MemeBox Coupon

Hi all! A lot of people have been asking me about Memembox and the membox Coupon ever since my post Korean Beauty Box Subscriptions – Memebox Review.

This is it here:

Copy the code and click here to go to Memebox to use it.

Memebox Has More than Beauty Boxes

I also wanted to add the Memebox does have more than beauty boxes. They also have Korean make up and beauty accessories that are really top quality like you would buy in Seoul. The 10% off coupon I listed above also applies to those items as well, not just Korean beauty boxes.

Joseon Beauty Cream

They have a lot of other Korean beauty products like the new Joseon Beauty Cream. It was featured on Woman’s Talk on their site. First of all the jar itself is really cute and Josean-Dynasty-Era-style. It’s the traditional jar style and the top is Korean paper handmade from mulberry tree. Don’t worry, though. Underneath the mulberry paper is a regular screw-on top to keep it fresh. By the way, if you like traditional Korean style, check out my post on where to buy your own tradition Korean hanbok online.

memebox-joseon-dynasty-cream

As you can see in the video, the cream itself is very thick and kind of sticky. You put it on at night before bed and you’ll wake up with your face feeling moist and hydrated.

This video is in Korean, but they have subtitles. (want to learn Korean?)

This video, however has no subtitles. It’s a show showcasing the cream. It’s called Korea Depart and it’s like a Home Shopping Network in Korea.

So, head over to Memebox and check out what they have in the Korean section. That have a lot of great products. Also, fair warning, if you happen to go to the site and the beauty box you want is available, go ahead and buy it ASAP. They sell out really fast as they are very popular. As of this writing, the Korean Study beauty box is sold out. So, if you happen to find it in stock, get it before they sell out again!

Etude House Korean Sunscreen

etude-houseAnother one of my favorite Korean brands for beauty is Etude House. They have a powerful SPF 50 suncreen that is not sticky and is 100% mineral based. (You generally don’t want to go higher than 50 SPF) It’s made of dwarf ground sedge extract and aloe vera.

Etude House is one of those brands that you see all over Seoul. Their spokesmodels are I.O.I., Sulli and Krystal from f(x) and who wouldn’t want to sport their style?

Coupon For Everything

So, that memebox coupon applies to everything in the store so go ahead and copy it and get 10% off whatever you want!

By the way, if for any reason that coupon doesn’t work leave a comment below and I will update it. The coupon has been working fine for a while now on Memebox and as I’m writing this I just checked it on the site and it still takes 10% off.

Korean Beauty Box Review – Memebox, Yesstyle Subscriptions US, UK, Canada + Coupon

Want to try out some Korean beauty products? A beauty box is a great place to start! There are several places you can get them online, but today we’ll be reviewing the 2 most popular ones: MEMEBox and Yesstyle.

MEMEBOX

MEMEBox is the leader in korean beauty boxes and has three main boxes. Two of them are for skin and one is for hair. Lets take a look at both. (Get the coupon here)

1) Mask and Study Box – $25

korean-beauty-box-mask-and

This box is designed for the diligent Korean student who spends a night in studying. But, if you’re going to be in and all alone, you might as well pamper your skin. Here’s what it includes:

box-contentsCream Mask Sheets: It comes with 3 of these by It’s Skin. They are a nutrition mask, a moisturizing mask, and a glow cream mask for radiant, dewey skin.

Skingel Masks: There are 3 Jeju skingel masks in Hanrabong, cactus, and green tea.

Stationary – Per it’s theme, it comes with some stationery! There’s a black notebook, a pink lego-style  pencil case, a memebox pen that looks like a pencil, and a notepad with a cute little kitty in a MEMEbox box.

Unboxing

I was thinking of doing an unboxing video, but Coffeatmyhouse already made one and I really like hers. So, I’m just going to put hers on here since she did such a great job.

Conclusion

They have a generous 101 day guarantee, but I’ve never returned anything and I doubt you will want to return it either. The stuff you get really is top-of-the-line, and you can check the reviews for yourself. I found a coupon code for you that will let you get 10% off your first beauty box. The code is: 101smiles.

 

YESSTYLE BOXES – Most around $20

There are 2 types of Korean beauty boxes at YestStyle.

