for their sudden, hot rise in popularity during this relatively calm year for idols, INFINITE has enjoyed quite a rise in fame over the past year. The unreleased photos from ‘Elle Girl’ contain images of the members looking healthy and happy. The editors selected L’s B-version cuts at the end of his sitcom, ‘What Is Mom‘. As INFINITE’s visual and the epitome of good looks and mysterious quiet, he steals the hearts of fans with his steady gaze in the cut.

Seo In Guk

Although he immediately became a superstar after his win on the first season of ‘Super Star K‘, he experienced a fall in popularity, until he brought it all back with his excellent acting in ‘Reply 1997‘. His eyes, expressions, and way of speaking made viewers reminiscent of 1997 in Korea and gave him an opportunity to flaunt a completely different charm through his acting. He worked with ‘Elle Girl’ for the October edition. The editors were curious, but he was already a professional. He already knew how to turn his face and his gaze; he was also a complete gentleman during his interview, speaking politely and well.

He stated, “It’s been a year during which I’ve received the gift of becoming an actor. I started with ‘Love Rain‘ and then became Yoon Jae for ‘Reply 1997′. During a fan meeting, I sang ‘All For You‘ with two special fans, and I’m thankful for their courageousness. It’s been a year that I want to put in a time capsule and look back upon when times are hard.”

Yeo Jin Goo

He made a mark in history through one of the most successful dramas of the year, ‘The Moon That Embraces The Sun’, and still has a long way to go. Born in 1997, Yeo Jin Goo has yet to start high school, but despite his young age, his haunting calls to his first love in the drama as the grieving young prince has received much applause. Even with his ability to act with a serious stare, he has a lovely, boyish charm to him, which has attracted many “noona fans”. With his dark-tone skin, charming eyes, and mature deep voice, Yeo Jin Goo still has infinite possibilities as an actor.

He stated, “I remember the first time I spent my birthday with my fans. It was fun, but I also felt the responsibility that comes with it. I was able to make a name for myself with ‘The Moon That Embraces The Sun’ and it was one happy year. Rather than feeling sad about sending 2012 off, I’m feeling ambitious and excited about 2013. I’ll show you a more developed side to me!


These 6 young men have the performance abilities and energy that are unlike many rookies. Fans were impressed with their great live vocal skills and the amount B.A.P has matured within a year of their debut. They worked with ‘Elle Girl’ for the first time in the April edition. There was no place for criticism with the 6 blond boys. With their poses and expressions that were unlike those of most rookie artists, their attitude was also a pure 100 percent. After the interview, they even shyly asked, “Let’s take a photo together” and smiled brightly, something ‘Elle Girl’ will remember.

B.A.P stated, “On the day of our fan club inauguration, we performed for 4,000 fans, which was the biggest performance we had since our debut showcase. It was so exciting. This year, we released 5 albums and worked non-stop. We’ll show you a more mature B.A.P in 2013, please watch after us with warm hearts!


TEEN TOP made many teenagers and noona fans swoon all throughout 2012. With “To You” in the first half of the year and “Be Ma Girl” in the second half, the 6 members showed off their charms as a group. In the September edition of ‘Elle Girl’, they displayed their unique characters and passion in each of their photo shoots. Niel, who went first, especially wowed ‘Elle Girl’ with the cuts of his uniquely beautiful face. In front of the camera, he had a bright, strong energy, but during the interview, he folded his hands together politely and smiled shyly, showing his many charms.

Niel stated, “This year, I learned and gained many things and was able to grow a lot. Personally, it was the end of my school career, and I worked hard with TEEN TOP for our overseas promotions, all of which are great memories. I’m sad to let go of 2012 because many great things happened, but I’ll send it off gracefully!
