Here are some reactions from fans on theqoo platform:

  • “Yeji is really pretty, but the headscarf itself isn’t attractive. It looks like the kind of souvenir handkerchief produced locally as a souvenir.”
  • “Just the bandana coordination itself is not great. Because of the Y2K trend, many idols nowadays are doing it. I can endure the increase in oversized clothes and the rise of HOT looks, but the bandana feels too tacky…”
  • “Feels like a mountain climbing club… but Yeji is too pretty.”
  • “I like that the attention is drawn to her features. Clear facial features can be shown off.”
  • “Is it really that bad? It’s not bad at all.”
  • “Would it have been better if she wore a slightly larger one?”
  • “It really looks like a hiking handkerchief.”
  • “It would have been better if they completely covered their eyebrows or slightly raised them to show their eyebrows.”
  • “The bandana looks unique and suits well. It would be even better if it were slightly raised and prettier.”
  • “Even though she’s pretty, there’s a high chance that female idol fans don’t like wearing their idol’s bandana.”
  • “The bandana and top don’t look good together.”
  • “It’s just that Yeji is pretty. The bandana seems weird.”
  • “I usually don’t like bandana styling, but Yeji seems to pull it off nicely. The red color suits her well. It would look even prettier if it were slightly raised.”
