Up to this point, we have mostly seen Anna (played by Yoona) in sleeping gowns. We wrote about how the sleeping gown look has helped set her up as this fragile doll in a mansion. In episode 5 of K2, we see Anna finally putting on some clothes and slipping out of the house. At the same time, we see Anna’s storyline with Je Ha (played by Ji Chang Wook) develop. We don’t think it’s a coincidence that as soon as Anna is out of the house, we start seeing flashes of couple looks between Anna and Je Ha. Although the suits are the standard apparel of the bodyguards, Anna could have bought new clothes after her escape, but she did not. Although it’s hard to say if this was an intentional impression from the wardrobe planners, we are just happy that we see Anna in something other than dress gowns.

K2 is one of the most exciting thriller dramas that we’ve seen in 2016. The story line is both mysterious and aggressive. Ji Chang Wook plays Kim Je Ha, who was previously a deployed soldier. After losing his girlfriend, he suffers from PTSD and is trying to just stay alive. As a past solider, he doesn’t really bother with clothes. He is usually walking around with a simple t-shirt or sleeveless under shirt. The only time when we see him not look homeless is when he breaks into Yoojin’s house. There we see him wearing a leather jacket over a simple undershirt. This look is simple but still able to convey the ‘back off’ message.

Yoona plays Anna, a child woman who is stuck in political battle between her father and stepmother. She is left to grow up on her own in a tightly controlled environment. As a result, her demeanor has a childlike innocence. The wardrobe artist purposely dress Anna up like a doll. In the below shot in particular, we see Yoona in a sleep gown next to a teddy bear. It’s almost a real life reenactment of a doll house.
