After the event, one topic garnered the interest of Korean netizens in particular. The outfits worn by the female K-Pop artists!

"The outfits are cute without being revealing."
"The outfits are all nice but... they just look kind of old-fashioned."
"As long as the outfits aren't uncomfortable to dance in, it's fine."
