I haven’t translated any rumor-worthy lately, every rumor seems lame and boring and I’m looking for something shocking. XD. Sorry, can’t help it. Anyway, this piece of rumor isn’t really shocking, just some fans making a big deal out of a so-called fashion that I won’t be caught wearing.
Kis-My-Ft2 will be releasing their 3rd album- “Kis-My-Journey“- this July 2nd and a PV for “3.6.5“, one of the tracklist from the album, was released. The song and album cover of “Kis-My-Journey” is garnering criticisms from some KPOP fans.
Back in May, a TV show dubbed Tamamori Yuta as a trendsetter for starting the “black mask” thing. The show received some criticisms that the so-called trend didn’t start with Tamamori but has been present in Kpop world with the likes of BIG BANG and even in Japan with Sandaime J Soul Brothers.
Recently, the clothes and song title of Kis-My-Ft2 is being criticized for their similarities in style with KPOP group EXO. The group EXO released a song titled “3.6.5” for their first album and the bandana underskirt fashion is also something that EXO is known for.
However, the “bandana underskirt” has been in fashion among Johnny’s even back during their Junior days. Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Inoo Kei wore something similar during the group’s concert in Tokyo Dome last May and Johnny’s WEST Kamiyama Tomohiro was also spotted wearing it during a public performance.
Despite the criticisms- fashion-wise- that Kis-My-Ft2 is getting, the red and black bandanas worn by the group had been sold-out from MYE-DO where the bandanas were sold.
I’m sure that Kisumai didn’t copy anyone else’s style because I doubt that they have a say on what to wear for PVs and live performances. Also, the bandana thingy has been going-on since 1980s and had evolved ever since.
