K-drama fan? Check out these bags— they’re affordable and totes adorbs


K-drama fever has hit the Philippines by storm. And it’s no surprise, really. There are heart-pounding scenes, cheesy moments, and even a few funny ones that we’d replay. Some may even say it’s because of the daebak abs on all those oppas onscreen or the good-looking female leads that we aspire to look like (or even be), but no matter why, a lot of us (yes, me too) love our Korean dramas.

Now, if you want to live in the K-drama moment much longer, a lot of them offer merch— from stuffed toys to soundtracks or even accessories and clothes that make you look and feel like your favorite unnie. But while these can be costly, I’ve found this cute place that offers statement bags for every K-drama fan. And yes, they’re totes adorbs. Pun intended.

3 Broke Chingus, by the very name, is a new startup business and passion project by friends who love their K-drama a whole lot. And so, with some creativity and a pun game so strong, they’ve banded together to make K-drama-inspired statement bags.

Just look at some of their designs!

This should be everyone’s new mantra

Check out their Instagram and see what other cute designs they have in store! Each tote bag is priced at around PHP 280 to PHP 300, but without shipping. To properly care for your bag, just make sure to hand-wash and let it dry naturally. Store in a dry place, and lay them flat so they keep their cute colors.

Due to the pandemic, there may be some delays in your delivery, but don’t worry. Your bags will get to you eventually. BRB gotta collect them all!
