Yeah, it looks way more accurate in the restored picture. Still maybe a tiny bit off, but that could actually be the angle. The thing is that even though her legs look a lot longer in the first picture, it doesn't look nice because her torso is soooo long as well! If you imagine her standing there just in her underwear (non sexually, of course) and look at her stomach, it would be sooo extremely long and stretched out! I don't even know where her bellybutton or waist would be located in the first picture. It almost looks like separate pictures of her legs, torso and head glued together.
Maybe she bought a display bag again. Does anyone remember that? I've bought a display bag before, because for one it was the last one and two because the bag was originally "only" 170€ and they gave it to me for 140€. Plus I had already decided on that bag weeks before I went out to get it. But with Joan we are talking 1000$ plus! I would settle for nothing but the best with such kind of item. And the discount wasn't even worth it anyway. She should've gotten one secondhand in pristine condition and thus could've saved 300 bucks in the end. She's not smart with money, or fashion for that matter. And her new Gucci does look a bit off. But we should wait and try to get a look of it in a different position to make sure.
I still think they are very sweet and genuine girls, but I feel like they got stuck a bit lately. Due to them gaining a huge following recently, who are mostly very young and tend to fetishize Korea a little bit (at least I see it like that.. it doesn't seem too toxic yet, quite innocent actually, but looking at the general situation regarding a lot of teens and Korea, it does ring a bell for me), I feel like they might think they have to act this way. I do think that this is the way Qjin and Qwon act around each other, which is fine, but they definitely left anything that was professional about them in the past. I do think that it could be even exhausting for them to always act this high energy, but I feel like they don't really know how to take it down a notch, as their super young fans would probably criticize them for acting different. I think they got themselves trapped in a corner with all the over the top cutesy stuff. I guess they just wanted to show themselves as relatable people, but then their followers pushed it, and jumped on it excessively. They seem a bit overwhelmed with the amount of presents they receive as well. I don't think that they know how to go back now. Also, as some people have mentioned, it seems like they tend to do the faces to cover insecurity. Nobody can judge your looks if you don't act serious and pull faces all the time. Qjin pulls her mouth and nose to the side nonstop now. I don't even think she notices and that's usually a big sign of someone being uncomfortable or insecure. Btw, they talked about why they went vegan, and the situation felt a bit weird. I didn't know Qjin was that sick before. I only remember her having the shingles. They said they were going to talk about it later, but didn't touch on it again in the vlog. Qwon even said that Qjin should explain it, as if she didn't want to say anything that Qjin didn't want to share. Qjin then went on to say that she was extremely skinny and started to get nervous and glossed over it a bit, only to say "because of my mental problems" later. I hope they are both doing alright, but since they said they are still a bit scared that Qjin could fall sick again, I'm a bit worried.
Wow, I haven't watched any of her videos for weeks now (maybe even months? I don't even know anymore).. Is her face always this bloated recently? I guess sometimes you don't see things if you watch people continuously, but her face is definitely super bloated. It almost looks like she has water in her face. It doesn't really look like fillers or anything of that nature, but rather like she ate a bag of chips right before going to bed or something. Girl, you need to watch your diet! And not to loose weight! Does she ever eat any fruit? Anything that's not super salty? Oh, and even after not watching her for a long time, I couldn't make it through the entire thing. Why is she filming only herself when she's out with someone and they say something? I miss the days were we could really see her do something, like having a fun time with Erin (who I still appreciate a lot). Ugh.. YouTubers seem to let stuff get to their head way too much..
I honestly don't think that he was "throwing shade" (like you said, it sure sounds like this, because she's so unreasonable). It's just the only sane way to think about it. Ivan has made amazing progress with his skin. There's no way your skin will clear up and be balanced if you change up your products every day. I have somewhat of a "skin care wardrobe" myself, which basically means that you have more products than you use currently, which you can use every now and then according to your skins needs. Like maybe some extra oils that you don't use currently, but you incorporate them on days where your skin feels dull. But with Joan it's a roulette of "Which product will I slap on my face today?!" without any thought put into it. Skincare is such a personal thing, and just because some of the products she uses don't work for some of us doesn't mean they generally don't work. But they can't work the way she uses them. Your skin needs at least a month to show effects of a new product. Sure, you can see if it's moisturizing or drying even after the first use.. but what if it suddenly makes your skin flake after a week? What if you get dry patches you never had? Clogged pores or weird skin texture. She wouldn't even know which product made her skin break out. I already find it hard to figure out what's wrong when my skin acts up, and I patch test, I use it on half of my face only for at least a week, I don't use any other new product for a while. At the end of the day, the question remains: What do you use skincare for? What's the purpose for you to spend so much money on it? To keep your skin looking young and fresh, even in your later years? To protect your skin from any dangerous types of cancer? To limit break outs, or even to get your cystic acne under control? If any of those are your reasons, then you should treat your skin gentle, with a lot of love and care. I won't spend as much money on skincare as I do now, only to diminish any effect they could have or even make my skin worse. It's only going to be a new way of consumerism without any care for the environment or yourself! Joan is super unreasonable when it comes to this, our favourite YouTube "minimalist, quality over quantity".
