If style was a classroom, then Korean celebrities are the master teachers of airport fashion. These past few months, Hallyu’s favorites gave that designer masterclass as they walked the halls of South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, while en route to fashion weeks in Milan, Paris, London, and New York.
