These K-Pop Girls Are Rocking Our Favourite ‘90s Fashion Trends

From small shoulder bags to scrunchies, fashion trends from the 1990s are now everywhere. We’re loving the new takes and reinterpretations of some of these trends that have made a comeback. Here, we round up some of our favourite ‘90s fashion trends as seen on these female celebrities.

Tube Tops

The tight-fitting wardrobe staple is easy to style and looks great with virtually any pair of denim jeans. This versatile piece can also be layered and worn under a jacket or blazer for a dressier look.

Ribbed Cardigans

Ribbed, buttoned cardigans are all the rage now and are basic but trendy pieces that can’t go wrong. They come in fun, pastel colours like blue and pink and are also available in neutral colours like white, brown and black. Style it with a straight-cut mini skirt for a playful look or with a pair of jeans for a more laid-back and casual look.

Baguette Bags

Characterised by its short shoulder strap and narrow, rectangular shape, the Fendi Baguette bag was the it bag back in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Many styles similar to the Baguette have since popped up with slight variations in shape and size, so you’re bound to find one that’ll tickle your fancy.


Clips and pins may be the go-to hair accessories but thick, solid-coloured headbands are making a comeback and can easily amp up one’s look. A wide and chunky headband makes a good statement piece while a regular one adds that finishing touch to complete one’s look.


Available in a variety of colours and designs, scrunchies are versatile and can pretty much match any casual outfit. They can also be worn on your wrist as an accessory whilst providing convenience should you ever need a hair tie when you’re out and about.


Iconic Types Of Bangs Sported By K-Pop Girl Groups

Girl group members are no stranger to new hairstyles and colours, having to change up their look every now and then with each comeback; virtually every girl group has had its fair share of members having bangs in one style or another at some point in time. Regardless of whether the bangs are curly or straight, bangs are well-loved and have been seen on many girl group members.  Here, we take a look at some of the most iconic types of bangs sported by this generation’s girl group members.

See-through Bangs

Arguably the most popular style, see-through bangs are a staple in girl groups – almost every girl group has had at least one member sporting the see-through bangs look. It’s a style that instantly shaves years off one’s age for a more youthful look. While trends come and go, the see-through bangs style will never go out of style, that’s for sure.

Full Bangs

A style that changes up one’s look immediately, full bangs can look either cute or chic, depending on the look the person is going for. The duality is strong with this style, as seen on girl group members like Lisa, Joy, Momo and Minnie who rock it both ways on stage and off-stage.

Choppy Bangs

Choppy bangs were trendy for a while and while they’re not as often sported, it is a quirky style that ends above the eyebrows for an edgy look to stand out from others. They can also be grown out to straight bangs or see-through bangs, depending on how thick the choppy bangs are.

The wait is finally over! For the past one month, the festival had been releasing and teasing the artiste line-up on their social media, and today (27 Jun) the organisers have confirmed more details such as the festival schedule and ticketing information. We will summarise everything into this page for your easy reference because it’s really extensive:

What is HallyuPopFest 2018?

HallyuPopFest is said to be the biggest K-pop music festival in South East Asia, and it will be staged in Singapore for the first time and over 3 days from 7 to 9 September 2018. The festival will feature over 100 K-pop idols, 111 to be exact, who will perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

It will be hosted by Korean-American singer-songwriter Eric Nam, and daily activities range from Global Auditions in the morning and throughout the day, followed by Afternoon Showcases and Red Carpet, and ending off with the festival’s finale Evening Concert, which promised power-packed performances that will go on for at least 3 hours daily.

Who will be performing at the Festival?

The line-up is pretty amazing looking at the star-studded performer list, featuring Wanna One for two nights, as they are slated to prepare a different performance setlist for each night, and other headliners such as Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, NCT 127, BTOB, Apink, Heize, EXID, and many more.

Fans can also look forward to up and coming groups such as UNB, Momoland, VICTON, Dreamcatcher, ONF and more, many of whom will be performing in Singapore for the first time. Check out the complete festival schedule below!

What are the Ticket Prices & Fan Entitlements?

There are five standard ticket categories ranging from Cat 1 to Cat 5 (Single day: From S$148 to $298 per day), and the ultimate Daebak! Pass premium tickets. All ticket holders (Cat 1 to Cat 5 and Daebak! Passes) will be entitled to FREE showcase entry aside from the evening concert, applicable for same day activities only.

EXAMPLE: If you purchase the Day 1 ticket (7 Sep), you will be entitled access to Day 1’s afternoon showcases and evening concert. Oh yes, Red Carpet* as well. That’s a pretty good steal. (*Note: Red Carpet will be open to the public too)

What about the Daebak! Pass?

