'The K-Files' is a special series for our K-Culture issue where we talk to true blue K-fans about their favourites — from movies to music to beauty and everything fun and wonderful from the Land of the Morning Calm.
My name is Farrah Espina and I was born in the mid-'90s. I started my blog in November 2014 to share my love for Korean beauty and fashion hoping that people will relate to it. Aside from blogging, I run a K-style inspired webstore called Happymallow.
Beginnings, inspirations, and personal style icons
[My love for K-style] began when I started following K-pop and K-drama celebs during my freshman year. I would save photos of my fave K-pop idols like Jessica and Krystal Jung's airport fashion on my laptop simply because I love how effortlessly chic they are.
Aside from Jessica and Krystal, I also love Weightlifting Fairy star Lee Sung Kyung's fashion.
