Crayon Pop Attends 2013 MAMA In Their 'Bar Bar Bar' Track Suits, Helmets, And Capes: Why They Wore It on Red Carpet?

When the group arrived at the Red Carpet podium, they told the commentators, which included 1TYM's Danny Im, they were not going to change their concept anytime soon. When Crayon Pop were asked if they'd try a sexier type of concept, they said they were more comfortable with their current style. Is it that Crayon Pop would rather be conservative or have they branded themselves as the sporty, YouTube sensations which they have become?

For their 2013 MAMA stage, Crayon Pop added capes as accessories to to their normal Bar Bar Bar attire. The capes were added at the suggestion of Choa, who said Bar Bar Bar sounds like an action hero anthem.The group added capes and alluded to using laser guns to pay homage to the Japanese superhero anime, Gatchaman or Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, which is popular in Korea.
Ellin, Gum Mi, So Yul, Choa, and Way were an adorable alternative to an increasingly sexed-up show with acts like Trouble Maker turning up the heat. Having fans that are both male and female aids Crayon Pop in making the decision to stick with their current concept. However, will fans grow tired of it?
When Crayon Pop performs in showcases, they do not wear the full attire and helmets that have become their international trademark. Much like PSY, who performed his Gangnam Style stages in his green tuxedo, Crayon Pop has become known for their quirky, athletic fashion. It is definitely a breath of fresh air in a sea of artists who are striving to push the envelope further than their predecessors.
