The Rise of K-Pop and Korean Fashion

Which singer holds the Guinness World Record for most YouTube views? If you’re betting it’s BeyoncĂ©, Lady Gaga, or teen-icon Justin Bieber, think again. With 1.8 billion views as of December 2013 (and growing steadily, no doubt) the record holder is none other than K-Pop sensation Psy, thanks to his ubiquitous hit “Gangnam Style.” Indeed, Gangnam Style was one of the biggest pop songs of 2012, peaking and staying at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks and selling 4.5 million copies.

Of course, K-Pop has long had a foothold in neighboring Asian countries, and it was only time before it exploded into the North American mainstream. Long before Psy danced his way to pop superstardom, acts like Wonder Girls and Super Junior were already setting teenage hearts aflame in the East. K-Pop’s popularity can be attributed to its upbeat and contemporary sound reminiscent of other genres like dance, electro, and trance. Yet its coup de grace is perhaps the catchy choruses whose simple melodies allow them to easily be memorized even by people who don’t speak Korean.

It’s not just music that people are loving, however. People also emulate the wardrobes of their favorite K-Pop singers, much the same way that people style themselves after their favorite Western pop stars. What’s more, the rise of online K-Pop fashion stores make this look even more accessible to the masses.

Tips for the Ladies: Dressing for a Kpop Concert

Korean pop sensations like Girls Generation, Super Junior, and Rain have taken the world by storm! That being said, it is not difficult to find a store offering Kpop clothing and the latest fashion trends. If you want to dress right for a concert, here are some tips:

Keep in mind that every concert is different. It would be best to dress according to the location of the event. If you're attending a standing concert, dress in light, compact layers. Cotton jersey shirts with exotic prints are your best bet.

You can expect it to be crowded and rowdy, which only means one thing — sweat. While you’re thinking it’s ideal to avoid long-sleeved shirts, there are various styles that are cozy enough to wear as you party the night away. Make a statement by wearing loud designs with vibrant colors and cute prints, whilst remaining comfortable.

Also, since you'll be standing and waiting around a lot, wear comfortable shoes. Resist the urge to wear heels and opt for sneakers, fancy flats, or ankle boots instead. Don't be afraid to mix it up and throw in your own ideas as well.

Many online Kpop fashion stores offer a wide selection of quality and affordable clothes, so you too can look like a superstar during the concert. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find just the kind of clothing suited to your style. Hope you have fun at your next Kpop concert!
