The Origin Of Park Yeon Jin’s Iconic Green Dress From “The Glory” Surprises Netizens
K-Drama fans are quick to notice the fashion worn by actors in the show, and Netflix‘s popular K-Drama The Glory was no exception. One piece of clothing that stood out was the green dress worn by Park Yeon Jin, played by actress Lim Ji Yeon.
In The Glory, Park Yeon Jin’s character comes from a wealthy family. As an adult, she works as a news reporter and marries a rich CEO. With her high-powered job and expensive lifestyle, viewers naturally assumed that the green dress she wore while hitting Son Myeong Oh with an alcohol bottle would also be from a luxury brand. However, the truth behind the dress is quite surprising.
What many viewers didn’t know is that the dress was not a luxury brand, but a ₩61,000 KRW (about $46.60 USD) dress from Coupang, a Korean e-commerce platform similar to Amazon.
When people found out where Yeon Jin’s dress was from, it quickly sold out on Coupang’s website. Many viewers were impressed by the fact that a dress that looked so luxurious and high-end was actually affordable and accessible.
Netizens responded by saying, “I thought it was a luxury item because Yeonjin wore it,” “I thought it would be very expensive because it looked luxurious, but it was surprisingly an affordable item,” and “I think it’s who’s wearing the clothes that is important.” In other scenes, Yeon Jin was seen carrying luxury bags, such as this Chanel bag that costs more than ₩5.00 million KRW (about $3,820 USD) — a huge jump from the price of the green dress.
The popularity of the green dress from The Glory shows that expensive doesn’t always mean better when it comes to fashion, and it is possible to look stylish and put-together without breaking the bank.
