The first two thoughts to pop into my head when I saw the press conference for the upcoming K-melodrama That Winter, The Wind Blows is this: (1) Damn is Kim Bum FINE!, and (2) Good lord what the what is Jo In Sung wearing?! This press conference was a mixed bag but overall not bad. Song Hye Kyo and Jung Eun Ji both coordinated and went with lovely winter white, but my nod goes to Eun Ji for the lovely A-line dress while Song Hye Kyo’s outfit was just alright with the sequined sweater and skort. I am totally in love with her earrings though, fantastic touch to complete the outfit. The boys were at opposite ends of the spectrum – Bummie pulled off a well-tailored suit with a hint of playfulness in his black-and-white leopard print shirt, but Jo In Sung with his I-see-spots fuddy duddy double breasted atrocity paired with orange socks and brown loafers made me wince. At least his socks matched his suit buttons? Thank god there wasn’t a single bad hairstyle in sight and I actually think everyone looks stunningly gorgeous in the teasers and stills released for this drama. It’s still a visual oddity to see bean pole Jo In Sung next to teeny tiny Song Hye Kyo, who despite wearing what appears to be 5 inch heels still looks teeny tiny next to him. My heart is already won over by Kim Bum and Eun Ji’s cuteness galore at the press con, what with the heart poses and sweet smiles all around. They have their own love line in the drama and it may just overshadow all the angst of the two leads she’s-blind-he’s-a-conman love story. This drama doesn’t premiere until February 13th so its super early to hold the press conference but Lunar New Year is coming up so best get it out of the way. It sure have been a wild week of press conferences galore in K-drama land.
