The styling for the leads in the upcoming K-drama adaptation of time-traveling Chinese romance novel Bu Bu Jing Xin (Bobogyungsim: Ryeo) is certainly going for visual oomph. At least for male lead Lee Jun Ki, what with the bangs taking front and center in all the stills I’ve seen of him as 4th Prince. He looks fantastic in this brooding Goryeo dark knight get up, though it’s not really the 4th Prince of the novel who is much more low key.
The drama is playing up IU‘s fresh-faced appeal which aligns with her novel female lead who is just a teenager when the story first starts in the historical era. After seeing Lee Jun Ki with Lee Yoo Bi in The Scholar Who Walks the Night, it won’t be a stretch with the age gap I just hope he has better chemistry with IU. That, and don’t turn the female lead into a mentally challenged hot mess, I like my female leads with smarts and savvy.
