4 Homes Inspired by Korean Drama’s
In an age where K-culture is becoming a unique phenomenon all over the world, and drama’s like Secret Garden and Kill Me, Heal Me have become cult favorites. Not only plot wise, but also regarding customs, it was only natural that people started looking up to these while making certain lifestyle choices. These choices may vary and range from language and customs, all the way to the application of interior design and architecture. While the grand modern opulence of Kim Joo Won’s home in Secret garden reflects poise, grandiose and austerity, the ornate, traditional yuan in Goong remind us of history. The palate may vary, but the main style that these drama’s follow lies somewhere between modern and contemporary Hanok. It derivative its interior designs from a minimalist aesthetic that is borderline contemporary. Let us take a look at a few of these homes and appreciate their references to pop culture.
She was pretty
Though definitely leaning towards a more austere setting, this interior emulates the floor plan of She Was Pretty, where apartment living was the norm between two best friends. This immaculate interior might be sleek, but the layout is similar – a small, cozy little living room with a well-equipped adjoining kitchen acting as the atrium of this home. The theme thrives on its simplicity, while emulating a transitional setting and an earthy color scheme. The set designers of She was Pretty would be proud to see this creative masterpiece in the wake of their design.
Cinderella and Four Knights
This Korean Cinderella might have resided in the renowned Sky House for the length of this drama, but we definitely got glimpses of her true home – the apartment she had shared with her mother and father. That cozy little affair is what must have inspired the setting of this sweet little apartment. From the homely looking couch facing a media wall, to the plethora of photo frames lined across the feature, this apartment has it all. Combined with the intimate breakfast nook with an attaché kitchen we’ve got the perfect articulation of Cinderella’s comely apartment home from the drama.
The Master’s Sun
Joo Joong Won’s mansion might have been a work of art, but his room had an elementary simplicity that this interior has managed to articulate. The use of natural light works well with the overall minimalist vibe of this room. The bright, airy outlook of this room is definitely inspired by personal room of The Master’s Sun’s protagonist.
Han Yoo Joo’s apartment in coffee prince may have been an artist’s dream, and this apartment has embraced that aesthetic in all of its minimalist glory. The sleek materials, along with a dim lighting make for a unique stylistic expression. The overall vibe is a mix of modern come contemporary, and most of its chic elegance comes from an unadorned simplicity.
