SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODE 5

Lee Seon Jae – A shy man or a piano prodigy with Asparger syndrome? You who have known me for some time now already know that when I start obsessing over something my obsession reaches epic proportions. Well, to say I’ve been obssesing over SLA would be the understatement of the century. The level of […]

SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODES 3 & 4

Episode 3 is a pure OTP PERFECTION! I’m simply in awe of the way each episode keeps slowly building up the tension and attraction between SJ and HW as it feels like an intimate crescendo that will culminate in a dazzling climax. What is not to love about a show that starts with its male lead kneeling […]

SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODE 1 & 2

JTBC’s newest Mon-Tue drama has premiered two weeks ago and Nate has been abuzz with it ever since, with SLA being 1.- 5. most searched each day (a huge success for a cable drama). Well, one thing is certain – Yoo Ah In, the noona killer, is back with vengeance as he banishes all my doubts […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – LEE SOON EDITION PART 9

12) THE BLUE HUNTING ROBE The Blue Hunting Robe might just be my favourite among Lee Soon’s vast collection of yungbok (융복) which is the attire we have seen LS wearing for sparring, hunting or shooting already many times.  Just as the gugunbok yungbok was worn for diplomatic trips and in wartimes but also by officials for their military exams or the […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – FOOTWEAR SPECIAL PART 1 – SOCKS

BEOSEON (버선, socks) Beoseon was called the pair of the Korean traditional socks worn with hanbok for protection, warmth, and style. They are also called jokui (족의), jokgeon (족건) or mal (말) and according to a book Hunmong jahoe written by Choe Sejin in 1527, beoseon was called bosyeonmal (보션말). The exact date when beoseon first began to be worn isn’t known, however, the ancient beoseon is assumed to be a form extended from baji (trousers) or bojagi (보자기, wrapping […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – LEE SOON EDITION PART 8

11) THE FIREFLY HANBOK The Firefly Hanbok belongs to my favourite attires worn by Yoo Ah In in the entire drama and it isn’t only because of all the amazing OTP moments. When his mother decides to marry him off she comes up with the idea of a fated meeting and when the first opportunity fails there is always […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – LEE SOON EDITION PART 7

9) THE RED HUNTING ROBE For his undercover hunting mission Lee Soon dons an elegant yungbok (융복, a type of military uniform) that consists of a red cheollik (an overcoat) decorated by a dongjeong (white collar strip).  The upper garment has the typical pleated and slitted skirt that enhances the movement and flexibility. Under it LS wears a contrasting blue jungchimak (a shorter overcoat) and white jeogori. The sleeves […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – THE JOSEON LINGERIE & UNDERWEAR SPECIAL EDITION PART 1

 Every aspect of the life in Joseon used to be governed by the ideals of the Confucianism and that applied also to the designs of underclothes. The undergarments worn during that time and today with hanbok belong therefore without a doubt among the most sophisticated underwear in the world. The general term used for undergarments regardless […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – LEE SOON EDITION PART 3 – GUGUNBOK

5) THE BLUE MILITARY UNIFORM – THE GUGUNBOK We saw LS wearing this getup during his trips outside of the palace, one of them being his visit to the infamous MH’s coup d’état birthday party.  The whole attire such as it’s shown is called a gugunbok and originally used to be the inner garment of a suit of armor worn by a monarch and […]
