Synonymous to their fashionable characters on screen, these Korean actresses are also impeccably stylish in real life. We all know that Korean fashion is elegantly understated—celebrities (sans K-Pop stars) gravitate towards classic and simple silhouettes, muted colors, and sophisticated beauty looks. So one accessory they tote to give their simple outfit a much needed pop is a statement handbag. And this latest release from Alexander McQueen seems to be new favorite of these leading ladies!
The Story Shoulder, a bigger and roomier version of its predecessor The Story handbag, is a functional leather accessory with a distinct metal handle and exquisite gold chain. The style also comes in a version with a knotted leather trim on its flap—which we think is the cooler choice among the two, TBH!

The bag was introduced almost simultaneously as the announcement of Jun Ji Hyun as the luxury label’s first Korean ambassador. So it comes as no surprise that it has also become a must-have accessory of World of Married Couple's Kim Hee Ae. If you recall, the WOMC star wore Alexander McQueen to the 56th Baeksang awads this year, too, and accepted her best actress award in a cotton candy pink assymmetrical shoulder column dress. Both Hee Ae and Ji Hyun favored the black version with the special twisted leather detailing at the front.
Actress Ki Eun See (who recently made a cameo in hit medical drama Hospital Playlist) has also been spotted with the Story Shoulder, as well as Lee Min Jung of Boys Over Flowers. Both actresses opted for the plain white leather version of the bag for the fresh OOTDs.