  1. Korean Beauty Boxes
  2. Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Boxes

Korean Beauty Box

yesstyle-korean-beauty-boxThe Korean Beauty YesStyle Boxes are a little harder to talk about because they don’t send you the same thing every time. What they do is they randomly pick 10 things including: skin care, makeup, body care, hair care, etc. The brands include:

  • Skinfood
  • Innisfree
  • Laneige
  • Etude House
  • Tony Moly
  • Missha
  • Skin79
  • The Face Shop

But, despite the randomness, they are VERY well reviewed.

Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Box

If you want to get more specific and make sure they send you stuff from one particular brand, you can currently pick from Etude House or Laneige, and they will only send you stuff by that brand.

For both the Laneige beauty box and Etude House beauty box, they still send you random stuff, but they keep it specific to that brand. Again, you can expect to get products for skin care products.

Etude House Examples:

etude-house-beauty-box-1 etude-house-box-3 korean-beauty-box-by-etude-house-4 korean-etude-house-beauty-box-2

Laneige Box Examples:

asian-beauty-box-by-laneige laneige-beauty-box laneige-korean-beauty-box

By the way, you can buy any of these in the US, UK, or Canada because you purchase it online.

Learn Korean – How To Learn to Speak Korean Online Fast

Learning Korean with Kpop

When you learn Korean you get a lot more out of the music, which is why I started learning it. The language is very contextual so it’s pretty fun and relatively simple to learn. Yes, there are honorifics and formal vs informal speech. But, the grammar is really simple because tit was designed the be simple. In English there are so extra words used to describe the relationships of different words to each other. In Korean, the language uses mostly context to explain meaning of the sentence. This make for a much simpler grammatical structure that is pretty easy to learn.

So this is the new Korean learning site I’m trying out. They have a free trial, who wants to try it with me?

Learning To Speak Korean Helps Get More Out of Korean Dramas

Also, when watching Kdramas it is really useful. While the subtitles are great, once you start to learn the language you see how the subtitles. When you start to learn the language you see how the subtitles don’t always convey the entire meaning of what is being said. The subtitles are incredibly useful, but you’ll get a lot more out of the drama when you understand the specific words used. The cultural differences also influence the word usage. Knowing the culture a little bit makes the drama make a lot more sense. For example, when a girl calls a boy older than her “oppa” that can be significant. If that boy is her real brother then it might not mean anything. But when a girl calls a boy that she likes “oppa” she is verbally trying to be closer to him. If you were to translate that, it would just say older brother. But once you know what it really means and the significance in the culture, oppa has a much bigger meaning depending on the context.

This is just one example of how knowing the Korean language better give what is being said a lot more depth and make the dramas more enjoyable to watch.

How to Learn Korean Faster

If you want to learn Korean faster, I suggest that you try out a program for it. You can pick stuff up on your own with dramas and kpop, but if you really want to make progress it’s a good idea to try a program like Korean Class 101.

They’ll help you by starting with the basics of what you want to know and help you grow from there. It’s a really good idea to just get started with the Korean lessons right away. you would be amazed at how much faster you learn. When you have a structured system that explains it to you and breaks it down into its simplest components it makes it so much easier.

You know how you hear the same phrases over and over again in kpop songs, like saranghae, ottokae, and all those common expressions? Well, when you learn the building blocks of those words you’ll be able to put them together in different ways. Then you’ll be able to recognize more and more words as you watch dramas and listen to kpop.

Think about how many words you recognize now. As you start to learn the building blocks of the words you’ll double or triple your learning speed because you’ll be able to not only recognize phrases that you hear over and over, but you will be able to put the pieces of words together. You can mix and match them and understand what they mean.

For example, imagine trying to learn the English language without knowing the aphabet. You definitely could. There are plenty who learn to speak English language just fine without being able to read or write. But think about how long it takes someone to lean a language by having to memorize words and phrases rather than looking at what the letters of the alphabet are. Again, you could do it. But it would take you a lot longer.

If you learn the alphabet, which consists of the components of words, then you know what the individual buidling blocks of the words are. Then, you can learn to put them together to make other words. You will learn the language a whole last faster because you know and understand the buidling blocks. The differnece is understanding vs memorizing.

