Is paper bag gonna be the new IT bag in Korea? That was the question on everyone’s mind after EXO’s Kai was frequently spotted carrying a shopping bag to store his essentials.
Some fans even speculated that he was carrying a US$290 Jil Sander Vasari bag. (It was later proven to be a plain brown paper bag.)
And it’s not that the idol can’t afford a proper bag since his fans have gifted him with branded bags (but that’s a story for another day). He admitted on a radio show that his choice stemmed from convenience.
And we kinda get where he’s coming from. Sometimes, a paper bag suits your outfit better than any bag you own. #truefact And that is why we think these pseudo-paper bags are pretty awesome.
