Besides the storylines, fashion is also an important factor that contributes to the success of many Korean dramas released in 2021.
“Mine” is one of the dramas that gives the audience the clearest look on the Korean high society’s “unimaginable “ lifestyle. In addition to the backdrop, the characters’ fashion, especially the three female leads, are also visually pleasing to the viewers because it is no different from a million-dollar fashion show.
2. Penthouse 3
Despite facing criticism for the illogical and exaggerated plot in season 3, it is undeniable that “Penthouse” does not disappoint visual-wise, especially with the expensive outfits of the female characters.
3. Reflection of You
Starring two beautiful actresses, Go Hyun Jung and Shin Hyun Bin, and depicting the story of art and life of the rich, “Reflection of You” also impresses the audience with its fashion. The outfits in the drama are not too fussy, but elaborate and well-matched to the characters at times.
4. Youth Of May
Unlike the three dramas above, “Youth Of May” does not center on the stories of the elite, but goes back in time, set against the Gwangju Uprising in 1980. The retro outfits in the drama are not too fancy and flamboyant, yet successfully highlight the beauty of vintage fashion.
