[Pann] The reality of fashion forward Korea?










Pann: Korea's known for their top fashion but this is reality

1. [+30, -1] Koreans have no individuality. As soon as one thing trends, everyone goes and buys it and throws it out as soon as something else trends. We just care too much about trends and what others think.

2. [+23, -3] This is true... Westerners care about individuality but Koreans care more about following the trends and not falling behind... I remember my teacher saying she knows a foreigner who was so surprised when he first landed in the Korean airport because everyone was wearing the same clothes... so let's stop following trends and work on building our individuality. Don't tease others for not having good fashion.

3. [+23, -0] You can tell just with the honey butter chips craze, people are trend crazy

4. [+13, -0] Well students will bully you if you don't wear a $700 Northface jacket so of course parents will break their backs to buy their kids one

5. [+10, -0] People really just need to stop laughing and teasing people who dare to dress outside of the trends

6. [+10, -0] I don't follow the trends but there are people who stare at me and laugh on the inside when they see me wearing stuff that is done trending

7. [+8, -0] Because people care too much about what others think. And even if you try not to care, others shove their opinions in your face. There's no way out.

8. [+4, -0] I live near a college so I see college students often and they all dress similarly. No individuality... same clothes, just different colors  ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+3, -0] I lived abroad for a long time and recently got back to Korea and I was so surprised at how similarly everyone dressed...

  2. This is kind of sad. :/

  3. well in Europe (no all parts of course) we also follow trend. pretty much lots of ppl here dress like 'hipsters' but we dont look the same like in this case

    ReplyDelete
  4. collective society for sure

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow so far all I've seen in my country has been the kids wearing to clothes from the kids telenovelas lol. This is another level.

  7. I mean to some extent this does occur outside Korea as well.I went to high school in Canada and everyone wore those ugly ass Aeropostale hoodies and TNA sweatpants.
    People usually develop their own styles when they get older and can be exposed to more things.But yeah, brands and trends always have an influence

    ReplyDelete
  8. I noticed that too when i was on holiday in Korea. Though I really like Korean fashion it felt really boring when I was there and everyone had pretty much the same style, nobody took my attention at all :/

    ReplyDelete
  9. Reminds me of that kid and his dad from Pinocchio... just following the trend...

    ReplyDelete
  10. same as in gangnam ave. everyone with the same face (ps)

    ReplyDelete
  11. like how so many young ppl in southern cali all dress like brandy girls

    ReplyDelete
  12. In the second to last photo, which one is Waldo?

  13. 'I remember my teacher saying she knows a foreigner who was so surprised when he first landed in the Korean airport because everyone was wearing the same clothes.'



    That foreigner is me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. all the same?????????/ woahhhhhh, didnt expect that.....

    ReplyDelete
  15. well even though girls in cali mostly have same style they still dont wear exactly the same things

    ReplyDelete
  16. i personally don't like it when someone wears the exact same thing as me

    ReplyDelete
  17. all i remember from korean style is that I saw a lot of people wearing socks with sandals!

    It's because as they said, it's about trends. Most of these people could give less fucks about fashion and just buy what they see trending on TV. Same goes for US though, spring is here, see how many boys you see in khaki pants, Adidas/Jordans and a plaid top lol.

  19. I am the only one who's laughing so hard here ?

  20. I think the comments about individuality is right on. Individuality and self-expression, especially amongst youth, is encouraged in my country. I think it's a vital part of self discovery and it kind of makes me sad that people are compelled to suppress that.

    ReplyDelete
  21. well if you're going to nitpick and say it's not the exact same then i can say the same about some of the photos above lol
    please note that i said "many" not "all"

    ReplyDelete
  22. yeah i'm canadian, and it was pretty much unnaceptable to not wear primarily american eagle, aeropostale, and hollister clothing while i was in elementary school.


    i remember it was considered "uncool". and so all the cool kids dressed exactly the same and thought they were the shit for it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. when you go with subway in SK, you will see at least 2 people wear same thing or have same phone case lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. The pictures look FUNNY & SCARY at the same time

    ReplyDelete
  25. Totally. The thing about Korea is that it's not always about people sporting the same brand, but you'll see the same cut, style, and color of clothes in almost every shop. It's like, where's the variety???

