K-Pop Fashion

K Pop Style!

K-Pop or Korean Pop is a fun genre of music dominated by pop, dance, r&b, hip hop that has a big electro vibe to it.

Girls Generation formed in 2007
It's funky fashion and snazzy style has made it a cool trend to be a part of.

Take a look at this Girls Generation video. It has had over 75 million views

Let's look closer at some of the bands..

Girls Generation
Chanel are fans and used some of the girls in their pop-up store in Tokyo

Girls Generation are a nine-member group formed in 2007.

Lots of fashion flavours in their Boys video starting off with a more grown-up couture vibe
The band performed this song in America on Letterman's show as they went all out for an international hit.

Sunny from the band with her Lady Gaga tribute hairstyle
Sunny has a role in the animation Koala Kid

The colours and patterns on these award winners are really something.

Girls Generation earned over $100 million in 2011

T-ara's name comes from tiara and they aim to be queens of the pop world

T-ara started in 2009 as a 5 member group but are now up to 7 girls. They trained for 3 years before their first single release.

T-ara do an 'Usher' and head to the club for this song.  

This is a more natural style that you don't often see in K-Pop shoots which can be over-themed and a bit too uniformy

Sistar are a four member group started in 2010
There is a Little Mix tone to these outfits
Sistar need a tights sponsorship like Jessie J with legs like theirs

They have moved their style on to a more grown-up vampish vibe as seen on their latest release Alone


4Minute are amazing and one of our favourites. They have the best hairstyles and their style has more depth and detail in it.

I My Be Mine is a fantastic, fun song. 

Salute the military look in this video.

This look is from their latest single 'Volume UP'

Its a big tribute to Dolce & Gabbana's scarf print SS2012 collection


G.NA is solo artist Gina Choi. Born in Canada she made her debut in 2010.

This is her song Black & White which was a smash hit in 2011

Gina's fashion has a Rock Chick vibe to it.

She freaking loves high boots

Checkout the blonde mermaid stylee hair

Let's hear it for the boys...

Big Bang

Big Bang made a big noise at the MTV EMAs by beating Britney Spears to Best Worldwide Act

Girl group SNE1 helped them make Lollipop a smash hit


The guys are trendsetters too. This band is Shinee. We really like the tartan groove as it has a Vivienne Westwood and McQ flavour to it.

Who knew metallic trousers were in on guys?


B2ST or Beast have a great emo flavour to their music. Lots of black clothing and eye shadow add a gothic influence to the band. 

A great compliment to their style is that Sex & The City stylist Patricia Field loves it. 

The single Shock is from their second mini-album and has 9 million Youtube views


K-Pop's influence is getting bigger by the day. In the spring 20,000 fans attended the first ever K-Pop festival in Europe.
Psy recently got to number 1 and has had over 400m Youtube views

A good example is Grime's Vanessa video which she describes as "a real K-Pop influenced video"
