Current K-Pop Idols as the Face of School Uniform Companies

In Korea, students choose which brand they should get their uniforms from depending on the K-Pop Idols representing the brand.

A majority of Korea’s advertisements feature a celebrity as the face of their campaign. But how do you choose who to represent you? Just as fast food joints and wireless companies only hire the most popular K-Pop idols to be the faces of their brand, school uniform companies only hire the daesae idol groups who most appeal to the young teen demographic. You can consider the opportunity as a stepping stone, as we’ve seen plenty of popular idols represent a uniform brand while in their teens-early 20’s and then move onto brands of other industries that fit the trend of older age groups. Their ‘young, fresh’ image is best utilized in the beginning of their careers.

Made In Korea: K-Pop Idols’ Favorite “Gudak Cam” App

Leave it to the ladies of K-Pop to stay on-trend when it comes to social media. Not only do they keep their social networks completely well-managed, but their photo editing is on point, right down to the coolest of filters.

Lately, we’ve been noticing that more and more of our favorite idols are taking pictures that appear as if they were almost taken from an old school disposable camera. However, we were totally shocked to find out that that wasn’t the case at all – they were actually all taken with the latest Korean camera app, Gudak Cam.

Gudak Cam

The name of the app comes from the Korean word ‘gudagdali’ – a term for outdated items, and the interface of the app itself looks as if it was taken directly from a 90’s disposable camera. The experience of using the app is just like a disposable camera as well.

Users of the app are only given 24 photos they’re allowed to take with the app every 12 hours. Unlike other camera apps, they are not able to preview the image or see how it came out right away. Pictures also take up to three full days to ‘develop’ into your camera roll, meaning you get the same thrill of anticipation you experience on family vacations back in the day.

We’ve been having a lot of fun seeing how our favorite idols were able to play with the app considering its strict analog-esque parameters. Here are our favorite Gudak Cam images from girl groups GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, and TWICE. Doesn’t the vintage effect make them look seriously stunning?

Just imagine that you bump into your favorite celebrities or even bias! Heart beat goes faster and you might want to take a photo of them. However, even though they are famous celebrities themselves, it’s pretty rude to take a picture of them without any permission. Because they are the same human beings who have portrait rights just like us. Thus, Kpopmap doesn’t use photos taken by sasaeng fan, which means fans who usually stalk even private life of idols or celebrities. Therefore, we make you sure of that all photos here are from official articles, celeb’s acquaintances and staffs close to celebs.
