Since idols work long schedules and spend a lot of time away from their dorms and apartments, they need to keep their bags and purses well-stocked with essentials. However, some idols’ ideas of essential items are pretty unusual. Take a look at 8 stars who keep strange and surprising things in their bags.
1. Yeri (Red Velvet)
In an interview with Refinery 29, Red Velvet‘s Yeri once revealed that she keeps a boiled egg in her bag.
The weirdest part is that she said the boiled egg (along with a carton of soy milk) are there “for emergencies“. What kind of emergency would require an egg as its solution? Only Yeri can know for sure, but at least she’s on top of her protein intake.
2. JB (GOT7)
Way back in 2017, GOT7 shot a “What in My Bag” video for Mnet where they revealed that JB keeps a housekeeping book on him at all times.
He explained that he uses it to keep track of all the money he spends. Five years on, now he’s even more successful, perhaps he doesn’t need to budget so closely anymore.
In a video for Vogue Korea, Sunmi told viewers she always keeps a bodygun in her purse.
The 808 Bodygun G30 is a “massage gun” which stimulates soft tissue. Sunmi said she bought the 129,000 KRW ($100 USD) tool herself after seeing fitness trainers use it to relax their muscles.
4. Tiffany (Girls’ Generation)
In a 2019 HollyWire interview, Girls’ Generation‘s Tiffany was asked to reveal the weirdest thing in her bag. Her choice? Some silver accessories.
While that may not seem surprising at first, the strange part was how she kept them wrapped up in a sheet of paper.
5. San (ATEEZ)
According to a video ATEEZ‘s San shot for AchallenZ, he keeps an Apple Airpod in his bag.
That’s right—just one single Airpod. Unfortunately, he lost the other during a car ride. There’s nothing unusual about keeping headphones on you, but fans found it funny that San would rather use a single Airpod than switch back to wired earbuds.
6. Jiu (Dreamcatcher)
Dreamcatcher‘s Jiu revealed the contents of her bag in a Dreamcatcher’s Note video—including multiple pieces of fruit.
Considering fruit expires pretty quickly, it’s surprising Jiu chose blood oranges and bananas as her go-to snack over typical non-perishables like energy bars.
Funnily enough, in SuA and Gahyeon‘s bag reveals, they also pulled out multiple pieces of fruit. In their case, the fruit of choice was hanrabong, a type of hybrid clementine.
7. Dami (Dreamcatcher)
Dreamcatcher’s Dami had something strange in her bag, too: a tiny copy of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
It’s such an unusual pick, even Dami couldn’t explain what it was doing in there. But, if she ever gets bored while waiting for schedules to start, it will certainly keep her entertained.
8. Somin (KARD)
Many idols keep medicines on them throughout the day, but KARD‘s Somin was a little embarrassed to reveal one of her picks: a supplement called “Love My Bowels”.
Somin said the powder is great if you get constipated a lot and that she highly recommends it. Of course, there’s really no reason to be embarrassed about keeping your digestive system healthy!
