Jessica Jung on Moving into Fashion From K-Pop: 'It Came Very Naturally'

“Modern classic” is how Jessica Jung describes her line Blanc & Eclare. With a flagship store in Soho, a country apart from Jung’s native San Francisco and an ocean away from Seoul where she’s flourished as a K-pop star, things are moving in the right direction for the three-year-old brand.

Launched in 2014 amid her departure from one of South Korea’s most successful K-pop acts, Girls’ Generation, Jung serves as Blanc & Eclare’s creative director, infusing her personal taste into the label’s ready-to-wear, denim, eyewear, skin care, and accessories lines.

"Mad Dog" first teaser and stills

We have our first look at KBS’s upcoming crime drama Mad Dog, which promises a refreshing, fictional counter-attack on the frustrating realities of modern Korea. Yoo Ji-tae, Ryu Hwa-young, and Woo Do-hwan star as members of the titular Mad Dog team, formed to bring criminals committing insurance fraud to justice.

Yoo Ji-tae will play Choi Kang-woo, who is the team leader of Mad Dog, so named for his own stubbornness and persistence when it comes to pursuing his targets. He’s an experienced investigator with regards to insurance fraud, and has a 99% arrest rate, probably due to his eye for detail, spot-on instincts, and deceptively nice smile that hides the ability to see through to people’s true motives. He’ll be joined by Woo Do-hwan’s Kim Min-joon character, whose character description is curiously missing the professor title and string of degrees that earlier reports mentioned. Instead, he’s described as an intelligent (ex-?) con artist, who can wear any facial expression and become any person if necessary.

Mad Dog premieres on KBS on Wednesday, October 11.

I mostly posted this for those pics of Woo Do Hwan in glasses. I'm excited for him to be in another drama so quickly and I also love Yoo Ji Tae, so count me in for Mad Dog.
