After a two-year hiatus, Korean actress Song Hye-kyo has made her long-anticipated return to the small screen with romantic drama Now, We Are Breaking Up. As its name suggests, the Korean show is centered on the themes of romantic love and heartache, set against a glitzy backdrop of the Korean fashion industry. The Hallyu star and Fendi’s global ambassador assume the role of a career-driven designer and team leader at a luxury fashion label.
The melodrama might be buzzing with trendy fashion pieces and jewellery envy, but there’s also plenty of design inspiration to be gleaned from the characters’ homes and offices. Here, we cover all the design details of the drama that has been shown so far.
1. Ha Yeong-eun’s cosmopolitian abode
Ha Yeong-eun (Song) possesses not just a discerning taste for fashion, but also decor for her home. The luxurious centrally-located apartment in Seoul, boasts large floor-to-ceiling windows that frame a stunning view of the city’s skyline and Korea’s famous Han River.
Exuding sophisticated and modern elegance, the abode is furnished with top-of-the-line appliances ranging from Bang & Olufsen speakers to Samsung refrigerators and TV. Ingo Maurer lighting offers a warm glow and a decorative touch to the apartment. Ha apparently uses china from Royal Albert, as proclaimed by an impressed Seok Do-hoon (Kim Joo-Hun) when he pays her a visit with the other casts.
