I wouldn’t chalk up the lackluster ratings of sageuk drama A King’s Love to leading lady Yoona but for me she definitely didn’t help bolster more reasons to keep watching. She hasn’t dispelled the general opinion that she’s not suited for period dramas whether Korean sageuk or Chinese wuxia, her lanky modern feminine beauty makes her look easy to break onscreen and oftentimes the flowing period attire wears her rather than the other way around. But in the same vein she really pulls off modern wear when the outfit drapes beautifully rather than overly emphasizing her lithe frame. Her latest pictorial for Allure Korea contrasts three very different fall outfits – casual chic, trench coat cool and structured uniform edgy. I love it all and hope she finds a way to harness her best qualities rather than stretching beyond her comfort zone.
