Great fashion has to start somewhere. And for aspiring designer Kang Young Gul, that somewhere is in a humble stall at the Dongdaemun Market, a crowded fashion district in Seoul known for its cheap clothing and wannabe designers. Young Gul is a little timid about pursuing his dreams to become a famous designer, until he meets Lee Ga Young, a confident young woman who shares his aspirations. Anna Choi, a brassy woman read morewho will let nothing stand in the way of what she wants, and privileged hunk Jung Jae Hyuk create a double love triangle.

This drama is basically filled with eye candy whether you are a girl or boy. The fact that the ending was literally the worst drama ending (regardless of coupling biases) of all time kind of affected my review ratings!! The story keeps you anticipated and guessing plus Yuri did an okay job considering it was her first time. Truly, the storyline in the beginning was really good with like a modern Cinderella read more feel. If you don't mind getting heavily disappointed in the end then go ahead and watch this drama.

ok, i know there are many ways to make a bad ending of dramas... but so far (among all dramas that i have watched), this is the worst ending. i dont really understand what's going on there? ok, i have to admit all the actors/actresses are doing their great job to portray their characters but the storyline has a very serious problem, i cant see any fashion element that has been seriously read more described in this drama other than the dragging and nonsense love square. therefore, the title fashion king is a big misleading. i do hope to see some serious great fashion sense in this drama but oh gosh, look at the boutique greedy ahjumma with her super wrong fashion sense.... worst among the worst. the cast are great but the plot really makes me sick. baby-faced beauty(another fashion related drama) is so much better in the plot despite an average cast and slow beginning. one thing i learn from this drama, plot is more important than the acting + face of the cast. the cast is great, good looking and great acting skill, but the plot ruin everything, it does ruin the cast's image too. i usually can accept the poor plot but this is too much. i reckon dont waste your time to watch this 'not clever' drama like i did.

Both have the same female lead- she is almost the same in both dramas. both have complicated emotions and relationships- not your traditional kdramas.

    I loved this drama. I loved to hate the characters cause it was meant for that. It is not a drama for you to fall in love and feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This is a drama about morals and greed not really about a couple falling in love. The reason why it ends that way is clearly explained on the drama on a few episodes. I sometimes wonder if people actually payed attention to the drama and the story cause it was all explained. I still love it. It shouldn't be compared with other dramas. The actress was annoying sometimes... I agree with that. But the drama is good. It is just that is not everyone's cup of coffee and people didn't get the end they wanted. In real life not everything ends the way we wanted and this drama showed that. Be your own judged.

    Not that bad in my opinion. There are loads of more popular dramas that are less interesting. It was painful to watch but I feel it is supposed to be that way. Don't watch it if you need light entertainment/positive message: Fashion King is more like a cruel tale of humanity.
    The two male leads were great.

    This is like the most misunderstood drama of the century. I guess, if you are too young you won't understand what's going on.

    Yes ..the rating for this drama dropped down because of the ending and the last episode...but for me its a good movie ,,,nice conflict and the actor also are performing their best but unfortunately the script writer is the person should be blamed for the script in this movie ...but in my opppinion this movie worth watching for those that dont care about the ending ...hehehe

    this drama is alright. ENding was unexpected and confusing. I guess the main guy deserved what he got for being such a coward, always running away and leaving his mess for others to deal with.

    Yes I agree Ako ... also the main character's personality turning trashier than it already is, another reason .
    You watched this laaaaaaater so you didn't watch it like us from the beginning week by week, you also sound like you read reviews before so that help you lower your expectations unconsciously ....