    ReplyDelete
  26. You actually have to see it to completely know what I mean. we have trends here two same H&M fashion over and over, with a few stylish people here and there. but image all stylish people to be the same, it really took me kinda by surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fashion is all about being original and different,bringing something new to the table.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Even phone cases? Lol what kinds are there? Like patterns?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Same. Even if I'm wearing a color and someone I'm out with wears the same color, I don't really like it. It looks like we coordinated or something. Like couple shirts 😂

    ReplyDelete
  30. I even get annoyed when I go into a store and see at least 2 copies of something I own which is pretty stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This is why my mum tells me not to spend money on buying what's trending now, because you're gonna wear the same and look the same and there's no originality anymore! She told me to always wear things before the trend starts LOLOLLL meaning stay out of trend and dress up more unique

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whatever. At least, korean fashion is way BETTER than US and other Asian country (especially China and SEA). It was really funny that there were many chinese and southeast Asians sought the Korean fashion as if they wanted to look like Korean. It is a pity because most (over 90% ) of K people really dont care and are not interested about them at all a XD

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah, I can identify Korean tourists and students in my city because they all wear the exact same clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I never had the money to follow trends, eventually I learned to not give a shit about what other people were wearing and just wore what I liked.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Luckily, I wear clothes not similar to anybody because I have a fashion sense only I can understand.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wish the yoga pants and uggs trend would just die. I get so annoyed seeing it when it's hot as satans balls outside smh

    ReplyDelete
  37. where i'm from, some ppl try to be so different and "unique" that they all start looking the same too lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. When I was looking at Seoul Fashion Week stuff, I was so bored. Some designers have settled into making really nice key pieces, while others just looked like they repeated everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  39. where do you live? just curious, cause no one dresses like that anymore where i'm live.

  41. I feel like this is just a thing with "normal" people? the more creative or artistic you are, there's generally more individuality. Even Westerners are big on trends, like remember Uggs? Jeggings? Yeah. It's just more visible in Korea I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  42. this comment sounds so koreaboo lol

  45. This is so true. I live in venice and there are actually a lot of korean tourists here, and 99% of times you can recognize them. It's not only the clothes, but the hairstyles and the "face" that's similar. I don't know if it's just because the majority of the tourists are probably from middle/upper class or if it's everywhere like that in korea tbh. I'm not even saying it's a bad thing, but i personally don't find it a good thing either? Idk.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lol koreaboo much?

    ReplyDelete
  47. obviously there are trends everywhere and certain items become popular but I don't think this 'same' style of dressing is so extreme in other countries. Other than the years where Uggs and tracksuits were the #1 trend because all the celebrities wore them, with one of those huge ugly handbags lol.

    Like I went somewhere last year where brightly coloured New Balance sneakers and large platforms were very popular and everyone wore them, but all the kids I saw styled and accessorised the items differently. Like one girl was wearing a baseball uniform style shirt and jeans with the sneakers, another was wearing a dress, a third one had a really androgynous kind of style.....they had the same items but all looked different.

    ReplyDelete
  48. i hate it when there's an event or smething at my school tht requires evyone to 'dress up'. when we found the one tht wear the same cloth with us, the urge to go home just to change into smthing different is real tbh

    ReplyDelete
  49. Same faces everywhere....

    ReplyDelete
  50. Paris is called the capital of fashion In Paris but only people with money dress well cause most people especially young people buy their clothes in the same stores so they end up dressed the same but if you go to some particular places where only rich people can afford to live people are dressed like celebrities! gays are always fashionable too! since I have moved to London I have noticed that people dress well too and you're not judged if you dress differently, which happens all the time in Paris -__-

    ReplyDelete
  51. looking at this pictures,, i was like woahh... so they ARE telling the truth haha but for me,, i just wear whtever i want lol

  52. IntenseFeelings_UglySobbingMarch 26, 2015 at 3:35 PM

    Don't take me out of context but I've heard Korea has troubles with individuality. A lot of people who live in Korea tell me that it's usually hard to be different.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Honestly I am mortified if I find someone wearing the same cloths as me . It's embarrassing !

