Even as "The World of the Married" has finished its initial airing the influence of Kim Hee-ae and Han So-hee in fashion circles seems set to last for some time to come. With Kim Hee-ae appearing in Elle and Han So-hee appearing in Cosmopolitan, the two actresses are showing off two very different versions of femininity. This contrast, indeed, is a big part of what let "The World of the Married" come to prominence in the first place.
The characters of the two actresses, after all, represent maturity versus immaturity, emotional power through a lifetime of experience versus the ability to effectively plead to parental figures. This duality was critical throughout "The World of the Married", and often counterintuitive. Kim Hee-ae, at times, demonstrated surprising sex appeal, while Han So-hee would come off as an inherently untrustworthy temptress.
Both images are appealing in very different ways and the actresses very effectively show that distinction in their competing covers. Either one could easily become a style in its own right in the months to come, although in the more immediate sense, the main curiousity from fans regards which projects the actresses will tackle next.
