Six Fall Looks That Can Go From High-Fashion Pictorials To Real-Life

Six Fall Looks That Can Go From High-Fashion Pictorials To Real-Life

Park Shin Hye and Sung Joon for Mind Bridge. (Photo : Mind Bridge ) September is swiftly approaching, which means cooler weather in Korea. As the dog days of summer dwindle, the onslaught of gorgeous fall pictorials has begun. The September issue of fashion magazines is one of the most significant releases, which provides context for the star-powered covers of magazines like ELLE Korea.While runway fashion is seemingly unattainable for many people, fall pictorials often provide styles that can be worn in real-life.

Here are six fall looks that can seamlessly transition from high-fashion pictorials to real-life.

1. Park Shin Hye and Sung Joon provide a stylish take on the "couples" look.

The latest additions to the Fall/Winter line of Mind Bridge prove that the couples look popularized by Korea and Taiwan does not always mean matching t-shirts. Park Shin Hye pairs an oversized jacket with shorts and white shirt, providing an updated take on the trend of clothes that look like they were borrowed from a boyfriend"s closet.Sung Joon pairs simple cotton shirts with fitted blazers and slacks for style that transitions from the office to after hours, date looks.

2. Kim Woo Bin pairs patterned sneakers with a suited look.

3. Gong Hyo Jin proves that there is a place for bright colors in cool weather wardrobes.

Hyungsik continued, "I am happy these days to the point that I think how nice it"d be if she existed in real life. I am filming well while being happy through acting."

Uee May Prefer Sung Joon on 'High Society' But Will She Date Z:EA's Kwang Hee In Real Life

Uee May Prefer Sung Joon on 'High Society' But Will She Date Z:EA's Kwang Hee In Real Life

High Society

In the drama "High Society" Uee was the focus of an early love triangle with actor Sung Joon and Z:EA member Park Hyung Sik, but on the variety show "Infinity Challenge," she"s being linked with another Z:EA member Kwang Hee.

There"s a lot of shipping going on here but Uee wants to set the record straight. She"s pretty straightforward when it comes to her dating preferences. And she has no intention of dating in secret. She has already been honest about her "High Society" preferences. When she was asked which "High Society" co-star she liked best, she said it was Sung Joon.

When she and Kwang Hee were matched up on a blind date for Infinity Challenge, it was a dream come true for Kwang Hee as he previously called After School"s Uee his ideal type. He said she was the prettiest idol. But that does not mean she feels the same way about him.

At a July 6 press conference for her drama, she was asked if Kwang Hee had shown up on the set. After all the drama does star his fellow Z:EA member and his ideal type. He had not.

"Kwang Hee has not come yet," she said. "I am receiving a ton of questions about Kwang Hee from the people around me."

If getting in touch with her is any indication, he does appear to be interested in pursuing a relationship.

"I get one text a day from him," she said.

But that"s about it and Uee promises to keep fans posted.

"If I end up dating Kwang Hee, I will reveal it through SNS. I will never date him in secret. I will give you notice. I will not hide the fact that I"m dating him. I think we have gotten a bit closer."

Then again, she already said some nice things about her co-star Sung Joon.

Sung Joon"s charm is that he makes his counterpart feel really comfortable. When I make NGs and feel terrible about it, he consoles me, telling me not to worry. He"s someone who makes you fall in love with him while acting."

He"s said some nice things about her. He said she had the nicest body of any co-star he ever worked with. He praised their chemistry.

"There are actors who can be touchy and almost aggressive when they work, but UEE doesn"t act like an actress. She"s more like a hyung. She makes it really comfortable. We"re even talking informally and we act well together."

So, which of these stars do you think Uee ought to date in real life?

Seoul School of Performing Arts: a K-Pop fangirl

Seoul School of Performing Arts: a K-Pop fangirl"s dream high school

You know you"re in your dream high school when you"re surrounded by K-Pop idols! Seoul School of Performing Arts (SOPA) is a high school that attracts many idols due to its focus on the arts. Let"s play a game of make-believe--if SOPA was an ordinary public school and you, a lucky fangirl, were to attend, which role would high school stereotypical role would each idol play?

Here are my guesses:

The football captain Kai

Aside from being a wizard with his dancing feet, Kai gives off the confident air of a cocksure jock. Plus, who wouldn"t have a crush on this cutie as he strides down the hallways like a football champ?

The cheerleaders Joy


SONAMOO"s Euijin

Rookies Red Velvet"s Joy, G-Friend, and SONAMOO"s Euijin would make perfect cheerleaders. With Joy"s constantly cheery disposition, G-FRIEND"s high-kicks, and Euijin"s twerks combined, these fresh girls would make kickass team.

The mascot Hyeri

Now that we"ve run through the athletes, who else would make a better mascot than mukbang queen Hyeri? With her killer aegyo and ability to consume all kinds of food in one bite, Hyeri will make the enemy both fall head over heels yet also cower in fear at the thought of being devoured Kirby-style.

The preps



A Pink  


Sehun, Sulli, A Pink members Hayoung, Na-Eun, and Namjoo, and Boyfriend members Kwangmin, Youngmin, and Minwoo all have one thing in common. They look like total preps.

While Sehun has a cool demeanor that makes him seem untouchable, Sulli and A Pink are all look like ladies that come from a refined background. Meanwhile, the Boyfriend members are cute as a trio of flowerboys who would definitely find success should they ever start a high school host club.

The band geeks Jonghyun and Juniel

CNBLUE"s Jonghyun and Juniel are both masters of the guitar. A duo that both comes from the band-music oriented agency FNC Entertainment, they would definitely be labeled as adorable "band geeks" for their love and skill for music.

The rebels BTS"s Jungkook

Lovelyz"s Yoo Ji Ae

BTS"s energetic Jungkook and Lovelyz"s spunky Yoo Ji Ae would grace the halls of a high school as the rebels who act as they please. Despite their cute appearance and sweet mannerisms, these two strong idols are definitely no pushovers and won"t take crap from anybody--whether from other students or from teachers.

Glee Club Lee Hi

B1A4"s Gongchan

Glee Clubs make high school a musical place. Vocally talented, Gongchan and Lee Hi would rule the school with their melodic voices.

Class clown TEEN TOP"s Ricky

A cutie and a total dork, TEEN TOP"s Ricky would be the kind of guy that brightens up the room and makes everyone around him smile at his quirky antics, making him perfect for the role of "class clown."

Teacher"s pet Suzy

Last but not least, we have the teacher"s pet--none other than miss A"s Suzy! With her goddess looks, heavenly smile, and angelic personality, Suzy has become the entertainment industry"s favorite. Seems like this girl was destined to be loved, so of course she would receive the same treatment anywhere she goes. 

Bonus: here"s a picture of the teacher"s pet with the school mascot.

What do you guys think? Do you agree with these roles?
