Opening red carpet at the 14th Pusan International Film Festival

On October 8, the 14th Pusan International Film Festival, or PIFF, opened in Busan. (Yes, the city takes a different official spelling than the film festival. Blame inconsistent Romanization.)

As the largest film festival in Korea, it drew a large list of attendees, as you can see from the long list of red-carpet walkers. It was definitely a star-studded opening night, and even included one familiar Hollywood face (Josh Hartnett).

This year’s PIFF features its largest lineup to date, screening 355 films from 70 countries, and closes on the 16th.

 

Ha Ji-won (Haeundae) is a goddess, as usual:

 

Jeon Do-yeon (Secret Sunshine)

 

Jang Dong-gun and Han Chae-young play love interests in Good Morning, President


 

Josh Hartnett poses with his I Came With the Rain co-star, Lee Byung-heon:


 

Im Soo-jung (Happiness) hasn’t been in the public eye lately, but it’s nice to see her again:

 

Jang Hyuk and Sung Yuri came together to promote their new film Rabbit and Lizard. Sung Yuri is luminous, although I don’t love her dress — but WTF with the hair, Jang Hyuk? He looks like a lion (and not in a good way).


 

Siiiiiigh, Kang Ji-hwan (Rough Cut):

 

So Ji-sub (Rough Cut) was recently voted (along with Choi Ji-woo) as having “prettiest hands,” which fans have been saying for years.

 

Kim Haneul (Level 7 Civil Servant):

 

Rawr, Kim Kang-woo (Story of a Man):

 

Su Ae (Like Fireworks, Like Butterflies) comes on the arm of Kim Nam-gil (Queen Seon-deok):


 

I don’t love the color (or the cutout on the chest) on Kim So-yeon‘s (IRIS) dress, but she’s lovely.

 

It seems that Eom Ji-won (Like You Know It All), top row, and Go Jun-hee (General Hospital 2), bottom, were going for the same look. I think I have to give the edge to Go Jun-hee for a crisper silhouette and more sophisticated cut of the dress.


 

Kim Yun-jin (Lost)

 

Yeh Ji-won (Daytime Drinking)

 

Yoon Kye-sang and Jo Jae-hyun of Executioners:

 

Han Ji-hye (East of Eden) arrives with Im Joo-hwan (Tamra the Island)

 

I have definitely seen this dress on the red carpet before (I remember loving it then, but it loses its impact on the second go-round), but Han Ye-seul (Tazza) always looks fantastic on red carpets.

 

Park Joong-hoon and his Haeundae co-star Uhm Jung-hwa, who appears to be wearing a sparkly muumuu. And she’s Korea’s sexiest pop queen?

 

Han Eun-jung (Lawyers of Korea)

 

What a difference a year makes: Min Hyo-rin (Triple) hardly registered a blip last year. Her drama wasn’t successful, but I think she proved she has acting ability, and I’d like to see more of her in the future.

 

Add Jung Ryeo-won (Ja Myung Go) to the list of people who look awkward

 

Seo Woo (Tamra the Island) comes with her Paju co-star Lee Seon-kyun:

 

My favorite badass Park Hee-soon (A Million):

 

Choi Jung-won (Kingdom of the Wind) is very pretty, but if this were Project Runway, someone would be telling her she looked like she put on a garbage bag:

 

Lee Hana (Triple) has this habit of showing up to awards shows looking uncomfortable in dresses that fit strangely.

 

Oh, Lee Min-ho (Boys Before Flowers). I miss your Gu Jun-pyo hair. And your Gu Jun-pyo flair.

 

Gu Hye-sun (Boys Before Flowers) came as a director for her short film:

 

Han Hye-jin (Terroir)

 

I think the hot pink clashes harshly with the red carpet, and it hurts my eyes to look at, but the dress looks cute on Choi Kang-hee (Aeja).

 

Jang Seo-hee (Wife’s Temptation)

 

Byun Jung-soo (Last Scandal of My Life)

 

Viva Las Vegas, Sunwoo Sun (Queen of Housewives):

 

Yoo Ah-in (The Man Who Can’t Get Married). He’s so cute.

 

Jeon Hye-bin (2009 Hometown of Legends)

 

Yoo Hana (Sons of Sol Pharmacy) looks adorable… but her co-star Yoo Sun looks like she stepped out of an ’80s nighttime soap. And by that I mean Dynasty.

 

Last but not least, Wang Seok-hyun (Speed Scandal)! His mom must LOVE dressing him.

You're the best, JB, thanks for the usual photo goodies from Pusan. *rolling up sleeve* - this is gonna be fun, I'll be back with some thoughts, but just one question first: Where is (my) Jung Woo-sung!?

@ Samsooki:

I saw a photo elsewhere of Kim Min-joon, he's definitely there, and scruffilicious. No clue about anyone else you mentioned.

That's the best outfit I've ever seen on SO SI-SUB (LOL! haha I know it's So Ji-Sub but I couldn't resist a little poke at that immature poster from last week. Lame, I know). Most other photos show him wearing granny sweaters, but this outfit is unique yet stylish and suits him well.

