TVXQ 'Grazia' Shoot Vs. JYJ's Magazine Covers:Who Looks Hotter?

By Adrienne Stanley | February 05, 2014 02:57 AM EST


On January 4th, the cover of the February 2014 issue Grazia featuring TVXQ's Yunho and Changmin was released. The cover and two photos from the full pictorial were released for a special men's feature in Grazia.

In the feature, Yunho and Changmin describe various aspects of their lives as idols including the loneliness that one often feels by being the center of public attention. The desire to engage in ordinary tasks like shopping and what it is like to do their laundry are also touched upon.

TVXQ recently celebrated ten years within K-Pop with the release of their album Tense. The February 2014 issue of Grazia containing the full interview of TVXQ was released on February 5th. Both Yunho and Changmin display their fashion-forward image with visually arresting expressions.

JYJ also released photos of their upcoming issue of The JYJ magazine. Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu all display their own masculine appeal on the covers. The third edition of the magazine will be available in both Korea and Japan, with the first round of pre-order sales concluded. Each issue has one hundred and thirty pages dedicated to the members of JYJ, along with exclusive content. The JYJ can be purchased through C-Jes.

As news feeds for Cassiopeia became inundated with photos from regarding both TVXQ and JYJ's magazine appearances, the debate over whose cover was most attractive began. From a photographic perspective, the photos taken for TVXQ's Grazia shoot tilt towards high fashion, which creates more impersonal yet seductive images.  However, Cassiopeia have definitely given Changmin credit for creating the sexiest image in the pictorial. By contrast, the photos for The JYJ were composed to create an effect that allows for more connection from readers. Personally, it is wonderful to see all of the members of TVXQ and JYJ in upcoming interviews and pictorials. Which cover do you think is best and why?
