[Spoiler] "The King"s Face" Tragic ending for Jo Yoon-hee and Lee Seong-jae

On the last episode of KBS 2TV drama, "The King"s Face", Kim Ga-hee (Jo Yoon-hee) committed suicide after killing Seonjo (Lee Seong-jae).

As Kim Ga-hee realized Seonjo had noticed she was in love with Gwang Hae (Seo In-guk), she put poison in Seonjo"s tea. She also put poison in her tea as well and drank the tea. She made the decision as Seonjo was going to accuse Gwang Hae for treason falsely and expel Gwang Hae from palace.

Kim Ga-hee said, "I kept my promise I"d help you sit on the throne. I"m following king Seonjo. I know I cannot pay for what I have done just by killing myself. Now please forget everything about me and open up a new world for the people".

"The King"s Face" is a fictional period drama that depicts the life of Gwang Hae, a crowned prince born to a concubine, who struggled through dethronement and death threats for 16 years and finally became a king, taking advantage of face reading as own weapon.

Episode 12 dropped 0.4% to 9.4%.

It's the same stuff over and over. It's saving grace is some mystical power that catches the attention and the heart and invests you. Perhaps it's the hot men. Perhaps it's the need to figure this hot mess of a drama out. I'm not sure.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Episode 13 recap[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

Young-gul is agonizing in bed over Ga-young's departure and then rises to check Ga-young's sleeping area, but she isn't there.

Why? Because she's asking Bong Sook for a place to stay. Bong Sook is more than happy to have her and get rid of the good-for-nothing roommate. But she also wants to know the gossip? She she leave for Jae-hyuk's company because she and Young-gul fought or because of Jae-hyuk?

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

Over lunch, Jae-hyuk and father discuss a commercial when Assistant Kim interrupts them with the news that Ga-young decided to work for them. Jae-hyuk smiles adorably at this, happier than a bully stealing lunch money

Director Kim, with some freshly touched up roots, is supervising the work room when Jae-hyuk saunters in to see Ga-young. He masks his true intentions and his exuberant mood with a quick perusal of the other designers' work. He quickly meets Ga-young's gaze before leaving. Kim stares after him with an understandable look of surprise.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

In his office, Jae-hyuk receives research on Il-gook from Assistant Kim. Then he threatens the poor assistant to keep silent and not tell Mama Jae-hyuk anything or he'll lose his job.

So this is a "grown-up" way of going behind your mother's back? Oi.

Then in a very satisfying scene, Assistant Kim hands Madam Dragon her ass on a plate. How? Jae-hyuk wants to buy out the Dragon's share, but only for a million, what she put into the company. When she declines because she has a new investor, Kim pulls out pictures of Il-gook and says, "We warned you Young-gul couldn't be trusted".

He tells her that it's in her best interest to sell; J Fashion has YGM's top designer. But the Dragon won't go uncompensated - her line will be featured by J Fashion.

Needless-to-say, the Dragon is FURIOUS, blowing smoke from her nostrils and ready to crispy fry Kim. Instead, she calls Miss Go for some water and agrees on the condition that Jae-hyuk hire Jung-ah.

Yay, more unreasonable conflict to come...whoopee.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

(Check those hideous things out.)

Just by the way, the Dragon's platforms are disgusting. They're not even shoes. Cinder blocks with lanyard laces would look better than that offensive pair of footwear. Can you imagine her walking around on cinder blocks? Heehee.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

So there's a public signing between Jae-hyuk and Dragon. Jae-hyuk is all smirks. I think that the Dragon is a contract slut - she signs willy nilly with any hot man who will make her money.

Jae-hyuk calls Young-gul to his office. Young-gul has already read the news. The chaebol wants Young-gul to come to J Fashion for efficiency. Ga-young is already here. If Young-gul doesn't want to join J Fashion's YGM, then Jae-hyuk will give him $5 million for Ga-young.

Young-gul signs angrily and on his way out, Jae-hyuk asks what YGM stands for: Yellow Great Mountain.

Nope, the "Y" and "G" do not stand for Young-gul and Ga-young. Idiot.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

As Young-gul leaves, he runs into Ga-young who calls him "President". He says he's no longer her president and breezes by. She looks heartbroken.

Why do I pity them? WHY? They totally brought this on themselves. Changing sides, not talking, letting their pride and jealousy guide their actions. They do this every single flippin' episode. How is this going to work out?

WAIT! I figured out why I pity them! There is a wicked sad clarinet solo wailing in the OST. Clarinet always gets me RIGHT. THERE. *brushes tear away*

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

J Fashion's people are all over Young-gul's factory questioning Young-gul's staff about YGM. In the office, Young-gul listens to the head seamstress answer questions. She says that Young-gul took care of everything.

At Bong-sook's place, Bong Sook tells Ga-young about what happened. She pities Young-gul because he tried everything, even cooperated with the Dragon, but was screwed over in the end by J Fashion. His employee and his contract with America were stolen. But Young-gul is Dongdaemoon's roly poly: he can survive anything.

Gross nickname. Gross.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 13 Recap

That night, Ga-young can't sleep and she heads towards Young Young Apparel. Turns out Young-gul can't sleep either and he keeps seeing Ga-young all over the place.

Hallucinations are side-effects of signing too many contracts in a short period of time. They're also side effects of betrayal, being an asshole and miscommunication.

