All The Converse Sneakers Kim Go Eun Wore In "The King: Eternal Monarch" So Far

Your go-to canvas sneakers happen to be her favorite, too!

We’re only a few episodes into our current K-drama obsession, The King: Eternal Monarch, and we’ve already gotten a taste of Kim Go Eun’s personal style as Detective Jeong Tae Eul. You may recall her fabulous first outfit in Episode 1 (how divine was that fur coat?), but that turned out to be just a stakeout disguise. Tae Eul’s true aesthetic is more laidback and androgynous. Although she dresses for comfort, you can tell that she’s got an affinity for streetwear, as evidenced by her uniform of hoodies, jeans, and simple coats.

Another key element of Tae Eul’s style? Her cool sneakers! And so far, she has only been wearing one brand: Converse! Yup, Tae Eul can’t get enough of this classic brand, and it’s not hard to see why. Putting on a pair of canvas Converse sneakers instantly adds an old school touch to any look, and perhaps this retro flair is an indication of Tae Eul’s future outfits. We can’t wait to see how her style evolves throughout the show! In the meantime, here are all the Converse pairs she has worn so far and how she has styled them:

Since we spotted Detective Tae Eul’s yellow high-cut sneakers in Episode 1, we couldn’t stop thinking about them—it has to do with the interesting color choice. White and black may be safe footwear colorways, but Tae Eul’s marigold sneaks are practically a neutral pair in themselves. The almost-mustard hue can work well with anything, from black and white to dark “neutrals” like camo green and navy blue. 

Tae Eul and Lee Gon are practically matchy-matchy in shades of yellow and beige.

These sneakers made their debut in the first episode when Tae Eul wore a trench coat with a brown and black checkered print, khaki pants, and a dark sweater. In Episode 3, Tae Eul went for a lighter color scheme with cuffed blue jeans, a beige zip-up sweater, and a yellow plaid button-down, as seen above.

2. Low Top Chuck 70 in Parchment

(Warning: Spoiler ahead!) Remember the scene in the second episode when Lee Gon dropped a bomb on Tae Eul by endeavoring to make her his wife? Well, Tae Eul was also wearing Converse sneakers that day—and we bet it provided her comfort considering all the jarring things she’s been faced with since Lee Gon set foot in her world. She paired her off-white-hued shoes with a brown coat, a striped hoodie, and dark wash jeans. We noticed her jeans had two slits at the bottom to reveal her low-cut sneakers. 

3. Chuck 70 in Black

Perhaps as a nod to the Alice in Wonderland allusion that was made in Episode 1, Tae Eul walks around the park in Episode 4 eating a carrot (remember how her parallel self, Luna, wore a black bunny hoodie?). In this scene, she’s wearing a tartan jacket, straight-cut jeans, and a beige scarf—a light-toned outfit contrasted with dramatic black Converse sneakers. We guess grunge-inspired prints like plaid, checkered, and tartan are her fave, and they feel right at home with any pair of Converse sneakers!

(Note: Her jeans covered her sneakers so much that we couldn’t tell if they were high tops or low tops, but Tae Eul would style them just the same.)

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
