KC Concepcion earns praises for ‘daring’ mag cover

Dressed in white one-piece swimsuit-like attire, KC Concepcion posed with her back to the camera while looking over her shoulder. By her feet were her pet ball python named Coco and a wooden bust of a man.

The “daring” cover photo on Rogue Magazine’s January-February issue created a stir among netizens, including the actress-host’s own mom, Sharon Cuneta.

When asked by one of her Twitter followers, the Megastar said KC is simply beautiful in the cover photo.

In general, reactions from netizens among them director Yam Laranaz and TV personality-model Bianca Gonzales, were on the positive side. Some netizens even attempted to decode symbolisms allegedly found on the photo.

Photographer Mark Nicdao who shot the photo explained that the cover is open for interpretation. He also shared that the work is one of his bravest shoot with the young actress whom he labeled as the new, improved, and stronger KC.

For her part, KC explained that her Rogue issue is about women having the strength they might not always believe they have, and trusting in the truth and finding strength.