Finally, Young-gul leaves to go find some mental help - no, he doesn't, I just wish he did. But I really pity him and my heart ached for him. Yoo Ah-in, you are a master. I pity a loathsome character.

So Young-gul is gone when Ga-young shows up.

RAWR! Stop being such a wishy washy little...GRR. Tell him exactly why you left and how you feel. Oh, and don't go work for the other guy. Go find another job if you're so ridiculously gifted at stealing Michael Jackson jacket designs.

Episode 11 eeked up a tad to 9.8%. It's negligable. As is my love for this show at the moment.

This recap was really hard to start. I just didn't want to do it. The show is so confusing. But then it sucks me in. Then I get annoyed. Then I squee. Help. I need therapy to watch it.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Episode 12 recap[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Ga-young comes back from work at J Fashion to discover that Young-gul has been sued, the inventory is missing, the ahjummas flipping out and Young-guls office trashed.

At the police station, Young-gul explains all the things he has going on in his business to a very apathetic cop. Turns out Jae-hyuk spun the elevator tape as Young-gul threatening An-na so he could steal her design. If Young-gul wants to go to America, he needs to clear this mess up first.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Jae-hyuk is a mess as he's driven home and looks ready to drop when Ga-young calls. He ignores her calls, but gets accosted by her in the lobby of his building. Turns out Young-gul is there too and watches her follow him to the elevators.

I see signs for "Misunderstanding Land" and Young-gul has just taken the exit.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Ga-young follows Jae-hyuk all the way to his front door, demanding to know why he went back on his promise. He tries to shut her out, but she follows him around and even blocks the t.v. when he tries to watch it. Hehehehe.

She came to work to protect Young Young Apparel and demands to know if he's playing with her. He says he never played with her and tries to watch t.v. She snatches the remote and turns it off. Young Young Apparel is a mess; the factory has completely stopped work. She should've been there and she is really frustrated about it. After going to work to be by Jae-hyuk's side, she thought he'd keep his promise. This is the best acting Shin Se-kyung as done thus far.

Why is he tormenting her president? But then Jae-hyuk turns it around. Why is she tormenting him? Don't get in the middle of a man's problem.

Um, what about the lives you're affecting. It's not just between men, dude.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

He tries to kick her out, but she parks her bum on the sofa, determined not to leave until he cancels the suit. When Jae-hyuk tries to drag her off, she holds on to the arm for dear life. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Finally, he gives up and undresses in his bedroom. HOO-FRICKIN'-RAY! She gets all embarrassed but continues to stand firm, even curling up on the sofa with a pillow. He watches her, I bet he's impressed by her gumption (part of why he likes her) and incredulous and a bit unnerved and unsure of what to do.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Young-gul is waiting downstairs and finally leaves, imagining the worst and remembering all the times he saw them together. At the factory he hopefully checks her bed and then starts to clean up. But his angst overwhelms him and he knocks some desk supplies to the ground.

We've hit the angst, people. The REAL angst. Expect itfor a long, long, long time. It's episode 12, the time when it normally comes in all K-drama. So join me as I attempt to lessen the angst because I don't deal with it well. Or tension. *pulls hair*

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Jae-hyuk discovers Ga-young has fallen asleep and covers her up. Her phone rings and he answers gleefully when he sees it's Young-gul, knowing what Young-gul would assume. Anyone would. And Young-gul does. His face drops and he asks why Jae-hyuk answered the phone. Young-gul wants him to send her home, but Jae-hyuk doesn't want to wake her because she's sleeping SO well.

Just imagine what is running through Young-gul's mind: she's worn out from a hot tumble in bed with a gorgeous chaebol. Well, maybe not EXACTLY that. But close enough.

Anyway, Young-gul wants Jae-hyuk to leave his employee alone, but Jae-hyuk points out she works at HIS company today. YOung-gul finally orders Jae-hyuk to have her call him when she wakes and hangs up.

Fat chance buddy. Jae-hyuk erases the call from the register and smiles at the prize sleeping on his sofa.

O.M.G. the angst. THE PAIN. The smirking. The men. The machissimo. Young-gul do you seriously think she slept with him? Seriously? Whatever, Yoo Ah-in looks hot all anguished; Lee Je-hoon looks hot all smirking. I laugh off the tension made from misunderstanding.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

Understandably, Young-gul explodes, flipping tables and screaming in frustration. Aw, he's really in love. You tell that table! No one else can torture Ga-young but you! We got it! So does the poor table. What did it ever do to you? Maybe you and I can head over to talk to An-na's sheep for some serious therapy.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

In the morning, Ga-young wakes and is startled. Probably doesn't like the fact that she neglected her vigil. Jae-hyuk is eating and cooly reading the paper. She asks for the bathroom and runs off. When she's gone, Jae-hyuk's wall comes down and we see an insecure man trying to be stoic in the face of he woman he loves.

Seriously, just show this side to her. It's so much better than showing the 'vengeful bastard' side.

Ga-young comes out and he quickly resumes the "cool and aloof" reading the paper post. She refuses his offer for breakfast and to go to work when Young Young Apparel is such a mess. He wonders if she'll stay there alone, but she'll bring her currently idle co-workers to hang out.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

As Jae-hyuk readies to leave, his mother storms in with two goons and glares at Ga-young. She orders Ga-young to leave but Ga-young is frozen. Jae-hyuk turns into a boy and whines that it's not what his mother thinks. He gets smacked and called a useless bastard for his efforts.

