Is it possible to connect a wireless microphone to the K-50?

I am trying to dabble in vlogging with my existing K-50 DSLR, does anyone know whether a basic wireless lavalier microphone will be able to plug into the K-50?
For reference, I have something like this in mind but am unsure whether there is a terminal on the camera to plug it into: Wireless Headset Lavalier Microphone System -Alvoxcon Wireless Lapel Mic Best for IPhone, DSLR Camera, PA Speaker, Youtube, Podcast, Video Recording, Conference, Vlogging, Church, Interview, Teaching: Musical Instruments?tag=pentaxforums-20&

Thank you!

I don't think the K-50 has an audio input port. Models since the K-3 do, though.

One option would be to simply record the audio separately, which is what I think most people do.

You cannot use an external microphone with a K-50, however, you can record audio separately and combine it with the video in post.
