This story first appeared on Lifestyle Asia Bangkok.

The romantic show focuses on real-estate CEO Yoo So-Joon who travels through time to change his future. He ends up marrying a photographer, Song Ma-Rin. Due to the nature of her job and her having to move around a lot, her style is rather minimalistic. She focuses more on comfort than anything else. Her style mostly revolves around t-shirts and a nice jacket. Although the way Song Ma-Rin dresses is rather simple, she is able to accessorise to make sure her outfits stand out. Most of her outfits are plain in colour, but with a pop of red or pink, she is able to transform her look.

This K-drama is all about boss women; women who are working at the best web portal companies. They decide to put their careers ahead, but also look good doing it. Each scene is power suits upon power suits. One of the best outfits on the show is the hot pink Theory power suit worn by Cha Hyeon. She is able to express herself while looking like a boss as she walks into the office building.

This show puts two opposites together. Lee Jung-Hoon is a news anchor who remembers every single moment he has lived. He forms a deep connection with model and actress Yeo Ha-jin who has lost her memory. The clothing that is worn in this K-drama is more elegant, as it plays to the personalities of each character. One of the best outfits worn by Ga-young is a yellow to orange ombre dress. It’s very elegant, and definitely works for her.

Like the title suggests, Law School is about law school. After an incident that occurs at the prestigious school, a law professor and his students fight for justice. The plot of the K-drama is enticing enough but the outfits worn by each character take it to another level. There were multiple all-black outfits, worn by Yang Jong-Hoon, the professor, but the one that is most memorable is the one worn by Kang Sol A. The structured black trench coat with white stitching adds a level of toughness to her demeanour.

This Korean Drama is all about the romance between an antisocial children’s book author and an employee in a psychiatric hospital. Although her counterpart spends most of his time in his scrubs, Go Moon Young never misses a beat with her outfits. One of the most memorable looks on the show is when she wore a beige dress with a brown belt around the waist. The length of the dress, the structure, and the way she carried it made it unforgettable for many viewers.