When you understand you can use knowledge like building blocks. With memorization, you can only repeat back what you have heard exactly. It’s like a child learning to talk vs a parrot. The child learns and understands how to put words together. A parrot just knows how to repeat. Again, this is the difference between memorization and understanding. It’s like trying to learn korean fashion without knowing what a shirt is.

I hope my little explanation helps, rather than confuses :)

But anyway, if you want to learn some korean you can do it for free, so you really have nothing to lose.

Buy Hanbok | Korean Traditional Wear For Sale in Online Stores

Have you seen the amazing clothes that they wear in period Korean dramas? They are the traditional Korean formal wear called a hanbok. Translated, it literally means “korean clothing”. There are many different kinds of hanboks and you may be wondering where you can buy one of your own. Fortunately, even if you don’t live in Korea (or a larger city with a Korea-town) you can still buy hanboks online. There are lots of stores online that sell hanboks, so I’ll be writing soon about the differences between them and which are the best places to buy YOUR awesome traditional, k-drama worthy Korean hanbok!

You’ve likely seen a lot of your favorite hallyu stars in a hanbok. Lee Min Ho, Song Joong Ko, Lee Hyun Woo, etc, etc.

Real Deal Hanboks

The first place I want to tell you about is a seller on Amazon called Antique Alive. They custom male hanboks for you. You just buy the hanbok, tell them your measurements and they make it for you. Pretty neat, huh? It’s like you’re getting the Joseon royal treatment!

This is the “real deal” hanboks made in Korea. Since it is in Korea, it takes a couple of weeks to ship to you. But, if you want something authentic, this is your best bet. They do good work and are very well reviewed.

Check them out here: Antique Alive

antique-alive-hanbok-amazon

Cheaper Hanboks

We’re also going to be looking into cheaper hanboks and where you can find some decent ones without paying too much. Sometimes you may not necessarily want to pay for the Joseon-princess royal treatment, so I’ll be adding some more information here soon.

Main Hanbok Pieces

Here are what the different parts of the hanbok are called. There are different pieces that are only worn by men or women and some worn by both. Some things have changed throughout the centuries, as with all fashion, but the basics of it are fairly consistent enough for this explanation to be useful.

Jeogori

The jeogori is the top part. It is worn by both men and women, but the women’s is shorter and generally more ornate. The men’s is simpler and longer. Jeogori constists of a lot of different pieces, most of which you don’t really need to know. But, in case you’re interested, there’s the git, gil, goreum, seop, so-mae, buri. The little white piece that sticks out from under the collar is called the dongjeong.

hanbok-pieces-of-jeogori

Otgoreum (long cloth in front)

That piece of cloth you see in the front of the women’s hanbok is called the otgoreum. It’s just for decoration and hangs down nicely in along the chima, or skirt.

Chima

The chima is also only worn by women (the men wear a baji). There are single layered, double layered, and quilted chima. Underneath that, you wear a petticoat-like skirt called a sokchima.

Baji

The baji is the pants and is only worn by men. Chimas and bajis are kind of like the traidition Korean form of skirts and pants.They’re a lot baggier than westerner’s pants so that you can sit on the floor.

Gat

The black hat you see the men wear is called a gat. The frame is made of horse hair and the fabric is horse hair.

lee-jun-ki

Women’s Hanbok

Women’s hanboks consist of jeogori and chima. Jeogori is the top part and is blouse/jacket and is more curvy looking than the men’s. The skirt part is called the chima. Also, only the women’s has the otgoreum.hanbok-pieces

Men’s Hanbok

The men’s hanbok also calls the top part jeogori, like the women’s. The men’s jeogori is a lot more simplistic than the women’s. The bottom pants are called a baji. They are pretty loose fitting to make it easy to sit on the floor. Po is what you call the robe that is worn over everything. Only the men get to rock that sweet gat.

kim soo hyun with a korean gat

Usage

Generally the hanboks are worn on formal or semiformal occasions. Ever since 1996, South Korea has Hanbok Day where they celebrate the the traditional Korean fashion everyone loves. There’s a big fashion show in Seoul and it’s been getting a lot of attention lately as all things Korean are exposed to a more globalized audience. Thanks to technology, this awesome style is being seen by people all over the world.. It even seems to be influencing fashion designers all over the world.

