Just like her character Lee Si Woo can predict the weather, Song Kang knows what rains and what shines in the fashion world.
The 28-year-old South Korean actor captured the spotlight and hearts as Lee Si Woo in his latest hit K Drama Forecasting Love & Weather, playing the role of a weather forecasting genius who braves the storms of a seemingly complicated love story.
Fans said goodbye to the beloved character in the series finale that aired in April, but he has yet to finish channeling Lee Si Woo.
The actor stars in a new Penshoppe campaign for the brand’s new In Color collection, a line of classic and versatile fashion pieces that come in vibrant hues and are accented with polychrome details.
In an exclusive interview with Penshoppe, Song Kang shares her predictions for the future of everyday fashion, and her predictions might not be too far off the mark.
What does your current fashion look like and what are some of your favorite fashion trends?
“My current fashion is casual. I like to wear comfortable clothes for personal time off my schedule, so a lot of the items in my closet are more casual. Trending items that [catch] my focus these days is on long pants and cropped jackets.
As a fashion enthusiast yourself, you’ve seen trends come and go, but what do you think is one trend that’s here to stay?
“I think [it would be] sports clothing. There are a lot of people working out these days as part of their self-care routine. Functionality is the most important element of sportswear and compared to the past, there are many clothes with various designs that can be worn on a daily basis. There may be changes in design and style, but since this is a trend closely related to people’s lifestyle, I feel like the trend itself is here to stay.
What fashion pieces do you think will always be in style?
“I think items like jeans, shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts will be in constant demand no matter how much time passes. These basic items are clothes that we have owned as essentials over generations. They are simple and go well with everything, which makes them versatile.
What do you think casual everyday clothing will look like in 10 years?
” It is difficult to [guess] since fashion trends change so quickly, but I don’t think it would be too different from what it is now. They say fashion trends come and go. Just as items from 10 years ago are back in style with a retro twist, the items we wear today would be back in style in ten years.
