For this year’s September, the month has already reached its mid-journey, and a lot has happened since. K-pop is continuously reaching out to international audiences more and more, leading most idols to become ever-present in foreign areas.
While K-pop idols tend to focus heavily on their music and appearances, their ability to captivate a brand’s identity is also undeniably impressive. This can lead many idols to be selected by various luxury brands, and eventually becoming ambassadors.
