A set of pictures of Lee Hyo-ri by photographer Park Ji-hyuk in the March edition of the fashion magazine W-Korea has set tongues a-wagging in cyberspace.
Under the theme that "Love is endless repetition of sweet and cruel moments," it shows the K-pop superstar in a variety of world-weary poses in what appears to be an illicit encounter with a man in a hotel room.
The pictures were taken at the Hotel Shilla in Seoul and reportedly include some daring bed shots with the male model Bae Jung-nam.
Netizens are all aflutter, with some speculating that Lee, who fell out of favor with the press when she turned up late for a press conference, is hoping to attract publicity to follow up on her comeback with her first song in eight months, "Toc Toc Toc." Here, Chosun.com shows three of the pictures with kind permission from W-Korea.
