Style Breakdown: ‘Oohlala Couple’ Kim Jung Eun

Posted: 10 Oct 2012 07:12 AM PDT

KBS 2TV's new drama ’Oohlala Couple‘ is off to a good start as its ratings already hit two-digits with the release of just three episodes. If I was to summarize the general plot in a few words, I would say it is a married couple edition of the movie ‘Freaky Friday‘. It deals with a mix of several different typical K-drama themes such as soul switching, power of fate, and infidelity. It’s a predictable drama that illustrates a serious social issue in a lighthearted manner by giving it a fantasy twist.

What we cannot label as ‘typical’ is the carefully crafted outfits of actress Kim Jung Eun. Kim Jung Eun, who plays the middle-aged housewife Na Yuh Ok, proved that housewives can look chic even while doing various chores in the house. So without further ado, let’s check out some of my favorite looks that Kim Jung Eun rocked in the drama ‘Oohlala Couple’.

In this scene, Kim Jung Eun is wearing a mustard-yellow round-neck knit with a light peach accent on the collar sleeves. The adorable round peach-colored collar gives an overall lovable look to the outfit. She matched the knit top with a unique two-tone pleated skirt. The ashy lilac and yellow-green color of the skirt tones down the bubbly knit top, making the outfit appropriate for Na Yuh Ok the housewife.

In this outfit, Kim Jung Eun is dressed in a grey, crew neck sweater as well as a grey, a-line pleated skirt accented with a wine-colored hem from Marc by Marc Jacobs 2012 F/W line. She is also accessorizing her top with a detachable collar in dark purple, completing the sophisticated and modern look. The burgundy accessories, such as the skinny belt and the watch, lighten up the grey outfit and are perfect for the upcoming fall weather. The next part of this outfit is my favorite: Marc by Marc Jacobs Irina from the 2012 F/W Collection!

The two-tone color of this bag really completes the chic, sophisticated aura of the whole outfit. The gold front flap enhances the classic look of the bag and also makes it casual and simple enough to pass as an everyday carry. This Marc by Marc Jacobs bag costs $498 and is made of 100% cow leather (credit: Marc by Marc Jacobs).

You have probably already guessed by now, but Na Yuh Ok has a very modern yet sophisticated style for a housewife in her mid-to-late thirties (I’m assuming). Most of her outfits are very simple and styled with long, pleated skirts. Subtle accents with various accessories and different ways of color-blocking add to her overall look. This outfit is of no exception as it mixes two simple pieces: a beige skirt and a white, square-neck blouse with ruffled shoulders. The overall outfit was kept very simple and elegant with a black belt giving the illusion of an hourglass figure.

=======

All in all, I am in love, in total awe, of Kim Jung Eun’s look in ‘Oohlala Couple’. It’s very sophisticated, chic, modern, and yet casual and comfortable. If you’re caught up with this newly released drama, then tell us which one of Na Yuh Ok’s outfit was your favorite. If you have yet to watch ‘Oohlala Couple’, I totally recommend the drama if you have a few extra moments to spare.
