Seo Ji Hye Makes A Shocking Style Transformation In “Red Balloon”
On the previous episode of “Red Balloon,” Jo Eun Kang (Seo Ji Hye) seemed to be turning to the dark side after facing crushing blows to her pride and self-esteem. When Go Mul Sang (Yoon Joo Sang) harshly told her she wasn’t good enough for his son, Jo Eun Kang’s chilling change in facial expression suggested that his brutal words may not have affected her the way he’d hoped. Instead of staying away from Go Cha Won (Lee Sang Woo), Jo Eun Kang sought him out and seduced him by saying, “Even though I’m frightened and afraid, I want to take this all the way to the end to find out where that end lies.”
In newly released stills from the drama’s next episode, Jo Eun Kang takes things a step further by undergoing a dramatic makeover in what seems to be Han Ba Da (Hong Soo Hyun)’s image. In stark contrast to her usual style, Jo Eun Kang dons an eye-catching pink suit with a matching scarf that looks exactly like something Han Ba Da would wear—and she also sports a brand-new haircut quite similar to Han Ba Da’s signature bob.
Not only does Jo Eun Kang fully adopt Han Ba Da’s style—right down to her newly manicured fingernails—but she even goes so far as to imitate Han Ba Da while ordering coffee at a café.
To find out why Jo Eun Kang has decided to transform into Han Ba Da 2.0, tune in to the next episode of “Red Balloon” on February 18 at 9:10 p.m. KST!
