Hotel King Kdrama Episode 5 Fashion Review
After learning that the former Ceil chairman has been led to his death, possibly by his own hands, Cha Jae Wan felt sick to his stomach. He now knows that Ah Mo Ne’s suspicions about the nature of her father’s death are not entirely unfounded.
Cha Jae Wan approached Mo Ne in the garden. Ah Mo Ne was taken aback when Jae Wan hugged her. The news must have unravelled him so much that he’s displaying uncharacteristic actions.
Anyway, Mo Ne wore this brown trench coat and pair of white pumps:

To get back at Joong Goo, Jae Wan called him up in this place. Joong Goo appeared and found his lost dog. Jae Wan accused him of drugging the former chairman but Joong Goo only jeered at him. He isn’t without a back up plan though, he called up Joong Goo’s daughter, while Joong Goo listens. Joong Goo pleaded to spare his daughter and voluntarily flung himself off the bridge. Jae Wan rescued him in the nick of time.
Baek Mi Nyeo took it upon herself to revise Mo Ne’s wardrobe. She suggested crisp suits and pared-down business ensembles while Mo Ne just rifles through the rack of clothes in distaste. Her style runs on one-of-a-kind designer pieces, she said.
While everyone else is doubting Mo Ne’s fashion taste, I do like what she’s wearing here. The yellow off shoulder top is cute and interesting. Both the top and skirt are from Missoni but not available online.
She heeded Mi Nyeo’s advice, crips suits and all, but added her own special Mo Ne twist: the frilly pussy bow. Lol. She just can’t resist adding a statement piece here and there.
The suit is from Andy and Debb though not available for purchase online.
She accessorized with this beautiful bracelet that her father gave to her.
Get Ah Mo Ne’s Bracelet:
Francis Kay New Yorker Emerald Point Bracelet, 58,500 Won
The former chairman gifted her with the bracelet when she was still in high school and it’s one of her most treasured possessions.
On her way to the meeting, she was waylaid by Chae Kyung, who purposefully sought her out to tell her that she ought to win her favor. Chae Kyung owns a large percentage of Ciel’s shares, after all.
Also, Mo Ne’s wearing a pair of platform pumps with the suit.

Chae Kyung, on the other hand is wearing a jacket is from The Izzat Collection. Her top is from 2econd floor, her skirt is from Coming Step and her shoes are from Masmuz.
It’s time to vote on Ah Mo Ne’s appointment as the new chairman. Surprisingly, many voted but that’s because Joong Goo voted for her too. Jae Wan made Joong Goo vote for Mo Ne. Surprisingly, it was Mi Nyeo who raised an objection. She wanted to know what Mo Ne can do as a chairman of the company and suggested that she be under probation for three months. She should meet an expected goal in the three months that she’s chairman or she’ll be forced to step down from the position.
Mo Ne’s all-white ensemble looks so pristine next to Jae Wan’s suit attire.
Mo Ne feasted on sweets brought by Woo Hyun. But her attempt at a conversation was rejected by Woo Hyun, who feels like he shouldn’t be too friendly with her now that she’s the hotel’s chairwoman.
How adorable is this get-up? Those butterfly-printed pants and blouse fit her like a glove. The turban is very Ah Mo Ne – totally unexpected.

Ah Mo Ne is wearing these slippers:
UGG Fluff Flip Flop II Hearts, $80.00
I mean, would you wear a turban with a casual outfit?
As if to further underscore her odd fashion sense, Mo Ne shows up the next day wearing THIS ensemble. Sure the dress is from Prada but the face and the bra print hardly earned her favourable points from the conservative ahjussis.
And as if the dress isn’t enough, she also wore sneakers with a pair of schoolgirl-inspired leg warmers. Ha!
Ah Mo Ne’s dress and leg warmer are from:
Prada S/S 2014 Collection (cr. Style.com)

Jae Wan didn’t fail to note Mo Ne’s outrageous attire but in an impressive display of tact, refused to say anything about it. haha! I love the styling though. It’s so very fashion week. Ah Mo Ne fits right in the London fashion week scene.
Ah Mo Ne’s bags and bracelets are from Prada as well.
Mo Ne, accompanied by Jae Wan, toured around the hotel. She checked out the kitchen.
She got lost and asked directions from this boy. The boy was uncommunicative and just showed her the right way.
When Mo Ne caught up with Jae Wan, she realized she lost her precious bracelet. She went back to the storage room and asked the boy if he has seen it. But rather than answer her, he ran. Mo Ne took this as a sign of guilt. She pressed him about the bracelet but the boy said he hasn’t stolen it. Jae Wan had the boy questioned.
While walking along the hotel’s lobby, Mo Ne chanced upon this girl. She’s wearing what looks like Mo Ne’s bracelet. After closer inspection, she confirmed that it is indeed her bracelet. The girl refused to give it to her though. Ho Il tried to help Mo Ne but the girl keep claiming it is hers. Woo Hyun interfered and gave the girl candy. As a reward, she gave the bracelet to him. lol. Ho Il apologized to Mo Ne, saying the girl is a trifle unhinged but must be tolerated because she is the daughter of one of their valued clients.
Realizing her mistake, Mo Ne rushed to Jae Wan and told her she found the bracelet already and that the boy should be released. That’s not possible though because he has already been fired. It’s not because he was suspected as a thief though but because he has been impersonating his brother all this time.
Turned out the boy has a juvenile crime. He was in jail for murder and after being released, he used his brother’s name to find work.
Ah Mo Ne feels responsible for the boy so she pardoned him and brought him back to work.
Ho Il and one of the chambermaids were talking when they saw Mi Nyeo make her way to this empty hallway. She hid a box inside a secret compartment.
It’s not often we get to see Jae Wan out of his suits. Let’s hope we see something more interesting from him in the next episodes.
The next day, Mo Ne stirred up trouble when she showed up at the employee’s cafeteria the next day, intending to have lunch with there. Everyone hurried up to finish their meal, not wanting to be in the same room as her.
Mo Ne sat with the boy, who is also being avoided by everyone after they found out he is a murderer. The boy was ungrateful about her friendliness though.
Only Woo Hyun was kind to Ah Mo Ne.
If there’s something embellished or ridiculously voluminous, I bet Mo Ne will be the first one to acquire it. It’s not surprising at all to find her decked out in this head-to-toe H&M embellished outfit.

H&M Embroidered Jacket, $349.00
Get Ah Mo Ne’s Pants:
H&M Embroidered Trousers, $139.00
A fight broke out amongst the employees. They were trying to alienate the boy (I fail at remembering his name, sorry) and he took exception to it. Jae Wan stopped the fight.
Here’s a full look at what Ah Mo Ne’s wearing. She’s really on to this monochrome theme, isn’t she? But as always, she wins with the styling. I’m not to keen on the military-esque vibe of the embroidery but the outfit’s kitschy and interesting enough for me.
Get Ah Mo Ne’s Bag:
H&M Beaded Shoulder Bag, $79.95
And also, those sandals!
Get Ah Mo Ne’s Sandals:
H&M Embroidered Leather Sandals, $179.00
The boy, in a fit of rage at the unfairness of the world, attempted to set the hotel’s kitchen on fire. But Mo Ne tried to talk some sense into him. When he was about to relinquish the lighter to Mo Ne though, a man walked in and dropped a lighter, which set the place on fire.
