    Isn't Lexis the same school Venus went to? They also don't sponsor visas as far as I remember. So is she there on a tourist visa while "working" as an influencer?

    Leigh and Soo Zee. EYK never mentioned them again after telling fans to respect their privacy but they both actually made their own channel
    So people assumed they had a fallout of some sort

    She is saying something like "I wonder why people always ask why I don't eat. Now I know. I really eat a lot so what's the problem". At least that's how I understand it, my Korean isn't that good

    Probably repeating what other said, but here we go 
    -Everyone sounds and looks the same nowadays. While same-look is worse in girl groups and same-sound with guys. 
    -Girl groups are more fun
    -SNSD should just stop. I always liked them but this comeback is bad. They honestly stopped being good years ago.
    -Members are not friends. Just look at older groups like Sechskies, they even said most of them had no contact for years. Lee Hyori didn't invite and wasn't invited to other members wedding. Only a few actually like each other IRL
    -You should be able to dislike a song from a group you like without people jumping you and telling you "don't listen then" an "a real fans supports every song"
    -fans should stop spamming the views in the YT comments I wanna read opinions of the song not that shit
    -I-fans have to step of their high horse. Stop acting like you're more moral and aware of the artists mistreatment by fans and companies than k-fans are. We're all supporting the same shit by listening and buying
    - Shipping is gross. Stop fetishizing gay asians too.
    -No famous idol will probably ever come out. They either stay single or have a fake marriage (just look at how Incheon Queer Festival went. I wouldn't either)

    I've posted a picture above  I remember the ribbon especially since I liked it too. But I guess it doesn't matter really  Just wanted to mention that I think it's more a sign of her Korea obsession than a kink or something. Whatever it is I guess we can agree it doesn't look good on her.

    I believe you. I doubt they were a big trend but I did see a few Koreans I follow wear them. I only remember one though by name. I was just trying to say that she probably saw it on Instagram herself and had to jump on it because some Koreans were doing it  maybe the Baby looking one was the only one she could find

    Obviously not trying to defend her since it's super creepy with the shirt together and the other foto in childrens clothes but these hats were kind of a trend in Korea. At least from what I can tell from Instagram. During the summer I saw them a lot on my feed. Just as an info

    I have been thinking about downloading HelloTalk again recently. I can't say I had a really bad experience, maybe it is much worse for english natives. But I also did block guys after a few weeks. Just judging from the community area you could see how many Korean guys were only there for girls. Like there were always some guys posting "Who wants to talk on the phone" or something. There was also one who would always post recordings of him playing guitar and sing. 
    I always enjoyed to look at the posts from Koreabooss. There were so many "korean learners" who didn't know shit and would always post pictures of Korean food or just anything to get attention. Maybe I really will dowload it again just to screenshot some cringe  
    Another bad one is Speaky. I got rid of it after a few days. Not sure how it is for english speakers but I had the feeling there were nearly no girls on there. One that seems rather serious is Tandem but I'm sure it has creeps as well.

    I don't wanna come of as a WK but I feel if she would talk about Korean politics and history people would give her shit too? Especially with politics. Like If she would, people would tell her she has no right to talk about it since she is not Korean and only studied it. I also think Koreaboos aren't really interested in these things so she wouldn't get a lot of views.
    I understand your criticism though

    I think it happend before she really changed her style? I just remember it was very sudden and that neither wanted to talk about it. There were just some vague post on tumblr I think. I always had the feeling something bigger happend but I guess we'll never know.

    When I was in Korea I saw quite a few girls wear them out, like in the subway. But mainly middle and high school students. Can't really say I saw adults do that.

    When it comes to colourful hair I think it is somewhat popular it's just that people can't have it because of work or school like you said. I mean Irene is such a popular model right now and she is known for her crazy hair. So I would say it is somewhat of a trend

    Her pronunciation is not good but I heard worse accents(I didn't understand my Mongolian classmate at all), her's is just the typical english speaker one. But you can really hear she doesn't really understand what she is saying, she completly lacks emotions when speaking in Korean. And then from No 9 onward she just goes back to english even though saying it in Korean wouldn't have been difficult in my opinion. How long has she been studying Korean at this point? She seems to only know standard I am/I have structure.

    I looked it up and treatment can be up to 15.000€ but if you have two reports from therapists, making it a diagnosed medical problem, insurence will cover it. Just getting these reports takes long. I think you have to live as your true gender for about 2 years before getting those.
    But I did see this "fake boy" trend a lot when I was younger and more into japanese pop culture. All those girls dressing like Visual Kei artists and going by male names. I guess it has something to do with attention, female Idols just don't get the same attention and are not being put on a pedestal as much. After all the majority of fans are straight girls.
