Korean Fashion: Campus Couple Saturday!

Today is a special day because it's what I'd like to call "Campus Couple" Saturday. This will feature some of the latest Korean fashion worn by couples that I've spotted in the past couple of weeks. If you haven't seen some of the other campus couple observations, check them out here. You have to be fast to take these pictures, or else you'll lose your one moment to shine. If I miss my shot, sometimes we turn around and follow them paparazzi-style for that "perfect" shot (which is hard to come across at times). Let's take a look at what we have in store today!

This was taken inside the elevator on the way up to the Megabox movie theater. I had to be a little sneaky since they were literally a meter away from us. I took this picture because the guy's outfit was just so darn...cute:


One more from the back, after his girlfriend put her black vest to complete the "campus couple" look:


It seems like blacks vests are the thing to wear for couples...check out this mannequins modeling them at Homever:


Inside the Megabox, we spotted another couple:


Outside of the Megabox, we spotted another couple. This time, they were sponsored by Adidas!


Gee, I think Devante and I really need to jump onto the bandwagon and start wearing the same matching outfits. What do you think?

haha, well I say that too, but there are some things I just don't need to try! ;)

lol I find them quite cute on other couples, but I don't think I'd ever do that... here anyway.
Is Homeover like a Zellers/Walmart? Are their clothes that sort of quality? (ie... cheap)

Gdog said...

natasha: Yep, Homever is like a Walmart/Zellers, but the prices are a bit more expensive. They do carry some mid-range brands though. I do not go shopping there though, just for groceries. :)

Wow, that's just weird...

When I first came to Korea I thought it was so gay that couples wore the same outfit. Actually I used to kinda make fun of them. And now that I have been dating a Korean for just over 10 months now it has somewhat rubbed off on me. The best place to capture couples in their matching wear is at the airport. When I went back to Canada between my contract I must have seen at least 20 ppl all dressed up...........literally from head to shoe -- I figured they must have been going on their honeymoon or something of that sort.

Sung Hyun and I will be travelling to Canada during my summer vacation at the end of July........he wants to do the couple thing.......ahhhhh!!! What will my mom think when she sees her daughter wearing the same outfit as her boyfriend!!!! YIKES

I don't understand couples that dress alike! I feel like smacking them to their senses.

No dice. No couple shirts/clothes/shoes for me. Closest I got was a couple cell phone chain....and that was after I X-nayed the puffy pink pig she was so eager for me to wear.

I still get a good laugh at it, especially when the guy is more feminin than the lady.

Gdog said...

kelly: yeah, it's definitely a cultural thing that is hard to understand--although I have fun taking pictures of them!

red: it's especially funny when the guy is more feminine than the lady like you said--but it's even better when he's carrying her purse/handbag in the process. ahh saa!

I'm tellin' you the Koreans are just 40 years behind the U.S. We didn't carry as far as they do, but there were matching shirts and sweaters for couples back in the '60's.

Honestly I think that couple clothes is the most adorable thing ever. I have dated more than one Korean before, but we were both in the United States and I wasn't aware that there was such a thing as couple clothes.
I hope in the future though when I once again get a korean boyfriend that we will wear couple clothes.
I think it's a sign of a special bond and come one guys that dress up a little feminine is just cute! I'm not sure if I'm a lot younger than most people writing here, but that might be the reason for my view on it. Also my infatuation with Korea I know is probably as big part of it too.
