Ko Mun Yeong's Favorite Brand on "IOTNBO" Is the Winner of Netflix's "Next in Fashion"
Seo Ye Ji never fails to enthrall us on our current K-drama fave, It's Okay to Not Be Okay. She’s worn so many breathtaking outfits, and we all know how much she loves donning designer pieces from head to toe—so much so that even her pambahay looks are designer.
Well, amid the bevy of luxury brands she’s sported so far, it seems that her favorite is a local one who also hails from South Korea, and it’s none other than Minju Kim. Sounds familiar? Yup, we’re talking about Minju Kim, the winner of Netflix’s biggest fashion design competition, Next in Fashion.
Ko Mun-yeong's obsession with this brand comes as no surprise though, as Minju Kim’s designs are known for their whimsical, playful aesthetic that echoes the story books written by her character. Check out the four times she flaunted the fun brand on the show:
1. A dramatic puff sleeve blouse

Mun-yeong loves bold ensembles and is often seen wearing vibrant or deep hues. However, on her first day of her fairytale class, she opted to tone it down a little via softer colors. She chose MINJUKIM’s Puffy Sleeve Jacket in fresh beige that was still showstopping—just look at the volume on those modern leg-of-mutton sleeves! We love how she emphasized the top’s dramatic shape with a tan leather obi belt.
2. Pretty pink coords
Remember Episode 6 when our jaws simultaneously fell on the floor upon seeing Seo Ye Ji’s itty bitty waist? Well, she was wearing MINJUKIM during this unforgettable moment. The candy pink coordinates include a cropped buttoned blouse in subtle puff sleeves and a high-waisted pleated skirt that cinches the waist, making her appear svelte and lean. Mun-yeong is obviously making a case for how enduring the puff sleeve trend can be. (FYI, Alexa Chung wore this exact outfit earlier this year!)
3. Sheer tiered dress
Perhaps as a tongue-in-cheek nod to the female characters in her fairy tales, Mun-yeong donned a princessy pink frock from MINJUKIM as a nightgown, and honestly, it’s even better than those in story books. With tiers, billowy sleeves, and a pleated neckline, this MINJUKIM piece is the stuff of dreams.
4. Printed day dress

In Episode 9, we couldn’t help but laugh when Moon Gang-tae (Kim Soo Hyun) asked the fashown Mun-yeong to “dress normal” upon seeing her in a black and white dress with matching oversized brim hat. We also couldn’t help but marvel at how overtly chic and sophisticated this “vacation look” is. With a voluminous skirt, spaghetti straps, and an accent bow at the back, it’s practically every fashion girl’s ideal summer dress. Staying true to her bold extravagant style, Mun-yeong completed the look with Bvlgari diamond earrings and crystal-embellished Aquazurra heels.
At this rate, we wouldn't be surprised if Seo Ye Ji will be wearing more MINJUKIM outfits in the next episodes! The brand just perfectly matches her bold and playful style.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
