It’s a bit of an unfortunate coincidence to have three instances of fashion heresy on the same week, and in this case one offender did it twice with two different fugly outfits. Lots of premieres are coming in dramas and movies which affords fans the opportunity to see oppa and unni doing press conferences, and also the opportunity to see them commit fashion terrorism. First up is Hyun Bin, out promoting K-movie Cooperation, and finding himself enamored of jeans and coat combo.
Except in this case he donned unnecessarily decked out coats with embroidery and design, and dad jeans judging from the fit and length. Second up is Nam Sang Mi, making a drama comeback with Chief Kim after two years since Joseon Gunman, wearing what amount to be a hastily sewn together plaid with lace and asymmetry tied together in a big belt. Last but not least if dimpled cutie Shin Mina promoting tvN drama Tomorrow With You looking like a throwback to the big dress big shoulder pad days of the 80’s which still looks abysmally awful thirty years later.
Of the upcoming Wed-Thurs K-dramas, I’m most keen to check out Chief Kim on KBS, taking over on January 25th after Oh My Geum Bi ends this week followed by a short drama Naked Fireman. Missing 9 will depend on … Continue reading
Despite being the perennial prime time ratings loser in 2014, the KBS Drama Awards was heads and tails better than what MBC put on the night before in both fashion, star power, and actually awarding quality acting. Of course not every … Continue reading
There’s a storm brewing in the KBS Wed-Thurs time slot and hopefully this week will iron (har har) things out fully. Joseon Gunman has been leading the ratings but it’s a nominal victory since all three dramas including It’s Okay, … Continue reading
This post has been long overdue since the gorgeous pictures here were released last month in June prior to the premiere of the currently airing KBS sageuk Joseon Gunman. Leads Lee Jun Ki and Nam Sang Mi shot a moody … Continue reading
The Wed-Thurs time slot has been devoid of a K-drama that really connects with me ever since Miss Korea wrapped up. Many were watchable like A New Leaf or Sly and Single Again, and others totally a pass such as Golden … Continue reading
The two cuties of Joseon Gunman have unleashed their adorableness on the drama world and seriously brightened up what was an otherwise crazy start to the drama week. Lee Jun Ki and Nam Sang Mi are seen together in the … Continue reading
If something quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, walks like a duck, then it is most definitely a duck. Same does not go for dramas as plenty of dramas have looked good and sounded good only to end … Continue reading
It will be a travesty of everything good in drama land if Joseon Gunman turns out to be a dud after dropping the most ridiculously gorgeous and eye-catching promotional materials in all of K-drama fare this year. I suppose the … Continue reading
Last week was fantastic for a K-drama fan, so many new dramas premiering with many quite watchable. I remember dry spells when nothing beckoned other than lackluster dramas one would watch because nothing else was on. Even if the Spring … Continue reading
I feel like my itty bitty casting concerned heart has been settled down with the hot off the press confirmation by Nam Sang Mi‘s agency that she has officially accepted the leading lady role in Joseon Gunman. Whew, now I … Continue reading
Drama casting is never over until the proverbial fat lady sings and confirmations ring out, so the rumored casting of Park Shin Hye in the Lee Jun Ki upcoming period drama Joseon Gunman is no more. I adore her but … Continue reading
It’s an understatement to describe watching Goddess of Marriage as a chore. With Goddess of Fire as least the snark bubbles up to counter the idiocy onscreen, but GoM isn’t that and falls into the category of drama watching I … Continue reading