Ack, why is my heart breaking for him? I need to steel myself and say "YOU DESERVE IT!"...but I can't.[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

(Lee Je-hoon is so hot...but that's one funny face. Teehee.)

Mom sends the goons to throw Ga-young out but Jae-hyuk beats them and drags her to his side before sending her to his bedroom.

Why, oh why, am I touched by a man who made a problem and then offers the solution?

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 12 Recap

So Ga-young hides behind the bed *titters* and Jae-hyuk orders his mother to leave. Mommy is baffled at how he can buy a place for one woman and have another stay at his.

For once, I agree with her. But then again, his parents didn't exactly raise him right or with any kind of love or moral fiber. Wait...stop making excuses for the hot, hot, hot jerk.

Jae-hyuk hollers at her, telling her to leave his place and mind her own business. She's incredulous that he can treat his own mother that way and looks incredibly hurt.

*Feels chest* Did I actually just feel a twinge of pity? Uh-oh. I must be broken. Any k-drama heart doctors out there, 'cause mine is obviously malfunctioning.

After glaring at Ga-young, mom leaves and Jae-hyuk fights tears.

Episode 10 dropped a percentage point to 9.6%. I can't really blame viewers. This show is suffering from severe multiple personality disorder.

So this website is called "Raine's Dichotomy". I think my emotions this episode really embody that. Brain versus heart. I was dreading writing this recap because I really didn't think I knew what to write besides exactly what happened. My brain was completely appalled. My heart was moved.

Special thanks to Hitomiakiko from Akiko's Morning Coffee for doing some spot translation for me!

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Episode 11 recap[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

It's another show down. Selfish man versus selfish man.

Jae-hyuk throws the dirty towel at Young-gul and that starts a verbal and a fist fight.

Omigosh, I have to say it. They have busted lips and look very kissable. But the lips are bloody. But the lips...

The chaebol demands to know if Young-gul had fun stealing his girlfriend. Then, he asks Ga-young, for the last time mind you, if she wants to come with him.

Ga-young stares at Young-gul and looks like she wants to throw up some ramyun and soju. When she doesn't answer immediately, Young-gul starts to freak out. Finally, she asks Jae-hyuk when he wants her to start. The answer: tomorrow.

Young-gul is as shocked as I am. Or maybe I'm not shocked. Okay, I'm not. As much as I wished for it, we all knew she was going to pick one of them. I'm guessing she chose Jae-hyuk because she was still feeling high on the injustice of Young-gul's decision to partner up with Dragon Jo.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Anyway, Jae-hyuk wants her to leave now, but when she hesitates, Young-gul grabs her things, chucks them outside onto the pavement and stalks into his office. Ga-young is pretty much horrified and heartbroken by this turn of events but has no time to think about it as Jae-hyuk grabs her hand and drags her outside.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Inside his office, Yoo Ah-in makes me want to cry with the extreme anguish he is able to express. I say Yoo Ah-in because he totally outacts this script. Young-gul deserves it. *wipes tear* Gah, Yoo Ah-in, I should not be wasting tears on this show!

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Jae-hyuk realizes Ga-young probably has no where to go and suggests his place. Before he can toss his prize into the car, Young-gul grabs her hand.

YAY! Wait, why am I into this show? WHY?! My heart was beating so hard during this scene and when Young-gul popped out again I literally said, "yay". As you can tell my brain and my heart think two completely different things.

So he grabs her hand and shocks the hell out of all three of them.

Young-gul: Ga-young! Where do you think you're going?!

He's not in control of himself; he is driven by anguish.

Young-gul: Are you really leaving?

Ga-young: *Avoids his gaze*

Young-gul: You're not going to see me ever again? Don't you know that I hate him?

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

He yanks her behind him and she guiltily meets Jae-hyuk's eye. Young-gul orders her to go inside and she meekly obeys, much to Jae-hyuk's utter dismay. Both men have tears in their eyes.

Why am I moved by the tears of complete douches? Is it 'cause they're hot? Or is it 'cause the actors are too good for this show? HELP ME!!! And why do I LOVE that Young-gul grabbed her so possessively? *RAWR* But then I HATE that she so blindly obeyed. *Double Rawr* What happened to that spine she grew? Must've been made of straw. Or straws; the bendy kind.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Alone, Young-gul demands to know what Jae-hyuk can do for Ga-young. She's a vice president at Young Young Apparel while she doesn't even qualify to apply for a job at J Fashion. Jae-hyuk promises to give her the same when the time is right. With a sneer, Young-gul comments that a president should think of his employee and that it must not be like that at J Fashion.

Ouch. That statement packs a double whammy and Jae-hyuk reels from realization and frustration. First, he knows that Young-gul is right. Ga-young would be the lowest of the low at J Fashion, which is a serious demotion from her current position. Second, the president at J Fashion is the oh-so-compassionate Daddy Jae-hyuk who really doesn't treat his son well.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Young-gul collects her things and goes inside to face her. He forces the motionless woman onto a stool and physically turns her head to make her look at him. With infinite care, he questions her. Was she really going to leave? Where was she going to go? She can't just leave with nowhere to go. When he left his aunt's house, he had a lot of trouble, so she shouldn't ever think of doing it again or he'll kick her out himself.