Ladies Code has definitely taken a step back ever since that horrible accident. They had two big comebacks, but they seem to take longer time off in between comebacks. Sojung was hurt pretty bad in the accident and got intensive treatment. She was still in a wheelchair when the funeral took place. I assume they have to get at things slowly, because I'm sure that every comeback is a big emotional burden. That's obviously just speculation! But maybe that's the reason for Ladies Code to not put out too many records in a shorter time. Although, Ashley seems to do quite a bit of work outside of Ladies Code. The radio show and such. And the other two were doing some projects outside of the band as well if I recall right. I guess the band activity could be a difficult thing to do, even after a lot of rest.
Well, I use a puff to apply sunscreen if I have to reapply it throughout the day. That's the only case when that happens though! And I only do it because I can't use my hands while I'm at work or somewhere around town, and because I don't want to ruin my make up. It makes zero sense to use it this way in the morning while you're at home. You need to use about a teaspoon of sunscreen for your face. She sure didn't get enough on there to protect her skin properly. And she really should stop touching her face! I tend to touch the sides of my face or my forehead (especially when I'm stressed) and even I can see irritations after a while, and I have pretty good skin (not acne prone at all). The chin/mouth area is even more prone to breaking out from touching! She really needs to stop doing that. Although I know it's difficult to break such a habit. I feel really bad for thinking that she looks old. I don't even think that it could be helped with skin care. In the long run, yes, definitely, but as of right now? I'm not sure. I think it's her bone structure, her smile, her smile lines, stuff like that.
See people, this happens when you give these YouTubers too much free time and free products. And I cry like a little baby when I accidentally spill a tiny drop of my favorite serum, and start to panic when my holy grail cream runs out, because I haven't checked if I can afford it this month. And I'm happy with the way I live currently. I get by just fine and splurge quite a bit every now and then. I earn good money for now. But I value my products. And I know that 25€ more or less for the month can be a lot if you've got other stuff planned as well. I don't get this wasteful attitude. Even if I had infinite money to splurge I damn well wouldn't smear it on a fucking piece of paper! Didn't their parents teach them anything?
But see, you did it with good intentions and not naively. But Joan is one of those people that believe the water quality is better and it helps your skin. There's no harm in saying you think the bottle is beautiful and you want to reuse it, or even saying you think it's a cool trend because you like things being aesthetically pleasing. No harm in that. But if you run around saying "ooooooh the water quality is soooo much better", nah.
Am I going crazy or are those tops cute? I mean, maybe not on her necessarily. But it looks quite nice on her now that she has dark hair. The dark hair definitely elevates her outfits. That more or less red frizzy thing she had going on before made everything look bad. I like it for some strange reason. She looks cute.
Well, I think she mentioned that she wanted to start reading books and work out once she doesn't daily vlog anymore. So I guess that's that. I think she's gotten a lot skinnier too.. maybe I'm just seeing things. I can't even watch her put on her skincare products. She's sooo rough with her skin, always tugging it.. grrrrr. And I don't think her routine is smart. She puts on so much skincare, but then goes to the gym, sweats it off, washes her face and then puts make up on her bare face without any added moisture. And stuff like this is the reason why I don't think that this girl has dry skin! I can't put on any foundation or concealer without some moisturizer underneath. It just doesn't work. Oh, and her new end card is sooooo messy!! I got a slight shock when I saw it pop up.
I don't think you get the point, Newbee. She didn't shortly move to America. She was living there almost all of her life. She only shortly lived in Korea and moved back there a few years ago. So she is fluent in English. However, her English is lacking INTENSELY. And her Korean skill is almost not there at all. So basically: She can't speak Korean other than a few sentences, and she can't speak English eloquently. And there is no reason for either of these situations. Because she went to an english speaking college and then lived in Korea for a while. So she would have to at least be decent in both of these. Look at Q2HAN for example! Their English is not perfect AT ALL, they have some classic grammatical issues in their speech pattern. And their Korean tends to be a bit stiff. But they are at least decent at both of them. And they try to improve, too. Their Korean vlogs are a way of learning for them, and whenever they lay out a script for their videos, you can hear that they look up different words and try to incorporate them. So Joan has no reason to lack the way she does. There's just no way to talk around it, Newbee.
