I was strolling through harpersbazaar.com today and came across this really awesome article on The ’50s Films That Every Fashion Girl Should Watch. I’ve seen almost every movie on that list and can testify to it’s soundness! Haha
Anyways, after looking through that list, I thought it would be cool to make one for Korean dramas.
So without further ado, here are the top 5 Korean dramas I think all fashion lovers should watch!
1. My Love From Another Star
This has got to be the most popular Korean drama out there right now. I was speaking with one of my friends who by no means watches dramas, and even she was telling me about this one. From episode 1, everyone in this drama shows off an amazing wardrobe and it just gets better as the show goes on. Fun fact: one of the YSL lipsticks as well as some clothing pieces Cheon Song Yi was wearing in this drama sold out in department stores all around the world while this drama was airing.
2. Birth of a Beauty
This drama was extremely fun to watch and brought a lot of great fashion ideas to the table. The plot focused on how important it is to feel comfortable in your own skin and why you should dress up for yourself, not others. Highly recommend this one!
3. Miss Korea
Miss Korea is based around the 90s and goes over the ups and downs a person can go through when in a beauty competition. At times, it reminded me of a Korean version of The Devil Wears Prada, so it was exciting to see the main character grow and develop.
Okay, so this drama is still airing right now with three weeks till the final episode, but I had to add it to this list. The main character has an amazing wardrobe that shows off her simple and chic style, while the second lead wears tons of interesting styles that you would expect to see at NY fashion week. By far my favorite drama right now, for the fashion and the plot.
5. Cheongdam-dong Alice
This drama is too cute! It focuses on a girl that dreams of becoming a fashion designer in the extremely rich area of Cheongdam-dong and throughout the drama you get to see some amazing styles and outfits. I believe this drama is shorter than the others as well, so if you’re looking to start with one isn’t too long, I’d recommend this one.
What do you think of my list? Like it, dislike it?
And lastly, what is your favorite fashion based drama? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. 🙂
