Kpop idols from Thailand who stole people’s hearts in traditional costumes

There are many Kpop idols who come from Thailand and most of them manage to bring a piece of their culture to the Kpop scene.

Over the years, there have been many Kpop idols who came from Thailand. Despite the fact that most of them operate mainly in Korea, they also try to promote the traditions and elements of Thai culture. In the case of female idols, a common way to do this is to decorate traditional Thai clothes.

(G)I-DLE Minnie once wore a traditional costume called Chut Thai, made of red fabric with gold threads. Compared to her mysterious and alluring image on stage, Minnie exuded a regal and chic aura in her nation’s attire.

Born into an upper-class Thai family, it was no surprise that Minnie looked like a true Thai princess.
