On October 24, Lim Ji Yeon appeared on VOGUE KOREA‘s YouTube channel and introduced the items in her bag.


She shared that she brings around her everyday belongings as much as possible. These everyday items included perfume, Tiger Balm, jelly candies, protein snacks, foundation, health supplements, a hair scrunchie, and even a scalp gua sha massager.


One of the items that she was proud to introduce was her AirPods.


Her AirPods case was a red suitcase, and she excitedly told the story of how she found the case in the underground shopping area of Gangnam station.

Recently, I lost one of my AirPods on the plane, and so I urgently bought new AirPods not even a week ago. Sometimes, I take the subway, and when I went to the underground shopping area of Gangnam station, I saw this really nice case! So I really bought it.

Gangnam station’s underground shopping area is a popular place where people can shop for clothes, accessories, technology, and more. It connects to the subway train and, therefore, is always full of people walking around.

Her excitement about how she bought an AirPods case at a subway station—something non-celebrities do all the time—showed how it was a thrilling moment for her as a top star. When asked if people recognized her on the subway, she replied that nobody noticed her.

Maybe because I cover myself up when I’m out and about, but they didn’t recognize me. Even when I stood in the store and bought this, no one recognized me.
