I agree with this. She doesn't seem to live in some huge lavish appartment or whatever and I don't see her flaunting expensive brand things. I'm pretty sure all of her surgeries were sponsored and it's not like she goes around spending money and cafe hopping like other Korea youtubers. Traveling seems to be the only thing she splurges on. She seems to have a lot more subscribers that other Korea youtubers, and between that, her broadcasting jobs, and her store she should make quite a bit of money. Joan's main channel has about half the amount of subscribers as Megan's yet she manages to both travel and buy all of her expensive gucci and brand stuff everyweek. If Joan can afford all of that I'm sure Megan can afford to go on trips every once in awhile. (We also don't know if any of her trips are sponsored or partially sponsored.)
The H&M controversies (or atleast the latest one with that kid and the sweatshirt) didn't happen until after she said "I never step in H&M" in that video so she can't use "I stopped shopping there because of the controversies" as an excuse since at the time they didn't even happen yet.
I remember in one of their vlogs they tried to film in this thrift/vintage store but when they got there they weren't allowed to since I believe that store also sold things from indie designers? And due to copyright the store forbid them from filming. Those stores such as Eyeye, Rola rola, and H&M all sponsor them to film at their shops which is why they mostly shop there. One of the reasons why they don't film at other stores could be because they aren't allowed? I'm not too familiar with their older videos but they also never came across as people who like thrift shoping either so I understand why they wouldn't want to film that type of videos. They FINALLY filmed a styling video a few days ago which was a nice change of pace. I'm pretty sure everyone overall agrees we wish they would continue making sewing/fashion videos again at this point.
Well I guess Joan has a reason to call her vlogs "Episodes" now? I was checking out the Viki app and apparently "Season 2" of her Vlogs will now also be streamed on Viki along with Q2HAN'S Vlogs as if it was some TV show or Kdrama. For the record: The "Episodes" uploaded so far are not special content creates just for Viki or anything, they are literally the same exact videos as her vlogging channel and the same for Q2HAN's "Episodes" too...
Taking into consideration that neither of them knows the first thing about makeup or skincare, If they weren't sponsored they probably wouldn't even be making beauty videos in the first place. Q2HAN may be experts in terms of fashion, but even they have admitted themselves that they lack in the makeup/beauty department.
Did anyone else notice how heavily photoshopped Qjin is in this photo thumbnail?! Her face looks nothing like that in their videos and her chin is so pointy it's almost in "Dorito chin" territory. Come on Q2Han, you guys are pretty much the only non-problematic popular Kvloggers. Please don't start doing this...
The saddest part is, I don't think she mentioned it again in this video but she did say in an old one she originally was an English major before switching to film. On an unrelated note: I think Joan's makeup actually looks pretty nice on her in this video. All of those peachy colors really compliment her.
I haven't watched the video yet, but I mentioned before lindy said she was planning on releasing a line of lipsticks and stuff this year. If she is suddenly trying to revive her beauty channel I wonder if it's to try to sell her new makeup.
Joan has no excuse, but Sunny is actually a busy person and might not have time to attend events. Unlike Joan and Q2HAN, Sunny has a full-time job outside of YouTube (with the TV show she is on) so she doesn't have as much freetime as them to do events. Joan might have more subscribers, but her makeup skills are horrible, her skin is terrible, and she has ZERO sense of fashion. Do you really think companies want people like that attending their events? Tbh the reason why she never attends anything could very well be that no one wants her representing their products.
I never realized she wasn't friends with Tsuruko anymore? Since Tsuruko was friends with Venus and Mika was friends with Tsuruko I always gave the benefit of the doubt that's how Venus and Mika became friends. I did start to get a bit suspicious though when Mika suddenly made a YT channel and began to get really close to Venus. Tbh I hope Venus doesn't get that hurt in the end when she finds out Mika is only using her.
In her millions of hashtags she's always included things such as "#ulzzang" and "#Koreanfashion", so I wouldn't be surprised if she always had a slight interest in it. Plus, imo it seems for the past year or so Jfashion has been dying in popularity and Kfashion seems like the next big thing so tbh I wouldn't be surprised if she only went to South Korea just because it's the new trend. She seems to have become close friends with Venus though, I'm surprised she'd want to leave right away?
