Dreadlocks are ropelike strands of hair created by either braiding or matting. Although it may look careless and a bit messy, it takes very careful planning and a lot of time in order for dreads to turn out even. Dreadlocks have been associated with black culture and hip hop for many decades, but these days the style is making its way to Korea!

You will see many Kpop/K-rappers wearing dreads to look fiercer for a stronger image.  These boys are baadd, and they’re not afraid to show it.
