It is never easy to promote a culture. I see the Sundown Festival – Seoul’d Out event as an ingenious attempt to incorporate traditional Korean culture with contemporary Kpop. While they invited some Korean pop stars to be the crowd pullers, audience got to enjoy cultural fringe acts and be treated with traditional Korean food in the lineup of food stalls reminiscent of Dongdaemun.

I was invited to this event’s press conference and it was quite eye-opener. I will share with you what the Korean celebrities were wearing at the press conference, which was only opened to the media.

As indicated in the title, this post is on the male celebrities outfits.

T Max

This is a popular all-male trio with one member (Kim Joon) being a F4 of the popular “Boys Over Flowers” Korean drama. They were dressed pretty casually but the immaculately styled hairdo make them look every inch like celebrities.

Coherent colour scheme of black, white and gray.

Full length shots of Pak Yun Hwa (left) and Kim Joon (right). Pimping their boots!

Lee Ji Soo

He is not a very famous singer but he looked really different from the promotional pictures. Definitely more manly in this carefully assembled outfit. This casual outfit screams details – the embellishments on the lapels of the jacket, the necklace and the black chain.. and last but not least bling bling Nike high cuts!

FT Island

They are apparently very popular and have loads of fans! Their outfits were also the most interesting!

(Extreme left): Seung Hyun is in this double-breasted blazer and sheen pants. I have seen similar blazer for girls on Gmarket.  I so wanna order one jacket now!

Guys can try out blazer with Dr Martens/high cuts for a smart casual look. Hongki, who has blond hair, was wearing a crop white blazer, layered necklace and shoes with splattered paint patterns.  I think this is a cool outfit for girls too!

Jong Hun (guy on the extreme right), who had windswept hair, was in this very cool combination of animal prints and purple dyes. I will never match 2 clashing prints together but I must say he rocked that look.

Actually, Jong Hun (windswept hair) is wearing navy blue moccasins with purple textured pants!


I’m really impressed with Jong Hun’s ensemble, although my personal favourites are Lee Ji Soo and Seung Hyun (FT Island).

Thanks Lynette of Kokokoreano for donating some pictures to me. It was tough to pit against everyone’s huge cameras. For more pictures of the event, please refer to my Facebook.

And of course, thanks Adlena of Touchcomm for inviting me to this event! It was an interesting experience!
