Jeon Ji Hyun is back -- in more ways than one! Not only has the beautiful actress announced her return to the big screen with the upcoming caper film "Thieves", she is also promoting the new GUESS Jeans campaign, titled "GUESS is Back!" Personally, we weren't aware that GUESS ever went away. But in any case, apparently the clothing company is back, this time with a whole new line of denim shorts, jeans, and even... overalls! The actress, known throughout Korea for her leggy, shapely physique, shot the pictorial on Shineville Luxury Resort on Jeju Island. And in case you were wondering about the overalls -- they are also so back! GUESS has reported that inquiries about her overalls have gone through the roof, making them the company's latest hot item! Who would have thought? Then again, if anyone can sell a pair of jeans, it's got to be Jeon Ji Hyun!