She's crying and I'm falling for his heartfelt words. How did Yoo Ah-in make me completely change my opinion of this character in five minutes? FIVE MINUTES. That's the power of this show and this is why people keep watching although they don't know why. Individual scenes are really powerful and Yoo Ah-in kills it. Shin Se-kyung's big watery eyes kill me. Lee Je-hoon's manly mad face gets me. Yu-ri...well, Yoo Ah-in does enough work for them both.

Young-gul puts his hand on Ga-young's knees and promises that he won't misunderstand her so she shouldn't misunderstand him either. He retreats into his office and a ghost of a smile crosses her lips.

[Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11 [Spoiler] Fashion King: Episode 11

Choi An-na is giving a presentation and Jae-hyuk is really preoccupied. Then, he rudely leaves to go brood in his office.

I've never seen a character brood so much. Not that the Je-hoon lover in me minds. When he sets his jaw like that, *drool*. He broods and I just focus on the hot, because the reason the character is brooding is actually pathetic. He promises to marry another woman and then sets his eye on Ga-young who is obviously not interested. So I set my eye on him and ignore the ridiculousness of his character.

Jae-hyuk frets and worries over Ga-young's reaction when Young-gul yanked her behind him. He's also probably worrying about what to do about the fact that he told her it was the last time he was offering to "save" her.

[Spoiler] "Fashion King": Episode 9 Recap

by: Raine

Ratings rose according to AGB Neilsen from 9.0% to 9.7% for Episode 8. I bet it has to do with the OTP finally getting some screen time together and showing a bit of chemistry..

This is the episode where Young-gul and Ga-young's romance could've started. But a few monkey wrenches get thrown in. I'm sure we will have a whole mess of misunderstandings caused by secrets and lack of communication starting next episode. As for this one, I should hate Jae-hyuk. I really should. And I should think Young-gul's jealousy is stupid because he doesn't say anything to Ga-young. Should. But these boys are too cute. An-na is pathetic. Ga-young needs to step up and affect change herself instead of riding the tide.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Episode 9 recap

Michael has called "Young Girl" and their conversation wakes Ga-young who excitedly listens to Young-gul's side. The sketchy designer wonders if Young-gul can be in New York the next Monday. Although Young-gul's calendar is full, he agrees.

Yoo Ah-in's English is so adorable. He can even acted when speaking stilted English. American actors in Fashion King, take note. A Korean man who has trouble speaking English out-acted you. Shame.

Anyway, Young-gul is so happy he's on the verge of tears and so is Ga-young. They feel like this is their big break. And it would finally be something not tied to Jae-hyuk. High on emotion, Young-gul hurries into the workshop and shines the light of a pendant lamp on their new fashion creations.

Oh, fashion creations. What do you think of THAT for the name of a brand? Okay, it sucks, I know. But when you say it out loud it's kinda delicious on the tongue.

Young-gul, overcome with emotion, grabs Ga-young's face in his hands and promises that the first thing he'll do when he's rich is to buy an apartment for her.

He is looking so tenderly at her, my heart lurched. We all hope that it's the moment he admits his feelings and kisses her, right?

Nope. It's our meek little Ga-young who throws her arms around his neck and plants one on him - and he responds!

They pull away awkwardly but his hand is still on her arm. He tells her this can't happen between a president and an employee, pats her arms and stiffly walks away. Alone, both of them reel from the impact of the kiss. They press their hands to their chests, hearts pounding and shocked by the chemistry.

I love how much of a shock his reaction is to him! She is super embarassed and jumps on her bed to hug her blanket to her. Come on, Ga-young. Do it. You know you wanna. We all do it enough. You know you wanna... *squeeeeeeeee*

She does, but not aloud. She needs squeeing lessons.

Also, there's a dandy little cello solo in the song. Yay cello! Represent, my sexy instrument!

Speaking of kisses, Jae-hyuk is sitting in his personal theatre (how ridiculous does that sound?) watching...dun, dun, dun....the Titanic kiss scene with Celine Dion crooning in the background. He's remembering kissing Ga-young and all of their cute moments. And then he remembers his promise to protect An-na.

How cheesy is this? We get it. He's in kiss-y mode. Also, did he get a hair cut? Nom, nom nom.

An aside: During this part, my brother, who was watching the Heat game (which we won over the Jersey Nets, BOO YAH!), paused the game to call out, "Is that Titanic? WHY the hell are you watching Titanic?" And I cackled and answered that it was in one of my dramas. "oh".

(Check out Jae-hyuk's duds. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice...)

Back to Fashion King. Jae-hyuk, possessed of a decision, finds An-na at the company's mall and they head to the fancy restaurant for an awkwardly stifling meal. She asks after his health; he asks if they should get married.

Say wha'?! She looks as shocked as I feel. But then again, this IS Jae-hyuk, king of randomness. He has a real emotion and counters it with an idiot, irrational move. His modus operandi thus far. This boy needs to learn to deal with emotions in a big boy way.

They debate marriage as though it were a business transaction. Do you want to? If you want to? Then, let's do it. Then let's. When shall we set the date?

Sure, marriage ain't no big deal... Weren't they passionately in love or something? If he's her goal, then she's not going about it the right way. Even if he's unenthusiastic, she should be. it sounded like they were trading cattleor sheep. Maybe that's how he got those sheep

(I will comment on Kim's outfit later...)

Before they can set a date, Daddy Jae-hyuk and white-haired Design Director Kim show up and they have tea together.

Dad heard through the grapevine that Jae-hyuk was ill.

