I’ve never been a big fan of the Korean hanbok but over the years have come to appreciate the look more and more. I think the hanbok look in K-dramas are also evolving, I first noticed it in Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love when the fashion took center stage and the fabric, cuts, and color combinations were vividly beautiful. Since then sageuk dramas and movies have really upped its game when it comes to hanbok fashion, and I expect nothing less than goddess level wear on Lee Young Ae for 2016 SBS drama Saimdang: The Herstory.
I mention Lee Young Ae because she’s really the standard bearer for K-actresses when it comes to hanbok aura, and in this 1st Look pictorial featuring Suzy in connection with her sageuk movie The Sound of a Flower, the young idol-actress seems to be channeling Lee Young Ae in all the right associations. Suzy will be cross-dressing as a man most of the time in The Sound of a Flower, but as a young woman she’s certainly growing into her womanly looks with a welcome sheen of elegance.
