Yong Mei by Alexvi

Silver Bear winner Yong Mei, whose name means a poem for the winter flower – the plum blossom, is captured with equally timeless architecture in this photoshoot by Alexvi. She recently starred in So Long, My Son, for which she won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, and drama A Little Reunion.

As idol dramas and pop idols came to popularity, many in their early 20’s or even teens began to appear on top fashion magazines.
