Known as one of the world’s oldest holidays, Halloween is celebrated every year with much joy and enthusiasm on 31 October in many countries. With origins that can be traced back to the Celtic festival of Samhain, which was celebrated predominantly in Britain and Ireland, Halloween — a contraction for All Hallows’ Eve — has gained immense popularity and has spread all over the world, including nations far east like South Korea. 

K-pop stars have always wowed the world with their charisma be it their music, fashion, films and TV shows or beauty products. While the Korean wave, or Hallyu, has taken the world by storm, some of your favourite K-pop stars like to go all out with their costumes last Halloween. 

Here’s how some of the K-pop stars celebrated Halloween last year. Going by the colourful costumes and edgy make-up, it will be interesting to see what looks they come up with this year. You can also take a leaf or two out of their books for your Halloween inspiration to dress up for this season.

The “Butter” hitmakers stole the hearts of many in 2020 by draping a white piece of cloth over them to resemble ghosts. They added an edge to their ghost-like costumes by wearing some cool and colourful sunglasses. 

The band was also seen in another picture where they were dressed casually, posing for the camera and wishing everyone a happy Halloween. Both the pictures had the boy band members holding Halloween-themed decorations.

Another band that stole the show last year with their Halloween fashion was the all-boy group TXT, with its members looking dapper in suits. 

Apart from looking crisp and neat, the band also completed filming the Halloween version for the song “We Lost The Summer”.

Last year, the South Korean hitmaker gave her followers a double treat dressed as Maleficent and Kaonashi (No-face from Hayao Miyazaki’s 2001 film Spirited Away).

She stole the show in black ensembles, complete with make-up to stay true to the character.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic dampened the Halloween spirit last year, K-pop girl group Momoland managed to make the best of their time. 

The group surprised fans with an online party. From Tinkerbell and Sailor Moon to Catwoman and Marilyn Monroe, the members of the band donned costumes of various characters from films and comic books to celebrate Halloween. Some also adorned the garb of characters from the game Among Us.

The all-girl group, Dreamcatcher, enthralled their followers last year as they danced to the tunes of a K-zombie version of their song “Boca”. Members of the group looked scary in their unique costumes. 

They chose the guise of zombies from the political horror thriller show, Kingdom. The K-pop stars completed their look with spooky make-up.

K-pop singer and record producer Gray found his Halloween match in Toy Story’s Sheriff Woody. He looked adorable in his Instagram posts and fans couldn’t help gushing over him.
