Key Trends in the South Korea Fashion Influencer Marketing Market

Fashion influencers provide businesses with a different way to engage in product sales and help understand the preferences of their customers. Companies ask their preferred influencers to provide content on jewellery, apparel, cosmetics, skincare, and footwear via comments, polls, and direct messages. This makes it easier for influencers to provide companies with deep insights into customer desires and expectations. They are encouraged by brands to participate in fashion shows, designer dinners, events, special excursions, and social media photo shoots wearing their clothing or other products. If a salary is involved, the influencer may be compelled to designate such posts as paid or sponsored material. Forbes, a business publication, called fashion influencers "the new celebrity endorsements." They are referred to as "IT girls" and "IT boys" by social media.

 

The Growing Trend of Appointing Virtual Fashion Influencers  in South Korea

In December 2021, convenience store franchise GS25 appointed Rozy, South Korea's first virtual social media influencer, to promote the business's products and promotions. Rozy is a digitally made intern agent that works in a fashion and art plaza in Dongdaemun district, South Korea's fashion and tourism hub, to promote a variety of independent fashion firms. Over 123,000 people follow Rozy. Customers would hear from Rozy via content based on the metaverse, a hybrid of the real world and the virtual world that offers first-hand experiences. Other factors such as high disposable income and high standard of living motivate consumers to spend on the goods and services promoted by influencers, thereby bolstering the fashion influencer marketing industry of South Korea.

 

South Korean University  Launches the Country’s First Influencer Department Due to the Growing Impact of Social Media Influencers on Consumers

Daegu Cyber University established the nation's first influencer department earlier this year with the goal of fostering industry professionals and content-based social media influencers. Planning creatively, recording, and editing procedures are the most crucial abilities for content providers. However, students must also understand who will be in charge of the commercial aspects of the position, such as contacts with advertising or a larger audience. The emergence of OTT media services like Netflix, Disney+, and Korea-based Wavve, Watcha, and Tving has expanded the field of competition for makers of digital content beyond platforms like YouTube and TikTok, thereby augmenting the fashion influencer marketing market in South Korea.

 

K-Pop Idols' Influence in Setting Fashion Trends and Influencing the Masses

The popularity of South Korean culture has dramatically increased in recent years. The popularity of drama series and its particular musical genre, K-pop, which is now regarded as a genre unto itself, are sometimes connected to the steady growth of its culture. When referring to K-pop idols who are regarded as icons in the business, the words "it boy" and "it girl" are resurfacing and are often used. One of the other characteristics of K-pop celebrities is their capacity to change and command everyone's attention and set various fashion trends while they're in front of the camera or working behind the scenes. 

 

The omnipresence of K-pop fans is driving the fashion influence industry of South Korea. BTS Jimin is regarded as the "IT boy" of the K-pop industry for his unique style and personality. BTS Park Jimin has been continuously ranking no. 1 in the brand reputation rankings released by the Korean Business Research Institute, which makes him the most desired brand ambassador by various brands.

 

South Korea is one of the top smartphone users in the world. The internet penetration is approximately 97%  aiding in the increased usage of e-commerce, online banking, and social media, among others. High-speed communications networks and world-class IT infrastructure enable tech-savvy customers to actively discuss new product launches and fashion trends in the country.

 

Market Analysis

Based on influencer type, the fashion influencer marketing market is segmented into mega influencers, macro influencers, micro influencers, and nano influencers. On the basis of fashion type, the market can be segmented into beauty and cosmetics, apparel, and jewelry and accessories.

Market Share by Type

Micro influencers provide instant marketing of a business's goods or services with high engagement rates. Because micro influencers have a larger following than nano influencers, marketers can more easily identify the demographics and mindset of an audience in a particular area, enabling them to create more specialised goods, artwork, and information. As their audiences relate to them, micro influencers may also assist fashion firms in strengthening their trustworthiness, which is crucial for creating strong consumer relationships. Nano influencers also ensure a decreased chance of connecting with fake followers and foster closer connections with their audiences, which results in more filtered leads for businesses. Additionally, using nano influencers for marketing gives businesses and agencies a more cost-effective choice, creating market expansion prospects.

 

The growth of fashion influencer marketing industry of South Korea is expected to be aided by the factors such as high penetration of internet, increased consumer awareness due to the growing popularity of social media, and globalization among others.

In August of 2021, Sidus Studio X developed Rozy, a virtual person made with 3D technology and facial data that was well-liked by MZ generations. Rozy has promoted environmentally friendly initiatives as well.
