I'm not sure if her wedding was free. In one of her Insta stories she was talking about how a major stresser was trying to budget and pay for everything with their wedding and that's why she had been absent from youtube for a bit.
Does Megan still live in Seoul? I thought she moved to a different city, when she got her new house? Because her new home seems huge and that could be because rent is less expensive in the new city that she's in. Or am I thinking of someone else?
From what we've seen of her Cali friends they seem to be well off as well but I think that's because most of them (if not all) work in the tech industry. In her state vlogs she mentions are they mention that they work at places like Facebook, Google, Linkdin so it makes sense that their well off. As for her Korean friends only Sunny, Claudine and Erin come off as well off to me. Anyway, it wouldnt surprise me if Joan felt the need to flex because she's probably insecure "normal job" in some aspects like her friends. What sounds better "I work at Facebook as an engineer" or "I make vlogs on Youtube showing myself going to cafes and getting my nails done". It wouldn't be so bad if Joan still had other goals outside of youtube, like she had the beginning. Earlier in her career I remember her saying she wanted to be an announcer or something like that, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. If she worked on building something outside of youtube she probably would be less insecure and not feel the need to flex so hard for her friends and followers.
Not to get too off topic but Jenn Im I feel like is going through the "I still want to dress like a teenager phase". And what's even worse is that her brand Eggie is a reflection of that. From the poor quality of the clothes to even the name its self. It's almost crazy to think that both Joan and Jenn are the same age (28) and yet one (Jenn) seems to have no sense of style or a style idenity what's so ever and is seems to be trying to reclaim her "youth", while the other one (Joan) actually had a style identity (minimalist, clean, few colours) has actually regressed to the point of losing that idenity so she can achieve wannabe kpop idol status. Although style is subjective and personal, Jenn and Joan shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Aimee lol out of the three Aimee def has the best style and knows her style idenity to a T. Joan and Jenn would benefit from taking style tips from Aimee.
Is anyone else surprised that her brand Eggie isn't sold at Revolve, especially since she's suppose to be on of their "it girls" I guess you could call it. Both Aimee Song and Camila Coelho have their clothes sold there.
I am actually shocked. I knew they talked about starting their own brand and I actually had high expectations because of their fashion background. Out of all the influencers who have started brands or collections recently (Chrislle Lim (CL collection), Jenn Im (Eggie) and most recently Aimee Song (Song of Style) I assumed that their brand would be in the quality of those (albeit higher than Eggie) and it's so disappointing. I could have made this. I have made shirts like this in school for tie-dye days. They have really gone downhill.
I wonder why she decided to basically give up her english youtube channel? She was also doing well on that one as well. I just feel like she's alienated her english speaking fans because she uploads on her Indo channel frequently without english subs although people keep commenting on her youtube and instagram asking for english subtitles and why she never uploads in english anymore.
I remember seeing someone comment on one of her Insta post back when she went to London, if she would ever consider moving to London and Joan said something to the effect of "of course I would love to live in Notting Hill" (of course it has to be Notting Hill..). Joan is all about things that are trending/trendy. Right now Korea is one of the hottest places to be (esp when it comes to beauty/skincare), so of course I don't see her leaving Seoul anytime soon. But of course Joan goes where ever the next trend takes her, so once Seoul stops being in, she might move back to Cali or New York or even London (esp since she has friends there also and she studied abroad there).
I guess the phone thing isn't what really bothers me because I can't really fault her for being on her phone considering she has two kids, but what gets me is that when she's not on the phone she still looks disinterested and not engaged. There was one vlog where Joan and Angel did the usual Joan things (cafes and shopping) and Angel barley spoke a word and if she did they were short sentences and answers. idk, out of all of Joan's friends Angel and Edward are the ones I like the least.
Can I just say that out of all of Joan's friends, I think that her friend Angel is extremely rude. In all the vlogs that she's featured in with Joan she always looks disinterested and is always on her phone. You know she's bad if she's making me feel bad for Joan. lol
Does Joan know how to drive/have a license? (no shade or shame if she doesn't. I'm 25 and I don't have a license). Obviously living in a large city like Seoul with all the transportation options she wouldn't really need one but I'm curious.
If some re-brands herself, comes up with better and consistent content then yeah it could happen. But it won't because that involves hard work and we all know that girls avoids hard work like the plague.
