17 May SANDRA OH
Hanbok is a type of traditional Korean clothing worn on formal occasions. Typically crafted in silk with vibrant colours and seamless lines, the garments are spectacularly beautiful and luxurious—and thus are a remarkable contrast to the immediate setting: an old abandoned warehouse on the east side of Los Angeles.

Sandra Oh is the Cover Story for NUVO’s Spring 2008 Issue Grey’s Anatomy star featured wearing traditional Korean dresses. The issue, on newsstands February 25, features an exclusive photo shoot with Oh wearing Hanbok dress.
Oh was photographed by Sheryl Nields at an abandoned Los Angeles warehouse. The location was chosen to create a dynamic contrast with the colourful Hanbok pieces designed by dressmaker Kim MeHee. The combination of the modest setting and the intricately designed dresses created a series of stunning photos.

“Only someone with a strong personality and individuality could pull this off–someone like Sandra Oh,” says NUVO Art Director Sandra Zarkovic. “Her free-spirited demeanour was apparent in the photos throughout.”
NUVO will publish two covers for the upcoming Spring issue.
Along with her role as Dr. Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy (for which she has won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actor’s Guild Award), Oh is recognized for her roles in the hit HBO series Arli$$ and the critically acclaimed film Sideways. Her resumé boasts dozens of television, film and stage appearances.
