1. [+43, 0] Can B1A4's coordis please wake up. Why are they dressing such handsome kids in clothes like this and making people call them their antis
2. [+42, -0] The wings they wore at the Gayo Daejun...
3. [+38, -0] There are also times that I feel SHINee's coordis are their antis ㅠㅠ I think SHINee and B1A4 look better when they dress themselvesㅠ

Sorry for the mess you guys, there are a lot of pictures of varying dimensions. X|
I was loling and headdesking in equal measure. My no.1 complaint! They look so cute in normal boy clothes, yet still.... I think the netizens hit some of the highlights--uh, lowlights--but please share your favorite disaster in the comments

Dear God.

The suit with their photos on... I can't

Everything in this post, I JUST CAN'T. I don't usually watch them perform so I'm pretty much blessed enough that I only watch them in variety shows with normal clothes on.
raiha_kasep 2nd-Jan-2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
kkkkkk I just notice LOL
i stopped stanning them after beautiful target so I didnt really know their outfit other than MV
kkk this is so LOL
XDDDD

One of the hardships of being a fan of B1A4...worst styling since old TVXQ. Actually, scratch that; nothing's worse than that.
aeries_amethyst 2nd-Jan-2013 10:35 pm (UTC)
I think Old SuJu kind of comes pretty close, but then again they are in the same company so that was probably expected XD
consequences 2nd-Jan-2013 04:18 pm (UTC)
omg i just can't get over the fact they wore blazers with their own faces on them

like- what is that
pseudo_shigure 2nd-Jan-2013 04:25 pm (UTC)
I just started to listen In The Wind and it's golden! Ignition was ok.
SO I just hope they give them non-cutesy concept with good styling.

baroness 2nd-Jan-2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
that was the worst for me after i saw the word fungi because ughdaadhsjhsd puke
yingmoon26 2nd-Jan-2013 06:18 pm (UTC)
hate their styling a lot of the time too, it's crazy and wacky and worst than jeremy scott (YES I JUST SAID THAT)

but at the same time because they've consistently been styled so badly it has become their signature thing XD like you see that kind of clothing and you KNOW it's b1a4.

SHINee too. but less so than b1a4.
embroideredkiss 2nd-Jan-2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
agreed, it's their thing now, it wouldn't be B1A4 if they didn't have atrocious outfits and at least one shockingly bad hair style.
fabledlamb 2nd-Jan-2013 06:31 pm (UTC)
You can't even criticize their company for not giving them enough of a budget for decent outfits. Most of that stuff is custom-made especially for them and all of that costs money. But these stylists seem to have no taste at all. And I say that as a 2NE1 fan who should be used to massive amounts of tackiness.

I thought things would finally be better now because the outfits for the Ignition repackage, the In the Wind mini album and the Tried to Walk MV were so so pretty! But then Jinyoung's blazer with the pink unicorn tails attached to his shoulders at the KBS gayo thing last Friday, Baro's furry gorilla arms and his big bow during some of the Tried to Walk performances and CNU's cornrows paired with those horrible white uniforms for their BABA concerts marked a new all-time low for me.

I liked most of their Japanese outfits so far though which is unusual for me because the outfits of kpop groups in Japan have a tendency to be too casual and basic (especially when you're used to the edgier stuff that the groups usually do in Korea). But in B1A4's case casual is actually a good thing, like here:



Or in this one where the crazy printed suit & streetwear concept really works:


markthatcoin 2nd-Jan-2013 07:37 pm (UTC)
i remember the post with all the pics from the japanese album, everyone (incl me) was like WHY NOT IN KOREA?!?!?!?
the_erotomanic 2nd-Jan-2013 06:56 pm (UTC)
i don't mind it if idols wear crazy outfits when they're performing, but some of those clothes are just fug. :o(
penipenpen 2nd-Jan-2013 07:04 pm (UTC)
I actually thought Tried to Walk would have decent outfits based on the beautiful mv. But then again, I was wrong. (the amount of their faces on their suits still creeps me out)

I feel deceived, tbh. lol
markthatcoin 2nd-Jan-2013 07:36 pm (UTC)
lol the outfits from all the performances on music shows actually have pictures of themselves from the MV/album jacket... but in more pleasing neutral autumn colors
(i learned this on their interview with MNET/JJANG)

you can kind of see gongchan's face on his left knee up above (the pic with the skirt thing, which is actually only a skirt on the front half of his pants, smh
kazu_kumaguro 2nd-Jan-2013 08:35 pm (UTC)
just when I thought it cannot be worse than what I've seen, I saw the fungi leopard one, the one above that as well, cannot help but think of nipples and bellybutton.

I don't think they're gaining antis because of these though.
staaan 2nd-Jan-2013 09:03 pm (UTC)
so much ugly in one post omg
frantastic 2nd-Jan-2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
lmao, I don't think I'll ever complain about SHINee or f(x)'s styling again
fallingfortruth 2nd-Jan-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
It really does give you some perspective, doesn't it.

(I say as a stan of all three groups. B1A4's styling is just so unspeakably awful.)
yeolcarp 2nd-Jan-2013 10:07 pm (UTC)
I think I'm biased enough towards Sandeul to ignore all his horrid fashion, but Gongchan what was that mushroom thing I think I'm actually disgusted. Can someone throw up from a fashion error, or in this case fashion armageddon?
very_pinku 2nd-Jan-2013 10:26 pm (UTC)
lol although horrible, I think the stylists wants B1A4 to stand out from the rest.
It's like, "oh god who are these boys wearing these horrible outfits??" and make people curious lol.
kanbinayume 2nd-Jan-2013 10:33 pm (UTC)
they have some really tragic outfits, but I kinda like Baro(?)'s red polka dot jacket
markthatcoin 2nd-Jan-2013 11:08 pm (UTC)
yep that's baro! he's so qt even in stupid clothes
in_noctem 2nd-Jan-2013 10:37 pm (UTC)
Hahaha A+ post op. I always think their outfits can't get any worse but the stylists constantly one up themselves. The last horrid thing I remember them wearing was one of the Tried to Walk Music Bank performances where Baro essentially wore a jumpsuit with a bright blue top and a ribbon tied around his neck? and also Jinyoung's pink...thing a the KBS Gayo Daejun. Jinyoung's studded collar thing in the OLTBT MV also greatly bothered me. I think their most normal era was My Love.

I just remembered how awesome their styling in Baby I'm Sorry was (minus the neon suits) and was dying for them to perform in those outfits but it didn't happen :(

I actually love the dog collar for all the wrong reasons. *pedonoona stare*
tokadah 2nd-Jan-2013 10:47 pm (UTC)
they really do know how to dress themselves up finely way more than their stylists. I love Jinyoung's fashion sense. boy is fione when he dresses himself... UNF.

I hate 4 the most.

I've done an airport fashion post before, and they're really not bad at all! Unlike some boys, they know how to pick things that fit well and suit them
jazzy4heard 2nd-Jan-2013 10:52 pm (UTC)
when you put them all together like that.. it really gets much much much worse..

can't we just burn all those outfits and leave them nekkid? they would make adorable babies -no pervert thought at all..none of it-
jazzy4heard 2nd-Jan-2013 10:56 pm (UTC)
I scroll back up..
I thought the face-printed blazers are the worst..
Apparently I failed to see the leopard fungi.. I just can't...
atelierlune 2nd-Jan-2013 11:51 pm (UTC)
First thought: some of this has to be photoshopped. There's no way.
erisinia 3rd-Jan-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
I wish that it were so.
