It certainly isn’t new here in South Korea, you see it as you are on the bus or walking the streets of Seoul. But it has now hit my classrooms. What am I talking about? Why it’s glasses without lenses. It has been a fashion trend here for a few years, but recently I am seeing more and more students wearing frames without lenses.
Not sure why, perhaps Koreans think it makes them look more intelligent. although when you realise that they are sans lenses, I would think that would destroy the whole look you were going for.
Not sure why this is a fashion trend or why Koreans think this is a good look but it has been around for a while and more than likely will stay around for a little while longer.
