7 K-Pop Idols Known For Their “Expensive” Vibe
Whether it be cute, sweet, charismatic, funny (the list goes on), every K-pop idol has that special persona that makes them stand out. However, there are some stars that just seem to live and breathe “expensive.” Whether it’s the way they dress or their elegant personality, these seven idols definitely have that tasteful vibe.
1. TWICE’s Mina
TWICE’s gorgeous dancer and vocalist Mina holds herself with the beauty of a ballerina (which makes sense, since she had years of ballet training before her debut with the group). Perhaps that’s why she comes across as so poised and graceful at all times – elevated, of course, by her smooth and lovely singing voice.
2. ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo
He’s an idol, an actor, and a model – Cha Eun Woo can do it all, and the vibes are always immaculate! This shoot in Italy really encapsulates his elegant looks and sweet personality. He looks handsome without even trying, and the clean-cut styles add to that “expensive” feeling. You wouldn’t expect anything else from a “True Beauty” actor!

3. IVE’s Jang Won Young
This minute-long clip was published as a part of IVE’s debut process, but it doesn’t take long to see just how lovely Jang Won Young is. She’s got plenty of experience despite her young age thanks to her time as an IZ*ONE member, which might be part of the reason she always seems so polished. Plus, her Instagram just screams “expensive.”
4. Stray Kids’ Hyunjin
Even with difficult choreography like this one, Hyunjin’s every movement is graceful and perfected. The gorgeous costuming and sparkling jewelry really add to the “expensive” look, but it’s not just this “SKZ-PLAYER” video – Hyunjin somehow manages to look elegant in everything he wears and everything he does.
5. aespa’s Karina
This fun lipstick-making video with aespa’s leader Karina proves that she’s every bit as poised off-stage as she is when she’s performing. Everything about her, from her smooth voice to her gentle mannerisms, just seems so put-together. Plus, her taste in fashion and in hobbies really adds to the “expensive” vibe.
6. BTS’s V
He earned himself the nickname “Human Gucci” for a reason! V’s avant-garde fashion and charismatic persona can seem intimidating at first, but the “Singularity” music video proves that he can make even a simple white shirt look luxurious. He can also pull off the unique choreography and has a smooth, velvety voice, so “Human Gucci” definitely seems appropriate.
This list wouldn’t be complete without the so-called “Human Chanel” of K-pop: BLACKPINK’s Jennie! She’s been the face of countless high-end brands, and she pulls off every look in the “SOLO” music video (of which there are many) with a singular elegance. Graceful, stunning, and a voice like honey – it doesn’t get more “expensive” than that!
