Second-Generation Idols’ Styling Comes Under Fire For Looking Like “Diapers”


While fashion trends in K-Pop come and go and gain different reactions, one that has always had mixed reactions is outfits resembling “diapers.”

Yet, the outfits have gained attention for the wrong reasons, as netizens have compared the shorts they wore to a diaper.

Although the video only became a hot topic amongst Korean netizens on January 26, the comments under the video had been discussing the controversial “diaper” fashion since it was first posted. In particular, at first glance, many thought it looked like Huggies, which is a diaper brand.

Yet, even before the TikTok challenge was posted, netizens shared their concerns about the outfits and how they looked like “diapers.” While the two idols look amazing with their visuals, netizens couldn’t get over how ridiculous the pants looked.

I like me some sistar19 but those white fuzzy shorts they wore in the MV looks like diapers. Whoever’s idea to make them wear those don’t know what sexy is

Sistar19 is an EPIC comeback! However I can never watch that mv again. Those snow outfits are atrocious… they put two gorgeous women in fuzzy diapers. Who the hell thought that was a good idea??

While Bora and Hyolyn are truly pioneers in K-Pop, sometimes fashion can be so extreme that even the most stunning idols would be criticized for it. The “Diaper” trend might be one of those.