Jeon Hye-bin's dress also looks oddly like a black, plastic garbage bag. (Maybe these "garbage bag" dresses just photograph poorly, but they must look better up close, or why else would these actresses actually wear them?

-Im Soo-jung looks otherwordly and the dress suits her delicate frame but I'm a partial fan.

-Hate Han Chae-young's dress. It makes her well endowed boobs look weird and drabby.

-Would love Kim Yun-jin in a different color. Black is boring but the dress's style and cut is really nice.

-Kim So-yeon has attitude and confidence to carry most looks even when the dress is not fantastic.

-Han Eun-jung looks great in the dress.

-Gu Hye-sun is too causal. Perhaps wear a tux if she is channeling diane keaton.

-Jung Ryeo-won who is usually very fashionable is a total miss.

-Bokifer looks so bad. I think its the worst dress I've seen. Even the garbage bag one was semi interesting

and oh So Ji Sub has beautiful hands and you know what they say about hands.

My favorite lady looks: toss-up between Ha Ji-won (goddess, the perfect description by JB) and Im Soo-jung (sexy and innocent, accentuates her image) - both dresses are also different and standout from the usual Pusan/Baeksaeng fare.

So Ji-sub (are we calling him So Si-sub now? or SSS for short?) - definite improvement, but the entire cut is all toooo small for him, other pictures highlight how the jacket, shirt and vest all look like its bunching up and ready to rip. He's pulling an amazing Hulk for sure.

Fave male look: Jang Dong-gun (absolutely impeccable). Special shout out to Byung-hun-oppa, he looks dashing, as usual, but his arm candy wasn't so complimentary an asset.

A word of warning to the darling Seo Woo - please, please, number 1 rule for little ladies with very ample endowments - NEVER wear a dress that smashes your boobs and causes the excess flesh to ooze out like a blob. Always go for V-necks, drapes, and/or one-shouldered looks. Otherwise, above the head and below the waist, Seo Woo was so pretty!

Wang Seok Hyun - CUUUUUUTE

--

Is today's theme for dresses Greek?

Eom Ji-won and Go Jun-hee look like twins. Seriously. But the dark dress and lipstick scares me....
Ha Ji Won looks gorgeous. She was probably the best dressed.

Jang Hyuk's hair doesn't seem appropriate for the event...

Kim So Yeon looks really beautiful, depsite the weird dress (the opening at the boobs part looks awkward). But her hair and her clean make up made her look sexy.

I don't like Han Yeh Seul's dress... it looks a bit flat. Maybe it's the lack of curves or boobies, but from the side view, it doesn't look interesting.

Uhm Jung Hwa is a lovely women, but the dress ages her... Is it the hair.

Min Hyo Rin is pretty like a living doll... but the dress...

Actually, Seo Woo looks like a doll. The dress, the face, the small frame...

I love Goo Jun Pyo. Lee Min Ho... not so much. *runs away from brick*

And is it me or does Lee Hana's boobies look weird!? Like.. in the left pick it looks like she could poke an eyeball out from those things o.O

Her pose doesn't look so good when she pinches up her dress the way she is doing. It's not revealing any legs or anything -.-

I had an 'experience' with Josh Hartnett at a bar in the Village. I danced with him for a while but he was such a skeeze. Very handsy. And drunk. And kind of greasy. His friends were much hotter.

First time commenting on fashion. I’m such a big fan of Lee Byung hun, that seeng him here made me want to comment.

I have two favorite woman look, in this order: Im Soo-jung and Go Joon-hee. However, if I’m going to be fair, I must say that there were three beautiful dresses and the third lady was ha Ji-won.
Nine dresses didn’t speak to me at all. However, I did a list, and among the nine, four were just devastatingly awful. I quote; “It hurt too look at them” Anyway the four: Han Chae-young (not attractive in any away… I mean the dress) Han Ji-hye (she looked like if she was going to the office… in a long dress, which then it means she is still out of place… oh well!) Choi Jung-won (“garbage bag” I so agree) Yoo Sun (OMG!!!)
I have to mention Lee Hana because it bothers me to look at her… ok; her boobs are just too much!!! The dress is not ugly is just not for someone so “large” around the area.

Favorite man look, it goes without saying much (since I have mention to be a huge fan) Lee Byung-hun, he looks simple but very stylist, I like that. Kim Nam-gil (which is my favorite) he looks very modern and sophisticated. And Jang Dong-gun looks good as well, very manly. I like for a man to look manly, so… Lee Min-ho was not on my well dress list… it was the big tie, I mean, BOW.

Ah. Too late to edit my last post, but I HAVE to mention this.

Yoo Sun!? YOO SUN!?

I looked at her picture but did NOT realize who she was! Since I left off SOSPharmacy a bit ago, I thought she was a new actress, til I looked at her face more. I thought she was a veteran Ajumma actress... She seems to have aged a lot in that dress... -_-

"NEVER wear a dress that smashes your boobs and causes the excess flesh to ooze out like a blob."

