We’re still not over A World of Married Couple finally coming to an end; the show, after all, had been a rollercoaster of emotions since the very beginning. Its viewership soared to greater heights with each and every episode, with the finale ultimately achieving the highest ratings in cable network history!
So in an effort to soothe our aching fangirl hearts, we decided to pay tribute to a part of the show that we are also obsessed with: the fashion! We’ve already rounded up all the designer bags of leading lady Dr. Ji (Kim Hee Ae), so this time, we’re putting the spotlight on the show’s other powerful woman, Yeo Da Kyung (Han So Hee).
As opposed to Dr. Ji’s large, work-friendly handbags that often had long top handles, Da Kyung’s fave arm candy are small and compact, as she is always on the go and only likes to carry her essentials (like that controversial lip balm, LOL). Her pieces also feature either chain straps or striking metallic details that almost act like accessories for her outfit—a perfect solution for girls who aren’t into loud jewelry like her.
Given her easygoing, minimalist style, she prefers her bags to blend in with her outfit rather than stand out. But that isn’t to say her bags aren’t items to feast on—quite the contrary! Here, we’ve rounded up six of Da Kyung’s beautiful designer bags that we can’t stop thinking about:
Michael Kors Cece Medium Quilted Leather Convertible Shoulder Bag

We didn't see much of Da Kyung in Episode 1, so it was only in Episode 2 that we got to see what her personal style is like, which eventually transformed once she became Tae Oh’s wife. Prior to that, though, she dressed in casual clothes elevated with her designer handbags, like the Cece bag from Michael Kors that comes in a rich brown hue, chevron-quilted cover, and gold hardware. It also comes with an easy-to-use push-lock closure to keep all her secrets.

In case you haven’t noticed, Da Kyung loves wearing monochromatic ensembles in light colors, especially white! In episode 8, she completed her look with another Michael Kors Cece crossbody bag—this time around, in a fresh white iteration. It features a foldover silhouette, a handy detachable crossbody strap, and a chain top handle that’s perfect for Da Kyung’s many evening affairs.

Remember Episode 9 when Da Kyung couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off with her husband Tae Oh? Oh, and when Sun Woo satisfyingly told her that he was stalking her? Well, one item that kind of made things easier for Da Kyung that day was Mulberry’s Small Iris, a versatile little black bag with a spacious body covered by studs in a diamond pattern and topped with a braided leather handle.
Longchamp Cavalcade Crossbody Bag XS
Cavalcade Crossbody Bag XS, £300 (approximately P18,582.28), LONGCHAMP, longchamp.com
Episode 13 was one grueling hour with Dr. Ji in distress due to Joon Young’s fight with classmate Hae Kang. Da Kyung meddled with the issue and stepped in to save the day. At that moment, her armor of choice was a houndstooth jacket, high heels, and Longchamp’s itsy bitsy Cavalcade crossbody in crocodile-style cowhide leather that features subtle, rock ‘n’ roll rivets and a patina finish.
Valentino Garavani Rockstud Smooth Calfskin Crossbody Bag
Rockstud Smooth Calfskin Crossbody Bag, $2785 (approximately P141,409.77), VALENTINO, valentino.com
Episode 14 probably had you clenching your teeth in annoyance because of Da Kyung breathing down Joon Young’s neck. Well, her family life was getting rocky and she didn’t want to admit it. It was ironic that one of her designer bags in this episode was Valentino’s Rockstud in moody black, rimmed with those iconic, golden square studs. Once again, this piece comes with both a top handle and a crossbody strap that makes it a practical everyday bag.
Bulgari Serpenti Diamond Blast
Serpenti Diamond Blast, HK$26,400 (approximately P172,943.03), BULGARI, bulgari.com
Although this bag made its debut early on in the show (Episode 3), we wanted to save it for last because of how momentous the scene was. Remember when Da Kyung and Dr. Ji bumped into each other at the bookstore? Dr. Ji stared at Da Kyung’s handbag (probably wondering if Tae Oh purchased it), and that bag was none other than Bulgari’s Serpenti Diamond Blast. This ruby red stunner features a soft matelassé pattern inspired by the facets of diamonds and the iconic (and ironic) snakehead closure that’s emblematic of the brand’s Serpenti motif—it has black onyx eyes for serious staredown moments like this.
