The Penthouse has definitely set our standards when it comes to makjang (exaggerated plots) K-dramas. Although we're stressed by the characters (we're looking at you, Joo Dan Tae), we have to admit that it's one addictive show! The lives of the rich and famous are highlighted here and once you pair that with murder and classical music—you have a drama that everyone (even Korean celebs!) will tune in to. No wonder it's now on its third season!
While we're immersed in its storyline, The Penthouse also gave us a set of iconic outfits that can go from cute and sweet to bold and becoming. First, there's Bae Ro Na (Kim Hyun Soo)'s style that we would totally cop on a trip with friends (or a date with an oppa like Joo Seok Hoon). And then there's Joo Seok Kyung (Han Ji Hyun) and her OOTDs that feel like a fashion show every single time! Of course, we can't forget the queens of the Hera Place—Shim Su Ryeon (Lee Ji Ah), Cheon Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon), and Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene): These ladies has their own distinct flair that never fails to impress us.
Just in case you're a fan of The Penthouse characters and their sartorial fashion sense, let content creator Kat Noble of ItsKatStyle give you tips on how to recreate their outfits! Watch this video produced by her to learn more.