    ReplyDelete
  54. Old school sneakers have become very fashionable in the last few years in many places, not so sure about the plaid top though.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I was an immigrant and my mother refused to shell out $40 for some Hollister/American Eagle crap.I hated it at the time but now I'm so grateful. It's.It's ridiculous, you look like a fucking billboard and the quality of the clothes is shit, one wash would ruin them

    ReplyDelete
  56. I find all the pictures amusing lol but if i find someone wearing the same thing as i do, i think its kinda embarrassing. Haha good thing i havent been in that situation yett...

    ReplyDelete
  57. When I was in korea people were always judging what I wore lol. I only wore jeans, shirt and converse, some gangnam girls judged me so hard. The funny thing three of them were wearing same wedges xD

    ReplyDelete
  58. idt jordans are necessarily old school. folks have been wearing jordans for years, but the combination with khaki and plaid...idk...

    ReplyDelete
  59. i wrote this comment on the wrong time lol

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah like in the above picture with the women in green.I get a certain colour or print being trendy but there should be more attempts at incorporating it into different kinds of clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I dont know why my comment sounds koreaboo. About the fashion or the Korean's interest in other Asians? Then you think China or SEA has a better standard of fashion? lol
    It is also a reality that most of the Koreans are not really interested in China or SEA. It is so funny whenever I see the comment from those countries saying Korea is or Koreans are blah blah. For Koreans, they are the place to travel cheap but dangerous and the people are illegal immigrant or mail-ordered bride. That is the fact and reality.
    The Foreign(ers) for the Koreans are westerns America or western/northern europe. Take the reality LOL

  62. Uggs in general need to die.Hideous shoes and terrible for your feet

  64. I c that but my school has "dress code" soo...

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm sorry. If someone bullied my child over not having a $700 north face jacket, I'm going to find them and whoop that ass. I'm not going to have my kid bullied over not following a damn trend. That is ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
  66. !! my mom made me wear my sister's clothes from 90s china and i was so sad but now i just look special af in those elementary school photos

    ReplyDelete
  67. Kekekeke same here 😂😂😂😂😂

    ReplyDelete
  68. i think the oc was talking about regular street fashion, dress codes are a whole different story. i almost went to a private school when i was younger that required students to wear collared shirts and i thought i was going to lose my mind cause i was such a ~rebel~ whew. dodged a bullet.

    ReplyDelete
  69. i really love her giant caterpillar eyebrows so i try to use this reaction image whenever i get to sorry heh

    ReplyDelete
  70. I find it really embarrassing when someone wear the same thing as me. I just want to runaway and change my clothes. D:

    ReplyDelete
  71. in the summer it was so easy to pick out the korean men in the crowd.... birkenstocks, long sleeved shirts and cropped shorts

    ReplyDelete
  72. oh god that reminds me the tourists that come in Greece in summer

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think it depends what you buy. for american eagle i love their shoes and somehow i made my hoodies from hollister and abercrombie last forever and i wear them 24/7 in the winter.


    one brand that is overrated is zara. some of the clothes are bad and overpriced but i still love going there.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I've yet to change my style. Always baggy sweaters and jeans. So comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  75. These pictures are a little extreme, but Koreans are not very different from Italians, all young people wearing the same shoes, the same coats, the same backpacks, etc. The situation improves as adults, but is still an Italian characteristic...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Pshh we're supposed to wear collared shirts and its a good two months before I actually haul on one. My schools dress code policy is stupid because you can wear whatever if you have the right teachers

    ReplyDelete
  77. Lol they should look at Southern sorority girl fashion. It's notorious for being all the same. L or XL tee shirt in bright colors over Nike Tempo running shorts and Chacos or Nike Free shoes (if summer) or North Face jacket, Lululemon headband, tights-as-pants, ankle high socks, and Nike Free shoes or knee high leather boots in the winter. It's just so darn comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I remeber ms and hs THE MOMENT I saw someone wearing the same shirt or patterned short or whatever....i would hid the design...and if someone mentioned it i immediately wanted to go home and avoided that person. to think that u only fit in society if u wear the similar style nakes me cringe...it is soooo awkward to think about it.
    you don't have to stand out but the clothes YOU wear and what You chose so to me it feels like i have somehow done something wrong that someone else wore a similar thing

