This is something I’m quite curious about. Mr Gwon has no desire to ever wear that army camouflage ever again and said his friends, who have also done their service, have an aversion to it as well. Some say they have an “allergy” to anything military looking because compulsory military service is so stressful and difficult. Some refuse to ever buy the brands that are used in the military, even though they are just a completely normal brand outside the military too. For example, they won’t ever buy a brand of skin lotion if it was the one they had to use while doing their compulsory military service.
However, I see that military camouflage patterns on clothes and bags all the time in Korea! I’m wondering whether only younger guys who haven’t done their military service yet are the ones buying it? Let me know in the comment section, if you are a Korean guy and you’ve done your service, do you still wear clothes with a military camouflage pattern? Or do you never want to wear it again?
In regards to this type of military looking clothing, what is it like in your country? Is it often used in fashion or is it shunned?
