Among the new characters were announced, a large number of people interested in K-pop, Korean people have flocked attention on one character – the character has shaped to resemble Hanbok innovative Jisoo (BLACKPINK). ”

Every little detail of this outfit reminds Knet of Jisoo’s outfit in the MV How You Like That . For Kpop fans, the 4 Hanboks of BLACKPINK in general and Jisoo in particular have a wide influence, becoming a hot trend after this MV “caused storms” globally.

Netizens have expressed their opinions on this:
– Anti kept saying that every Hanbok is the same, but Jisoo’s Hanbok influence is everywhere! Bear, bear, not bear also have to suffer ha!
– I like Jisoo’s Hanbok the best, no mistake!

– Jisoo’s Hanbok is ordered separately, right?
– This proves Jisoo’s influence is very broad.
– The shirt and the person wearing both are so beautiful. At the beginning of the year it was taken, a few months later it was taken again.
As can be seen, fans recognize the similarities between Demon Hunters and Jisoo’s virtual characters. However, it seems that everyone is not too important on this matter anymore, as long as Jisoo’s influence is recognized.
Previously, JYP Entertainment was also criticized because Knet suspected that the company intentionally pushed Dahyun ( TWICE ) into the scandal of Jisoo’s Hanbok in the Switch To Me project . BLINKs (BLACKPINK’s fandom) and Knet in general were dissatisfied with this incident, and said that due to the great influence of YG Entertainment girls, they often get caught up in unnecessary scandals.

Now, she is not only active in singing or acting, but also becomes a cult face of the fashion industry as Dior’s Global Ambassador in Beauty and Fashion. Perhaps because of that, fans are now more “stamped” than protecting her, preserving the reputation of the idol. This incident between Demon Hunters may not be something worth condemning anymore in the eyes of the fans.
As the new global ambassador of Dior Beauty and Fashion, Jisoo and fans need to take extra care to avoid unnecessary controversy.
