One of these things is not like the others is my first reaction upon seeing the just released official character posters for the Korean drama version of Bu Bu Jing Xin. The concerted effort to distinguish male lead Lee Jun Ki‘s 4th Prince, from the C-drama version’s understated steely scholar and also from the other princes in the K-version called Bobogyunsim: Ryeo (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo), is going overboard in the character poster that has him covered in blood like he’s in a sageuk version of a slasher movie. Whereas his costars IU, Kang Ha Neul, Ji Soo, Nam Joo Hyuk. Hong Jong Hyun, and Baekhyun are all looking tidy and quietly regal. I don’t have a problem with intense guyliner Jun Ki slashing and stabbing his way to the throne except that wasn’t 4th Prince in the original novel so I’m starting to be angsty for what the K-version has in store. Other than the wholesale visual differentiation of 4th Prince, everyone is looking softly pretty.