Well, more to come soon. For now, here is a picture of Song Jong Ki with his own sweet gat to hold you over. Also, let me know what kind of hanboks you’re interested in buying. Women’s hamboks vs men’s hanboks vs simple vs ornate? Message me and let me know what kind of hanbok you’re looking for and I’ll see what I can find.

Song Joong Ki Jjang!

I think eyes are really important so both of my picks for makeup (not surprisingly) are for eyes…

The TONYMOLY Pandas Dream So Cool Eye Stick is great for tired or puffy eyes. It’s cooling and moisturizing, helping to brighten the delicate skin around yours eyes.

Korean Fashion Online | Shopping for Korea Clothes and Kpop Costumes

I had a lot of different requests for different Kpop Fashion items. I’ve searched for and found everything from specific t-shirts and sneakers to shoulder harnesses and sailor dresses. In the process of looking for all of those Korean clothes, I’ve been able to find some of the best places to do Korean online shopping. It’s something that I love to do and have always enjoyed. And now, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite places to buy Korean clothing online.

Korean Fashion Online

One of my favorite places to buy Korean fashion online is Yes Style. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll say it again here. By far, they have some of the best prices and are usually the first place I look for something. This is my number one pick for Korea online shopping because they have a good return policy and you get your items quickly.

Korean clothes onlineKorean Online Shopping Returns

Korea online shoppingFor most regular fashion products like clothes and shoes you can exchange a defective item or exchange to another size within 14 days. Also, if you just don’t like it you can return the item for within 14 days. I wanted to mention, though, that swimwear, underwear, jewelry can only be exchanged if it’s defective. They won’t let you exchange those things for another size or if you just don’t want it anymore. The only let you exchange those kinds of items if there’s something wrong with it. So, if you’re just buying clothes or shoes you’re free to return it or exchange it within 2 weeks. But, if you’re buying underwear and swimwear make sure you get your right size because they only let you exchange it if it’s defective.

Korean Fashion Deals

Another great thing about buying Korean clothes online from Yes Style is that they are always having specials and deals. Right now for example they are having a deal where if you spend $35 you get free shipping AND they have a 10% off coupon. That’s just at the time of this writing, though. They might have something different going on when you read this. They also have a lot of flash sales so I like to check there often to see what they have going on. This is what’s great about buying Korean clothing online. You can check around and see when they are having sales, all from your phone and laptop!

Korean Online Shop: Most Legit

My favorite legit Korean online shop is QNIGirls. As the name suggests, they only have women’s clothes, but don’t worry there are plenty of other places to find men’s clothing. For women’s Korean clothing online this is, in my opinion, the most authentic you can get. They are actual Korean clothes shipped from Korea. The website is in Korean, lol, but if you’re using Google Chrome it will automatically translate the page for you. So, no worries if you don’t speak Korean. Anyway, this Korean online shop is the real deal. They have tops, bottom, outerwear, and pretty much anything you would want for Korean clothing. For summer, they are also having a lot of swimwear. They a good selection of makeup, shoes and accessories and it is all real deal Korean stuff. So, if you’re looking for a real Korean shopping online experience this is the place to go.

Kpop Costumes

Kpop costumes are another story, though. If you are looking for a costume that you have seen on stage then they might not have what you’re looking for. For something more traditional (or should I say a LOT more traditional) we have a new post on where to find a korean hanbok for sale online. Be on the lookout in the future though as I’ll likely be posting on that soon.Korean online shop

By the way, if you’re feeling brave with your Korean language skills… check out this site: Naver Shopping. A lot of the text is images, so the browser translator won’t work, but check it out if you’re up for it.

Korean Clothing | Dresses, Outfits, and Korean Style Brands

Do you love Korean clothing? That’s probably why you are here! I love Korean clothing and fashion and that’s why I made this website. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about what I like about it, where you can find it online. Something that I like a lot about Korean fashion and clothing is the dresses.

Korean Dresses

One of my favorite places to get dresses is from Yesstyle. There are many different styles of Korean dresses but one of my favorites is the cute, or aegyo, kind. Aegyo is basically Korean for cute…apink-approves

One of the reasons that I love the cuter dresses is that they are really nice but are still modest and don’t look like you’re trying too hard. Now, a little side point I thought was interesting… what’s considered “going overboard” with your clothes really depends a lot on your culture.

green korean dresskorean dresseskorean fashion
korean dressFor example, in South Korea, I’ve noticed that it’s a lot more common for girls to show their legs. On the other hand, it’s considered more edgy to show your back and shoulders. Here in Florida where I live, it’s actually the opposite. Girls don’t show their legs as much, but they show a lot of back, shoulders and chest. Of course different people have different styles and preferences, but it’s still considered modest to show your shoulders here whereas it isn’t in South Korea.

