Netizens wonder why idols don't say anything to their stylist even when their outfits are terrible

AKP STAFF

NCT 127 appeared on the Chuseok special of SBS's YouTube show 'MMTG.'

On this day, the members of NCT 127 spent a joyful time with MC Jaejae and talked about various topics. In particular, the members talked about the early days when they debuted and joined NCT 127.

During the show, Mark shared his honest opinion about the outfits they wore when they were promoting the track, "Fire Truck." Mark explained that he had a hard time during this promotion because he didn't want to wear the outfits.

Taeyong explained, "At that time, Mark, never says anything like this, but he said to me with a really despondent expression, 'Hyung, I don't think I can do this...' So it really hurt my heart so I went to ask the stylists if we had to keep wearing clothes like this." Mark elaborated, "At that time, it seemed like a test every time. I thought, 'I would give it a try today again. I can do it.'"

Haechan added, "It's okay when we're on stage but when we're in the hallway or even on stage with everyone else it was.."The rest of the members reminisced back at the time when they first debuted and recalled the outfits they had to wear.



After hearing their story, other netizens and NCT fans gathered to an online community to share some of the outfits that the NCT 127 members had to wear. They also wondered why more idols don't question stylists about weird outfit choices. Netizens commented, "LOL, I can't believe they wore that," "I hope they wear more fashionable clothes from now on," "Mark is an angel,'" "Why don't idols question the stylists more often?" "Why do stylists experiment on idols like this?" "The members are so kind... if it was me, I think I would cry," "They had no choice since the agency told them to wear that," and "The last photo is really bad. I thought having unique styles on stage was good but now anymore. lol."

Fans often forget idols are employees at a company and are seen as very replaceable if they cause trouble.

Who would an executive trust about fashion, a qualified stylist or someone who wears sweat pants every day as a trainee as they practice singing and dancing?

Its not until years after debut are idols trusted by the company to pick what they wear. And even then frequently they are still forced to wear certain things as brand models.

I think it’s a combination of things— depends on your company, how long you’ve been in the industry, too afraid to speak up, fear or backlash, etc..
