Hallyu, or Korean pop culture, has officially seized the world into its inspiringly catchy and fashionable grip.
Sims 4 is no exception. With salivating fans across the globe consuming gargantuan amounts of K-Pop music like BTS and raving about such Korean dramas as Squid Game, it is no wonder that Sims 4 developers would get around to capturing these trends in their life simulator.
Incheon Arrivals Kit is slated to release October 5th. Included in this pack are the current — think 2021 Seoul Fall Fashion week current— threads often touted by the biggest of international pop-stars on what has become one of the world’s biggest international fashion runways: the Incheon Airport.

What to Expect
The Incheon Arrivals kit comes fitted with the ready-to-wear apparel currently popular amongst Korean youth. Players can expect loose-fitting knits, chunky shoes (affectionately called “turbo trainers”, ankle pants, trenchcoats, plaid button ups, military boots, and sleek head-to-toe black looks.

Korean trends show young people gravitating to simple neutrals and cozy, oversized items, particularly knits. Players can expect a lot of this trend in the newest kit.
Koreans are also cozying up to large trenchcoats as fashion pieces, a look Sims 4 seems to have embraced in spades:
Note the oversized trainers in this outfit too.
The Incheon Arrivals kit will appeal to players who adore comfortable fashions in muted neutrals. As some Korean youth move away from what may be considered traditional wear, they seem to edge closer to what may be recognized as “90s grunge,” and we here at Simmer’s Digest are more than happy with this.
