DONNAPIE’S TOP 10 MOST FASHIONABLE ASIAN DRAMA CHARACTERS
ULTRA FINE AND DANDY AT NUMBER 5: Yoon Jihoo for BOYS OVER FLOWERS
In a throwback to the Edwardian and Victorian era when men are all innately gallant and gentlemanly, Yoon Ji Hoo’s way of dressing perfectly mirrors his refined pureness, subtle elegance and distinct class and superiority from the masses.
Whether he is dressed in a military jacket that almost seems as if it comes straight out of the nutcracker or whether he’s garbed in long tailed coats that are reminiscent of Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, it only takes one look at Jihoo to see that he comes from a lineage that reeks of good manners, impeccable breeding and old money.
Among a cast of 4 good looking men who dress flamboyantly and ostentatiously, Jihoo stands out for his understated and timeless sense of style. The kind that’s wearable and everyday but which still emanates the vibe and feel that he is no ordinary man as he is still a notch above the rest.
It’s not the fact that he’s always well groomed or that not a strand of his hair is out of place but rather it’s the way he carries those jackets and suits with perfection that highlights his ridiculous good looks even further.
He always looks like one of those cover boys that come straight out of the pages of GQ or Esquire or Bazaar or any high end glossy that pay tribute to hot, runway ready male boyfriend material that all girls would wish for in a partner.
There is a richness to Jihoo’s look that’s unexplainable, almost like a novel that eveytime you read you discover something new.
From the subtlety of his cardigan sweaters when he’s lounging around at home or the contrast of white chinos against his dark jackets that he pairs with checkered inner shirts, somehow looking at him feels extremely fresh and inspiring.
The kind that draws my eyes to him all the time in the hopes that somehow, some way his clothes materializes in my husbands closet or maybe if i’m really being honest, that he’d also materialize beside me in bed where he is wearing the best thing that i want to see him in.
Yeah right, you get a point if you guess NOTHING.
If there was one song that best describes Jihoo’s feelings for Jandi in Boys Over Flowers, i think this is it.
UGH. Why am i such a sucker for angst?
