For those on the outside looking in, the world of fashion can seem like a glamorous whirlwind of delicate designer frocks, 6-inch heels, and rhinestones sprinkled everywhere. The industry definitely comes with its peaks, but its valleys often come in the form of sleepless nights, rejected sketches, and not-so-pleasant encounters. 

Mainstream TV has granted us with sneak peeks into the dynamic industry via the fictional worlds of Emily In Paris and The Devil Wears Prada. Netflix's The Fabulous follows suit as the newest K-drama for style-savvy folks to binge.

The Fabulous cast members

1. Chae Soo Bin

The cherub-faced Chae Soo Bin occupies the rom-com series' leading lady seat as public relations manager Pyo Ji Eun. The actress literally puts on another hat as she rocks a short bob with fringe for this role. Previously, we've seen her wear a jjok in Love In The Moonlight, a ponytail in The Pirates, and a full set of bangs in I'm Not a Robot.

2. Choi Minho

Shawols know Choi Minho (a.k.a. Minho) for his fiery stage performances as a member of SHINee, but the K-pop crooner is transforming into photo retoucher Ji Woo Min in The Fabulous. His acting career started in 2012 as high school heartthrob Tae Joon in To The Beautiful You. Since then, he's embodied memorable swoon-worthy guys like Hwarang's Kim Su Ho, My First Time's Yoon Tae Ho, and Medical Top Team's Kim Seong Woo.

The last time we saw Lee Mi Do on the small screen was when she was a divorce lawyer and Kim Ha Neul's best friend in 18 Again. In this stylish web series, she plays a stylist named Hong Ji-seon, who struggles to make it big in the industry. This is Mi Do's second time to co-star with Soo Bin, as the two have worked together before in 2015's Cheer Up!

9. Jeon Soo Kyung

Jeon Soo Kyung's strengths may be on the musical theatre stage (She's starred in Korean productions of Mamma Mia!, Chicago, and Kiss Me, Kate, FYI), but she's certainly just as skilled on screen. Viewers might recall seeing her in Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce), Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, Welcome to Waikiki, Chicago Typewriter, and more. As someone who effortlessly plays eomma characters, she'll be portraying Sang Un's mother in the show.
