Oftentimes in the fashion scene, underrated superbrands can survive without having to ride on mainstream popularity. Instead, they are able to achieve success in their own discreet ways. One such brand is Gentle Monster, a giant sunglasses brand hailing from South Korea. It may not be as ubiquitous as other luxury brands, but it boasts of an impressive portfolio nonetheless.

To wit, the brand offers well-made sunnies that range from classic designs to avant garde pieces that have garnered an A-list following, including Beyonce, Rihanna, and Gigi Hadid. Plus, the brand has collaborated with super cool names like Alexander Wang, Tilda Swinton, and Opening Ceremony.

If you’re a K-drama fanatic, then you’ve probably seen this brand before without you knowing it! Gentle Monster has long been one of the go-to sunnies brands in TV shows, worn by your favorite Korean celebrities. Here are some we’ve spotted so far. Given how flattering they look on these celebs, we wouldn’t blame you if you'd want to cop your own pair, too!

Cat-eye frames are often associated with a sense of empowered femininity, which definitely suits Seo Ji-Hye’s character, Seo Dan. Here, she matches a romantic pussybow blouse with sleek cat-eye shades that may shield her skin from UV rays but don’t conceal her powerful emotions.
