everyone wants to look like a K-pop star

We just did a segment on this for TV… on how Taiwanese stars are being sent to Korea to learn new dance moves and acquire new looks (uh, a visit to Korea’s ‘beauty clinics’ maybe?).

It’s easy to spot the wannabes.

– bold use of eyeliner, check.

– edgy hairstyle, check.

– androgynous look, check.

Check out Van Ness Wu’s look for his new album. Where did the plain (not to mention, well-ironed hair that was the fashion then), clean-looking (if not plain) former F4 go?

Before that, there was Aaron Yan, who went through some sort of rebirth and coming out … Korean? The Fahrenheit baby has become… the Fahrenheit body?

I dunno… I want variety in pop culture. I don’t want to tune into Mandopop and get confused thinking I am seeing Korean stars singing in Mandarin. Everyone doesn’t have to look and sound the same and uh, not everyone likes K-pop either.

  1. omg…someone else who doesn’t love kpop.

    Though I do listen to some of their song’s because its catchy bu most definitely not a kpop fan.

    I like Wonder Girls though but for a different reason.


    • oh I like Wonder Girls too… their Nobody song. but I really don’t have patience with Kpop. I went to watch an SM concert once for my work and I got a headache afterwards I didn’t even finish it. but I’m fascinated by the phenomenon as a journalist. fascinated in the sense that I want to know what they see coz I don’t see it hahahaha!
