I really liked the plot of this show, but it didn't quite hit the right spots for me. Being a huge fan of K-dramas I was ecstatic to find some K-films on a recent flight and watched all of them, but I was disappointed that this movie didn't get my in the heart like so many K-dramas do. This was a bit sad since it combined so many elements that I love, fashion, a comic-book/webtoon styling, great cast, comedy, angst... but it never quite got there.

I feel like this plot really could have done with being made into a drama instead, there was enough conflict to be explored through 16 episodes, or even a 10-episode web-drama would have been good. The acting was really engaging from Joo-Won and the rest. I'm not sure about Sulli since I haven't really seen her in much, but I thought she did OK.

One of my favourite films is Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World so I loved the styling of this film, but I felt it was quite jarring showing how bad the bullying was to the cartoon comedy. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to feel dark or fluffy so it ended up just being uncomfortable.

There were a lot of sub-plots that could been excellent in a drama, such as the "bad guy"'s daddy issues and the romance triangle being worked in more. That all could have been really fun, I feel like some of the material was a bit wasted in a movie an hour and a half long.

I definitely think this movie is worth watching, but comparatively it wasn't as great as other things I have watched. I thank it forever for introducing me to Joo Won though.

A great cast, a funny plot, some laugh, some tears, a little bit of romance, ... that's what Fashion King is all about.

The main reason why I watch this movie is for is casting mostly. I mean gaah Sulli & Joo Won ?! What else can I ask while two of my favorite actors play together. And I must say that Sulli's acting improved a lot from the past few years (The Pirates & Fashion King clearly shown her improvement).
As expected from Joo Won he also proves once again how good as an actor he can be, in a dorky and cute way this time.

The universe here is fashion, school & rivalry. I must say that the combination of the three of them is rather great. I didn't laugh as much as I expected, but I felt very entertained.

It's a refreshing movie with a pretty nice cast and a funny story. Watch it if you want to pass a good time.

ps: special mention for Joo Won OST's song - Happy Birthday
