Some K-drama fans are complaining that Kim Jung Hyun’s costumes in his ongoing work do not suit his body.
Overcoming controversies, actor Kim Jung Hyun recently made his first drama comeback after two years through “Kokdu: Season of Deity”. Although the public gaze on Kim Jung Hyun is not as negative as it was back then, his return work is not as successful as expected. Its rating performance is on a decrease. Many viewers expressed disappointment in the acting of the female lead and the boring script.
Although people were more worried that Kim Jung Hyun and his scandal in the past might affect the drama before its release, the actor is currently performing well. However, he still suffers controversy. It’s not about his acting or private life scandal, but the outfits and image of his character. Some pointed out that the pants Kim Jung Hyun wears in the dramas are too loose and they make him look “short”. Many fans even left comments asking the production team and stylist to change the costumes of their characters.
Apart from the criticism, there are still viewers who think the current image and outfits help Kim Jung Hyun portray his character better. The loose pants Kim Jung Hyun wears allow viewers to understand the background of his character, which is an immoral “old man” who has lived hundreds of years and witnessed numerous changes of humans on Earth. Some people explain that the details of Kim Jung Hyun’s loose pants and jackets look like Hanbok for men in the old times. As such, they believe that it was the intention of the production team of “Kokdu: Season of Deity” when designing such an old-fashioned style for this character.
