August has been a slow month for drama premieres so far as the new arrivals came earlier in the summer. The month end will see the arrival of two big prime time dramas in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds and the K-drama version of Bu Bu Jing Xin, but on the weekends there’s the stylish and warm like a well-worn suit arrival of Laurel Tree Tailors (The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop) next weekend. I’m a huuuuuge sucker for a well-dressed man, subscribing fully to the visual notion that the suit can make a man and the confidence it bestows never a bad thing for one needing extra doses of self-confidence. This drama isn’t particularly interesting beyond being set in the custom male habadashery world and starring tons of smexy older male leads in Lee Dong Gun, Cha In Pyo, Choi Won Young, and scene-stealing Ji Seung Hyun who played a North Korean commander in Descendants of the Sun. That’s more than enough for me to check into the first episodes.
