Newcomer Hwang In-Yeop received the biggest amount of votes to act as Crown Prince Lee Shin with 58.9% of the votes (124,569 votes). Lee Do-Hyun was the 2nd one to be chosen with 30.2% (63,892 votes), then Kim Young-Dae (5.6%) and Lee Jae-Wook (5.3%).

He won hearts in his role in The Tale of Nokdu, 18 Again, and True Beauty. Lee Shin is a serious man due to his restrictive lifestyle and in the middle of a tense familial relationship. His rare smile comes out when Chae-Kyung cheers him up makes Hwang perfect for the role.

Kim Woo Seok would perfectly fit the role of the cute and kind Prince Lee Yul and he received the major amount of votes with 59.0% of the votes (95,169). SF9’s Ro Woon received 22.6% of the votes (36,475), Golden Child’s Bo Min 14.7% (23,741), and Bae Hyun Sung 3.6% (5,796).

Lee Yul is Lee Shin’s cousin who rivals him in the role of the crown prince as well as Chae-Kyung’s heart. He befriends Chae-Kyung as she led a lonely life in the palace and eventually falls for her. In contrast to Lee Shin, Lee Yul with his gentle smile often consoles Chae-Kyung in her time of need. However, he himself cannot avoid palace conflicts and the layers of his character emerge with moral conflicts surrounding his feelings for Chae-Kyung and desire for approval.

4. Yeon Woo for Min HyoRin (Song Ji Hyo)

For the talented ballerina Min Hyo-Rin, Kpopmap readers selected former member of Momoland, Yeon-woo with 38.9% of the votes (40,657). Park Yoo-Na gathered 31.1% of the votes, Kang Min-ah 21.2%, and Kim Bo-Ra 8.9%.

Played by Running Man’s Ace, Song Ji Hyo, Min Hyo-rin was the role that cemented Song as a star. She was Lee Shin’s first love and he proposed to her before marrying Chae-Kyung. Min is a talented ballerina who chose her ambition over her love for Lee Shin. They bond over their loneliness and fell in love. However, her failures led her to desperately crawl back to Lee Shin. She ultimately becomes a major threat to the main couple’s relationship.

Upholding The Malay Tradition, These Are Different Styles On Wearing ‘Sampin’

Published

on

The tradition of wearing sampin has come way back since the generation of our elders. There are so many people that can be seen wearing sampin as part of their essential outfits. Definition of sampin according to Kamus Dewan would be as a sarong worn after wearing the pants in the Malay attire and usually from the waist to the knees only. Sampin is also used to complement the looks when wearing baju Melayu.

Nowadays, we often see people wearing sampin during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Hari Raya Aidiladha, or any other formal events that require them to wear baju Melayu. There are actually so many different styles that can be used when someone is wearing sampin. All of these different styles come from different regions and sometimes bring different meanings for the wearer.

These are examples of different styles of wearing sampin:

1) Ikatan Pancung

The method on how to wear this style is just by using loose fabric. The fabric is wrapped around the waist and before reaching the end of the fabric, the fabric is “beheaded”. That means the fabric is pinned while letting the end of the fabric hang down.

2) Ikatan Kembung

This is the style of wearing sampin that usually worn by the bridegroom in any wedding custom of the Malays. The word kembung comes from the impression of looking like you are bloating when wearing this style. The fabric is pulled to the middle or side of the body to be tied and knotted in various ways so that it will stick to the waist.

3) Ikatan Lingkup

This is the usual way on how people wear sampin. The sheath fabric is rolled up and draped over the front or sides. Similar to how to wear a sarong for everyday needs.

4) Ikatan Anak Raja Lima

When wearing this style, you have to balance the fabric in the middle. Arrange and fold downwards. Finish the tiered layer. Take the bend and update the side ties at the waist.