And now I understand why Jae-hyuk is so messed up. The grapevine? Seriously, daddy? You need daddy school as much as Jae-hyuk needs big boy school.

Moving on. Kim asks Jae-hyuk if he's solved his "problem" and Jae-hyuk shares a panicked glance with An-na. This is news to dad who is immediately curious. Jae-hyuk tries to play it off, but Kim has an agenda and pushes the subject. He ends up explaining that a girl stole An-na's designs and sold them in Dongdaemoon. Where did he hear it? From Attorney Kim.

Daddy is shocked and looks as though he's going to beat Jae-hyuk raw later

Raine's issue. This show really deals with legalities inappropriately and takes ridiculous liberties with them. Lawyers by definition are two things: slimy and required to keep attorney/client confidentiality. What about that strange serving of the Notice of Intent to subpeona to Ga-young...

(Striking similarity, no?)

In his office, Jae-hyuk, still dressed as Beetlejuice, is brooding when Director Kim comes in dressed as...a PANDA! NOOOOO! Pandas belong in Rooftop Prince!

Kim's Panda costume makes his hair look like teeth stained yellow...

So Beetlejuice sits down for a heart-to-heart with fake Panda. Panda finds out the girl stealing the fabrics is the designer and thinks she's a genius. He wants her brought to the company to boost his career. He needs people like that genius girl working for him. Although it may be uncomfortable for An-na, it can't be helped. When CEO Daddy Jae-hyuk retires, Kim will have a hard time taking care of himself.

This fake Panda may be nasty, but his agenda is quite clever. He's trying to forge an alliance with Jae-hyuk to kick An-na out and bring real talent in. Cover his own ass. This caters to Jae-hyuk's plans. Hrm...

By Raine

Episode 5 rose in ratings, 10.1%. Now that the plotline is settling in, I think the ratings will be a bit better. I'm not sure about them rising yet.

Thanks for all the support for these recaps everyone! This episode, however, drove me a little bonkers. I want to take out both men, or lock them in cages so they can do no more harm and can be used only for me to look at.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Episode 6 recap[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap

We left off with the face off of the male leads. In one corner, Jae-hyuk armed with his poo-poo face. In the other, Young-gul armed with red stilettos?

What will happen?

Well, Young-gul remembers that An-na's pictures was in Jae-hyuk's wallet and recalls the writing on the back. "Ah, you're the eternal love".

Since poo poo faces aren't good for fighting, Jae-hyuk resorts to his fists instead, and violently punches Young-gul in the face. Young-gul goes down and scrambles back onto his feet, wincing in pain. They trade words and Young-gul gets in a pretty wicked head butt!

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap

Jae-hyuk has a feral look in his eyes and lunges at Young-gul who stops him with the words, "An-na is sleeping". Young-gul gets snarky. "Shouldn't you offer me a refreshment since I took care of her?" His tongue is much mightier than his fist and it is all Jae-hyuk can do to snarl, "Get out!"

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 6 Recap

(Nom nom nom. Two hot guys fighting. Nom nom nom.)

Before leaving, Young-gul admires the red stilettos in his hand and slaps them again Jae-hyuk's chest on his way out.

Jae-hyuk: Tell Ga-young to come to my office by 10 AM tomorrow.

Young-gul: Why?

Jae-hyuk: You don't' need to know. Just get out.

Young-gul: When An-na wakes up tomorrow, tell her I'll call her by 10 o'clock.

HAHAHAHAHA! Young-gul FOR THE WIN!

Young-gul returns to Glasses' shop.

A total aside: Now we have to cheer, because I finally figured out Glasses' name: Chil-bok. It's on a phone later on in the episode. :D GO ME!

Anyway, Young-gul returns to CHIL-BOK'S shop where Ga-young is asleep atop cardboard boxes. He notices her beat-up heels and remembers An-na's. Please tell me he's hoping to give Ga-young some sexy stilettos in the future. Please, please, please.

Pulling off his shoes, Young-gul lays down beside Ga-young and passes out - he's still really drunk. The motion wakes Ga-young who is startled by his proximity.

*Cue sexy music in Raine's mind*

She covers him with her blanket and settles down. Then, nervous, she flips over.

*Record scratch*

This woman needs to know that she has to make moves on Yoo Ah-in Young-gul when she gets the chance

[PIC] [PIC]

The next morning, Jae-hyuk is in the living room, stonily reading the paper when An-na awakes and beelines for coffee. When did he get there? He is in a foul mood and warns her prevent actions that can lead to misunderstandings. It was difficult enough to start their relationship again. She needs to be more cautious.

An-na, of course, is perplexed and wonders if his father said anything to him. That shocks Jae-hyuk who asks if she met with his father. She did and when President Jung asked, she told him that they intended to marry.

Although the answer was to be expected, Jae-hyuk looks thoroughly unnerved and rises. She said the right thing, he tells her.

His face says otherwise.

I dunno about you, but they don't look like a happily engaged couple. Also, aren't people who are dating supposed to tell each other things, like, "Hey, I'm miserable, give me a hug?"

[PIC] [PIC]

Back at Chil-bok's shop, Young-gul is hungover and eating breakfast with Ga-young. When she asks if the woman he was with yesterday was An-na, he giggles like a school girl. Isn't she attractive? We're the same age.

