I guess what people mean by her not addressing black issues is that she talks a lot about Korea but doesn't seem to shed any light on the bad side of Korea. The prejudice, racism, sexism etc that people can/may face living or going on exchange there. She used to talk about being black in Korea or being fat in Korea but that was when she wasn't as popular. Nowadays all she talks about are her over exaggerated story times and whatnot.
I agree. Those brows are tragic, I've seen straight brows on other MUA and they don't usually look like this. Also her way of "canceling" her wig really bothered me usually most wig wearers would not use concealer to make the part look more natural they would instead use powder; but maybe I'm just being picky
That's what worries me. I'm also black mixed ethnicity and I would love if she could embrace and learn more about her background but let's be honest she's probably hoping she's at least 1.1% Korean rather than 14% some country in African or other parts of the world
I'm not saying she can't be more than one color, but let's be honest is why is Kennie doing this now??? What will she get out of it considering she has addressed her race issue previously. And based what people who know her irl have said about her I don't think this ancestry DNA thing is for her to embrace any of her roots
I find that so funny since I remember watching a video of hers where she explicitly stated she was full black, so I don't get this need to confirm with ancestry DNA. I'm not saying using the site is bad, i'd like to try it out one day too, but I just feel that it's a little odd considering she had addressed this topic already.
Nope you're not the only one. The problem with makeup styles nowadays is that people don't know how to modify these styles to suit their faces. You can do your makeup the "Korean way" but it has to suit your features if not you look weird; same thing with the insta baddie makeup not everyone looks good with thick eyebrows but because it's a trend ppl think they need to follow to a t.
Thanks so much! I have an honest question how is she not constantly bedridden with all these mentally, physical and various other issues she has. I know that having any one or more of these illness does not automatically mean you will be bedridden for life but in her case it just doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me how she is able to function the way she does because some of these illnesses, I'm assuming, can be very crippling. I just don't get it with her
Megan's fashion reminds me of the kids, foreigners, I saw in Hongdae who I assume had a very narrow view of what Korean fashion, style and culture is and ended up looking like most boy groups that debut for the first time. I don't think she has an idea of what is actually trending in Korea and I doubt she cares tbh
I wouldn't consider this a eurocentric or white people beauty standard because it's to vague and general. It's more of a "white models" beauty standard which is something few can achieve. Even with the photos I attached below I do not think that these modes below fit the "eurocentric" standard 100%. I messed up the spoilers a bit
Haha I enjoy both groups but honestly pop/jrock will always be number 1 since i can enjoy certain groups music for years to come. Within 2 years all of my fave kpop gg have disbanded however my fave pop gg are still active
I don't know if this is just an unpopular opinion among kpop/jpop fans but I do think jpop is better than kpop in terms of style and genre. Also Jpop groups seem to outlast kpop groups in terms of years being active (idk if that's good grammar sry)
I agree with you. There is something about her "black" that is off. I posted a few pics of what a darker African may look like, Sudanese and Senegalese, in order to show how her skin tone is somewhat off. P.S. They are wearing makeup
She's pretty and all but there are not many Africans/African Americans that are that dark to the point of being black. There some countries in Africa known for having very dark skinned people such a Sudan and Senegal but they aren't the type of black you might find looking at a t-shirt or something. I'm all for body positivity when it comes to size and skin tone but photoshopping yourself to look like something you're not doesn't fix the problem.
I don't get why this is a thing. You can't force someone to speak up about incidents in other countries. I understand we live in a globalized world where we can access all sorts of info but forcing someone to speak up about a topic they don't fully understand or don't care about is ridiculous. That's not how you end racism, prejudice or any type of negativity. smh
