Here’s a list of things that you may have noticed as Korean culture influences your lifestyle.

You suddenly realize that you mutter “aigoo” or “aish” every time you get annoyed or the occasional “eottoke?” when you get flustered.

Your playlist

It happens gradually so you don’t notice it, but one day it hits you: your daily mix has suggestions from artists like Baek Ji Young or Yoon Mi Rae, and your history has songs like “Beautiful” and “You Are My Destiny”.

Taste in food

Food is life, and when you turn into a K-Drama fan you’ll find yourself frequenting your local Korean restaurant to get your fix of samgyeopsal, bibimbap, gimbap, ramyeon, tteokbokki, and of course, soju!

Fashion style

After finishing a good drama, there’s always something all fans wish for: dressing like their favorite character (and with this wish comes the occasional cursing over our tropical weather). From the charming sundresses to the adorable long-sleeves and oversized boyfriend sweatshirts.

Luckily, a selection of to-die-for Korean-inspired clothes are readily available in online fashion store Zalora. And even better, Zalora and Viu have a treat for you!