Nice buddy. Nice. You lose the points you earned for the awesome headbutt and the snark

Anywho, he thinks it's destiny that An-na showed up at Dongdaemoon. Ga-young wards off the unpleasant topic by bringing up another: how is he going to deal with the debt on his factory? How long is he going to stay at Chil-bok's store? What's his plan?

Ga-young has got him pinned and he retorts that he doesn't have to tell his employee what his plans are.

Uh, especially if you, uh, y'know, don't have any.

Does this woman know him or what? He's got skills but no vision.

[PIC] [PIC] [PIC] [PIC]

Young-gul turns it back on her and asks about her discussion with Jae-hyuk? How will she get an order without any plan? He thinks he's being clever, turning the question back on her. But he's not, 'cause she has a plan.

She hands over a sketchbook, which Young-gul looks over with moon-y eyes. He has visions of runway shows and possibility - she brought him hope for the future. And Yoo Ah-in has brought me barrels of laughter! My stomach hurts so much right now from that ridiculously idiotic face he's making!

*Ahem* The further along this show gets, the crazier these recaps get.

So they're a good business pair with complimentary strengths. I still don't really see the romance between them. Just a one-sided crush on her part. And a whole lot of panting after An-na on his.

Episode 4 eeked .2% higher to 9.6%. It's still beating "Love Rain", which I have yet to watch.

This episode was sooooo much better in terms of plot. After four episodes of some serious wandering, it's starting to settle in. And I can't decide who I'm shippin'.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

After Young-gul leaves Ga-young to the malicious, violent mob and becomes the number entry on my hit list, his conscience threatens him with torture and death. So Young-gul hurries back to Young Girl, but he is too late. Only her luggage is left. The mob ate her.

Young-gul is finally learning to fight for something, but too bad Ga-young had to pay the price for it.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 5 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 5 Recap

At Jo Boutique, Madam Jo the Dragon Lady reminds Miss Go about the magazine interview and then is greeted by the ghost of Ga-young's past - a rather bloody ghost. Well, not really a ghost. But by Dragon Lady's expression you would think she was.

Madam Jo stupidly asks if Ga-young was beat-up. Why yes. Yes, she was. How about offering some first aid? No, that's too much. Dragon Lady has to blame Ga-young's failures at the New York Fashion School (NSF) all on our poor heroine. As if you had nothing to do with it DRAGON LADY!

But our heroine is quite ballsy. She asks to stay at the Boutique as she once had - that or, if Madam Jo hates her that much, for some money. Ga-young tells Madam Jo that she knows why she has to stoop this low, but the Dragon claims ignorance.

Can I beat her with an angry mob and claim ignorance?

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 5 Recap

When Ga-young realizes she's getting no money out of her heartless former guardian, she decides to stay despite the Dragon's threats to call the police. Oh, that will be wonderful to report during the magazine interview tomorrow, Ga-young retaliates.

YES! Point Ga-young. Fire pit for the Dragon.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 5 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 5 Recap

Ga-young heads up to her old room and throws together a make-shift bed. Gathering a comforter around her, she finally has a chance to look Into The Mirror. The face that stares back at her is pathetic: covered in blood, tired eyes, and dirt-covered cheeks. Tears cut small rivulets in the grime on her face as she cries out her misery.

Aw, she needs a hug. I'll give you a hug and we shall plot revenge on Dragon Lady together.

[PIC] [PIC]

Now we get to find out a bit more about Young-gul. He's at his aunt's house and she's nagging him about never contributing to the household and yet he comes to leech off her. She jabbers on how about he is embarrassing for quitting school and pursuing fashion. That's why his mother left - he should've gone to find her when he was in America. Young-gul is immediately on the defensive.

"You let my sister die because you never took her to the hospital!" He cries.

His aunt is furious. His family imposed on her and it was all she could do to survive, much less take care of someone else's sick kid. And what did Young-gul do? He went off to make money and never came back. If he was worried for his sister, he should've come back earlier. Young-gul, hurt, slaps an envelope of money down and leaves.

[PIC]

Outside, he hears his little sister call "oppa". He turns and sees a vision of his sick sibling calling to him, telling him to make money and come back. Young-gul looks an absolute wreck.

[PIC] [PIC]

Young-gul puts himself together and goes to meet the friend he sold Ga-young's designs to in the first episode. He shall known be known as Glasses. Oh yeah, Young-gul also steals his lunch. Haha.

Glasses informs him that the loan sharks are searching for him but Young-gul is more concerned with the fact that Glasses watched his female employee get beat up and didn't do anything about it.

Glasses replies as we all want to: Well, you didn't either, you jerk!

Perhaps having Yoo Ah-in naked in every episode contributes a point percentage point per ab appearance?This episode was still wild and crazy plot-wise but we've come to expect that and I think I might stop commenting on that...maybe. That kiss was hot and we got to see Yu-ri's acting chops and how they get the foursome back to Korea...sort of.

After his meeting with Michael J. Lauren, Young-gul is floating on clouds and literally runs into An-na. While helping her pick up the garments, he notices that she's been crying. He thanks her for her help, but she is lost in her misery of being cast aside for the unknown Young-gul.

There is more Baroque music that sounds like a rip-off of the Bach Invention in Bb. Anyone else notice this?

Young-gul buys groceries, whistles on his way home and in generally way too happy. Why? The drama gods are coming to get him. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 4 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 4 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 4 Recap

At a meeting with a bunch of horrid American actors, the American presenter is dissing J Fashion's and the Korean fashion industry's attempts to break into the global fashion market, so Jae-hyuk has him fired. Hee. Hee.

