Runway Cop Holds Hilariously Awkward Movie Press Conference

The level of epic FAIL and sheer absurdity in the press conference by the cast of the upcoming comedy movie Runway Cop (Korean title Detective Cha) almost made me topple off my chair and snort inelegantly. It appears that the production held a mock runway show and had the male leads prance around in character (or pretending to be random male super models), all dressed and made up like they were auditioning for the Korean version of Twilight. Kang Ji Hwan looks dreadful, Sung Yuri needs to cut out the aegyo poses, and the supporting cast collectively needs to be rescued from this crazy joint. I hope the movie is as least entertaining, because even looking at this press conference gave me a headache from laughing too hard at it. Sobs, give me back my normal Ji Hwan now!

Runway Cop Holds Hilariously Awkward Movie Press Conference — 29 Comments

    • When I read you comment I was like omg where??….then I scrolled up and I laughed my head off. It looks terrible, wonder who thought that was a good idea.

    • Re: toeless boots. Oh you’re SO right! *shudders*

      Koala, I think this press conference was soooo bad it went all the way back to awesome. Sort of awesome at least. IDK. It sure is loltastic! *g*

      btw, I do like the guyliner on KJH (yes, I’m still shallow)

  1. OPPA!!?? WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU!? WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU!? If this is their idea of bringing something new to the table, it’s horrible!!!! Hope the show is better…

  2. I like to think that they’re all just really really in character. HAHAHA Regardless, even if the movie isn’t entertaining, there’s still plenty of eye candy to look at. So no complaints from me. Throw in some shower scenes and I’m a happy camper ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hmm…. I hope the movie is good, first time I have had any doubts about it. But… the only Kang Ji Hwan movie I’ve watched was sort of awful (the one about the ugly woman). I love Hong Gil Dong and I crush on many parts of Lie to Me.

    Toeless boots?? For men?? I hate them for women, that is a whole new level of awful.

    And I’ve finally figured out who one of the male models reminds me of/is? The sunbae character in Love Rain, the one who was a chaebol in disguise. Is it him?

    • Yes, that’s Kim Young Gwang from Love Rain.

      KJH looks horrible in manliner, it makes him look gayish. :/ He should have left it for Jang Geun Seuk or Lee Min Ki to rawk that.

      • Yah… I was too distracted by the boots before to pay attention to the pancake makeup on his face.

        He is a more manly type of fellow and this isn’t his best look. Lee Min Ki and Jang Keun Suk, well, I want them to give me eyeliner lessons.

        Hopefully there is some happy medium in the movie (or just him in the sleeveless undershirt like in that last set of spoiler pics).

        I love how risky the men in Korean film are with fashion… lets be honest American suits are sorta boring, but with that comes a lot of crash and burn moments. Like the above ๐Ÿ™

  4. oh, the piccie with KJH in the middle with the three (models? women?) surrounding him… I think everyone involved has been scarred for life… including us who saw it =_=;;

  5. I LOVE IT
    so far the stills have only been interesting or amusing to me….nothing that screamed you just have to check this out…it just felt like gender switched spoof of Ms Congeniality…but this press conference…I am so in no

  6. I would totally pay ten bucks to watch the korean twilight
    Or any other teen supernatural/ hungergames, at least the men are gonna be hotter

  7. LMAO this is beyond awesome, really, more press conferences should go all out and bring on the camp (they are usually so banally NORMAL and cookie-cutter) — I can hear the costume designer now saying, ‘and let’s find “The Crap” straight off the runways and see if you can put it off in real life, Ji-hwan.’

    Total giggle fest, I hope it’s on youtube to watch or somewhere!

  8. Ayoh what happen to KJH’s look kinda of too much make up esp the eye liner….yucks….give me back his boyish looks!

  9. Sung Yuri is wearing the yellow dress with nude shoes in one photo and the yellow dress with black shoes in another. When and why did she change her shoes? Oh well…I love them both.

  10. ahhh! So cute. This cast looks like they must have had a ball while filming and the movie looks hilarious…Those toeless boots have to go though! LOL.

  11. hahaha nice to see my KJH having a ball…. honestly, this guy can do NO wrong in my book!!! and he gets younger looking as time passes…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I don’t know…maybe this is one of those things were the actors/models are “in on the joke”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. He looks so thin for me, and not very like it. The best form of KJH for me was in the 5 last episodes of Lie To Me But still, I hope for the best for the movie ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Kim Young-kwang is just about the only actor I get a literal allergic reaction to. I can’t understand how he’s getting so much work when he yells all of his lines and has empty eyes.

  15. Really hate the boots! btw one of the male models (in the double breast jacket, next to orange shirt guy) seem to be the warrior guy from the Vampire Idols.

  16. I think KJH is the most interesting koreean actor. He has something smart … I don`t now exactly why, but I admire all his caracters.Of course, his smile in a registered trademark. About his boots

  17. Love his boots. So kinky! Rather stylish! Not his usual boyish charming self which I love, but it’s Kang Ji Hwan . He can pull off everything except being garish, he is too manly for that.
