The “under-boob” fashion trend was recently a topic of discussion in K-Pop, and it seems another trend is on the rise that is causing equally mixed reactions. Recently, K-Pop idols have been wearing or imitating the “visible thong straps” trend that was more prevalent in Western fashion in the late 1990s to early 2000s.
Here are nine female K-Pop idols bringing the trend back to life and looking amazing in their respective looks!
1. LIGHTSUM’s Chowon
Chowon wore the trend in a dance challenge video with fellow member Jungwoo for LIGHTSUM‘s recent single “Alive.”
2. LE SSERAFIM’s Sakura
LE SSERAFIM‘s Sakura creatively tied strings to create the look of the “visible thong” fashion trend. Sakura wore the outfit while promoting “FEARLESS” on SBS‘s The Show.
3. MAMAMOO’s Solar
MAMAMOO‘s Solar wore the trend on two separate occasions, both times in fashionable monochromatic outfits.
4. APink’s Bomi
APink‘s second sub-unit, APink CHOBOM, consisting of members Bomi and Chorong released their first album Copycat on July 12. While promoting their title tracks, Bomi wore trendy pants that gave the appearance of the “visible thong” trend.
5. BLACKPINK’s Jennie
Forever ahead of the latest trends, BLACKPINK‘s Jennie wore the mock “visible thong” trend with body chains in October 2020.

8. TWICE’s Momo
On July 22, Momo wore a purple stage outfit for TWICE’s new Japanese single “Celebration” performance on the Japanese music program Music Station. The wrapping around her waist gave the illusion that Momo had joined the trend. The skillful angles added to the illusion.