Can I fire the Stateside casting director? PLEASE. Or sic a rabid sheep on him? Please continue to read to see the sheep of which I speak.

Jae-hyuk meets with a man from the Korean consulate who hopes that Korea's fashion industry will soon have the same place in the world as its highly ranked electronics industry. Well, at least that's his cover. He's really digging around for information on the "criminal/fugitive" Kang Young-gul, mutineer, murderer and thief.

A bit surprised and taken aback, Jae-hyuk denies knowing him even when the consul points out that they attended the same high school. The consul received a phone call from Korea regarding a student that Jae-hyuk helped who was involved with the fugitive. He wanted to meet Jae-hyuk before speaking with her. After one last inquiry, the consul leaves and Jae-hyuk smiling painfully.

[PIC] [PIC]

Ga-young carefully makes her way home, wary of followers who could get Young-gul arrested. Turns out, she ain't wary enough and the devil's spawn Jung-ah has spotted her entering an apartment building different from the one Jung-ah had visited.

[PIC] [PIC]

When Ga-young opens the door, she is greeted by a grinning (AW!) Young-gul and a candlelit steak dinner. He'd promised her meat every day after all.

Be still. My. Heart. I LOVE steak. Young-gul, marry me. And feed me steak. And ice cream.

Young-gul playfully evades all of Ga-young's questions as they eat and take adorable photos of themselves. He explains that Michael offered him two options: his have own fashion line or to meet a buyer. A buyer would allow Young-gul to sell his clothing in a department store, which is great, because it's really difficult to get such spots in Korea.

[PIC] [PIC] [PIC] [PIC]

A knock on the door jars them out of their jolly mood. They still and Young-gul quietly checks the peep hole to see who it is.

It's handsome Jae-hyuk, which makes Young-gul scowl, yank the door open and trade words with Jae-hyuk who has come to see Ga-young.He barges in, makes a snide remark about their small apartment and cuts to the chase: are you in love with Young-gul or does he have dirt on you? Why are you putting everything you've worked for on the line for that jerk?

As he speaks, Young-gul tries to interject, but Jae-hyuk ignores him, speaking only to Ga-young who is still as a board. Jae-hyuk wants Ga-young to be considerate of his position since he helped her get into the school. He also thinks that Young-gul should just confess and stop bothering someone who has a future. Or, should he just call the police? Young-gul curses at him and Jae-hyuk punches him in return.

So Jae-hyuk doesn't have as much self-control as I thought....

by: RaineLast weeks ratings dropped from 10% for episode 1 to 8.9% for episode 2 and it's really not hard to see why. I think I'm probably one of the only people enjoying myself. Why? It's THAT ridiculous. I'm trying to figure out what's going on and when I can't, I just make fun of it and wait for "Rooftop Prince" on Wednesday!This week was a bit better than last week but it's still setting up background. Yoo Ah-in is carrying the show on his very sexy, often nekkid, shoulders.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

episode 3 recap[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap

Kang Young-gul's request has just been brutally rebuffed by Jung Jae-hyuk who has no money for the likes of Young-gul. So the incensed Young-gul barrels into Jae-hyuk's meeting with Tory Burch, the teach of the New York Fashion School (NSF). He yanks Jae-hyuk up by the collar, embarrassing him in front of his important guests.

Young-gul had cast aside his pride in order to beg for money for food and is furious at Jae-hyuk's disdain. He dares Jae-hyuk to go hungry for four days and then see what he's capable of. Security comes and takes him away, kicking and screaming and hurling death threats at the stunningly hot heartless Jae-hyuk.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap

But Young-gul wasn't without his wits as he assaulted the chaebol - he gained a pilfered wallet full of hundreds. Tha's what I'm talkin' about. The wallet holds not only cash but a ticket for a Michael J. Lauren show and a picture of a woman with "Forever love, An-na" written on the back (yes, it's Choi An-na). That gives Young-gul a chuckle.

Now did anyone else notice the mashup of Michael Kors' and Ralph Lauren's names that make "Michael J. Lauren"?

Anyway, Young-gul's not about to get off that easy. A kid runs by and snatches the wallet and Young-gul gives chase, but loses the thief. He still has An-na's picture though.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap

(It's a god-given gift to look that hot with an angry face.)

Jae-hyuk discovers his wallet is missing and then watches the news confirming that Young-gul was indeed telling the truth about the mutiny. Also, the news touts current leader of the mutiny as Young-gulof course. Maybe he should bribe the newscaster with a Lorax Rolex.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap

The next phase of Young-gul's story after selling knock-offs, running from loan sharks, escaping a mutiny that he supposedly led and being turned away by a fellow countryman is the street rat phase. He is starving and starts eating restaurant leftovers, garbage and stealing from corner stores.

As poor Young-gul lives as a bum, Ga-young writes him an e-mail, telling him how well she's doing and how glad she is to have met him. When he's available, she'll treat him to a good meal. Hun, go get him now. He needs food.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 3 Recap [PIC]

(Yoo Ah-in is amazing. The story is ridiculous and still his sad face makes me want to cry. Come to noona, baby. She'll take care of you.)

On a bench, which looks like that crazy homeless lady's bench, Young-gul eats stolen junk food and cries out his misery. By chance, he spots coats in the trash and scratches his butt as he goes to check them out. I like that particular, rather delicious, detail.