Oh, I looked back to what see what you were talking about... (I loled at the word "blob") and yeah... it makes it look her look a wee bit chubby. Maybe if the dress was a bit higher, right below her armpit.. so her boobs wont be... "oozed" out >.<

@ samsooki, I think since PIFF is a film event, artists such as Suna or Binnie who do not have a film project (to push) this year would not nec show up.

I love Im Soo-jung and Go Joon-hee as well. Goddess-y looks r fine, but I don't really like the excess ruching around the waist, even on smashing bodies of HJW and HCY it added bulk.

JDG... is God. and he looks sooooo dashingly young for his age.

Hmm, I don't have a favorite. I was surprised by what LMH was wearing. Yikes! Not liking the outfit and I miss the GJP hair on him. And who let GHS wear that? She needs to wear dresses more often and stay away from that! But damn, Gosh Hartnett was looks HOT!!!

1. My top men at the PIFF:
Jang Dong Gun (thank you for shaving off your mustache!), Kang Ji Hwan (chronic stunner on the red carpet), Kim Kang Woo (yes, even despite the mustache - take a clue from JDG and shave it off, please), and Wang Suk Hyun (how adorable!).

2. My top women at the PIFF:
Soo Ae (looks classy and "dananhae" as always), Ha Ji Won (indeed looks like a goddess), and Kim So Yeon (looks gorgeous despite the "hole" on her chest).

Seo Woo is cute but what the heck with her dress? where's her chest? oh..wait I can't see her waist either..Instead I see a UNIHIP..hehehe..
She should have worn a dress that is somewhat tight on top to show off her asset.eh..hem..boobies and not worn a dress so big on the bottom that makes her looks even shorter.

Gu Hye Sun - I know she is attempting for a "director" look, but must she wear her director's "hat" and button up man shirt to a prestigious film festival??

i looked at his tie and was left speechless. it's....pretty big?

#7 NYC – What do people say about hands like So Ji Sub? I didn’t get it.

ok if I have to explain that to you might be too young (or maybe not from the US). Its not specifically hands like So Ji Sub's per se but a man's hand being a reflection of the size of their ____.

Hint: Koreans call it the same word as pepper. Matter of fact koreans decorate the front of their house with a garland of peppers when a boy is born. Samsookie did you hear that?

When I saw Su Ae's hair, I immediately thought of Kang Hae-na's hair in the My Fair Lady stills! As for Jung Ryeo-won, I was disappointed, since she usually looks so good. Gu Hye-sun was too casual, and I remember her wearing a similar to outfit to another event.

Lots of neutrals at this event, which is elegant but not quite as fun to look at. I love the ruffles and waves that many of the stars are wearing though. And little Wang Seok-hyun...Oh my. I wish I had a little brother; then I would actually play dress-up! (Which I never did as a kid)

lolz -- good thing there were no liquids on my desk at the time i read this. thank you!! i also love "Bokifer" as a nick. have to agree: the bugliest (butt-ugliest) dress/look ever, enough to give Daepung pause.

@JB "was recently voted (along with Choi Ji-woo) as having “prettiest hands,” which fans have been saying for years."

i have to respond to this. I have been saying this for _years_ about SJS and now I feel so... affirmed. ^^ i remember telling it to one k-drama friend and she shrugged, "uh, i guess so, but who's looking at his hands?" keke.

I normally do not read the comments after the photos, but this time I did ,and I find all my OT's friends...

Lee Min Ho I love him in BOF , but who the heck dress him ??? I mean the "tie" was BIG, and WHITE. Yuck.

I mean his mini me Wang Seok Hyun was dressed to the 9- perfect.

@langdon813,
What happened to Park Kyu? He appeared either very nervous or "wooden"...

@lovenyc52 Soo Ae was pretty...but part of me went, where Hyung Tae?

I've said it before and I'll say it again... my child will wear knee socks and britches on a regular basis. So cute!! He may hate me through his teenage years but he'll eventually forgive me.

Lee Min Ho, if you're reading this, I know you have this whole "I'm really just a lovable doofus... now be hypnotized by my perfect, good-natured smile" thing going on. And I'm really happy for you. But you really, really, need to bring back the perm. Not because you'll capitalize on your immense "Gu Jun Pyo" popularity... but because you look better like that.

Bokifer looks terrible. I kind of feel like she deserves it. I know I'm not supposed to project my feelings for a character onto the actor... but I just did.

Black Gowns are boring.

Man-bangs are creepy.

Kang Ji-Hwan makes me happy when I look at him.

I miss Josh Hartnett.

OK, well... I'm going to go set my alarm clock for whenever the whole Grecian Goddess look goes out of style so that I can enjoy looking at Red Carpet pictures again.

@37 Hey cingdoc!

I am an equal opportunity spammer; no thread is safe. I have even been known to hijack my husband's laptop for K-drama emergencies. Or just because.

I don't know why Park Kyu (aka Im Joo-hwan) doesn't look too thrilled in those pics, because I certainly was when I saw them! Maybe because Beo-jin came with her married, expectant-father co-star instead of him? Little hussy. :-D

And I agree with mishane (whom I shall henceforth call Josh Hartnett's GIRLFRIEND...heehee) Lee Ha Na's boobs are...hard to miss.
