They have the heart warming dramas, the annoyingly catchy pop songs and they also have, apparently, the world's best cosmetic products.
Now, Koreans will also get their own exclusive Js. Oh my Venus' John Kim will be all over this one, for sure.
The 30th anniversary of the Air Jordan 3 is only just beginning.
Two weeks after the re-release of the classic Black Cement and the introduction of the Free Throw line edition and some weeks before the debut of the Jordan 3 in the flyknit and Tinker Hatfield make ups, the Air Jordan 3 "Seoul" takes center stage.
The exclusive edition, created by Hatfield and Dan Sunwoo, celebrates Jordan's dunk contest win and the Seoul Olympics, both of which took place in 1988. It was first worn by South Korea's national team head coach Hur Jae recently and now the pair is expected to release in extremely limited quantities.
Where you ask? In Korea, of course.
This Air Jordan 3 looks like a mixture of the White Cement and the True Blues, but with its own set of features that make it exclusive to South Korea.
For one, it has Korean Taegukgi flag on the right tongue. Special embroidery is also seen on the inner tongue of the shoe with the left one featuring "Seoul" and the right one saying "Harmony and Peace" both in Korean.
The coveted Nike Air branding and the classic elephant print are also there for good measure.
The Jordan 3 Seoul will only release at the Jordan Hongdae store and on Nike's Korean website. The drop will be on March 10.
