Sandwich War of Kdrama

There’s a battle going on in kdrama land right now and we are not talking about a love triangle. No, we are talking about a sandwich war between TVN and SBS.

TVN is currently airing The K2, a thriller drama that follows the storyline between a bodyguard and a politician’s secret daughter. Subway is a major sponsor of the drama. The K2 writers incorporated Subway as the employer of the young man who exposes Anna’s address onto social media. Not only does this drama show a shot of a Subway store and its employee outfits, they also show a scene where Lee Yea Eun enthusiastically biting into a Subway sandwich….even though the mansion has a housemaid who makes homemade meals.

Check out how Subway is incorporated in The K2:

SBS’s Jealousy Incarnate is sponsored by Quiznos. During a flashback scene where Na Ri (played by Gong Hyo Jin) tries to start a conversation with Hwa Shin (played by Cho Jung Seok) by choosing between different Quiznos sandwich choices. The sandwich chain fits into the storyline a bit smoother and more realistic. Also, unlike K2 where the sandwich company is featured by supporting roles, Jealousy Incarnate’s main characters have lines about the sandwiches instead of a Quiznos store.

The K2 Fashion Impressions

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.

Check out Je Ha’s look here:

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.

See Yoona as a living doll here:
