How has Fashion King been for you? After a very bright, enjoyable episode 1, I am disappointed with the illogical makjang elements of episode 2. Crossing the Mexico border on a van, and then hitch-hiking from Mexico all the way to New York??? You like to kid me right, show? At least, the main actors are doing an almighty job at keeping the story going. Sik came back in full force. He’s too cute I can’t take his crying scenes seriously lol.
Here’s an eye-candy for the soul:
Fashion King premieres today! Are you ready??????????????
Because this year is an important transitional year for my career, I cannot commit as much time to blogging and the fandom as I used to. I really appreciate it if you all can help Haven remain the number one source of news for Ah In and FK. Also, I really hope to post weekly recaps of Fashion King to help publicize Ah In’s drama and also Haven itself. If anyone wants to help me with recapping, please leave a message in the comment 🙂
Here are some juicy news:
1. Fashion King held its press conference on March 14th. Yoo Ah In wore Prada, Shin Se Kyung donned Carven, and Yuri picked Roland Mauret for the event. I think the blue dress makes Yuri look rather old, but the cast all look lovely I kinda have a crush on Lee Je Hoon here 🙂 (sorry oppa!).
More trailers and related videos can be found at Haven’s YOUTUBE CHANNEL. Make sure to check out the first OST, 너를 꿈꾸다 by Lee Jin Sung of Monday Kiz

History of a Salaryman hit a ratings high so it’s now extended for two more episodes. It’s the drama before Fashion King so naturally, this extension moves Fashion King’s premiere date. Just informing you guys because I told you time and again to mark March 12 in your calendars. You need not erase that mark since it means there’s only one week till we see our beloved Yoo Ah In on our screens (be it a TV or a computer heehee) and we can start a week-long anticipation party. Oh yeah!
Anyway, mark March 19 as the day Fashion King premieres! See ya all when it premieres! 😀
We finally get a peek of our second leads and of course, more Yoo Ah In! Enjoy more photos under the cut!
Yoo Ah In and Shin Se Kyung just finished filming for Fashion King in New York so I bet they’re heading up to Las Vegas soon. Anyway, here are three stills of their New York filming and three more stills of Yuri during Valentine’s Day. Find them all under the cut. Enjoy!
Yey! SBS has released the character photos of our four leads and corresponding character profiles. Can you feel it? March 12 is so near!
Yoo Ah In plays Kang Yeong Geol (which I think will get romanized to Kang Young Gul), a happy-go-lucky twenty-something without a dream or goal. He is described as naughty and cool. But behind the tough exterior, he is actually a man who lets other people trample on his dream. He’s the kind of guy who doesn’t want to cause any trouble by blocking anyone’s path. So I guess he’s sort of a martyr? In this world where he was always told that pursuing your dreams is foolish, he meets Lee Ga Yeong who inspires him to pursue his dreams and reach his goals.
More under the cut for the other character! Btw, thanks to SBS for the photos and for Purple Lee for the translation of the character profiles.
Here are more stills from Fashion King, featuring both Yoo Ah In and Shin Se Kyung. The cast and crew of Fashion King will be heading to New York to film and it’s also said that they will also film at Vegas. Big budget, huh? Anyway, enjoy more stills under the cut!
P.S. I can’t think of a title so there goes point 4. Here are the first set of stills I posted, the second set and the third set. Enjoy!
I know it’s not Yoo Ah In but I figured I’ll just post anything about Fashion King. So here are some stills of Shin Se Kyung, Fashion King’s female lead and probably Ah In’s love interest. Five more photos under the cut. Enjoy!
…wherein he does what he does best (among all other things), looking studly and angsty and rebel-y. Is this really a drama about fashion designers? I am so excited, I can’t contain it. I’ll probably post even if just a picture surfaces. Heehee. Anyway, enjoy!
