As it is known a person’s blood type influences his/her character and temperament. There are 4 blood types:

I – O
II – A

In Russia the first classification is commonly used.

When I was in Korea 85% of my friends and acquaintance asked me about my blood type )))  Why is it so important?))
Indeed there are a lot of investigations on blood type and it influence person. One of them is devoted to interconnections between a blood group and style. Let see the findings^^

1. A-type males – Dandy look
One-word description: “perfection”

A-type guys are usually kind, timid, good-looking, handsome. They are a bit sentimental and open-hearted. So soft cardigan +cotton pants attire suits them the most~ Dandy.

댄디룩 or Dandy style takes its roots in the end of 18th century, when the term “Dandy” came into use to describe an outfit of  the British aristocracy. Nowadays this words applies to modern casual, a bit slacking style.
