Fashion King: What a Commercial Film Misses

Fashion King: What a Commercial Film Misses Written by Thuy On November 25, 2014

Being the first film ever to be adapted from a Naver webtoon, and not to mention a majorly successful series that hit a record of 4 million views, Fashion King cannot avoid being subjected to heavy expectations from the comic’s fans.

For the original webtoon version of this story, the author Kian84 is said to have “captured [Korean] teen-culture with wit and satire” with a matching sketchy drawing style. The characters may appear in over-the-top appearances and behaviors, but they are also realistic enough so that teenagers can relate to. Missing these appeals, the film is considered incapable of doing justice to Kian84′s work.

In all honestly, the product is not a bad representation of Kian84′s original work, as some reviewers have pointed out

[HanCinema"s Film Review] "The Gifted Hands"

By in posted Oct Comments off

Despite the kidnapping and murders not being the main draw of the film, it does pretty well with that part of its plot, as it has all the necessary elements to make it engaging. Most will worry over a child, the investigative process is made highly suspenseful with a couple of well placed chases and as portrayed though Choon-dong"s emotional reactions to it and the killer is very unsettling when he does appear. An overall good production and the good cast do not disappoint here.

In its main appeal, the movie really hits all the right notes. We have a slightly naive, but good-hearted cop who is shunned by his peers, a mysterious young man who in behavior is the polar opposite to the protagonist and a brotherly bond based on a common goal and past trauma. The characters are written with just enough baggage and emotion to not be overly corny, at least for the most part, and the chemistry elevates this