    ReplyDelete
  79. i'm an immigrant too actually. i just shopped at winners i think. the nearest american eagle type store was in the states (i live on the border) and since we didn't have official citizenship yet we couldn't drive there. plus they were more expensive like you said.


    so i always secretly wanted to dress in those types of clothes but never had them.


    now you'll never see me caught dead in those types of clothes and am completely anti-conformist and painfully unique.

    ReplyDelete
  80. My outfit is almost always all black it's the most simple style imo and I don't have to care about people wearing the same shirt haha

    ReplyDelete
  81. I honestly couldn't care less about what I'm wearing, is the cloths clean its enough for me. but if talking about fashion its better to wear cloths one feels comfortable in be it self esteem or physical.

  83. We need to talk about the bullying though.
    It's one thing if people choose to partake in the same trends, but bullying someone because they're not wearing a particular brand or following the crowd...

    ReplyDelete
  84. Not sure why some of you are acting like this is something that only happens in Korea. Obviously this isn't actually something that you'll commonly see on the street, but it happens in the U.S a lot too, for example California.

    For girls: High-wasted shorts, crop tops, plaid shirt around waist.
    For boys: Lame khaki pants, sleeveless striped tees and a variation of similar shoes.

    Sooo.

    ReplyDelete
  85. this happens in a lot of places, try California especially lol. home of the hype beasts.

    ReplyDelete
  86. who still uses "fuckboys" lol

    ReplyDelete
  87. Except in korea if you really went and scolded that child you'd be bullied and ostracized by that kid's mother and her circle of friends... really scarY lol

    ReplyDelete
  88. Just do the Fonzie, leather or pleather jacket, white t, and blue jeans. It never goes out of style

    ReplyDelete
  89. I wonder if they feel safer by wearing the same clothes. Are they afraid of being rejected. Are they afraid of being rejected for thinking different?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Ladies and gentlemen we have a doppelgänger in our midst

    ReplyDelete
  91. i'm questioning if you really went to korea atm or if you're just over exaggerating. this is a collage of a few isolated incidents, the same could happen by going to the mall somewhere in california lol, it's not like literally EVERYONE wears the same things.

    ReplyDelete
  92. it's just sad how parents work extra hard just for their daughters/sons to follow the latest trend, and for those who are being bullied because they are not "in".

    ReplyDelete
  93. Is it? I've never noticed something like this tbh. But it probably depends on where you've lived? It's more common in big cities i think? It's true that there are things that go viral tho, especially the shoes, at least where i grew up.

    ReplyDelete
  94. This is ......rediculous....

    ReplyDelete
  95. 90% of college girls at my school wear exactly same things. They wear big sized sorority shirts with sport shorts and source sandals. Meanwhile I wear pyjama to school sometimes without being shamed of myself hahahha

    ReplyDelete
  96. Same. Everyone kept asking me to go shopping to get some new clothes even though I told them I was perfectly fine with what I was wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  97. lol same its kinda embarrassing

    ReplyDelete
  98. Mrs. Sherlock HolmesMarch 26, 2015 at 4:00 PM

    this is why i dont follow trend... i wear what i want and what i likke

    ReplyDelete
  99. Winners is the shit, I used to get so many amazing shoes from them (I'm a size 10 so the struggle is real) and so many of my clothes from there have held up amazing.
    I used to get a lot of hand me downs from my cousins in the US and when we did go visit, we'd ransack TJ Maxx/Marshalls for all the good deals.
    I remember how embarrassed I used to be at the time but now I'm glad because I don't think my personal style would've developed the way it did if I hadn't had to be thrifty.

    ReplyDelete
  100. lol same, I used to wear my mother's kameezes and stuff from Pakistan, real 80's stuff.I looked fly as fuck in 6th grade lol

    Basically..


