Jessica, a former SNSD member, was caught up in criticism after she boasted an expensive Chanel bag.
Last On November 8, Jessica opened her YouTube channel ‘Jessica JungAfter posting a video titled ‘Let’s see the things we recently shopped for’ on ‘, he shared the things he bought. In the video, Jessica said, “I think I made an impulse purchase. I bought the essentials I usually use as well as pretty things,” he said.
Jessica, who introduced various shopping items, including luxury sun caps, finally revealed a mini-size Chanel bag and said, “As soon as I bought it, the price went up. I think I bought it very well,” he boasted. The price of this model is around 10 million won.
He added, “You can put a card inside and the iPhone fits perfectly. It’s a good size to carry lightly for daily use.” He said, “The reason I bought it well is that soon after I bought it, the price was immediately increased.”
Netizens who saw the video criticized Jessica in two ways.
The first reason is that Jessica’s comment that “not long after I bought it, the price went up a lot” could fuel the recently controversial ‘Chanel Open Run’ phenomenon. Chanel has raised prices for the fourth time this year alone, and there are items that have risen over 1 million won overnight. As rumors spread that Chanel would raise prices from November, a long line of ‘open run’ continued in front of the department store even before it opened. On November 2, just before the hike, hundreds of people flocked to major department stores nationwide where the Chanel store is located.
The second reason is that the brand ‘Blanc & Eclair’, created by Jessica’s boyfriend Tyler Kwon, is currently in a lawsuit for non-payment of wages and default. It is pointed out that it is morally right for a girlfriend to brag about an expensive luxury bag in a situation in which the boyfriend pays the employees’ wages arrears and does not repay the debt. Netizens are responding, saying, “Repay your debts before boasting of your luxury bag” or “Resolve the treatment of employees and wages first.” Tyler Kwon was sued for about $6.8 million (about 8 billion won).
Earlier, Jessica’s boyfriend, Tyler Kwon, said, “It’s absurd and unfair” over the default lawsuit. “I can pay off my debt. I will repay all the borrowed money soon.”
Tyler Kwon is a businessman working in the United States and Hong Kong after graduating from the University of Michigan. Jessica has been dating for eight years since 2013. In Korea, he is also running an entertainment agency, Coridel Entertainment. Jessica is also a member here.
