Hotel King Kdrama Episode 17 Fashion Review
Mo Ne and Jae Wan finally found out that Roman Lee is Baek Mi Nyeo son. But while Mo Ne received the news well, Jae Wan looked like he was harbouring suspicions.
Mi Nyeo called both of them and showed them a case full of notebooks, which turned out to be Ah Sung Won’s diaries. Joong Goo has instructed Jae Wan to locate the diaries but they seemed to have disappeared. Mi Nyeo had it with her all along but claimed that Sung Won entrusted them to her before his death. She wouldn’t let Mo Ne read the diaries though – not before she does well in the running of the hotel.
If you have already read the previous episode’s recap, you have seen Mo Ne’s ensemble here already. The slitted lace skirt is actually just the white version of the black one she wore in one of the earlier episodes.

Jae Wan visited Joong Goo in prison. Joong Goo acted like nothing is amiss between them and ranted about how his friends cannot be relied on. Jae Wan told him he knows the truth – that he is his real father and not Ah Sung Won. While I would readily believe the worst of Joong Goo, I really think he doesn’t know Jae Wan’s his son.
The white on white trend is so flagrant these days and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It looks so fresh and because it’s on trend, it doesn’t seem as intimidating as it once was. Or was I the only one intimidated with wearing an all-white outfit?
CIEL is hosting a concert for a famous pop artist. But because of the hotel’s recent bad rep, the artist cancelled. Mo Ne approached Chae Kyung, who knows the artist, and asked her to find his whereabouts so she can go and persuade him to push through with the concert.
Mo Ne takes her style game up a notch and mixed this sheer polka dotted top with an architecture-printed pencil skirt. I would have preferred the look to be capped off by a pair of closed pointy pumps though instead of Mo Ne’s peep toe platform pumps for a sleeker effect.

Mo Ne finally got the information she needed from Chae Kyung but Baek Mi Nyeo beat her to it. Seriously, Mi Nyeo is like an information hub in this drama. She knows everything!
They tried to get in the good graces of the pop artist but he cannot be easily swayed. Mi Nyeo then decided to threaten him with what she knows of how he became popular.
Meanwhile, Ah Mo Ne finally visited Joong Goo in prison. Joong Goo told her if he’s going down, Jae Wan will go down with him because he is his son.
Mo Ne felt betrayed with this new revelation. She took it out on Jae Wan, who was carrying out his duties as usual. I really can’t stand Mo Ne’s lack of professionalism. She can say what she wants with Jae Wan’s true colors but at least he does his job well, something that she can’t say for herself when she’s always making a spectacle of herself.
The concert is pushing through and Jae Wan is supervising the set up of the stage. One of the technical guys approached Jae Wan and handed him some sort of recording device stuck to one of the equipments.
I really wish they give Woo Hyun the screen time he so deserves. Everyone seems to be in awe of him, after it was revealed that he is from a rich family. Everyone except Mo Ne, who just found out about it and feels betrayed.
Woo Hyun begged for her forgiveness and said he only lied to her because he is ashamed of his dad.
Mo Ne is once again sporting an all-white ensemble. She copies a runway outfit. I’m not getting tired of her white outfits, surprisingly. The texture play is quite interesting to see, despite the rather bland color palette.
It’s also nice to see Woo Hyun out of his concierge uniform. I miss seeing preppy menswear in dramas.
Ah Mo Ne’s top and pants are from:
Mo Ne might hate Jae Wan but she still loves him enough to let Joong Goo go so Jae Wan won’t be imprisoned with him. Baek Mi Nyeo was there to help Joong Goo for her own nefarious reasons.
Jae Wan heard that Joong Goo got released from prison and he confronted Mo Ne about it.
