Fashion King (Korean패션왕; RRPaesyeonwang) is a 2014 South Korean film that comically depicts the coming of age of a high school student as he matures into adulthood and discovers a passion for fashion design.[1][2][3][4]

It is a film adaptation of the popular webtoon series Fashion King written by Kian84 (whose real name is Kim Hee-min), which was published on Naver from May 5, 2011 to June 6, 2013, and received four million hits.[5]


Woo Ki-myung, a completely ordinary high school student, has a crush on Hye-jin, the prettiest, most popular girl in class. So to win her heart, he decides to transform his image and become the coolest, best dressed person in the world. As his mentor Nam-jung introduces him to the world of fashion, Ki-myung finds himself entering into a rivalry with Won-ho, the school's toughest fighter. Meanwhile, he doesn't notice Eun-jin, who harbors a secret crush on him.
