Itaewon Class is a recent hot favourite amongst Korean Drama viewers. Based on a webtoon, the series stars Park Seo Joon as Park Sae-royi who opens a bar-restaurant in Itaewon. Besides the storyline and chemistry between the cast, another thing that has been gaining traction among viewers is Park Seo Joon’s hairstyle in the show.
It’s not surprising as Park Seo Joon’s hairstyle was trending in Korea when ‘What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?’ came out as well.
Also known as the Chestnut hairstyle, the hairstyle is not a common one in Korea. Singapore’s equivalent would probably be a Number 2 haircut with a slightly longer fringe?
Korean netizens have also commented saying this is a hairstyle where you need to have confidence in your looks instead of your hairdresser.
The vlog by Park Seo Joon undergoing the transformation to Park Sae-royi has gained over 2 million views thus far.
NeighborBro is a Korean Youtube channel that started off doing Mukbangs of Vietnamese food but has since branched out to produce other content as well.
The 115K subscribed content channel recently released a video of him getting a haircut to look exactly like Park Seo Joon’s in Gangnam, Cheondam-dong.
A Korean news website has also reported this with the headline: Korean Youtuber’s Disaster(?) After Following Park Seo Joon’s Hairstyle.
Being curious about how someone other than an actor or a star would fit into the hairstyle, he challenged himself by visiting a hair salon.
The Youtuber is seen being satisfied with the outcome, quoting this as a once-in-a-lifetime hairstyle.
