Although Korean society can be quite conservative, K-Pop idols are finding a way to break out of that mold and showcase that they can be beautiful, sexy, and classy at the same time. One of the recent trends that have both shocked and impressed netizens is the “Visible underwear” trend.
Two idols who have rocked the trend but in completely different ways are BLACKPINK‘s Lisa and IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung.
On the surface, both idols couldn’t be more different. While both extremely talented, Lisa is the group’s rapper and dancer, while Wonyoung is IVE’s vocalist and visual.
Even in their style, the two idols couldn’t be more different. BLACKPINK’s Lisa has a more unconventional style that works perfectly with her image, ranging from urban, sexy, and edgier compared to other female idols.
Wonyoung is known for a more “regal” style and has been compared to a Princess with feminine colors, designs, and sparkles.
Yet, they both confidently managed to pull off the “visible underwear” trend but in their own way.
BLACKPINK’s Lisa caught the attention of fans in 2022 when the group was teasing fans with their “Shut Down” poster. As expected, Lisa looked phenomenal in an unconventional outfit that was cool and sexy.
Despite all the members looking flawless, Lisa particularly gained attention after netizens noticed that the idol was rocking the “visible underwear” trend. Pairing the look with denim skirt, mesh crop top and cropped-puffer added an edge to the style.
She was wearing the Thai brand PONY STONE and served steaming hot visuals the entire time, showcasing a glimpse of white underneath her denim skirt.
Unlike many female idols who have tried the trend, Jang Wonyoung has rocked the look on several occasions… all because of her role as MIU MIU brand ambassador. In 2022, MIU MIU became a hot topic in K-Pop for their low-rise skirts, which all the idols were wearing.
On several occasions, Jang Wonyoung showcased her own twist, adding her own “Regal” twist to the look. In one of the first looks, Jang Wonyoung paired a classic pair of MIU MIU cream underwear with a low-rise blue skirt, cropped black top, and denim jacket. While it is casual, it can also be dressed up and looks extremely feminine.
Wonyoung has even gone more androgynous with the trend by combining the look with a blue shirt, dark blue sweater, and pale brown slacks.
Lisa and Jang Wonyoung are two of the hottest female idols and always ooze confidence in whatever they wear. Although the trend is unconventional, especially in Korea’s more traditional society, they wore it proudly and looked phenomenal.
