The classic style of the baju kurung never fades
The baju kurung is such an effortlessly classy outfit that it’s been embraced by everyone in Malaysia. From the classic baju kurung to the baju kurung moden, each of them has its charm that suits everyone so well.
Originating from the 13th century, the baju kurung is no longer popular in Malaysia, it has even touched international waters. Specifically, some of our favourite K-Pop eonnies have even donned the baju kurung! I mean, with the effect K-Pop has had in Malaysia for the past decade or so, it’s unsurprising that our favourite K-Pop stars are returning the favour. Here are a couple of instances when our favourite K-Pop stars rocked the baju kurung.
Say Nobody With The Wonder Girls
Making a place in our hearts with their hit song, “Nobody”, the Wonder Girls were a worldwide phenomenon. In October 2012, the epic Wonder Girls took place in Stadium Merdeka with 4,000 viewers!

Halfway through their concert, the Wonder Girls emerged on stage with gorgeous multi coloured baju kurung while belting out their famous song, Be My Baby.
