Kim Ji-won's talent, bright smile, and angelic features are more than enough to land her the most sought-after roles in modern-day Korean dramas but have you seen the actress off-screen? Tatler sums up her most adorable looks as seen online
Hallyu star Kim Ji-won must really have it all—the highly-respected personality knows how to sing, project herself in front of cameras, and act together with her veteran show business colleagues. At the onset of her career, she became known as the "Oran C Girl" after she starred in a remarkable orange juice commercial.
In 2013, Ji-won has finally landed roles that have catapulted her to the fame she enjoys today. She starred in the KBS drama special Waiting for Love and co-starred in the highly-acclaimed teen drama The Heirs. From then on, the actress' acting career has been unstoppable. In 2015, she joined the romance web series One Sunny Day and made a cameo appearance in TVN Hidden Identity as Kim Bum's partner.
In 2014, the star was seen in the crime thriller Gap-dong as a high school student and a talented webtoon designer; the same year, she landed a supporting role in the KBS drama special The Reason I'm Getting Married. One of her biggest breaks happened in 2016 when she played an army surgeon role in the Descendants of the Sun (DOTS); the said drama was loved by viewers across Asia, giving Ji-won a bigger fanbase.
Ji-won has hosted the year-end KBS Drama Awards with Park Bo-gum and Jun Hyun-moo, where she won the coveted Excellence Award. Her other notable recognitions include APAN Star Awards 2016 Best Supporting Actress and SBS New Star Award 2013.
Her repeated onscreen appearances make her fans wonder how she looks off the studio and away from her fans. In this article, Tatler has listed her most iconic looks online!
When it comes to dressing up, many people think that wearing muted colours such as grey is a risky move. This is because the colour is something that would not stand out especially in a place where the majority wears bright and blinding hues of clothing.
But in her Instagram post, Ji-won is seen wearing two different shades of grey. The actress was able to pull off the outfit by wearing a lighter shade of grey on top, and a darker shade of grey at the bottom.
What's a trip to the beach without your favourite sundress? In this Instagram post, Ji-won was seen wearing a printed teal maxi dress paired with a small straw hat. The combination is easy on the eye and even blends well with the natural colour of the sea.

Because of her numerous series, Ji-won has gotten used to attending a number of awards and premiere nights. In one formal event, she was seen wearing a belted black maxi dress paired with see-through sleeves and stilettos.
Ji-won's humble personality reflects in her choice of clothes; when the actress is not on set, she usually wears a pair of printed shirt, jeans, and a jacket. This outfit is very easy to pull off; the whole fit does not require so much time and effort and can blend well in public places that do not require smart casual clothing.
At nighttime or formal events, the actress transforms into a sophisticated lady who has all her stuff together. Take a look at this Instagram post where she donned a white over black body con gown paired with a thin, brown belt that neutralised the colours of her whole attire.
A Happy Colour
Fuzzy sweaters have never been this cute! If you have reached this far then you probably know that Ji-won loves to wear colours that are neutral or easy on the eyes. But the actress knows how to dress in bright colours too. Just take a good look at this yellow top.
Tatler trivia: The colour yellow is associated with happiness, freedom, optimism, and mental concentration. Studies show that wearing shades of yellow can boost one's mood and alertness.
