Experts predicted that the ‘fashion itemization’ of masks will continue in the future.

Lee Eun-hee, professor of consumer science at Inha University, said, “As Corona 19 is prolonged, consumers who are tired of wearing the same ‘white’ mask every day are actively expressing their individuality on the mask. I think a variety of fashion masks will be born.”
