 Korea's politicians and actors win best dressed awards
Meet some of Korea's best dressed people.
From celebrities to politicians the annual Korea Best Dresser Swan Awards recognized some big names who have style.
A total of 14 people won including Korea's A-list actor Jung Woo-sung and model-turned-actress Ko Joon-hee.
Philippine-born lawmaker Lee Jasmine was also awarded as a politician with fashion sense.
She has now become the first foreigner to be given the award.

"This awards show started in 1983, so it's been 30 years of trying to get Korea's fashion industry in the global spotlight. The winners weren't selected just for the clothes they wear -- they were chosen for their sense of style, and how they present themselves in an attire that suits them."

Hosted by model agency Model Line, and the Korea Fashion Association, the event boasted some 5-hundred guests, including fashion industry leaders from China and Japan.
In its 30th year, the Swan Award winners are selected by fashion industry insiders and through online surveys.
Other best dressed winners include model and actress Clara, ballerina Kim Joo-won and child actor Yeo Jin-goo.
Korean designer Yang He-ill was also recognized with the Designer of the Year Award.
Past winners include current President Park Geun-hye when she was a lawmaker, and K-pop stars SHINee, and Super Junior.
