Kim Sun (played by Yoo In Na), aka Sunny, is probably the best boss ever. She cares about her employees and does not micromanage. Although initially she’s stressed out about the lack of customers, she eventually prevails after getting a visit from the Goblin. She is wildly fashionable. Because she manages a chicken restaurant, she’s able to get away with more casual styles. However, she pulls off the boss lady look no problem.
For her boss look, Sunny chooses well fitted professional wear that have an edge to them. When she wears a blazer, she either adds a skinny belt that modernizes the look or wear the blazer as an overcoat for a chic feel.
When she’s not on the clock, she has fun with colorful bright overcoats. This leads to the Goblin calling one of her looks (image on the right) as a ‘fried egg’. Because Sunny is light hearted most of the time, the bright colors complement her personality.
We love the way Sunny accessorizes her looks. Her fashion pieces are always the latest trends. Check out her chic sunglasses and tassel earrings here:

Lee Min Ho and Gong Yoo are leading two of the hottest dramas right now. In both dramas, both men are slowly falling in love with their leading ladies. Although both men are stubborn and takes their time confessing their feelings, they indirectly communicate their feelings via their clothes.
In ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea’, Lee Min Ho plays Heo Joon Jae, a scam artist who falls in love with a mermaid. At first he thinks Cheong is just goofy and doesn’t take her seriously. However, as he gets used to her innocence and presence, he starts falling for her. How do we know he has already fallen for her? Pink Overcoat. No man wears an overcoat in this shade of pink unless he is in a committed relationship where he’s assured of reciprocated feelings.
Gong Yoo plays the goblin in ‘Goblin’. His character is confident and a bit silly so we’re used to seeing him in vivacious colors. However, we got the hint when we saw him in this cardigan in the same shade of pink that Joon Jae was wearing. The goblin is completely falling for Eun Tak even though he hasn’t confessed to her.
Jun Ji Hyun and Lee Min Ho are back! After hiatuses from both actors, they are now making a comeback with drama ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea’. Jun Ji Hyun plays Sim Chung, a mermaid who shares an ancient relationship with scam artist Joon Jae, played by Lee Min Ho. Sim Chung comes to land and starts creating trouble in Joon Jae’s life.
As a mermaid, Sim Chung has a beautiful sparkling gold tail. On top of that, Sim Chung really likes sparkly things. She chases a dropped bracelet because it sparkled in the ocean. When she started developing feelings for Joon Jae, she describes his eyes as sparkling. It’s no suprirse then that her very first piece of clothing as a walking human is a brilliant sparkly dress that shows off Sim Chung’s new legs.
On the other hand, Joon Jae is on vacation when Sim Chung crashed into his life. With nothing to worry about, he dresses tropical to match the beautiful island where he lounges. Even when he dresses up on the island, he wears a linen suit that is perfectly formal casual.
As Age of Youth progressed, several women in the drama go through major changes in their lives. Their new attitude towards life is reflected in the clothes they wear.
Yoon Jin Myung (played by Han Ye Ri) is no longer burdened by her family’s financial debt. Previously she didn’t do anything but study and work so she can pay her brother’s hospital bills. Her drab wardrobe was mainly dark colors because she didn’t have time to spend on vanity. When this debt is lifted off her shoulder, we see her begin to rotate vibrant colors and trendier styles into her wardrobe. Although these changes are subtle because she is still financially strapped, they are significant. The wardrobe lets us know that Jin Myung finally gets to enjoy some of her youth.
The most adorable transition has to be Eun Jae (played by Park Hye Soo). She has opened herself up to Jong Yeol and finally accepted his attention. Because of her past, she previously dressed conservatively so that she doesn’t stand out at all. After she made the decision to go out with Jong Yeol, she wore a skirt for the first time. Both Ye Eun (played by Seung Yeon) and and Ji Won (played by Park Eun Bin) are surprised Eun Jae even owns a skirt. See her feminine makeover here:
Although all the girls change in some way, Yi Na (played by Hwayoung) went through the biggest change. Once she started having a new appreciation for her life, she immediately stopped escorting and went out to get a retail job. For the first time, she has to watch her money and work in retail. Thus, it makes sense that for the first time, we see Yi Na looking…not spectacular. Don’t get us wrong. She still wears body fitting shirts and is still overall sexy. However, her new clothes aren’t the haute style that we’ve grown accustom to seeing her in. Check out her full transition here:
Jealousy Incarnate is a romantic comedy kdrama series about a weather announcer and a newsanchor. Pyo Na Ri (played by Gong Hyo Jin) is a hard working meteorologist who has an indeflatable personality. Lee Hwa Shin (played by Cho Jung Seok) is a confident news anchor who has an acidic personality. His best friend is Go Jung won (played by Go Kyung Pyo), who heads a fashion house.
Na Ri takes her job seriously, even if no one else does. She’s never taken a sick day, and she researches her own material rather than reading off the teleprompter. Because she is part of the news team, she is business casual when she’s on screen, but very casual when she’s off screen. We see this with almost all the younger female announcers where when they’re off screen, they are very casual. Check out the scene where Na Ri wears shorts so short that it looks like she’s only wearing a tshirt. Compare this to her more conservative outfits when she goes on air. Although it may be true that news casters are more casual during their off time, we don’t think it’s realistic that working professionals would wear such revealing clothes in the work environment.

Hwa Shin’s wardrobe is easier to plan out. He leans towards business formal so we see him mostly in black suits or a button up shift with loafers. He does not dress down when he’s not on air. He is uptight about work and life and this is reflected in his wardrobe.
See Hwa Shin’s formal attire here:
Jung Won owns a fashion house so his look is also business formal. Unlike Hwa Shin who takes himself very serious, Jung Won goes with the flow and takes more pleasure from life. This difference perspective is reflected in his wardrobe where although he also only wear suits, he makes sure to broaden the range to beyond only black or grey suits.

Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop is a kdrama series that revolves around the four owners of a small tailor shop. Because this drama is set in the fashion industry, we anticipate being treated to well thought out wardrobes. Here are two fashion trends that we’ve picked on so far from this series:
1.Off the shoulder shirts: Although off the shoulder has been the summer look of 2016, we were surprised to see Min Hyo Won (played by Lee Se Young) wear the look in the office. Of course, it helps that her family owns the company. We do not recommend this trend for office wear as this look does not make the business casual cut. Besides Hyo Won, we see Min Hyo Joo (Played by Goo Jae Yee) wearing a off the shoulder button up shirt dress. She wears it when visiting her more conservative in laws to make a statement.

2. Standout earrings: The women in this drama are bringing out all their blings. While Han Eun Sook (played by Park Jun Keum) rocks epic art deco dangles, the younger cast members opt for sleeker, more modern styles like Hyo Joo’s earring jackets and Choi Ji Yeon’s (played by Cha Joo Young) bar earrings.

In W, Lee Jong Suk is a playboy who built a media empire based on his search for his parents’ killer. He is (initially) loved by the media and the public. As a young established entrepreneur, he does not shy away from attires that have a bit of attitude. Although his style is business formal, he likes to have fun with his suits. Not only does he experiment with colors, he also tries different patterns. Keep an eye on his suits’ line patterns. These really elegant lines are simple in design but really elevate the suits’ sophistications. While his business look is polished, his normal day to day look is also on point. He normally keeps it simple with a white button up shirt and jeans. However, we noticed one look that could use a bit help. When Kang Chul was on the run, he started wearing ripped jeans. Although we understandd he’s distressed about the murder, there’s no reason to wear jeans that are also distressed.
