[ChanMi's take] Yoo Jin VS Shin Hyeon-joon, who made the bigger fashion error? 2009/10/24, Source, Once in a while, stars come in public in very unique outfits, or costumes. The concept is really random and is concluded as a fashion error.
Yoo Jin and Shin Hyeon-joon are no exceptions to these fashion errors.
Yoo Jin tried to follow the trend, however, she matched the fashion items in an awkward style. Her overall look did not work good together.
Shin Hyeon-joon looked more comic in the kilt worn by the Scottish males as their traditional costumes. It was a very random outfit and did not look good on him at all!
Who do you think made the greater fashion error?,...More

The girl is gorgeous, but sometimes her fashion coordinator seems to make little odd mistakes?
Her outfits seems very unbalanced in some way.
