Kdrama Inspired Looks (KIL)

Besides fashion, I am really into South Korean Dramas. South Korean dramas, or Kdramas, are Korean TV shows that are usually 16 to 24 episodes long at about an hour an episode. The stories can range from action to love stories with complex love triangles (my favorite). I tend to watch 10 to 15 hours a week of Kdramas which can sometimes interfere with my daily life. One thing that I have picked up from the dramas beside some of the language (hours of watching it will do that) is the fashion. I have noticed that South Korea has some of the cutest fashions and I draw most of my inspiration from their styles. Since I spend so much time watching Kdramas and trying to emulate some of the styles, I thought a great new weekly segment would revolve around my two favorite things: fashion and Kdramas.  A Recent drama I have fallen in love with is Dream High(드림하이). The lead role is played by Bae Suzy who wears some cute outfits throughout the drama. Here is an outfit I loved and how I would create a similar outfit.

Do you have any special interest that play a big part in your fashion choices?

Check out the list of dramas I have already watch and currently watching here.


  1. I have never watched any Kdrama films before, my twin brother is into anime and stuff so I'm sure he has watched a few! im def going to check out your LIST :)

    1. I have not been able to get into anime. Some of my favorite dramas are based off of mangas so I have read them, but I just can't watch the anime versions. Let me know what you think and if you want any suggestions.

  2. i loooove k drama! haha

  3. I really love when people talk about Korea, we tend to be treated like such underdogs but everything we have is truly amazing! I love K-Dramas so much of course, I never got around to seeing Dream High yet though, mostly been dramas about love and such. I think the look looks amazing, so cute! xx

    1. Thank you!! I put off watching dream high also but hit a snag in new dramas I wanted to watch and finally decided to watch, and I was not disappointed. It is one of those dramas that I finally got around to watching and after watching I can't figure out what took me so long LOL.
