To four “ride or die!” best friends who are dedicated to pursuing their passions in the fashion world, falling down means standing right up. Set to be released on 4 November Netflix’s The Fabulous captures the hustle and bustle of the fashion industry.
The upcoming Korean drama serves as a backdrop of the dreams, love, and friendship of the main characters, who work in the fashion industry as a marketer, a photographer, a designer, and a model.
Director Kim Jeong-hyeon uses the phrase “ride or die,” as often said by the main characters in the show, to describe how the four friends — Pyo Ji-eun (Chae Soo-bin), Ji Woo-min (Choi Min-ho), Joseph (Lee Sang-woon), and Ye Seon-ho (Park Hee-jung) — are “unafraid to explore and follow their passion” and portrays their thriving youth in a trendy way. The four friends are overloaded with work and hurt by people, but all it takes to get them back on their feet is words of encouragement for each other and some drinks.
When asked about the squad, Choi Min-ho defines the group’s friendship as “completely inseparable”, while Lee Sang-woon describes them as “someone I can rely on in good times and bad, and someone I would put first even before myself sometimes,” piquing curiosity about the strong chemistry of the four youths.
The cast were also instantly mesmerised after reading the script. Chae Soo-bin said, “The story about work, love and friendship of youths working in the fashion industry was portrayed in a manner that was not heavy, and it was really fun and attractive.”
Park Hee-jung, a top model who will no doubt spark curiosity in her acting debut, said, “I felt Seon-ho and I had many similarities. I read scripts of all four episodes that I received on the spot because I was so absorbed, and I was really curious and excited about the remaining episodes.”
Netflix’s The Fabulous premieres on 4 November.
