Happy birthday, Ko Mun-yeong! If you’re up to date on everyone’s new K-drama obsession a.k.a. It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, then you’re fully aware that our favorite leading lady played by Seo Ye Ji has just turned a year older in the show. And in the spirit of always being extra, naturally, we expected her birthday outfit to blow us away for the nth time! And that, she most certainly did.
In Episode 10, we see Ko Mun-yeong clad in a little black dress—albeit it’s not your average LBD, mind you. Her pick, from the Italian fashion brand MSGM, features an ovoid silhouette that she usually tends to favor and a V-neck punctuated by an oversized statement-making bow. Dangling on her arm is an inimitable black Dior Saddle bag. And to add a pop of color to her otherwise all-black birthday OOTD, Ko Mun-yeong finishes off her look with a pair of pointy-toed pink mules from Christian Louboutin.
Check out the exact designer items she wore below:
Mini Saddle Bag in Black Grained Calfskin, $2700 (approximately P133,285), DIOR, dior.com
Planet Choc Embellished Mule, $775 (approximately P38,257), CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, nordstrom.com
Bow Tafetta Midi Dress in Black, $537 (approximately P26,509), MSGM, farfetch.com
We know you’re curious so we did the math for you. All in all, her birthday look costs about two hundred thousand pesos, give or take. And before you say that’s too much for just one whole outfit, need we remind you of her pambahay lewk that’s worth P250,000? Or her convenience store OOTD that literally amounts to almost a million pesos? Ko Mun-yeong is always clad in designer threads, and we’re here for it!
