Another year-end award show has come and gone, which means there are more red carpet looks to be seen. The actors and actresses of the Korean entertainment industry did not disappoint at this year’s Blue Dragon Film Awards. One surprising trend of the awards show, given the season, was the number of ladies attending in white gowns, and other pale neutrals. Nam Gyu-ri, Min Hyo-rin and Han Chae-young were wearing nearly identical dresses, with sweetheart-cut necklines, intricate detailing and slight trains. Min Hyo-rin’s sheer accent panel that plunges dramatically in the back sets her apart from the rest.
Kim Hye-soo, Jung Ryeo-won and Park Bo-young were some of the neutral-wearing standouts of the night. Veteran actress Kim Hye-soo is fashionable as always in a chic beige gown that drapes beautifully in front, showing of her collarbone while dipping low in back as well. A black belt cinches the waist, giving the actress a very flattering, figure-hugging look. A radiant Jung Ryeo-won wore a pale wrap dress that had very feminine ruffles that were more subtle than over-powering. She went very minimalist with her golden accessories and nude makeup; the soft wave of her pulled-back hair was a perfect fit. With a look that was both young and fresh, Park Bo-young’s short, lacy dress gave a nice change of pace from all of the long gowns. The puffy sleeves are a bit of a miss, but overall she looked lovely.
Adding a punch of color to the night were Kang Sora, Baek Jin-hee and Kim Ha-neul. The vibrant teal, off-the-shoulder dress worn by Kang Sora fits the actress nicely, but overall it still seems lacking. A more interesting clutch, or some chandelier earrings could have taken this ensemble to the next level. High Kick 3‘s is the personification of “Pretty in Pink” in her sweet cocktail dress. Best Actress winner of the night, Kim Ha-neul wore a simple strapless in dark blue. Once again, minimal accessories were used, but with her bright smile she looks stunning. Maybe that is what Kang Sora was missing? Not to be outdone by the ladies, many of the men opted against a traditional tuxedo for their own fashion statements. Gong Yoo looked dapper as always while escorting his young co-stars from “The Crucible” down the red carpet. He sported a velvet jacket and a slouchy bow tie. T.O.P.’s sharp black suit was paired with a dusty rose dress shirt. Actor Lee Minho appeared to be having a great night, as he posed playfully for cameras and teased his co-presenter and former co-star Park Bo-young while on stage. He also donned, perhaps the funnest look of the whole event and his demeanor helped him pull it of flawlessly. The light plaid pants and vest was paired with a long dark jacket and finished with a brown leather belt and shoes.
Do you think Lee Minho rocked the red carpet at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, or was it a flop? Who has your vote for best dressed?
