K-pop stars strutted down the runway on Sunday, moving to the rhythm of their hit songs.

“K-collection in Seoul,” a fashion show/concert held at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena at Olympic Park in Bangi-dong, featured popular K-pop groups such as Girls Generation, Big Bang, IU, MBLAQ, Infinite, T-ara, Miss A and Secret.

Some of the stars walked down the catwalk decked in impressive outfits as well as showcasing their songs on stage.

Actor Yeo Jin-gu who rose to stardom after starring in the MBC hit drama “Moon Embracing the Sun,” super model-turned-actress Choi Yeo-jin and former basketball player Woo Ji-won walked the runway as well.

About 20 small fashion and beauty brands including B Zuan, 2 placebo, V-Company and Skin Food participated in the event. It was organized by broadcaster SBS to invigorate local, mid and small-sized fashion brands, which are losing ground amid the big enterprises and foreign brands.
