The 2013 Met Gala fundraiser was a star-studded event that featured some of the biggest names in fashion, entertainment, and the arts. However, it was also the first time that two K-pop acts had been invited to the event. Choi Siwon from SM Entertainment’s Super Junior and (at the time) YG Entertainment’s Psy both made their appearances at the 2013 Met Gala.
The event was held in New York City and was hosted by Vogue magazine. It was attended by many celebrities and fashion icons, including Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. However, the two K-pop acts that made their debut at the event were the first to do so.
Choi Siwon was the first K-pop idol to make an appearance at the Met Gala. He wore a custom-made tuxedo by Gucci and was accompanied by his Super Junior bandmates. Psy was the second K-pop idol to make an appearance at the event. He wore a custom-made suit by Dolce & Gabbana and was accompanied by his YG Entertainment labelmate, G-Dragon.
The two K-pop acts were met with a great reception at the event and were praised for their fashion sense. This was a major milestone for K-pop as it was the first time that two K-pop acts had been invited to the event.
Since then, many other K-pop acts have made appearances at the Met Gala, including BTS, BLACKPINK, and EXO. K-pop has become a major part of the fashion world and the Met Gala is now a must-attend event for many K-pop idols.
Choi Siwon and Psy were the first K-pop idols to make their appearances at the Met Gala, and their presence at the event marked a major milestone for K-pop. They paved the way for other K-pop acts to make their appearances at the event and helped to bring K-pop to the forefront of the fashion world.
