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.
