“Stylist NewJeans lost story.”

“NewJeans is going through that old phase of Kpop, a freshly debuted, experimental outfit.”

“Have they changed stylists? How is it that their outfits are different from those that debuted for the first time? I remember their outfits were so much prettier back then. “

– Are they wearing criminal uniform or something?

“These clothes look like they were sewn by an elementary school student who likes really bright colors… The stylists keep exaggerating. But their music performance outfits were cute. “
