hyuna is one of my favourite artists. it is not only her music that is great but also her style. going through her instagram you can get a good glimpse into her wardrobe as she publishes not only her stage outfits but also her personal style. I would describe as her style as “sexy casual”. she doesn’t shy away from fashion and I feel like she is rather provocative considering the south korean ‘”prudish” mindset. as I aspire to be as fearless with fashion as she is and I wouldn’t mind looking as sexy casual as she does I collected 5 tips on how to dress like hyuna.

shapes. to achieve that sexy casual look mix oversized items with formfitting ones. this I feel like is THE tip on getting that comfortable sexy look without going full-out.

patterns and colour. hyuna is not shy when it comes to patterns and colours which makes her outfits and style in fashion so interesting and unpredictable.

accessories. when an outfit might seem a little plain she is not shy throwing in some interesting accessories such as bucket hats and glasses.

sneakers. although hyuna mostly wears heels on stage she is rather casual in her daily life wearing sneakers.

red lipstick. when describing hyuna’s style you can’t of course forget her signature look. the red lipstick.

korean drama recommendation: uncontrollably fond 함부로 애틋하게

kim-woo-bin-suzy-uncontrollably-fond Uncontrollably-Fond-korean-dramas-39753086-349-500

it is time for another kdrama roccomendation. uncontrollably fond is a kdrama that I came upon when searching for something new to start watching. I didn’t know particularly what the drama was about and I haven’t heard of it before. what intrigued me was its main actor 김우빈 (Kim Woo Bin). as I have heard of him before being that really attractive heart throb of an actor I wanted to know what all the fuss was about and decided to start watching.

“Sin Joon Young (Kim Woo Bin) and No Eul (Suzy) were inseparable and very much in love in their younger days. But uncontrollable circumstances separated them and they went their separate ways. Joon Young is now a superstar actor and singer, while No Eul became a producer-director of documentaries. When their paths cross again years later, Joon Young discovers that No Eul is now a very different person than he remembered — materialistic and willing to do anything to get ahead. Is there any hope for Joon Young and No Eul to rekindle their past relationship?” (plot found on viki) Or might there be something that they can’t overcome?

this is honestly one of the most romantic and heartbreaking drama I have ever watched and I would definitely recommend you to start watching it (today!). I now also completely understand the fuss around Kim Woo Bin, he is an amazing actor (I was truly shocked at how good he is) and he is hot. if this doesn’t sell you on watching this drama I don’t know what will.

my favourite korean youtubers

kindacool or 아영 was one of the first korean youtubers that I discovered and has since become my style icon. her channel is a mix of lifestyle, fashion, skincare and makeup. what I love about her channel and especially her videos are her editing skills and her taste of music. whenever she posts a new vlog I drop everything just to watch it as soon as I get the notification.

yoo’s beauty has one of the best tastes in fashion that I have come across of. it is very different from my own style but inspires me to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe. she mainly focuses on beauty but also publishes fashion and lifestyle content.

sobong is a makeup goddess but unfortunately she doesn’t post a lot of videos. but whenever she does I am very excited, because although I love makeup I am not very good at it and need every help that I can get. every makeup look that she creates is very unique and beautiful. if she is not posting any videos you can head on over to her instagram to find daily makeup inspiration.

leeanfilm is the one channel that publishes makeup tutorials that I can actually follow. her makeup looks a very subtle but beautiful and therefore super easy to follow. thanks to her I look kind of put together every day. the best thing about korean youtubers is the fact that I can watch my favourite content of fashion, makeup and lifestyle but at the same time I can study and improve my korean.

who are some of your favourite korean youtubers? let me know.
