Korean fashion has changed really fast. Gangnam fashion and Gangbuk fashion are standards of fashion. I think Korea had progress because of them. Gangnam fashion’s hiphop style. Gangbuk fashion’s retro style. It was influenced by the boy group ‘Seo Taiji and Boys‘. After 2000 ~ 2010, A fashion was full of personality.

Oversea brands have started to enter korea market due to government policy changes. And domestic designers have entered the overseas market in earnest. Hip hop fashion in Gangnam, retro fashion in Gangbuk, punk look in Hongdae musicians, minimalistic look in urban man, avant-garde and grunge look, and the appearance of future cyber punk looks ahead of the birth of a new century.