He finds a two dollar bill in the pocket and uses it at an internet cafe where his smell becomes the topic of conversation. Ga-young's e-mail induces more tears and preempts a visit to NSF where she is finishing up a long day.

An impatient Young-gul waits for Ga-young to finish and the moment she appears, his sorrows immediately lift and he embraces the stunned fashion student tightly. "Where were you? I've been looking for you!"

*raises hand* I'm here. I will feed you. I just made kimchi fried rice for dinner. It was good.

Bong Sook is reading about the mutiny when Ga-young brings home the stray. They greet each other, she taken aback by his beautyand the stench. He moves to sit on her sofa but she suggests a shower because he looks like he's traveled a lot. He agreesphew, crisis averted.

Ga-young fills Bong Sook in on his story and Bong Sook wonders if they are more than boss and factory worker. The conversation reminds her of the article she just read about a man from the Dongdaemoon market and a mutiny

Yumminess is next.

[PIC] [PIC] [PIC]

Young-gul comes out of the shower in a towel and gets the once over by both gaping women before he asks for a change of clothes.

[PIC]

On the roof, Bong Sook informs Ga-young that just because a man has a body like that, doesn't mean that she shouldn't report a crime. Ga-young tries to explain it isn't that way, but the older women isn't having it. If Ga-young gets caught with him, everything she worked for will go down the drain. Bong Sook is willing to report him, but Ga-young decides to move out instead.

by: Raine

This episode takes the crazy amalgamation of loan sharks, replica fashion, impoverished heroines, chaebol second leads, evil mothers and one ups it. It was sort of all over the place. We have too many different elements floating around that I'm not sure where they came from. But I do know one thing - EVERYTHING is connected. How they will manage to do it in a believable fashion, I do not know. Or maybe they won't.

That said, it was entertaining. Yoo Ah-in was hysterical/heart-breaking. Kwon Yoo-ri finally made her appearance, albeit briefly. She was pretty good actually! *thumbs up* Ga-young's character got WAY more interesting and I'm falling in love with actor Lee Je-hoon. Waiter, bring me one of those.

"Fashion King" features Yoo Ah-in, Sin Se-kyeong and Lee Je-hoon.

Aboard the Midas, the Korean captain berates his crew for taking a break: no work, no pay. Work, work, work. One man says they need a rest to which the captain replies, "You know 'shut da mouth'?" Then he proceeds to beat the sailors. Young-gul intervenes and asks the captain to use words and not fists. Captain Shut da Mouth decides that Young-gul wants the beating in place of his shipmates and gives it to him.

[Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 2 [Spoiler] [Raine's Recaps] Fashion King: Episode 2

In his bed, Young-gul flashes back to the time when his father left him and his sister, Yong-sook, with their aunt. His father wanted to look for his mother who ran away to the U.S. with another man. Even though Young-gul's aunt didn't want to take them, his father leaves him and his sister with her anyway.

(Jae-hyuk admires himself in the mirror dressed to the nines. I would admire myself, too, if I looked like him. Even though he's a douche, is it sad that I still really like him? His boredom and snark amuse me.)

Assistant Kim explains to a bored-looking Jae-hyuk that the company wants a great designer on a minimal budget and it's also beneficial to the school to get a donation. So let's go to a planning meeting! YAY! Well, Jae-hyuk just says nothing and looks bored. I think "Yay" is more exciting.

[PIC] [PIC]

After hearing the startling news that she rejected her admission to the New York School of Fashion (NSF), Ga-young runs into Jung-ah, Madame Jo's daughter, who smirks in evil satisfaction. She feigns surprise at their meeting and mentions how she was admitted: she'd been on the waiting list and another student who'd received a full scholarship rejected the admission. Whoever it was, Jung-ah is thankful. But oh, she has to go, a car is waiting for her. Toodles.

Bitch.

[PIC]

After the disheartening news and the infuriating meeting with smug Jung-ah, Ga-young wanders around the City for a bit. Then she callsYoung Girland asks for the president. However, he's not there. (He's busy sailing the high seas.) Dejected, she wanders around and gets chased off a bench by a scary homeless lady and intimidated by a pair of bickering black men.

She's at the end of her rope when she finds a motel for the night. It is then, at the end of a trying day that she is able to put the pieces together: Madame Jo had hidden the mail from her and her daughter, Jung-ah, had smugly wanted to thank the "person" who rejected the admission so she herself could be admitted.

Then come the tears and my wish for the plucky heroine to now surface.

[PIC] [PIC]

Young-gul is rudely awakened by the crew who has decided to mutiny and get rid of the Koreans on board.

Let's throw them into the sea. It is green.

Please, take a moment to ingrain that gem of a quote into your memory.

*Pauses for a moment of silence*

They throw the captain and two other Koreans overboard before turning on a fearful Young-gul. He quickly recalls the time he pedalled fake watches to a pair of tourists and cries that he has a Rolex! Of course, he sounds like he's saying "Lorax". Oh Dr. Seuss...

Gosh, all these non sequiters. Anyway, they don't care about a Rolex and get ready to chuck that beautiful piece of man into the ocean when he screams that he can help them get to America. There are more Rolexes...in America...with...his friend?

Back in New York, Ga-yong sees an article in the morning paper featuring a Korean man, Jung Jae-hyuk, handing the dean of the NSF, Tory Burch, a sum of money.
