Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby present you with the worst haircut in 2013. Yes, I can already award the prize because ain’t nothing going to top this sucker next year (by the way, Noh Min Woo won this award in 2012 for his style or lack thereof in Full House 2). The upcoming big-budget thriller K-drama IRIS 2 quietly commenced filming last week with a roster of overseas shooting locales that are comparable to any whiz bang Western show. Apparently Eastern Europe will be featured heavily in the drama so I’m hoping there is actually a good narrative reason for the story to take the characters there. The main four cast members Jang Hyuk, Lee Da Hae, Lee Bum Soo, and Im Soo Hyang attended a media showcase for the drama this week where they unveiled their looks for the drama. This is where Hyukie wins the award for having one of the worst crew cuts known to mankind. This is like what a six-year old kid in the 1960s would have when he trudged through the rice fields with no shoes to walk 3 miles to school in the snow while piggybacking his baby brother on his back. Heh, you get my drift. It’s the buzz cut of no choice for poor boys in developing countries everywhere. Lee Da Hae, on the other hand, looks drop dead smashingly gorgeous. Her hair, figure, and complexion remain the envy of women everywhere. And its wonderful to see her and Hyukie so comfortable with each other as they embark on their third drama together playing the OTP. I’m so super excited to see Lee Bum Soo tackle the action genre, and Im Soo Hyang is not bad either. I do love this cast but cannot summon any hope for the drama to actually be any good. At best it’ll be an inoffensive giant product placement for glitzy new devices and lots of explosions. At worst it’ll be the second coming of Athena: Goddess of War. Please let it be the former so that I can actually watch it without wanting to throw things at the screen.
