You may know this Chanel muse from her role as the bubbly Ji Eun-tak in the hit series, Goblin, but Kim Go-eun is more than meets the eye. Get to know the Korean star a little bit more through her adventurous and stunning fashion moments
This Korean actress has had a truly successful career despite just being 29-years-old. She's starred opposite some of the biggest names in Hallyu like Gong Yoo in the smash series Goblin, CF King Lee Min-ho, for the Netflix Original The King: Eternal Monarch, and Jung Hae-in in the swoon-worthy movie Tune in for Love.
Known for her dynamic roles and seemingly effortless acting on screen, Kim has become one of the most sought-after stars in the industry. She is also an ambassador for luxury house Chanel, having fronted the international The Faces campaign which includes Margot Robbie and Naomi Campbell for the J12 timepiece.
As a popular actress, Go-eun is no stranger to red carpets and press cons.
In this article, we list down 10 ways she's proved to be every bit the head turner with her chic fashion choices and styling.
Who run the world?
...girls! Go-eun styles her grey suit-dress with black stockings and matching pumps, topping it off with low-key silver jewellery. Looking like a certified lady boss, the actress slays in this minimalist look, showing us what the phrase 'less is more' truly means.
Ethereal in white
An all-white outfit may seem easy to pull off but it can be quite tricky - unless you're Kim Go-eun.
In the photo on the far left, she perfectly complements her structured dress with a beautiful sheer silver pump.
All-clad in Chanel in the middle photo, the drama star easily pulls-off this textured dress paired with classic pumps and a metal-strap sling bag; to add a bit of a twist (but not overpower the look), she sports the brand's statement drop earrings.
Lastly, on the far right, Go-eun shines yet again in what could be just a boring number. She skillfully pairs her textured A-line dress with minimalist rings, mismatched earrings, and iconic Jimmy Choo silver Lang sandals.
How she styles a monochromatic look
Black and white ensembles can get boring fast. But Go-eun shows us that all it takes is attention to detail to transform a look.
At a photocall with actor Lee Je-hoon, she pairs a white lace top with a structured black polka-dot skirt with sheer panelling - to add a bit of flair, she completes the outfit with red ankle-strap high heels. She takes a similar route at a press conference for Memories of the Sword, breaking the monotony of her white collared polo with a long jumpsuit and red strappy pumps.
It's in the jeans
Looking this fashionable in jeans has to be a crime! The actress pulls off different denim colours and cuts in equally stylish ways, proving that one's trusty pair of pants can go with any footwear too - boots, sandals, and pumps! A quick takeaway here: invest in quality blazers and jackets.
She's not afraid to don contrasting colours and textures
At a photocall in Paris just before the Chanel Spring/Summer haute couture runway, Go-eun was spotted in this bright-coloured dress which she matched with high heeled boots and a thick leather belt. To further accentuate the look, she sported a see-through pearl-strap purse from the brand.
For the Cheese in the Trap press con, the actress pulls off a see-through midnight blue blouse by pairing it with a textured bell skirt. Her choice of the gradient patent leather Louboutins may not be a go-to for most but it only shows off her unique fashion sense.
Nothing says effortlessly stylish like a nude-toned outfit. On four different occasions, the K-drama star is seen donning muted colours - all of which she pulls off seamlessly. Take a queue from Kim Go-eun the next time you wear nude shades. Pair it with white or colour-block with a statement purse/ shoe.
Discreet (yet uber stylish) tourist
Instagram is full of travel photos that elicit envy left and right... and these photos are no exception! Stroll around your favourite city in similar fits that combine comfort and style—jeans, a trusty long coat, your best sneakers and take it up a notch by bringing along a versatile designer purse.
Orange isn't always easy to pull-off, unless you're Kim Go-eun

Orange isn't a shade many people consider a wardrobe staple; it's a bold colour that can be tricky to match but worry not as Go-eun shows us how it's done.
At the press conference for Sunset in My Hometown, the actress complements her flowy ruffled dress with nude Stuart Weitzman heels. At another event (this time with Goblin leading man Gong Yoo), Go-eun made headlines with her burnt orange velvet number; she completed the look with satin, bejewelled heels and thin drop earrings.
Leading Lady 101
As a popular star, Go-eun is a staple at red carpets and awards ceremonies. Her formal wear choices reflect her brand of minimalist yet feminine fashion. Looking every bit the leading lady, the star shines in a sleek lilac gown, a sexy sheer black number, and even a delicate white piece. She keeps accessories to a minimum letting her couture do the talking.
There's nothing like a woman in a suit—powerful, elegant, and dressed for the gods. The actress looks fabulous in both black and teal coloured co-ords.
She switches up her hairstyle to match the look. For a sleek double-breasted coat, she opts for long straight tresses. On the right, she sports choppy bangs and a dishevelled long bob to match the ensemble's adventurously chic appeal.
