We all know that South Koreans absolutely love expensive and trendy things. Just look at their fashion scene and take a stroll around Hongdae and Gangnam. It’s not uncommon to find several people dressed in luxury clothing brands from top to bottom, blinged out in outfits and jewelry that probably costs as much as most people’s monthly rent, or perhaps even more in some cases. Those guys who plaster their bodies with Balenciagas, Yeezys, Off White, Vetements, Luis Vuitton, and other ridiculously expensive designer labels, you’ll run into at least a few good number of them on a daily basis if you live in Seoul, South Korea.
So besides the name value of these brands and the South Korean people’s innate interest in expensive fashion, who sets these trends for them within their nation?
There a few that instantly come to mind, but no one does it better than BIGBANG member G-Dragon. Which is why netizens have been buzzing about online asking for him to hurry up and return to society because the current fashion trend in South Korea has stopped with the Balenciaga Triple S sneakers, yes those big fat ugly dad shoes.
“Hurry up and get discharged G-Dragon. The trend stopped with the triple s and isn’t moving forward.”
“I want to see G-Dragon wearing AirPods. Would be so dope.”
“Wow yeah, I can picture him wearing customized red ones.”
“Wow..Just imagining it…in red..and making them glow.”
“I miss G-Dragon…Wish he’d hurry up and get discharged.”
“Triple S were really something new,,”
“When does G-Dragon get discharged..”
“Hurry up and guide us…the sunlight is strong at the moment (an expression used to indicate in need of guidance, a parasol providing shade against strong heat and sunlight)
“We need you to guide us seriously…. The sunlight felt so strong today.”
