Some Must-have Korean Fashion Items

Posted: Dec 16 2013

With Psy’s Gangnam Style as a veritable Trojan horse, millions of people began paying attention to Korean pop music and emulating the clothes worn by their newly discovered pop idols. Fortunately, online stores like Pancoat make it easier than ever to achieve the look favored by stars like 2NE1, Girls’ Generation, and Big Bang. If you’re overwhelmed by the options though, here are a few must-have items to set you on your way:


Yes, winter in South Korea can be chilly but that’s not the only reason to wear a hoodie. This jacket is popular with both K-Pop singers and their adoring fans so you’ll want to buy one for yourself. Choose one that has large but cute animal designs to really make a statement.

Oversized Headphones

South Koreans love their music and you’ll find many teenagers importing oversized Beats by Dre headphones for over ₩1 million. If you live in the United States, however, they’re readily available at department stores at considerably cheaper prices than Koreans pay.

A Slim Figure

Okay, you can’t actually buy a slim figure online or in retail stores, but you can certainly achieve it with dieting and exercise. Koreans are fashion-conscious and nothing shows off their trendy clothes better than a beautiful body. If you have a bit of a paunch, you can wear a belt to draw attention away from it.
