As we look back at some of the most fashionable dramas, it is impossible to forget Mystic Pop-Up Bar, the underrated K-drama, which consisted of 12 shows, deserved so much more attention than it got, not just because of the beautiful cast, the spectacular storyline, life lessons, and outstanding production but also the amazing fashion.

 

If you haven’t seen this 2020 show yet, the plot circles around the 'Mystic Pop-Up Bar', known as 'pojangmacha', a small, outdoor tented bar/restaurant where people can hang out for street food and alcohol. In the show though, one simply doesn't go into the bar and leave like a regular person—somehow, they leave the mysterious food cart with grudges settled, as if with a new lease on life. The magic behind the bar lies in the show's lead actors, led by Hwang Jung-eum (of She Was Pretty fame) who plays Weol-joo, Choi Won-young (of Sky Castle fame) as Chief Gwi, and Yook Sungjae (of Goblin fame) as Han Kang-bae. 

 

In the show, Hwang Jung-eum plays a 500-year old dead lady who helps regular people heal their inner wounds by visiting them in their dreams. The actress manages to slay each and every traditional Korean garb and modern-day chic separates with equal conviction, along with flawless makeup. 

 

While her glam always speaks to the Old Hollywood glamour look, her fashion is rooted deep in Korean history. The actress manages to show different variations and colours of the hanbok, as she runs a mysterious pojangmacha (outdoor drinking establishment) and goes on different adventures in the afterlife.
