Here’s How Many Myvi’s & Roti Canai’s You Can Buy For The Price Of BLACKPINK’s Outfits In ‘How You Like That’

K-Pop has made waves all.around.the.globe. because of how catchy the music is, how talented the artists are and how well made their music videos turn out to be. K-pop music videos are no joke. They regarded as some of the best productions in the music industry and the effort that goes into them is mindblowing. However, these videos come at a price and that price – is staggering. To date, the most spent on a K-pop music video is approximately $900,000 to $1,000,000 (B.A.P’s ‘ONE SHOT’, T-ARA’s ‘Cry Cry’ and ‘Lovey Dovey’). With BLACKPINK, the costs seem to be levied on their outfits. The girls of BLACKPINK – Lisa, Rosé, Jisoo and Jennie – are fashion icons in their own rights. Rosé is the brand ambassador for YSL, Lisa became the muse of Hedi Slimane, the artistic, creative and image director for Celine, Jisoo is Dior’s Beauty Ambassador in Korea and Jennie is the ambassador for Chanel Korea. It’s no wonder why the girls are always dressed to the T’s but how much actually goes into their outfits – we’ve got the prices here!

 

Because I have so much time (okay, not really, I just really wanted to know), I’ve calculated the costs of some of their outfits and how many 2020 Perodua Myvi’s (1.5L AV AT priced at RM 52,197) and roti canai’s (RM2/roti) we can buy here in Malaysia for the amount the clothes in BLACKPINK’s ‘How You Like That’ music video cost. However, not all the pieces (outfits, accessories, shoes) are included in this article as some have yet to be made available to the public or are difficult to identify.