    Anyways, In the last pic I thought it was a school uniform until I realized it was this North Face jacket ... :'D
    I don't have money to buy new clothes every month anyways.. I like to combine my clothes differently and add a new thing every now and then to get new combinations? So..? Why always buy what everyone buys? :'D

    ReplyDelete
  104. stop being such a fuckboy

    ReplyDelete
  105. it's awkward if it's a lot of pepole at the same place wore the same thing ....

    ReplyDelete
  106. my mom always found winners too expensive - n -. i always shopped at... my sisters closets. i'm the youngest so hand me downs and value village were the main spots lol. now i am a power thrifter w/ amazing style though.

    ReplyDelete
  107. who still uses "hype beasts" lol

    ReplyDelete
  108. The north face jacket doesn't even look visually appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  109. "[+13, -0] Well students will bully you if you don't wear a $700 Northface jacket so of course parents will break their backs to buy their kids one" thats so stupid those jackets dont even look good you buy a better designer brand jacket for the same price

    ReplyDelete
  110. that's why I stopped going to H&M since 2years. I got tired of buying something, filling satisfied and as soon as I put it on I see girls wearing the exact same shit on the street

    ReplyDelete
  111. There is a poor one who wants to hide the fact XD

    ReplyDelete
  112. Those damn spine breakers! What’s going on? Are you falling behind on the trend?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Well among all the places i've lived in America -Northface is pretty prevalent and universal, just not all the exact same identical coat like in the picture above.

    ReplyDelete
  116. then what's the point, lol? good for the students, tho!

    ReplyDelete
  117. lots of guys where i live in canada like love khaki pants lol

    ReplyDelete
  118. So what is the problem? Even though they seem to lack of variety in your perspective there is nothing wrong or even better than SEA people who cannot pursue fashion becuz of low economic standard or religious reasonXD its a pity that the people here are trying to scold and teach koreans while most of koreans do not care abt you at all.especially China and SEA xd they are out of the korean sight.
    Chinese/SEA= illegal immigrant or mail ordered bride thats all
    the westerns here=OTAKU who do not get along with the mainstream lol

    That is the realityXD

    ReplyDelete
  119. that's what trends are about... And they're cool because they allow to some people to shine out.
    I get to see every day girls with high waist short jeans that more than a fashion statement is a crotch marker. But then I see a person wearing a leather jacket in a 35°C and I get blow away by them.
    It's a beautiful balance.

    ReplyDelete
  120. uh uh... I know that reference.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I don't see that style anymore either.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's not only about wearing the same, it's about the completely same feel everyone gives of. I don't say this to bring korea down or anything like that, it's just something I noticed that really took me off guard. And no it's really not the same as you find in teenage age where everybody wears the same kinda things.

    Also i'm not an annonymous person. If you really don't believe me then I could give you my blog link.

    I've been to korea 1.5 years ago and will visit again in a liitle more than a month.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Doesn't limit to clothing. Plastic surgery, make-up, hobbies, everything is about trends. Welcome to robotworld!

    ReplyDelete
  124. my heart is breaking! say no to khaki, my brothers from the north!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I think that is not what SEA people could mention lol Koreans do not care or want to get the attention from the developing countries sending illegal immigrant or mail ordered bride to Korea. People need to Look back the fashion of your people Imao

    ReplyDelete
  126. That's my goal for next year. So I shall be going shopping for the most 'fashionable' plaid or spongebob pajamas I can find.

    ReplyDelete
  127. sorry but I honestly don't get what your talking about

    ReplyDelete
  128. I don't expect much from the youngest ones since it can take times to build your own personnality, but adults? seriously?

    ReplyDelete
  129. I notice this too in Pinocchio. Students were hyped about an expensive bag. I didn't know it's actually like this in real life in Korea. I really hate it when I see someone with the same clothes as me >.<

    ReplyDelete
  130. american eagle, aeropostale, and hollister? those and blue note clothes were what everyone wore when i was in middle/high school lol we might as well of had a school uniform xD

    gap hoodie sweaters with the big front pocket and "gap" printed on the front were the "in" thing when i was in elementary school, like the light blue one is the same as the one i had x'D but that was 12 years ago lol...

