The World of the Married: Kim Hee ae’s ladylike style with a hint of fierce is just what we need in 2021
We are looking back at Kim Hee-ae aka Dr. Ji Sun-Woo’s elegant yet boss-lady style in The World of the Married.
In the peak of quarantine, came the popular K drama The World Of The Married in May 2020, which cured our boredom in more ways than one! The superb writing, the thrilling direction and phenomenal plot were enough to keep us hooked, but great fashion is what piqued our interest in the riveting show. The drama is nothing short of a rollercoaster of love and its heart-wrenching opposite. Korean actress Kim Hee-ae in the lead as Dr. Ji Sun-Woo, a doctor and a wife of a frivolous husband who is bound for a horrific discovery that will not only destroy but put a hold of her entire life. The show also acted as an avenue for Dr. Ji Sun-Woo’s undeniably daunting ensembles that we are absolutely besotted with.
The drama for one of many reasons is incredibly well thought out and leaves no detail unseen, down to the last details of the two main leads’ wardrobes. Dr. Ji Sun Woo’s (Kim Hee Ae) professional outfits and designer clothing reflect her image as a successful, smart, and independent woman who earned her career and possessions on her own. And Da Kyung’s (Han So Hee) neutral, simple and pastel-coloured outfits denote her youthfulness and sheltered life. As the story progresses the fans are sure to see a change in their looks.
The show puts the limelight on the 54-year-old actress, and how she carries her ladylike style with great confidence, a true indication that real style knows no age. With a perfectionist persona, we often see Dr. Ji in crisp and clean cuts, sleek silhouettes, and a slew of high fashion prints paired with equally striking bold choices of colour.
