I get that K-pop is all about flashy, colorful, and loud music that makes you jump out of your seat and grind harder for your dreams. Kpop is also a place where you can find peace.
However, the ridiculous thing about being a K-pop Idol is over-the-top fashion, which sometimes surpasses the average yearly income of some individuals.
These idols have an insane lifestyle, and what’s more insane is these outfits that cost thousands of dollars.
In this post, we’re looking at some of the most expensive outfits Kpop idols have worn. The list includes some famous Kpop idols known for their fashion choices and some not-so-common outfits that you won’t see anywhere.
