  1. Serenity added a post in a topic General Koreaboo Thread   

    I found this in the comments on one of his pictures.
    Personally I highly doubt he is Asian (or if he is maybe a very small mix), but at least he isn't trying to pretend he is fully korean?
    Also he lists that he speaks Chinese, Korean, and Japanese in his description. He has pictures posted of him doing a study abroad/traveling so I don't really doubt it he can speak them (but it'a probably not past basic level, I'm assuming he was probably an Asian studies major/minor?).

    Really? Because I vaugley remember bubz saying/implying in a vlog or video once that because of all the complications with this pregnancy she isn't planning on having anymore. I forget which video it was in though...

    I understand what you mean. I'm the same where I like Korean makeup because I feel like American makeup can be a bit dramatic/harsh/OTT for everyday wear and Korean makeup seems more natural and softer. I also like Kfashion because it seems a bit more dressier and clean than western fashion which can be quite casual. On places like instagram or tumblr I don't think I'd ever dare tag something as Kfashion or use a Korean hashtag though because the amount of people who will roast you and call you a koreaboo for liking kfashion/makeup but not being Korean is ridiculous...
    Although the true definition of being a Koreaboo is someone who trashes their own race to try to "become Korean" and thinking that Korea is the best magical place in the world, there are many people who will simply call you a koreaboo just for liking something about Korean culture (like makeup/fashion) but not being Korean.

    I disagree 
    Even if she did speak Korean at home, she still went to school in America and would have had to speak, read, and write in english at school so there's no excuse for her english to be this bad.
    She went to high school in America. She went to college in America. She got her degree in America. Heck, she even said in a Q&A video that was even once an English major before switching to being a film major (with minors in education and Korean, which also doesn't explain why her Korean is so bad when she even minored in it in college).
    You need to be able to speak, read, and write at a high level of vocabulary and grammer in college in America (let alone be an English major). If she was able to get through college just fine there's no excuse for her english to be this bad right now.
    Also, if I recall off the top of my head her brother's english is just fine. If Joan's english was bad because she spoke korean at home then why would her brother's english be fine?

    Has anyone seen her newest video? I think it really shows just how much of a hot mess her wardrobe is.
    That kooples dress that she just got (and is also wearing in the thumbnail) looks really bad on her. The silhouette does nothing for her and the puffy sleeves look pretty tacky. (Also sorry if this sounds too mean, but Idk if it's the dress doing it or her but I never noticed just how flat chested she was until she put that dress on? Unless that's just the dress not being flattering on her?)
    Also HOLY CRAP $2000 FOR A POCKETBOOK?! Even if she did get most of the money from a contest, being like "I was going to save this money for rent but decided to buy this bag instead" seems like a pretty immature mentality to me.
    In fact, based on most of the clothes in this video I really don't think she understands the concept of money or fashion. She seems to buy lots of clothes from expensive brands assuming they will automatically make her fashionable when they don't. She spends lots of money on having brand name clothes without even caring what they look like or the quality of them. Take those SJYP clothes she mentioned in the video: She spent a lot of money buying clothes from that brand because of its name and in the end wasted her money on terrible quality expensive clothes.
    Expensive brand name clothes ≠ high quality and fashionable.

    Despite her "busy self" Pony has gotten a nose job before, so if she has gotten work done in the past I don't think her getting double eyelid surgery would be that surprising.

    I'm calling BS on all of this, IDK about anyone else but that pink card in particular looks especially photoshopped to me.
    I don't know anything about the UK but if this is supposedly an "official" document why does it look like their picture was just glued onto the card? The seam is very obvious, their profile shot isn't even centered in the square, and the background on the profile is more of a yellowish-white while the left of the seam is pure white.
    Also on the green and white card above the pink card the picture of the censored out person doesn't really look like them.
    I think these documents are all either fake or someone else's and they just photoshopped their picture onto that card to make it look like it belongs to them.
    I also think this person is just 100% white and is just using photoshop to look Korean, or maybe is actually part Chinese (since they know Chinese) and is lying about being Korean?

  8. Serenity added a post in a topic Jvloggers general discussion thread   

    In other news: we seem to have another Jvlogger leaving Japan:
    Is this starting to mark the end of an era?
    There was another smaller known Jvlogger who also announced they were leaving Japan awhile ago as well.
    Did all the drama in the Jvlogging community finally catch up to everyone and people are just not watching Jvloggers anymore? I feel like a lot of people have been either leaving Japan or stopping Jvlogging recently. IMO I feel like all the hype & era of "jvlogging" is finally starting to pass.

    By now I think it's honestly safe to say pretty much all ladylike fans really hate Kristen. I honestly wish they would just kick off Kristen and replace her with Jazzmyne or someone, If they want to have curvier women representation in ladylike I feel like she would do a better job filling that role + she kinda has a reputation for her fashion & makeup and is just overall more qualified for the job?!
    Jazzmyne seems more confident with her body and appears to know a bit about makeup. Kristen can't do makeup at all and only complains and does everything half ass because she refuses to learn or put effort into whatever they are doing.

    I forgot which video she said it in but Saf even said herself in a video on her channel that she isn't a "beauty guru"/ isn't trying to be one, she is just someone that likes makeup. 
    The reason why Saf became so popular in the ladylike videos isn't because of her makeup skills, but because she was the only one who would actually put effort into whatever they were going in the video. For example, if the video was "Ladylike tries 'XXXX' " while everyone else would pretty much BS whatever they were doing for comical reasons/pure ignorance and lazyness Saf would be the only one legitimately trying to do the challenge.
    One thing I also want to add is: am I the only one who doesn't understand why everyone gets so hyped up over Jen? A lot of people tend to favor her and put her on a golden pedistal for being "The Asian one" but I think a lot of people tend to forget Jen isn't even entirely Asian, she's only half Japanese and half Italian.

    I don't think they are particularly not using protection? Because I vaugely remember bubz mentioning in a vlog once that both issac and the baby she is pregnant with now were "one hit wonders" (I assume as in the one time they decided not to be as careful issac and the other baby ended up being conceived?).

    To an extent I feel like they should know if a word they are saying is wrong. If they heard "so-and-so" say a word and are not completely familiar with it, are they honestly just going to throw it into their songs without completely knowing what it means? They had to at least googled the word at some point and realize its bad, googling isn't that hard...

    This isn't entirely related to the video but as someone who is studying graphic design & typography:
    WTF IS THAT FONT USED IN THE THUMBNAIL
    BESIDES THE FACT THAT THE KERNING IS OFF WHY THE F*** DID SHE USED A SLAB SERIF TYPEFACE FOR THE VIDEO THUMBNAIL?!?! 
    OW MY EYES!! 
    If she wanted to express the words "Chinese Style" she should have used a different typeface. The feeling/ways slab serif fonts are used and the actual message "Chinese Style" completely clash with each other...(Sorry if I'm not making any sense?  )

    Tim must have some job other than working on bubbi brushes, right?
    I honestly have no idea how much youtubers make but I highly doubt bubz makes enough by herself to have had their house built new on her own...

    Has anyone seen her newest videos? IMO her nose has been starting to look different in the few most recent ones, is this just a lot of photoshopping? Or did she get another nose job?...
