Best K-Pop Music Video Fashion: September Releases

September came to an end, and the fashion in the K-Pop music video releases for this month really left us wanting more. Most music videos released had fashion that looked very dated and out of style. However, September also saw a very fun comeback from 2PM and the debut of a new sub-unit, SPICA S., where they both showcased really cool fashion. Check out our picks for the best music video fashion from the September releases.

SPICA S. – Give Your Love

SPICA S. is the new sub-unit from SPICA, with Park Juhyun, Park Narae, Yang Jiwon, and Kim Bohyung. They debuted with Give Your Love, and not only are the song and video sexy, but also the styling of the girls. There are some parts where they wear lingerie and show a lot of skin, but it’s done tastefully and not vulgar at all. Each member is styled differently in their individual shots, and Jiwon wears a beautiful pastel color cutout dress. When they all are wearing the nude coat dresses, they look so sexy with the thigh high stockings. If you look closely, each member has a different design, and they look so good!

BTOB – You’re So Fly

BTOB came back with You’re So Fly, and it’s one of their most fun comebacks yet. The video has very colorful sets, and the fashion in it is very fun. The boys are dressed in urban clothes that feature different prints. From KTZ to Saint Laurent, the members look very cool throughout the music video. The stylist definitely had a lot of fun with the styling and complimented each BTOB member very well.

Kidoh- Taxi On The Phone

Kidoh from Topp Dogg released his solo song Taxi On The Phone this month. The video features his band mate Sangdo and comedian and Roommate cast member Lee Guk Joo as the female lead. Even though Kidoh only wears three outfits in the music video, they are styled very well. Two of the ensembles are classic men’s suits in which the stylist added statement accessories that gave a very unique look. All the cameos are great, especially Lee Guk Joo; she looks so fashionable with that high waist black skirt and white blouse.

2PM- Go Crazy

2PM came back with an amazing music video, styling, song, and choreography. Their comeback song Go Crazy really gave 2PM’s stylist a carte blanche to do really fun looks. The stylist was able to go crazy with their outfits and each outfit really portrays each member’s goofy personality. Even though Taecyeon is wearing the most simple outfit, his tennis shoes are amazing. He is wearing Raf Simons for ADIDAS and they are to die for. Then if you look at the party version for this song the stylist kept the fun vibe and craziness with their outfits. My favorite look is Junho with that holographic varsity jacket. Who wouldn’t want it in their closet?

TROY- Why Are We?

TROY had one of the best stylings in this month’s music video releases in K-Pop. Their music video for Why Are We? even gave us ‘90s boy bands nostalgia. The talented guys of TROY gave off a feeling of time travelling when they wore the all white outfits. It reminded us of Backstreet Boys on their Millenium album. TAnd when they’re all are styled differently, everything still looks cohesive.

Kanto and Chang Woo have the best stylings on the video; they look so handsome and cool. Take a very close look at each member, their hair styles are amazing –especially Jae Woon. He looks so manly with his hair slick back! TROY has many close ups where you can appreciate even the slightest detail in their outfits.

6 Best K-Pop School Uniform Concept Music Videos

K-Pop idols make some of the best models for Korean school uniform ads, so it’s not surprising when they rock the student look in their music videos. Some artists, like f(x) and Infinite, are typically featured in brand campaigns, and this is not only because of their visual factor.

More often than not, the idols chosen are of student age, or close to, for that matter. Plus, since K-Pop’s main demographic is teenagers, the student concept is perfect. Some idols’ stylists take the literal route, wearing actual school uniforms but styling them a bit cuter, while others take a more editorial route, styling high-fashion clothes that look like uniforms.

But whichever might the course they take be, the school uniform concept is a cute yet polished look that transcends time and trends. Take a look at these six music videos that perfectly employ the school uniform concept.

1. EXO – Growl

Despite the student look not being innovative, it’s now automatically associated with EXO because of their Growl music video and promotional activities. Growl is to EXO what Sorry, Sorry is to Super Junior, and along with that staple comes the uniforms. For this music video, stylists went the costume route, not using actual fashion pieces (other than the Puma sneakers) nor real uniforms, but designed pieces specifically for each member. Of course, they made sure to give each guy different looks within the same concept, like Tao’s sleeveless blazer, the various print ties, or Baekhyun’s red snapback, to make it cohesive.