  134. In Venezuela, specially in december, you get to see A FREAKING LOT of kids dressed like that... A polo shirt (or an imitation) khaki or jeans shorts and adidas shoes.

  135. well.. i don't think any country has supreme individuality above another in fashion like even here in sweden every shop basically sells the same things...

    that is except Japan of course... their fashion is really something else... so individual...

  136. ugh im sick of north face, most college girls wear north face jackets,leggings or sweatpants that are tucked either in uggs or rainboots....

    ReplyDelete
  137. like countries like canada and the usa are any different :/

    everyone wears blue jeans, and every other girl wears black yoga pants and so many guys wear khaki pants.... :///

  138. But not Caucasian. You need to look at the fashion of the country your ethnicity comes from :D rather than judging the Korean fashion. Koreans are not interested in the "coloured" opinion

  139. where i live a girl would die if she finds someone with the same blouse lol idk how they can dress so similar, i guess the culture iss too different, even if I like kpop I still dont like korean's mindset at all

    ReplyDelete
  140. agreed, it's not like the average person outside of korea is very unique in their fashion. most people like to blend in to a certain extent.

  141. I think AE actually has pretty decent quality, although I also refused to wear any clothes that just had the brand name on them.

  143. how come when people talk about fashion trend they left out hairstyles... I'm the only one who lives in a country where EVERY GUY tried the Macklemore hair cut?

    ReplyDelete
  144. and so many girls with straight hair with side bangs

  145. 4. [+13, -0] Well students will bully you if you don't wear a $700
    Northface jacket so of course parents will break their backs to buy
    their kids one


    Why doesn't the government just have standard issue uniform and save everyone the bother of trying to keep up with trends.


    OR ALTERNATIVELY:

  146. That is true, however I believe everyone puts a diff spin on it. Ya know. There are so many styles, the possibility are endless.

    ReplyDelete
  147. and everyone uses an iphone or a samsung. and everyone shops in h&m or forever 21.

    ReplyDelete
  148. ... I remember back in 2007/8 when I found it so ridiculous how all those same-clothed emo girls here where I live had "BiTcH d0n't c0Py mY sTyLe" in their online profiles

    ReplyDelete
  149. or you mean... average peoples style were all similar? because it's like that in all countries.. like just because the average person in korea was stylish by your standards doesn't mean they're considered a stylish person in korea. in countries like the usa everyone wears jeans and tshirt, they're all dressed virtually the same but are they considered stylish?

    ReplyDelete
  150. I have gone on some Korean clothing online store everything is so pretty. I believe they are some of the best dress out there. However, you seem them on red carpets you go WTF is that style.

    ReplyDelete
  151. or the ombré thing, or the skrillex haircut...

    ReplyDelete
  152. Forever 21 and H&M are bomb, u shush. Interesting side note Forever 21 is owed by Koreans. :0 Someone correct me if im wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  153. in my 3 years of uni i never saw anyone wearing the same clothes as me. thank god for that. i would hate that.


    i guess this is why celebs are paid a lot for their cfs because their fans are willing to buy the same thing

  155. racist troll >_>

    europeans are no more stylish then everyone else, it's just for some reason their fashion preferences is held as better then everyone elses. what's fashionable versus whats not fashionable is arbitrary....

  156. Natalie Kills a very original artist.

  157. I don't get trends tbh, they're always repeating anyway, and why whould I want to have the same item everyone has?! That's one reason why I prefer small shops to the big clothing chains
    And what's pretty is pretty... Most of my fashion inspiration is retro anyway

    ReplyDelete
  158. For that (or less with sales) you could wear Moncler or Bogner.

    ReplyDelete
  159. guys just ignore this asshole. hopefully they're blocked or something. obviously they're got nothing better to do then troll around the internet. just pity them for having no friends and obviously a bad upbringing.

    ReplyDelete
  160. lol i was watching a japanese travel show and they were in canada and there was like a montage of all the girls wearing black yoga pants and they even interviewed some of the girls about why the pants are so popular X'D

  162. Everyone? Maybe I'm hanging with the wrong crowd Cuz I'd debate you'll see more yoga pants, tights, sweats and joggers over jeans. But heh that's just the people I see around me

  163. american eagle is def better then hollister and aeropostale

    ReplyDelete
  164. I didn't know that before but you are right it is an American brand started and owned by South Koreans.

