as much as i agree that spending tons on branded stuff is ridiculous, but supporting fake industry is also wrong. i mean she's a pretty girl, why not support local, high quality fashion items? she'll look good wearing anything anyway.

Y’all gonna be mad at me for saying this but

What she did was kinda wrong? She tried so hard to make herself look like luxurious rich girl and now it back fires to her face-

Sure, there is nothing wrong with buying knock off clothes but it made Ji a look like a scammer/liar? although it’s not a big deal I believe it can affect her image and value in eye of many luxurious brands
Although I don’t think she had to apologize for Seth like this? considering Korean never care to ask for an apology when it comes to racism controversies but y’all know how Koreans are! They might forgive/move on from a criminal or racism but still be mad over lying and attitude controversies

-

Ps. I feel like an idiot for not understanding how people even recognize fake and real clothes
