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.