Daebak! Pass belongs to the premium category where you can get access to all the fan entitlements that Cat 1 to Cat 5 ticket holders receive, and on top of that, Priority Access to the showcases & concerts, a Dedicated Daebak! VIP Standing zone (red carpet & evening concert), Hi-Touch and Group Photo opportunities, exclusive Daebak! lanyard & pass, and the exclusive goodie bag that comes with it. Prices are S$498 per day and passes are very limited as well — definitely not cheap but it’s really for those who can afford it. (On the looks of it, it’s kinda similar to KCON NY, but KCON is priced much higher for their Diamond/Platinum packages.)

Daebak! (in Korean) = Something Amazing/Awesome  So ticket holders of this premium category, you can expect really up-close interactions with your favourite idols at the festival!

What is the Global Auditions all about?

For the first time ever in Singapore and South East Asia, three of Korea’s biggest K-Entertainment companies Cube Entertainment, Starship Entertainment and Jellyfish Entertainment will be partnering with HallyuPopFest to hold individual global auditions on different days of the festival.

If you are an aspiring singer/dancer/actor/actress, you may like to note that the Head of Recruitment from the respective agencies will personally be in town to search for budding talents in the region! This is a dream too good to be true, but yes IT IS TRUEAll ticket holders, regardless of the ticket category, will be entitled to register for all 3 days of auditions. Of course, you’ll have to practice hard and send in your audition video clip for a chance to be shortlisted for the actual auditions by the Korean Entertainment companies at HallyuPopFest.

(NOTE: Auditions will be held in the morning and throughout the day, closed-door. If you are a shortlisted applicant, you will hear from the event organisers on where and what time to report for the actual audition. Find out more on the auditions here.)

If you didn’t already know, the K-Entertainment companies house really notable and talented artistes like your favourite idols, such as:

  • Cube Entertainment: BTOB, HyunA, Jo Kwon, PENTAGON, CLC, Wanna One’s Lai Kuan Lin, (G)I-DLE, and more
  • Starship Entertainment: Soyou, MONSTA X, Boyfriend, K.Will, Jeong Sewoon, Yu Seungwoo, Cosmic Girls (WJSN), and more
  • Jellyfish Entertainment: VIXX, gugudan, actress Jung So-min, Kim Ye-won, and more

When will Tickets go on Sale?

Public ticket sales for all categories, including single day Daebak! passes, will be available from 7 July (Saturday), 10am onwards (based on local time) via the following channels:

  • Online Booking:
  • Hotline Booking: +65 3158 7888
  • Others: Singapore Indoor Stadium Box Office, The Star Performing Arts Centre Box Office, Scotts Square Concierge Desk and all SingPost outlets

There will also be a 1-day priority sale for fans who wish to get the best tickets in the house for ALL 3 days. The only catch is, the 3-day pack is only applicable to CAT 1 tickets and Daebak! Passes, and they have to be purchased by the same category. In other words, either a 3-day CAT 1 package (S$298 x 3 days = S$894) or 3-day Daebak! Pass package (S$498 x 3 days = S$1,494), before booking fees. (UPDATE: There will be a 5% priority discount for these 3-day packs, exclusively on 6 July during the priority sale only)

The 1-day priority sale will be on 6 July (Friday) from 10am to 11.59pm (based on local time) via the same booking channels. Check out the seating layout below!

Interesting To Know

Even though this inaugural festival will be held for the first time in Singapore and South East Asia, it is interesting to know that HallyuPopFest 2018 is curated by H.A.H. Entertainment, a homegrown firm backed with two decades of experience in the entertainment business.

The festival will also be produced by Flax & Co., who is the production company behind other notable music events such as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic’s K-pop Concert, MBC’s ‘Asian Music Network @ DMC Festival’ as well as MU:CON 2017. Definitely sounds very promising ahead!

At the fan meeting, fans were treated to a string of gugudan’s hit tracks such as ‘Wonderland‘, ‘Diary‘, ‘A Girl Like Me‘ and ‘Rainbow‘. Not to mention, Sejeong also performed a verse of her solo track ‘Flower Road‘, while the youngest members Mina and Hyeyeon gave a snippet of their sub-unit debut track ‘Ice Chu‘.

Known for their great vocal skills, gugudan gave an impressive A Cappella cover of ‘Ray’s Rock House‘ as they dropped jaws with their perfect harmonization.

The girls also performed ‘Perhaps Love‘ for the very first time, serenading Singapore fans with their soulful voices.

Aside from all the performances, gugudan also showered fans with plenty of fan-service and affection. Before the fan meeting came to an end, the girls expressed their gratitude to all Singapore fans whom made this fan meeting possible and even promised to return with a larger-scale event in the future.
