I’m not surprised Song Hye Kyo‘s character’s outfits are hard trending in South Korea after two episodes of tvN Wed-Thurs drama Encounter. I was unexpectedly noticing all her clothes, shoes, and accessories as well when I was live watching. In particular, her red shirt dress by high end Korean brand AvouAvou is all the rage now when plenty of knock offs or similar looks available, it’s the dress that had the most screen time with her one night out in Cuba with male lead Park Bo Gum. It was feminine and striking, not to mention comfortable to stroll around Havana, and paired gorgeously with her slim sandals that needed to be retrieved. I’m still not a fan of her short bob but it’s a great visual cue for her character, the no-nonsense divorcee running a top boutique hotel. At times she looks resigned and defeated, but when she brightens up around Park Bo Gum then the short bob makes her look casually youthful. I’m keen on seeing what other fashion cues this drama sends out via Song Hye Kyo during the remainder of its run.
