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!).
We finally get a peek of our second leads and of course, more Yoo Ah In! Enjoy more photos under the cut!
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.
