Korean darling Sandara Park once again shows us her quirky side, and it’s “benta!”. Instead of the usual designer bags we usually see from celebrities and famous personalities, Sandara posed with a huge “bayong-” like bag on her arm. It’s not just your typical “bayong.”
It’s called the “Bayongciaga” bag. Yes, with a capital “B.”
According to the report of the Philippine Entertainment Portal, Sandara Park brought it from Divisoria, one of the most well-known thrift shopping centers in the Metro.
She shared a picture of it on her personal Twitter account with the handle of @krungy21. As of this writing, the Korean darling’s post has reached 6,381 retweets and 38,062 likes from netizens.
However, it seemed as if the bag has been around for some time now. It was in September 2016 when the “palengke bag” – as it was called – gained online attention after the designer brand Balenciaga released its Cabas Shopper handbag at the Demna Gvasalia’s fall and winter fashion show.
According to the source, lots of Filipinos saw its similarity to the Pinoy “bayong,” which is used to shop in “palengkes” and thrift markets. Balenciaga released their bag with a retail price of $2,000 (₱102,832.00). Some commented that you could purchase the typical “bayong” at around ₱10.00 only.
The report said:
“A number of Pinoy fans thanked her for always picking up on Pinoy culture despite her popularity in South Korea.”
Here are some of the netizens’ comments:
Sandara Park was in the country early this week to visit the launch of her shampoo endorsement with Thai actor Mario Maurer.
