Recently, a Korean forum discussed Jennie’s influence as an idol and has created many fashion trends for items and brands. In particular, according to netizens, Jennie has trended the oversized quilt bag style in Korea after she was seen with a COS quilt bag.

In 2022, Jennie was seen wearing the bag on several occasions, whether she is out and about and spotted by fans, taking selfies for her Instagram, or even at the airport.
According to Korean netizens, they are suddenly seeing a lot of people wearing the bag in places such as the supermarket. Considering how often Jennie wears the piece, it isn’t surprising to know that it almost seems to be permanently sold out.

In the series, Jisoo was dressed and styled like someone from the 1980s. yet, it was Jisoo’s hairstyle that stood out. The style was parted in the middle and then curled out to make subtle waves.
A hair salon in Seoul revealed that a lot of customers asked to have their hair styled like Eun Young Ro (Jisoo’s character). According to the post, the hairdressers believed it was a hairstyle that suited nearly everyone’s face type and was suitable for everyone.
