Is this not WWW? I mean, of course, the Worlds’ Worst Wig? The worst wig in all this world, and the otherworld.

Is it alive? Is it going to lift off? Is it poised to eat Yoo Seung Ho’s brain? Is there life on Mars?

However one looks at it, it is bad. BAD.

Full frontal. Bad.

How about the back? Pretty bad.

Set off against a goat? Still bad.

Windswept? Nope, the badness is still there.

Aw, the poor baby has a look on his face that says, “Jade Emperor? What Jade Emperor. I hate this thing on my head. Can I go home now?”

How about we give the hanging down bits a drastic trim, then? No? Still no-go? Sigh.

No wonder Yoo Seung Ho’s acting in Arang and the Magistrate is a trifle awkward. Wouldn’t you be stiff too, if you had a creature perched on your head?

(Thanks to X for the octopus pic)

Seriously, folks, I can’t think of any wig in k-drama history as bad as this. Can you? Submissions with pix please!

  1. Love this post! And ROFLMAO at that octopus wig! 😆

    Which episode is that last YSH screencap from? He looks like someone’s halmoni!

    • That screencap is from ep6, but they started hacking back the sides from ep5. Only, as is often the case with damage-control hair-dressing, to make matters worse. Really, I don’t think anything can save this Epic Wig Fail.

  2. It’s bad but it’s versatile lol! I think it has a rival in Cheon Eum-Ja’s wig from Faith. At least it’s not covering up the pretty face!

      • Calling Joonni or Softy! 😀

        I’ve only watched one episode of Faith and the name Cheon Eum-ja does not ring a bell. Plus… you all know I mostly screencapped one character the entire episode…

        • Thundie, go on AisianWiki under Faith and you’ll see who I mean. Does the name Damo from New tales of Gisaeng ring a bell?

            • He plays the weirdest character ever, who kills people by making their ears explode (well, kind of) with music from his magic flute. Not in it much as of episode 6. But he wears this long white wig that covers half his pretty face. If I didn’t know it was Sung Hoon (and I had to look it up to be sure), I wouldn’t have recognized him. Such a waste of gorgeous!

  3. Serendipity, I’m sure you can find quite a few from exiled men of the Princess’ Man. On a more contemporary note, how about Ji Sung in Protect the Boss? Oh wait, that was his real hair……

  4. How about the 1 worn by Park Yeong Gyoo as Tae-kang’s dad in I Do I Do? He was wearing it during interview and first month working at the same company as his son and Ji An? That 1 is hideous too… *I’m still looking for the pics*

    • Hmm, if this is wig sabotage, we want more! *runs from lilibaiyu*


      On the other hand… there’s a k-movie also called Bichunmoo with Shun Hyun-jun as the hero (or vampire?)…


      • LOLOL Thundie…. OK, now I feel at a distinct disadvantage because I still don’t know how to embed photos in the blog. (Massively tech-challenged Late-Adopter here) but that first photo is NOT from the series I was talking about (and of course the second photo is of the charming actor Shin Hyun Joon – that’s from the movie version, whole other thing.) Did you SEE the photo in the link I sent??? Better yet, give up your secrets on how to embed and I’ll post it. I’m tellin’ ya, Thundie…it’s not just bad, it’s like something sick crawled up there about an inch below his hairline and died. 🙂

      • Now, if you are going to talk about Shun Hyun Jun, you will have a WIDE choice of bad wigs. As dearly fond of him as I am in Shadowless Sword, and I loved his dreads, there are others who…ummm..don’t.

        • @momosan

          Aw, but come on… he was so deliciously evil (aka in my lexicon anyway, Sexy.) Sure, he was wearing Bad Dreads, but is there an actual category comprised of “Good Dreads?” I think not. All artistic decisions to plop dreads on the head an actor are by definition either revenge or spiteful envy. My guess is that Shin Hyun Joon most likely propositioned the hairdresser’s girlfriend the week before. 🙂

  5. So Ji Sob’s wig in the first episodes of MISA. He doesn’t even have the excuse of being in a fantasy sageuk!

    (I have tried to post a pic but to no avail)
