Ever wondered why Korean stars look so good even when they’re at the airport about to board on a plane? Here’s why. So called ‘airport paparazzi photos’ has been an important factor that could tell the star’s fashion sense, so that even their fashion stylists are helping them to wear the perfect outfit at airports. However, the following stars are the real hot fashion icons who don’t even need the help of their stylists to look good.
Jessica 제시카 (Singer, former member of Girls’ Generation)
She shocked us with her recent withdrawal from Girls’ Generation, but she’s on her way to becoming a fashion designer with her business ‘Blanc.’ Jessica has been the hot icon for fashion icons, known for her casual looks.
Hyomin was well known for her fashion sense even before she made a debut. She was originally famous for being an ulzzang but got her fame with her daily pictures of her outfit. Some accuse her of photoshopping her full-body photos, but her fashion sense looks good anyway.
An emerging trendsetter, Go Junhee is at the peak of her career after cutting her hair short. With a tall, slender body, she can wear anything and will look good. Her fashion style and her haircut became such a big trend in Korea that wannabes rushed to hair salons asking for ‘Go Junhee hair.’
She has a lovely cute-looking face, but a stunning body, the no.1 icon for Bagel girl. Yes, the word ‘bagel girl’ exists in Korea, a term referring to attractive girls with baby, cute looking faces and voluptuous, glamorous bodies. Shin Mina is known the best for her wedding guest shoot, with the signature black-and-peach jacket.
Sohee has been around as a fashionista for ages now since her debut in 2005. She doesn’t have the standard beauty looks that any other girl in Gangnam would have, but her unique face and her slender body combined with her fashion sense made her into a fashion icon. She doesn’t dress up too much and rather dresses up in a casual way that we could easily try on ourselves.
A former model, Gong Hyojin is at the peak of her career with her drama ‘It’s Okay, That’s Love’ with Jo Insung. Her nickname is Gongvely, a combination of her surname and ‘lovely.’ Like Sohee, she doesn’t have the standard Korean beauty face but her aura makes her special, not to mention her fashion leans toward casual just like Sohee’s.
Guess how old she is? She’s actually a woman in her thirties and she never ages. She was a former member of a girl group Sugar, popular in the late 90s. After her singing career, she built her career by acting. Now, she is featured on cable TVs as beauty and culture panels. Her white skin and deer-like eyes dazzles along with her amazing fashion sense.
Jung Reowon, a former member of a girl group Chakra, successfully turned her career into an actress with ‘My name is Kim Samsoon,’ in 2005. After then, she got a nickname as ‘Korea’s Aoi Yuu’ because of their similar looks. Her style is bohemian, and she has her signature hairstyle – the bun – almost all the time.
She was first famous as an Ulzzang, just like Hyomin, but she debuted as a duo ballad group Davichi. She got her fame instantly after her debut, in which her fashion sense was at the center of attention. Tall and slender, long brown hair, white skin and her hip line made a lot of Korean girls jealous.
