Here's a little quick find from Girl's Generation Sooyoung
They've just dropped their Japanese "The Best" album and this looks to be from their promotional looks.
This Instagram update shows Sooyoung in G.V.G.V trademark "Please kill me" Pink T-shirt. However I'm unable to find a working buylink for it.
Hey guys sorry for the long hiatus, I had exams and projects and all that good stuff.
Did you guys missed me? I missed you hehe.
Since I've been away I've gathered a bunch of finds and hopefully I'll begin to post them soon.
For the first find I have Sulli's adorable t-shirt from her newest Etude House CF. Did you see it? It's really cute. If you want you can check it here
Sulli is wearing the Eye print t-shirt from MSGM's Toiletpaper collection and guess what? It's 50% off and really affordable, so if you want it you better hurry.

For 100%'s comeback this month, they traded in their dark image from March for a cuter and brighter one. Let's see what some of them wore in their most recent music video, 'U Beauty'.


 
Chanyong wore the KKXX-TO-1046B from Stylenanda on top (buy here) and the CASH ONLY Stripe Crewneck from SNOB underneath (buy here). He seems to have black long sleeve shirt underneath the SNOB sweatshirt as well. Doesn't he feel hot wearing all those layers?

Recently I went to visit one of my friends (KS) who lives very close to Annandale, VA, which is a sort-of Koreatown situated in Northern Virginia. With her not having much experience with Korean food, we decided to go for a fare consisting of two popular Korean street food dishes, ddukbokki and kimbap. For those of you who may not know these dishes, ddukbokki is rice cakes in a chili sauce, and kimbap is rice rolls with different ingredients in them. kimbap is said to be "Korean sushi", although it doesn't usually contain fish. To start the meal, our waitress brought us a miso-type-soup and some sweet radishes. The kitchen prepared our meal very quickly, and so we were feasting on yummy ddukbokki and kimbap. Since KS was the Korean-food newbie, I had her review Red Holic based on three categories: the service, the atmosphere, and of course, the food:

"My experience at the restaurant Red Holic in Annandale, Virginia, was excellent. The prices were reasonable, and the large portion sizes made it easy and convenient for two people to split the platter. The atmosphere of Red Holic was comfortable and cultured, with small facts about Korean culture on the walls, and vibrant Korean music playing throughout our experience. The service at Red Holic was very professional and efficient. The server described the food options in detail, which was beneficial considering my vegetarian diet, and she answered my questions thoroughly. Our food was served in a timely manner; it took less than ten minutes to receive our dishes. My favorite food was the dukbokki: a blend of chili sauce, soft rice cakes, kimchi, fish cakes, and boiled eggs. I really enjoyed how the dukbokki was spicy and savory, and full of flavor. The portion size offered was filling, and it was a great lunch option. The kimbap was also flavorful and served as a hearty meal; it complemented the dukbokki dish well. I enjoyed dipping the kimbap into the chili sauce. After my great experience at Red Holic, I will definitely be going there again in the future!"


RATINGS:
Service: 5/5
Food: 5/5
Atmosphere: 4/5

During f(x)'s comeback stage on 140704 KBS2 Music Bank for their song 'Milk', they wore pieces from ARCHE's S/S 2014 collection. I can't find or make a good quality screencap of their performance, but their photocards from their Red Light album has them wearing the same clothes since the images were taken backstage.

Here is what their group photocard looks like:


Another thing I unfortunately can't do is copy and paste the images of the exact pieces the girls wore so you can check out the collection for yourself here.

Many Korean celebrities besides f(x) have been wearing this all too-familiar Grecian leaf print.

I always love seeing KPOP stars at international events. It shows how truly global hallyu is. Who better to represent S. Korea at one of the most popular fashion weeks then CL of 2NE1? CL's kind nature, style, and charisma has lead to many friendship within the fashion industry. The most famous is of course her long-term friendship with Jeremy Scott. However, this week she's proven that she's a hotshot in the biz. Let's take a look at some of what she's been up to.

Speaking of Karl Lagerfeld, the two posed for an Instagram picture as well: 
Let's see some other Instagram pictures from the festivities:


 CL seems like she's having a lot of fun. In the interviews that have been posted, she's been really nice to the paparazzi. Take a look:

There are also a ton of fan-edits and pictures of these events from different angles and different photographers. You can find them on fan Facebook pages, and the CL tag on Tumblr .

P.S. This post was just for fun. I think it's nice to see a crossover between Western and Eastern stars.

It's summer break where I'm from, and you know what that means... many kids are going to have free time on their hands to catch up on the TV-shows & movies saved in their bookmarks. 
In this edition of "If you like that, try this", I'm bringing you five American/ Korean pairs in which the shows are on Netflix. 

In a recent teaser image, Girls Day's Hyeri was shown basking in the sun in a piece from Wildfox Couture. The number nine crop top is not online anymore, but you can shop the rest of the Wildfox summer collection here.
