Korean Fashion For Men: Korean School Uniform Style

Korean school uniform (particularly high school uniform) which we call it Gyobok (교복) in Korean has been a fashion statement amongst the Korean youths. The reason behind this is because school uniform retailers used idols for their advertisements and also the popularity of teen idol dramas which were often based in a high school. The examples of the dramas are “Goong 궁”, “Boys Over Flowers 꽃보다남자“, “Playful Kiss장난스런 키스” and “Dream High 드림 하이“. 

Korean school uniform for guys usually consists of a blazer, vest, shirt, tie and trousers. Let us see some of the pictures of the idols wearing the school uniform.