That’s one interesting thing that I found about the difference between Korean outfits and other types of fashion: the culture. The culture plays a really large part in what is considered cute and what is considered edgy. I suppose it’s because in Korea it’s a lot colder so it’s okay to show your legs more but if you’re showing off your shoulders I guess it looks like you’re just trying too hard. I guess it’s just too cold! But in hot, sunny Florida, it’s just too hot to cover your shoulders. But you don’t want to go overboard and show too much of your legs either. Of course different people will disagree with this, but that’s just been my observation of the difference between Korean clothing and outfits and what see you around here. Check out our list of top Korean clothing brands below (click to drop down to the list)

Of course, you can’t leave out the classic flowy blouse with a skirt look.

korean dress yellow

So, if you live somewhere where it’s not all that socially acceptable to show your legs a whole lot, make sure that you take a good look at the Korean dress that you buy. When you’re looking at Korean fashion style clothing, remember that will probably show a lot of leg, especially if you’re tall.

Other Korean Clothing and Outfits

korean fashion clothingOne of my other favorite Korean outfits is the snuggly sweater with shorts. You can see a lot of kpop stars wearing them. It’s something you see a lot of and videos and even in some airport fashion. That’s the great thing about Seoul. You can see kpop and movie stars everywhere because a lot of them live in that one big city, so you get to see both the red carpet Korean fashion as well as the more casual outfits. One of the outfits I like the best is the cute fuzzy sweater top with shorts. I like it because it keeps you warm and toasty and but still but doesn’t look too casual because the shorts make it cute even for going out. This is a nice outfit for hanging out with friends or just being at home. But, you can even go out and look fantastic. That’s what I love about Korean style clothing. If you look at a lot of airport fashion, it’s really nice but it’s very comfortable too. Not all Korean clothing is meant to be super comfortable, but a lot of it is. So, you can look for your favorite Korean outfits on the variety of websites online. You can also check out our new article on where you can buy hanbok.

Ok, so you want to replicate the looks of your favorite kpop star? This checklist is the fastest way to do it.

  1. Picking one outfit worn by your favorite Korean idol.
  2. Choose the most defining thing about that outfit.
  3. Search for their name and that item.
  4. If that doesn’t work, use different terms for the clothes
  5. Think of this as outfit hunting and don’t get distracted.
  6. When you find the item, save it for later.
  7. Go to the next most defining thing and repeat.

What I Mean By Most Defining Article of Clothing

This is a matter of perspective, but you’ll want to start stands out the most to you in the outfit. It might be the shoes. It might be the dress. Maybe the hat. Just pick the ONE thing that you feel is the most important part of the outfit and start there.

Hunting vs Browsing

One thing I learned to do that is very helping when finding Korean fashion online is to think of it as hunting rather than browsing. When browsing you’re looking around to see what’s there. This takes way more effort as you have to look at everything and make little decisions about whether something would work or not. This is why shopping can be so draining. You’re making these tiny decisions, but doing it over and over again really wears you out. It’s mentally intensive and just not the most fun way to shop whether online or in the store.

When hunting, on the other hand, you have something specific in mind and you ignore everything else. You only have to make one decision: is this the thing I’m looking for? That’s it. You can make that decision over and over again and it’s way less tiring than just browsing. Also, when you have something in mind, it tends to jump out at you because you’re thinking about it.

The same way if you think about everything red in the room. Go ahead and try it. Think about “red” and look around the room. See how all those things that are red just pop out at you? Now think “blue” and look again. Now, you’re seeing all these blue things you didn’t notice before. This is how our brains work and you can use it to help you find Korean fashion a lot faster and make shopping online a lot more fun.

Korean Fashion | What I Love About Korean Style and Clothes

As you can probably tell, I really love Korean fashion. This article I’m going to be talking a little bit more about what I love about Korean style and clothes. I’ll also be going into some of my favorite places to buy Korean Fashion online!

