Jirisan, iQiyi’s Original Korean drama series, opened to record ratings as mind-boggling mysteries across realms drove buzz. Lead actress Gianna Jun’s age-defying beauty and various stylish looks have also been the focus of many fans’ discussions.
In her breakout film My Sassy Girl, Gianna Jun played the unreasonable yet pure-hearted girlfriend that remained in the hearts of many. In My Love from the Star, Jun was actress Cheon Song-yi who captivated fans everywhere. She was even a beautiful mermaid in Legend of the Blue Sea. Now in Jirisan, Gianna Jun is in the role of star park ranger Seo Yi-gang, helping and saving those in need in every episode. Without elaborate costumes, Jun’s timeless beauty effortlessly carried off diverse styles from professional uniform, mountaineering, athleisure, to even relaxed fits – all straight out of fashion textbooks.
Many have been drawn to Gianna Jun in her formal park ranger uniform, long straight tresses, and stunning looks. Her military-feel formal suit complete with shirt and tie hit the spot and brings to mind the 2004 film Windstruck where she charmed in the formal police uniform. Regardless of then or now, Jun’s appearance remains at the peak of her beauty, and her ethereal charm keeps viewers returning for more.
A park ranger’s job is to protect those who climb, visit or live on Jirisan and its surroundings. Through the series, Gianna Jun is often seen on patrol and her graceful, athletic posture is not weighed down by the climbing gear she is often carrying. With trekking poles, walkie-talkie, and other equipment, she manages very well, flexibly shuttling between the woods and valleys with ease. Fans are already looking to climb and hike with the same gear that Jun is using.
As a park ranger’s daily work is among the mountains and woods, utilitarian athleisure wear is also part of their go-to for comfort and convenience. Even clad in a casual hoodie, Gianna Jun looks chic. In comfortable athleisure wear, Jun’s slender build and perfect 172cm frame coupled with long locks – whether let down or tied up in a ponytail – exudes confidence.
In Jirisan, Gianna Jun appears in light or no make-up through many scenes. Her fresh, youthful look shines through with simple fits of casual shirts and jeans, to look even younger. Jun’s gracefulness elevates simple, minimalist fits to looking extraordinary, embodying the true meaning of “Less is more”.
