It has been a little less than a week after the much awaited Episode 16 finale of 'Crash Landing on You'. Safe to say it's the latest K-drama show to win our hearts (and our minds) effortlessly! Since Episode 16's airing, it has been announced that #CLOY's finale surpassed K-drama Goblin's TV ratings, achieving the highest ratings in tvN (Total Variety Network, a South Korean TV channel) history!


Now as for us who have already finished watching the show, we've got to admit: the hangover is real.

Metro.Style (MS): What are your top tips for achieving Yoon Se-ri's hairstyles in the show?

Mi-jeong: I cut the sides of her hair to give her some face-framing layers, which fall softly around her face. With this layered hairstyle, even her baby hair looked charming when she tied up her hair in a bun. Also, it covers her face line naturally, and her face shape looked more well-balanced. In general, with this soft layered haircut, richer and more sophisticated looks can be made. For my last tip, I parted her hair with a zig-zag instead of a straight line, so it can give more volume to her hair from the roots.

Mi-jeong: L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hair Spray, and Kérastase Elixir Ultime Essence!


Metro.Style: Can you tell us what it's like working with Son Ye-jin? How about your experience working on the 'Crash Landing on You' show?

Mi-jeong: Ye-jin and I have been working for more than 12 years now. She gives me credit for my style choice for different her characters, and that is how we get along so well, so far. I believe this teamwork worked perfectly for the 'Crash Landing on You' as well.

Metro.Style: What are your tips for achieving Son Ye-jin's 'no makeup-makeup' look for her character as Yoon Se-ri?

Mu Jin: I tried to do makeup which maximizes her attractiveness and beauty. When Ye-jin acted as the CEO Yoon Se-ri in Seoul, I changed lip colors often to give her various looks. Meanwhile, for Yoon Se-ri in North Korea, tried different shades to show a natural mood. 


Metro.Style: What makeup products did you use for her looks?

Mu Jin: Ma:nyo Herbal Fresh Moist BB Cream, Ma:nyo Herb Cushion in Beige/Ivory, Jennyhouse Air Fit Artist Eyeshadow in Rosy Beige/Mocha Latte, Tonymoly Back Stage Gel Eyeliner in Brown, and Jennyhouse Air Fit Lipstick in Monica Robe.

Metro.Style: What was your favorite makeup look in the show, and how did you achieve it?

Mu Jin: I like Yoon Se-ri's natural makeup look the most. The natural makeup look is the best for Ye-jin's well-balanced face and it also showcases her beautiful skin. I think her strongest point is that is she is innocent-looking, so I enjoy keeping that characteristic when I do her makeup. For this makeup look, I put really small amount of base product thinly, plus some concealer to cover a few spots. This base makeup stage is quite important, to make sure it looks beautifully natural.

Metro.Style: Can you tell us what eyeliner, lipstick, and what skincare Son Ye-jin uses for her face? 

Mu Jin: I suggest the Jennyhouse Air Fit line for her eye and lip makeup. I usually do not use any bold color for her eye makeup. The Jennyhouse Air Fit Artist eyeshadow (Rosy Beige+Mocha Latte) can give her deep, soft, and natural shades for her big, pretty eyes. After a couple of light touches on the eye lids with these shadows, I finish the eye makeup by drawing a thin eye line. When I want to make a different mood, I just adjust the eye line by thickening it. I use Jennyhouse Air Fit lipstick in Monica Robe for Ye-jin's Lip. Her original lip color is a pretty pinky color. With this lipstick, I cover her pink lips, then it gives off a natural calm mood to her.
