The 23-year old actress looked like there was something missing in her outfit. Upon her arrival, she was seen wearing an oversized knitted off-white shirt together with her crocodile snake skinned bag and a black and white calf-length cowboy boots.

Knowing and seeing past photos of her airport outfits, this look was one of the not-so-good airport fashions.

Or she should have gone with just plain, black skinny jeans

Busker Busker’s “Love, At First” is an Honest First

Busker Busker, the three-member band that took the South Korean music world by storm, has finally returned with their second album. The title track is “Love, At First” and the MV is a serious affair featuring model Son Soo-hyun.

It would seem that the skeptics had nothing to worry about, Busker Busker has still got it – whatever “it” is.

Where “Cherry Blossom Ending” was cheerful and humorous “Love, At First” is heart-wrenching and poignant. They are each powerful in their own ways; in terms of sound, the title track here is closer to Busker Busker offerings like “If You Really Love Me”
