[Video] The Trends of Hip-Hop Fashion in Korea
As time passes, music isn’t the only thing changing, but also the fashion style along with the beats.
Mnet’s Wide Entertainment News sought to find out how hip-hop fashion in Korea has changed over the years.
In the early 1990s, artists like Seo Taiji and Boys wore clothes that were comfortably oversized like giant shirts and baggy jeans.
In the second half of the 1990s leading up to 2000, the hip-hop style faded out in color, resorting to black and decorated more with shining metal jewelry as seen through Drunken Tiger or Jinusean.
However, the trend nowadays is to look organized and neat with various kinds of dress suits.
So what does the recent fashion style say about the artist’s music?
Like their appearance, the music is a lot more organized and has neater rhythm and beats.
Epik High’s Run has a smooth beat with a hopeful message tagging along.
LeeSsang’s Ballerino contains a very lyrical melody that has a story behind each stanza.
The group has also once stated, “If we can’t make really good music, we have this mindset that we shouldn’t release albums.”
Likewise, Dynamic Duo, Simon D, Verbal Jint, Baechigi, and other hip-hop artists of the present have a smooth flow of lyrics mixed with a catchy, easy-to-listen-to beat, somewhat similar to the clean and neat outfit they wear on stage.
But despite the constantly changing hip-hop fashion, what′s more important than the fashion is that hip-hop music is and will continue to be live a long as the fans keep on supporting and spotlighting it.
