Didn't she also say that she was trying to justify the price of the shirt? Joan's stories are getting more and more inconsistent. Gosh, it's kind of disturbing how obsessed she is with Blackpink. There's nothing wrong with liking the clothes idols wear, but solely liking a brand because an idol is wearing clothes from it is childish. Ex: Chanyeol introduced me to the brand Vetements and I personally really like the brand because I find a lot of their clothes amusing since they're so extra. Chanyeol wearing Vetements isn't the only reason I like the brand. Now I'm wondering if Jennie suddenly starts wearing a lot of H&M, would Joan start shopping there too? She did say she doesn't shop there due to "controversies", but I'm wondering if she'll change her opinion if Blackpink is associated with it.
Yeah, her explanation is pretty bad. I'm not Korean, but from my understanding of the culture and its similarity to the Chinese culture (I'm Chinese), they expect you to get married. And it's not exactly like marriage is going to happen without dating. 3-4 years ago she would have been around 22-23 years old (correct me if I'm wrong) so it's not exactly like she's "too young" to be dating and she graduated from university so it's not like a boyfriend would "distract her from her studies". If anything, I feel like her co-workers would encourage her to date or set her up with someone. I was in China last summer and my trainer asked me if I had a bf. I said no and she told me it's time to start finding someone. I was 19 lol. The only way I can see a relationship affecting her broadcasting career is if that person is her superior/someone of importance in her company/field. Maybe it's as peachfuzz said, and it's 2 different boyfriends and she just kinda made it seem like 1 long relationship. Or maybe they've been dating on and off for the last few years?
The only person who remotely gives me Blackpink vibes is the girl in the sparkly top. Like, I can see Blackpink members wearing every piece of her outfit from shoes to earrings. As for Sunny and the girl in the yellow beside her, they tried. Their outfits are edgy and it's not what the average person would wear every day. Joan... just wears the exact same top as Jennie with a boring black skirt. The skirt would look better on her if it was high waisted and it flared out more imo. She could at least accessorize. Didn't she buy the exact same earrings as some Blackpink member or like some very big/statement earrings? Why isn't she wearing them? She could use other accessories too. Belts, chokers, chains, etc. What about her silver Gucci heels? They would work out well here.
I watched it at like 2x the speed and still couldn't make it to halfway. Instead of just talking about these neighbourhoods and cafes, I wish Joan took us there. I feel like this video would have benefited from being vlog style. Instead, she just shows us ig photos, which we are all perfectly capable of finding ourselves.
Why does she need two vlogging cameras? I never understood that. I honestly don't care much for the transparent bag trend. I find it kind of stupid since people are paying so much for a piece of plastic and everyone can see what you're carrying. I mean, depending on what's in that bag, you could pretty much be asking for someone to rob you. The question is though, is Joan's bag designer? On her liketoknow.it, she links to 3 different bags and the only one that looks like hers is the one from Yesstyle. It costs $50 CAD, which is still a lot imo, but at least she wasn't stupid enough to spend like $1000 on a piece of plastic. She does link to some other transparent bags, and one of them is $1000 CAD and looks nothing like the one she's carrying. I see you trying to get that commision, Joan .
To add on: Wasn't she eating ramen in the middle of the night a few months ago? So much for not eating before 7pm. She has a fast metabolism and I feel like she should have mentioned that as a reason why she can eat so much and not gain weight.She mentions that she gained 3kg due to muscle mass, but fails to mention that muscle weighs more than fat. She could have also added on that people shouldn't worry too much about their weight when working out because of this. She's not warming up before her workoutHer weight training is different from what I've been taught in gym class so it would have been nice to hear why she lifts 3 different weights and increases it each time while decreasing the number of reps. Does it help tone her muscles more? Is it good for building muscle mass?? (I've been taught to do around 10-15 reps, 3 sets, at a weight where it starts getting difficult the last few reps). She could have given a few pointers on how to use the machines properly. She only mentioned 4 arm workouts that she does. Does she not work out her legs? Is there a reason for this?What's the resistance on her elliptical? That's also going to affect how many calories she burned. Gosh, she put so little effort into this video. It probably took her less than 30 mins to film. I don't expect her to be an expert, but a little of research and planning could have made this video 10x better and more informative.
Unfortunately, I don't think the hallyu wave will be dying off any time soon so I think Joan's YouTube career will last a few more years. Her views range from 50k-100k consistently with the occasional video doing very well. Her viewership hasn't grown a lot. Furthermore, nothing about her videos stands out. It's the same videos every week and she pretty much says the exact same things in them.
Joan needs to stop saying that she has dry skin. She doesn't. Her skin is clearly dehydrated. My friend mentioned to me this weekend that she always thought she had dry skin, but discovered she has normal and dehydrated skin because dry skin shouldn't be prone to breakouts. Her skin is clearly dehydrated. She also mentions that the Cosrx low pH cleanser isn't stripping at all. I've read so many reviews, especially from people with dry skin that they find it too stripping. I have combo skin and it's really stripping on my cheeks, espeicially if I use too much of it (Joan used a pretty large amount). And like other people have mentioned here, her face looks really oily and shiny. "You never know what bacterias your towel collected." Bacterias???? Isn't the plural of bacteria just bacteria? "This brand is super natural." I get what she means, but it sounds like she's saying "supernatural" lmao. What does "super natural" even mean? That the brand uses a lot of natural ingredients? On the bright side, it seems like she's dragging the products onto her face less.