  166. up above in the post most of them aren't actually wearing the exact same things, different cuts and slightly different shades. but they're all wearing same styles, like cali girls.

    ReplyDelete
  167. lots of japanese also dress similarly, like i think everywhere the average person likes to blend in to a certain extent.

    ReplyDelete
  168. i was just giving a random example lol xD i picked jeans since both genders wear them

    ReplyDelete
  169. ... now I just remembered that when I was 10 years old and changed schools the day before the first school day there I've seen a girl I didn't know wearing the same dress I was planning to wear and literally walked up to her asking which school she went to to make sure it wasn't my new school xD
    Also ridiculous, but such a difference to everyone buying the same stuff deliberately xD

    ReplyDelete
  170. I mean they're really comfortable I'll give them that but it's kinda disturbing when for everyone girl wearing actual pants, 15 are wearing yoga pants haha

    ReplyDelete
  171. and they all had black lion hair with neon blue or pink lmao

    ReplyDelete
  172. Since when are 1920's striped bathing suits back in style? I know that some Koreans wear an overabundance of clothes on the beach and in the water for modesty and sun protection reasons, but those will give you weird tan lines even with sunscreen!

    ReplyDelete
  173. yup! they started in the fashion district in downtown los angeles and grew from there!

    ReplyDelete
  174. where r u? in brisbane it ne er gets cold enough to wear north face jacket. thats so ugly and unflattering. i would only wearing on ski slopes or hiking.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I think those are dresses... I'm starting to believe that koreans don't swim in the beach, that they just go for the sand and the tan.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Those look like the same bunch of girls in the pics though. Staged?

    ReplyDelete
  177. Gotcha. Style and fashion is so weird Cuz I'll wear high socks and sneakers to school with a tank and scarf and a button down shirt around my waist. No one can tell me I'm not on fleek haha but to others I prob look like a hot mess

    ReplyDelete
  178. All North Face jackets? Looks just like 90% of all high school students in NY

  179. It's like

  180. I'm sure it happens nearly everywhere? I know in my school Herschel backpacks and boat shoes is part of the apparel for almost every guy. While girls all wear those black twisty chokers, tights and crop tops. It makes your eyes sore after a while.
    Korea seems a bit extreme with trends though...

    ReplyDelete
  181. The worst thing that you bought that stuff before a sale.

    ReplyDelete
  182. The white shoes in the first picture.... .
    Almost every girl in Hongdae was wearing the same pair of those white shoes last summer.

    ReplyDelete
  183. 9. [+3, -0] I lived abroad for a long time and recently got back to
    Korea and I was so surprised at how similarly everyone dressed...


    I'll say it again it's really hard to image if you don't see/feel it for yourself and NO I'm not talking about average people dressing the similar^^

    ReplyDelete
  184. Lol I find this hilarious and ironic. I live in America and love ordering Korean and japanese clothes online. I guess if I lived in Korea, i'd blend right the heck in. Excluding me being black.

    ReplyDelete
  185. i'm kind of the person who loves a thing and when everyone stars loving it too, i get over it- even in kpop music, i was an exo huge fan, but when every one in my school loved them , i just walked away -_-!

    ReplyDelete
  186. This is funny to see after that Seoul fashion week article on kpkf but anyway I think it's part trend and part the fact that some of that stuff you can get dirt cheap in subway shops and stuff. The trick is paring common items with other pieces in ways that are unique to you.

    ReplyDelete
  187. which is why i laugh so hard when white girls make fun of asians... like girl you know you are being clothed by and supporting the business of the very people you're making fun of??

    ReplyDelete
  188. Yeah they pretty much wore similar outfits everywhere, like everyone is sponsored by the same company lol

    ReplyDelete
  189. That's so true, I hate when trends line up with my style because out of nowhere everyone outside is dressed like me. I usually just switch up my look until the trend dies down.