Growl’s styling works because even though they’re costumes and altered versions of uniforms, they don’t seem forced or gimmicky. The suits were tailored impeccably, and as mentioned before, even though they all appear the same as a whole, they are not. No member looks just as or similar to other members, making the overall styling flawlessly effortless.

2. BTS – Boy in Luv

When BTS’ Boy in Luv came out, the first music video it was compared to because of the styling was Growl. But other than the fact that EXO’s came prior and they also used uniforms,Boy in Luv is far from being a copy.

Even if you’re only fairly acquainted with BTS, you know that their brand is the ghetto goth hip hop style, so it’s a given that their stylists dress them in mostly black and white clothes all the time. That’s exactly the case with Boy in Luv, where they wear minimal ensembles (black and white, skinny tie, and fitted trousers). And in order to avoid a high fashion look, the stylists opted to go a more realistic route that stayed true to their rougher, school thug idol concept. They achieved this by wearing pleather applications on their clothing (like Jimin’s button-down) and lots of guyliner, and accessorizing with chains and earrings à la Shut Up Flower Boy Band.

Furthermore, the actress’ ensemble is a very grunge meets Chanel look, which is the highlight of the video. The contrast between the tailored blazer with the white lining and crest and the tartan printed skirt and tie, was a great interpretation of a fashion look as a costume, rather than a student costume.

3. f(x) – Rum Pum Pum Pum

And since we’re on the tartan print route, let’s talk about f(x)’s Rum Pum Pum Pum, where stylists actually used Korean brand pushBUTTON’s FW 2013 pieces on the girls. This is a great example of stylists using high fashion pieces in order to give a normal concept an editorial spin.

Of course, this is only one look within a music video that featured multiple colorful looks, but the school girl one is definitely the focus point. Tartan is immediately associated with Scottish kilts, but the way the stylists dressed f(x) gave it an avant garde interpretation of school uniforms. Stylists further complemented the look by accessorizing the girls with thigh high stockings, knee high socks, platform shoes and sneakers, and for a more literal reference, Sulli’s “Geek” crop top written in varsity font. Moreover, Amber wearing an outfit more typically interpreted for guys makes the schoolgirl concept come to a full circle, showing range in the stylists’ work.

4. A Pink – Mr. Chu

For Mr. Chu, A Pink’s stylists played with the music video’s plot more than the previous ones and didn’t just use one school uniform look, but two. The first is a simple black and white minimal look, with button-downs, knee high stockings, and skinny ties, which contrasted perfectly with the bright colors in the background and props. The other one is a Blair Waldorf inspired preppy-cute look where they mixed in some navy blue with the whites and black to further accentuate their innocently feminine concept which they are known for.

These lasts ones were more versatile and different for every A Pink member, as opposed to their other looks, where they look more alike than not.

5. Akdong Musician
Give Love

The uniform seen in Akdong Musician’s Give Love were far more conservative than any others on this list, and that’s probably because of Soo Hyun’s age. However, miniskirts and tight blouses are not synonymous with style, and the knee-high a-line skirt, the overall dress, and the thin ribbon bows show that a more conservative approach also looks good.

Soo Hyun and the actress’ style are a more whimsical version of a school uniform, and the grey and royal blue pieces fit perfectly with the music video’s use of color. The actor’s look is also a winner, because even though it’s simple and doesn’t include accessories, it’s clean, refreshing, and doesn’t take too much attention from his co-stars. The three looks used reflect an innocent concept, but the stylists made sure not to make them boring.

6. MYNAME – Baby I’m Sorry

Since MYNAME’s Baby I’m Sorry’s music video is like a mini drama, their uniforms had to be more realistic, and thus, the same for all members since it wasn’t a musical performance. And in contrast with BTS or EXO, MYNAME’s stylists incorporated color to their looks and stayed away from black. The striped blue and yellow ties together with the red sneakers gave cool pops of color to an otherwise dull school uniform. Furthermore, the mismatch of these colors and patterns with the gray khakis reflect a more realistic take on how a regular boy would style his uniform. But since mismatching colors and patterns are in trend, the stylist paired them in a way that didn’t result in disaster.
