If you're like me, who's a K-pop fan but at the same time a Fashion enthusiast, well, you are lucky today as we are going to dive deeper into some of our favorite rising K-pop idols.
ITZY's main dancer, Chaeryeong, is one of a kind. She's known for her powerful moves onstage, and just like Ryujin, she also started her career earlier as part of the Sixteen Program. Chaeryeong feels so different when she's performing- you can see how powerful her dance steps are and the aura when she's there. Her most iconic outfit was probably in the Not Shy era- the ruffled denim shorts and the printed jacket over the Rendez-Vous square scarf with a matching pair of gold knee-length boots to complete the look. It was one of the most unforgettable she wore, and until today, no outfits have topped that one.
Today, as part of the 4th Generation Queens Fashion Style series, we'll dive deeper into Chaeryeong's sense of style when she goes off-stage.
