Behold, the tracksuit that would not die

[NOT REALLY SPOILERY BUT…]

Oh, this just cracks me up. So. Hard.

Secret Garden watchers will be familiar with Hyun Bin’s obsession (or rather, Joo-won’s) with his expensive, hand-stitched, sequined Italian tracksuit, which everyone else mocks as tacky and unfashionable. Despite the fact that Joo-won has been the butt of many jokes as a result of his Suit of Sparkles, he apparently can’t let go even when his soul has been transported into the body of Ha Ji-won, as we see in these teaser stills from the drama’s upcoming Episode 8.

Dying. Laughing.

I know some of you were hoping that once the bodies were switched, Joo-won would use his endless cash flow and sophisticated fashion sense to spiff up Ra-im’s tomboyish, casual wardrobe. I think we set our hopes too high.

What kills me (even more) is that given their size difference, Joo-won has either had to procure another designer sequined extravaganza, or he’s gone out of his way to retrieve his old one and then altered it to fit his new womanly shape.

This drama could do nothing but physical comedy gags between Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won and I would be in heaven.

Secret Garden, which passed the 20% ratings threshold within four episodes, airs on Saturdays and Sundays. As if our weeks weren’t long enough.

Attack of the Sparkly Blue Tracksuit.

World Domination!

---

Though, as a side note... isn't Raim more tomboyish on the outside, yet I think Hyun Bin is making her seem more girlish on the outside. Same with Ha-Ji Won where I kinda miss Hyun Binnie's little neurotic personality that I can't quite feel in Ha-Ji Won.

(Then again, both made pretty big impressions on each actors kinda has to live up to the acting of the other actor in their portrayal....)

I was thinking the exact same thing! Raim was tomboyish and is being played too girly sometimes by Hyun Bin...I think that Ha-Ji-Won is being played more true to form, but yes all of the neurotic behaviour is gone, but it is early days yet, as they are just getting used to the switch.

agreed :) haha.

yup..though I love love love the show, I think Hyun-bin could toned down the girly thing a bit, dont remember Raim that girly, but I think Ha Ji-won did okay.

0

I wonder if the girliness seems all the more obvious because it's exuding from a man.

0

@anais I totally agree with you ;)
Because if Ra Him was in her own body ~ she wouldn't be encountering all the close proximity moments with Oska, but being in Joo-won's body~ she has no choice in encountering Oska on a daily basis & on a private level ;)

Props to Binnie for being such an awesome GURL!!! :D
Also to Ha Ji-Won for being so excellent in portraying an arrogant ass <3

I can almost picture it...people walking around in sparkly tracksuits. Stores running out of them, people demanding them.

I agree, waaaayyyy to skinny. I much prefer the Hyun Bin of old, with a bit of meat on his bones, he was fiiiineeee!!!

Here's hoping that this new look is a bit of method acting gone a step to far, that somehow this look is related to the obsessive quirky/arsey character and is not here to stay.

I saw a spoiler pic of Ha Ji-won in a big red coat, so at least Ji-won did improve Ra-im's wardrobe. But this pic of her in the tracksuit cracks me up. I wonder whether we will see her in the leopard print one too?

God forbid I wake up in the next couple of days and see the headline "Secret Garden sparks sparkly tracksuit trend."

If a piece of clothing can make someone as beautiful as Binnie or HJW can look absolutely ridiculous, I would advise the general public to save it for halloween.

JB I agree, it has to be an obsession for Joo Won not to see that people will either:

a. Think he bought Raim a matching suit

or

b. Raim is wearing his suit

Either way eye-brows would be raised. :-S

Couples sparkly track suit = scary

Maybe Ra-him can wear the "Oska socks" to get back at Joo-wanda. :-D

I was not expecting this piece of hilarity. Even with his quirky fashion sense, I didn't think joo-wanda would cross that line. The poor girl is forced to see herself wearing this spectacular horror. Does this mean they're comfortable letting each other seeing their original bodies?

Exactly what I needed to make a dull tuesday sparkle!! thanks for the crack javabeans, so wrong, so good...

Ha-ji won is seriously channelling Joo-won those pictures. Even as I at her face I don't really see the actress or Ra-im there anymore..what amazing acting. I love Binnie and totally teared up laughing at his comedic antics in ep 6, but I still need a little more to be convinced that it's really Ra-im and not HB acting . (Maybe I just know his face too well-Don't kill me, fans).

Would it be wishful thinking to see them in couple sparkle wear? Even bts? Surely someone's thought of it.

Saturday needs to be today.

I agree with you. Sometimes I still see Joo-won in Binnie and not Ra-im. It is the mannerism.

i think its because girls can act tomboyish and attain the character whereas when boys act like girls it is actually hard to make it seem.. natural.
Not to pick on Ha Ji Won or anything, I miss the neurotic Joo Won who knows he is neurotic in her acting.. Am I making sense? lol