Finding Korean Style Clothes Online

No doubt, you are here because you love kpop and Korean style clothing. You have probably looked around and tried to find specific items of clothing that you’ve seen your favorite K-pop stars wear. In addition to K-pop, kdrama Stars are also famous for what they’re wearing both on-screen and off-screen. The same goes for K-pop Stars. They are just as well known for what they wear to the airport as for what they wear on stage or in their music videos.

yest style korean fashion

Some of my favorite places to buy Korean style clothes is Yesstyle. They have a lot of different selection of Korean Style clothing. Another really good place to get Korean clothes is Qnigirls. They are based in South Korea so they’re about as legit as you can find when it comes to Korean clothing brands.

Cold Weather Korean Fashion

One of my favorite things about Korean fashion is that it is nice and warm while being really stylish. Korea is about the same latitude as North Carolina in the United States. Now, North Carolina is not all that cold, but South Korea is a lot colder even though it is on the same latitude. The reason for this is that South Korea gets the Siberian winds from the north. So, even though South Korea and North Carolina are all about the same latitude, South Korea is a lot colder for most of the year. Because it is a lot chillier in South Korea the style has evolved to include lots of stylish outerwear. A lot of Korean fashion style includes blazers, trench coats, peacoats, boots, and other things that you generally wear in the winter.korean clothes brands

Summer fashion can be fun, but nothing beats the stylishness of a more formal looking winter outfit. This is one of the main reasons that I love Korean fashion. They use a lot of nice clothes that keep you warm and look really stylish. Because it’s a little cooler, people focus more on dressing up nicely and taking very good care of their clothes. In warmer climates, it seems like it’s just too hot to do that and so people dress a lot more casually. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s just my personal preference to dress a little more on the nicer side and be a little less casual.

Casual Korean Clothes

Even the airport fashion that you see K-pop stars wear are really stylish and look really nice. The whole point of going to the airport is to be comfortable, but I love to see how these K-Pop Stars still manage to look amazing even though they’re in their most casual attire. Even if they’re just wearing sweat pants and a baggy shirt. You can tell that they are well-fitting and flatter their shape and are carefully selected. We also have the other end of the spectrum with traditional korean clothes with our hanbok article, including our favorite hanbok store.

Well, that’s my take on it!

Post below why you love Korean Fashion or your favorite place for Korean online shopping!

Korean BB Cream

BB Cream is a must for Kpop stars. As I’m sure you’ve seen, everyone from musicians to the hottest Korean actors use it to give them a natural look that blends in with their skin.

On top of that, BB cream also provides SPF protection and moisturizes. Most Korean makeup artists typically use it as a light foundation for both their female and male clients. There are some BB creams available in the US, by why not get the real deal? Below, you can buy real Korean BB Cream on Amazon for only $17!

Buy Sulli’s Etude House BB Cream!

Just for fun, here’s the commercial with Shinee fawning over Sulli and her baking skills!

Watch below, as Sulli shows you how to apply this BB cream! (in Korean) Don’t worry. NExt week we’ll be back to fashion. We’re looking to expand kpopfashion.net to be about more things that you love!

 

K.will Keds

I love this video! K.will’s emotional and soulful voice is so moving, and I can see why he might usually sing sad ballads, but it’s so nice to hear a cheerful song from him! I love this happy number: Day 1. The video is so sweet and has a rewarding story! I love Korean high school-inspired outfits, and the female lead (Soyou of Sistar) in this mv was wearing some cute red shoes that caught my eye. If you pause it at 1:31 you can see they’re red Keds with plaid laces. I did some combing through the internet, and (to my great excitement :P) found the same pair! Get them below, and then share your own cute confession stories with us!

NoNoNo Japanese Version Kpop Costume

The huge hit “NoNoNo” from my adorable bias group Apink translated  nicely into a Japanese version. Many fans felt the settings and outfits in the video, while different from the Korean version, came off as fresh but familiar. Seven months after its release, I have a feeling this song will still be regularly floating through Pandas’ earbuds for awhile yet!

Here’s a requested find for one of our awesome readers!

Again, thank you, everyone, for all of the requests! I’m sorry I don’t get to all of them, but your support is really appreciated! :) <3 Keep them coming in!
