NewJeans definitely brought some color to the performance with the outfits, but many pointed out that the looks were unflattering, while some even compared them to clown outfits with the shapes and designs.

Although the looks were innovative and definitely made the members stand out, many netizens criticized the styling of NewJeans.

While many Korean netizens on forums couldn’t stop laughing at the looks, international fans shared their thoughts about how the looks didn’t give the members justice for their performance and visuals.

While many criticized the looks, others explained that although they were not the best, it seems as if the company has tried to put the members in “age-appropriate” looks. In particular, when the group first debuted, netizens raised concerns about the outfits the young members were wearing.

Although they might not have been the expected looks, netizens believe that they fit not only the ages of the members but also the Y2K look they have been embodying since the group debuted.

K-Pop idols are always judged by the standards of their outfits. With such a high-profile and successful debut, it isn’t surprising that NewJeans’ looks are always being watched by netizens. It seems like the stylists have yet to find the balance between the members’ idol image and their age.
