We said it before and we’ll say it again: Seo Ye Ji, who plays Ko Mun-yeong in It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, is the most fashionable K-drama leading lady right now. No other character from ongoing dramas can hold a candle to her unique sartorial taste, often showcased in the form of exaggerated silhouettes and statement jewelry. Her OOTDs in the first four episodes of IOTNBO were more than enough proof for us to make this claim, but we have to say, her latest look in Episode 5 is further fanning the flames!
In last night’s episode, Ko Mun-yeong pays a visit to OK Psychiatric Hospital for a meeting with Dr. O Ji-wang. She walks into his office clad in a monochromatic ensemble courtesy of Peter Do, a New York-based, Vietnamese-born designer who has been steadily gaining traction in the international fashion scene for his ultra-clean tailoring—an expertise he was no doubt able to showcase in this episode via Ko Mun-yeong’s pleated asymmetric crepe top and bolero-style jacket with padded shoulders and detachable belt. She then finished off her designer look with a pair of Gianvito Rossi sandals with gold chain ankle straps, plus a no-nonsense Dior Saddle bag.
See the exact designer items she wore below:
Cropped Belted Cady Jacket, $1640 (approximately P81,245), PETER DO, net-a-porter.com
Pleated Asymmetric Ribbed-Knit and Crepe Top, $1124 (approximately P55,682), PETER DO, net-a-porter.com
Saddle Bag in Gray Oblique Embroidered Denim, $3700 (approximately P183,298), DIOR, dior.com
Debbie Sandals, $1295 (approximately P64,154), GIANVITO ROSSI, gianvitorossi.com
All in all, her designer OOTD for this episode amounts to a whopping $7759! That’s approximately P384,380 in Philippine peso, FYI. This children’s book author sure is loaded—and super chic, obviously.
