Fashion experts from Seoul to Busan were dismayed to learn that the Worst Dressed List for South Korea has resulted in an unprecedented 257-way tie for first place. Sharing this dubious honor are numerous singers, entertainers, students, office workers, small dogs, and even the unborn children of terribly dressed mothers.
International fashion designer Leston Giochanni remarked, “I never would have believed it if I hadn’t seen the results with my own eyes. My god, what is that she’s wearing? It looks like what blind people must see when they’re on acid. My eyes are starting to sting.”
The results have drawn a mixed reaction in South Korea. Some expressed incredulity at the findings. “Why can’t you make a jacket out of linoleum floor tile?” asked Kim Jeonghoon, a university student. Others, like florist Park Heeju, dismissed the importance of the list. “If hot pink fly-fishing boots are what you want to wear to your wedding, that should be your choice.”
