South Korean actress Kang Sora was a stunning vision in red when she walked the blue carpet at the 17th Busan International Film Festival last week, but she left hundreds of photographers and fans stunned when a wardrobe malfunction almost left her bare-backed and red-faced.
Looking nothing short of a goddess at the opening ceremony of the 10-day festival, the Sunny star was greeted by scores of screaming fans and enthusiastic cameramen.
But as she walked over to meet them, she tripped up and stepped on her full-length dress, which caused the zipper to rip and tear right down the back. Lucky for her, she managed to hold the outfit together before the split caused her dress to fall off.
Kang's agent later told reporters, "The zipper part of the dress is usually weak. She stumbled while greeting her fans and stepped on the dress, causing the accident. Everyone was surprised. Thankfully, nothing big happened."
Busan's film festival is one of Asia's most important showbiz events for the top celebrities from Hong Kong and China. Chinese stars Lee Byung-hun and Han Ga-in were there, as were Cecilia Cheung and Zhang Ziyi, who came with their South Korean co-star Jang Dong-gun and director Hur Jin-ho to promote their movie Dangerous Liaisons.
Actress Oh In Hye, who caused a sensation with her revealing orange outfit at last year's festival, was a no-show this time, so the heat fell on Bae So-eun who wore a 4mil won (RM11,000) dress that exposed her whole back while barely covering up her front.

The dress certainly had an effect on China and Hong Kong's netizens. "I didn't know where to put my eyes," posted one user, while another noticed, "It's like she's not wearing anything."
