Seo Ye Ji’s character in It’s Okay to Not Be Okay Ko Mun Yeong might be rude and exasperating at times (you’ll understand why when you watch the show — which you should if you haven’t yet!), but no can deny that her sense of fashion is simply impeccable (and quite expensive). She’s just inviting us to raid her wardrobe. In celebration of the last two episodes this weekend, we narrowed down her best looks on the show. Tell us if you agree or not.
Rich and chic chaebol
This suit dress is what Ko Mun Yeong was wearing on one of the show’s promotional posters. She wore it at a fan signing event in Episode 2, which was when her male lead Gang Tae first taught her how to calm herself down. Her ensemble — a double-breasted suit dress partnered with knee-high socks, high heels and gold dangling earrings — just oozes that aura of a rich and chic chaebol who doesn’t give a damn about consequences (which she certainly didn’t then). If you want to capture the effortlessly chic look, you can get a similar trench dress by Krizia for Php 1,899.
It was a short scene featuring a quick meeting with the hospital director in Episode 5, but Ko Mun Yeong looks like she’s about to strut down the runway in this dress and jacket combo in earthy colors. The “dress” is actually a pleated top from Peter Do, but since she’s got the legs, she’s showing them off. The whole ensemble costs about Php 400,000 and just called me poor. Thankfully, you can get a similar runway-ready look at a much more reasonable price point, such as this metallic pleated midi dress by Warehouse, which goes for Php 5,645.
Ko Mun Yeong looks like she could be part of the British royal family in this elegant outfit. The polka dot dress from Magda Butrym paired with the cream beret-like fascinator and gold earrings from Subyul completed the modern royalty look. Plus, this was the exact outfit she wore when she was shouting about her love at Gang Tae. Capture that modern royalty look with this dainty fascinator, which costs just Php 1,565.
Pretty in pink
Ko Mun Yeong showed off her teeny-tiny waist in this pretty pink two-piece from Minjukim, who won Netflix’s Next in Fashion award. Emphasis on ᵗᶦᶦᶦⁿʸʸʸ to the point that the Internet lost it after Episode 3 aired. Capture that pretty in pink look with these ruffled coords, from Juanita the Label, which retail for Php 2,200.
After a dramatic encounter with her mentally disabled father, Ko Mun Yeong was a literal damsel in distress roaming the streets in the rain. But she did it in style in this white embroidered frock from Zimmermann and gold hoop earrings. Want to copy her distressed-but-out-to-impress look? Get this eyelet button-up dress with puffed sleeves from Pomelo for Php 2,149.
Comfy for the outdoors
It’s rare to see her in pants, but Ko Mun Yeong rocked this ruffled shirt and pants combo paired with platform sneakers in Episode 9. The ruffled sleeve patterned shirt and Move platform sneakers are from Kenzo, while the pair of high-waisted ruffled pants is from YCH. It’s the perfect outfit for an outdoor date — comfy but still fasyown. To get that put-together yet comfy look, put on a pair of structured trousers, like these long pants from Zalora Work that cost Php 1,459.
The family portrait dress
We love this one for its simplicity. And the fact that we know Ko Mun Yeong associates it with good memories. We just don’t like the price, which, if everything from the Prada dress to all the accessories are included, amounts to USD 79,360 (approximately Php 4.1 million). You can nail that romantic modern-day princess look with this puffed sleeve babydoll dress from Pomelo at just Php 2,149.
A princess off to battle
Bright and attention-grabbing — Ko Mun Yeong seemed to have worn this ruffled dress in magenta as an armor before facing her demon. The dress by Alexander McQueen was paired with a double buckle belt from the same brand and a pair of sandals from Aquazzura. To get that warrior princess look, start with this waist belt from H&M, which costs Php 1,190.
