10 Characters you're guaranteed to see in every K-drama
Ever feel like some of your K-dramas are a lot like some of your other K-dramas, but you can’t quite put your finger on why? Well, to help you chart your sense of déjà vu like some sort of epistemic “Where’s Waldo,” here are the 10 characters you will see in every Korean drama EVER! 1) The shy girl that guys can’t resist She rarely says a word that isn’t an apologetic “sorry” followed by an embarrassed bow, but apparently, just her eyes are enough to drive all the men insane. 2) The rich jerk with a heart of gold There won’t necessarily be too many times where he’s tolerable, but he will do such nice things for our lady that you can’t help but fall in love with him. 3) The celebrities that are everywhere And it’s not the least bit strange that internationally recognized idols of music or film have nothing better to do than hang out with apparent nobodies all the time. 4) The mother that owns you As an Asian male, I can attest that no matter how old we get, no matter how much money we earn, no matter how independent we seem—our mothers rule our lives. 5) The unlucky-in-love sidekick She’s charming, she’s kind, and she’s often just as pretty as our lead lady, but this girl is there to repeatedly get her heart broken and to share those sad moments with our considerably more fortunate lead. 6) The nice guy that doesn’t get the girl Unfortunately, the rich jerk is the one that rides off into the sunset with the lady. This guy, whether he is the goof that makes our lady laugh or the angry but loving friend, he’s just not going to get the girl. 7) The arrogant beauty queen She knows she’s beautiful and she makes sure you know it. Unfortunately for her, our lovely lead is nicer and almost always gets the guy. 8) The distant, angry young man Almost like the Kdrama equivalent of an anime drifter, this angry young man does not seem to enjoy life and pretty much exits whenever he gets the chance. 9) The evil old guy Sometimes a henchman of the aforementioned mother, or even the father, this company executive/dastardly villain/crime leader will try to take our lead’s life in an accident. Usually, though, he’ll just give the hero amnesia. 10) The Traveler They always have to leave before the end of the show, exiting just in time to create the perfect teary-eyed goodbye (or, you know, just so they don’t disturb our existing love angles). So what other K-drama characters do you keep coming across? And have you found that mystical unicorn that doesn’t exist in K-dramas—a guy who isn’t that good-looking?
SNSD's Expensive Outfits in "Lion Heart" MV
Source: Soompi What did you guys think of Girls’ Generation’s “Lion Heart” MV? Although it is not the best song ever, the tune was catchy enough. Take a look into the fashion! From Versace to Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana to Valentino, pretty much all the heavy-hitting designers were enlisted for this video. In the first dance scene, every member wore an outfit from Versace’s RTW Spring 2015 collection. This was a nice choice because there’s a lot of pink in that collection and the complementing designs tie in everyone visually. YoonA in Versace Greca Key Illusion Dress, on sale for $1,040. Next, Seohyun in Versace optical chain print shift dress, on sale for $697 and Tiffany in Versace contrast stripe dress, on sale for $743 Sooyoung in Versace silk cropped trousers, $775, and sleeveless crop top, $850 (sold out) Yuri in Versace Greca key miniskirt, on sale for $299, and sleeveless crop top, $850 (sold out) Sunny in Versace chain printed techno duchesse dress, on sale for $1,405 For the date scenes, some members wore dresses from the Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2015 collection. The oversized rose print, combined with classic waves and eye-catching earrings, make the perfect looks for a romantic date! Seohyun in Dolce and Gabbana rose print fitted dress, $2,945 Sooyoung in Dolce and Gabbana floral-printed silk chiffon blouse, $1,245, and printed pencil skirt, $559 Taeyeon in Dolce and Gabbana “Majolica” print dress, $1,995 YoonA in Dolce and Gabbana embroidered floral lace dress, $2,737 It wasn’t all Versace and Dolce and Gabbana, though. Some members turned to different high-end designers! Hyoyeon in Valentino “Primavera” print dress, $7,900 Sunny in Valentino crepe couture and heavy lace dress, $4,290 Sooyoung in Gucci zig-zag print lurex dress, $5,800. (You may remember that Jun Ji Hyun wore an evening gown with the same fabric to the Cannes gala earlier this year.) Tiffany in Gucci RTW Fall 2015 YoonA in Chloe wool crepe trousers, $1,167, and Chloe silk blouse, $953 Even though we didn’t feature all the outfits in the video, the looks we did cover here come out to approximately $44,000. However, it seems safe to guess that SM Entertainment did not actually have to buy any of these outfits — we all know that borrowing is the name of the game when it comes to designers and celebrities. What did you think of the looks in this video? Let me know ^^
