WILD WEST INFLUENCE IN KPOP
Since I am into KPop, I tend to observe and study the fashion influence in KPop. I couldn’t help but notice how KPop adopted this huge fashion trend. Must say kpop industry isn’t holding back even one bit! They not only incorporated it into the styling of outfits but also in hairstyles! Yes! I guess didn’t see any other industry taking this trend inspiration with so much intensity!
Mullets are huge trend in Kpop right now and Kpop idols aren’t shying away from sporting it! JB of GOT7 sported a mullet for the group’s recent comeback album – Eyes On You. In fact GOT7 can be seen wearing wild west inspired outfit as one of the looks for their Look music video. You can see Baekhyun of EXO in a mullet for Ko Ko Bop, Th8 (Minghao) of Seventeen & Mino of WINNER sporting mullet and how can I forget the iconic G-Dragon mullet! As I mentioned earlier, BTS was seen Calvin Klein’s wild west collection advert. And fans are speculating that Taehyung (also known as V) of BTS is growing a mullet for their comeback!
