I’ll assume that KBS is trying to out-flower boy SBS with its sageuk Hwarang: The Beginning versus the K-version of Bu Bu Jing Xin that is Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. Moon Lovers will be all done airing by the time Hwarang arrives at the end of December, so for audiences there is simply more pretty to be had, and good lordy are Hwarang leads Go Ara and Park Seo Joon incredibly pretty in costume as Shilla era nobles. KBS released a promo video featuring leads of it’s buzziest dramas and included are Park Seo Joon and Go Ara in costume for the first time, smiling and dazzling with their combined cheekbones and beaming visuals. Park Seo Joon looks believable as the pretty boy Hwarang scholar warrior and Go Ara rocks the simple effortless lady styling. The entire cast script reading stills below also promise to exponentially add to the looks department, nicely done KBS.
