Finally, finally, I have time to sit myself down and do a proper STYLE RANT post. I have been wanting to do this for months now but now that school is officially out of the way for a few weeks, I figured its time to do so.
As everyone knows, its winter in the Northern Hemisphere which means that South Korea is experiencing winter right now. And THAT means boys in sweaters and coats, yummmm. Winter fashion is somthing I look forward to all year because I live in the tropical and sunny Singapore and the closest we come to winter is torrential rain during monsoon season. Since coats and knits are hardly the best things to wear here I shall satisfy myself with browsing through press and fan taken photos as well as online shops.
I don’t know about you but I absolutely love knit sweaters. The knit makes the wearer look more slender and it basically fits just about every body type. They’re not seen much on kpop though because cable knits are used mainly when performers have a genteel concept such as with ballad songs which there aren’t alot of in winter. Kpop artists usually go for christmas patterned sweaters such as the one I featured on Luhan and Saint Laurent a few posts back. The only people I know (or care about) wearing knits on stage are the EXO members who are currently promoting Miracles in December. They also received first place twice for that song, so congrats boys!
EXO opt for a monotonous color scheme to fit in with the mellow and soothing theme of their song but why shouldn’t you wear other colors right? Here are some other jumpers from several Korean brands that I personally adore.

With the exception of Liful which has been worn by numerous korean stars such as EXO, none of these brands are particularly well-known so I hope that you check these brands out! Out of all these sweaters, my favourites have to be the Lomort one and the MODIFIED Sky Blue one. The oatmeal and navy go so well together for the Lomort sweater and its perfect for overly skinny guys who want to look abit more manly coughkyungsoocough and the sky blue is such a beautiful color, MODIFIED did a good job picking it.
Till next time, then!

I’m usually ok with what the China line picks out to wear but sometimes I go all “oh, ok. the China side is back”. Not that there is anything wrong with that, though. Its just very distinctive. I notice a lot of mainland Chinese like to wear bright/animal prints.
Well hello there,
I guess you have somehow suffered a terrible bout of misfortune to land here. This blog will be yet another addition to my five or other blogs because for some reason I see the need to blog about everything of different topics in different blogs.
I’m going to make this my kpop misc blog, because, well, I don’t want to plague my other blog with unnecessary and already unhealthy feels.
Besides loving idols and their never-ending antics, I have fallen in love with their fashion. I love the fact that we kpop fans already have a term for dressing up at the airport – 공항페션 or airport fashion. In fact, more than looking at the faces of idols (especially my non-biases), I look at what they’re wearing. I know, I know, some of them have stylists to style them up but I don’t really care because airport fashion is amazing.
So I guess I should start with who and what I like so that I don’t disappoint you.
First of all, my kpop biases would be DMTN’s Simon, 2PM’s Junho, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, EXO’s Lay, Kris and Chen, BTS’ J-Hope and V and BlockB’s Ukwon and B-Bomb. BUT my k-fashionistas would be 2PM’s Junho, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, EXO’s D.O, Kai and Kris and BigBang’s TOP. Yes, I am a girl and I guess i should really be looking at how girls dress instead but i…don’t…really…care???
I guess I would say I prefer a casual but sophisticated style. So my favourite dressers would definitely be 2PM’s Junho, I swear, I have never seen one bad airport pic of that boy. The one who skirts on the line here would be EXO-M’s Kris. I love the boy to death and I absolutely love that he’s interested in fashion but his fashion sense sometimes make me wince and if you have not seen him in his floppy hats and matching graphic sweat set, I would tell you to not even go there.
The surprising one would be EXO-K’s D.O. He wouldn’t be first choice for a lot of people, whether it comes to his voice or visuals, definitely not his height. In fact, in EXO he is apparently the worst dresser? I disagree with that. He doesn’t try hard when it comes to fashion, certainly, he sticks to blacks and classics. He isn’t as flashy as Tao or Kris but he (unconsciously?) looks the best because he looks comfortable and still impeccable which not a lot of people can pull off.
I guess I’m going to use this blog to talk about fashion I guess and maybe reviews on what my biases (or whoever I feel like blogging about) wear? Also I might share wishlists from time to time and they’re just going to remain as wishes I guess.
