    Do you think they got her permission to use her video in their commercial? Lindy doesn't live in the states and wouldn't even see the commercial, so unless they paid her for it I don't think she would agree to it...

    Does anyone else feel like the majority of her "backstory" was made up? Some of the points in here just don't make sense...
    If she "lived in South Korea and grew up speaking it" then why did she minor in Korean in university and pretty much re-learn it? (Also if she had all of this experience + learned it again in college + has been living in Korea for years now why is her Korean so bad?) If she already knew Korean wouldn't she have tested out of the placement tests?!
    Also, why is she suddenly just mentioning now she use to live here?! She never mentioned living in Korea as a child before, she only ever said she grew up her whole life in California. I feel like if she really did use to live in Korea she would have gloated about it more in her past videos.
    Am I the only person who feels like she made up parts of this story?

    I disagree with you.
    Although this is not perfect makeup, it is IMO significantly better than some of her previous makeup looks. Her eyeliner is actually pretty even and solid here (no splotchy uneven lines), and her lipstick looks evenly applied here as well (no smears or lipstick applied outside the lips).
    is this beauty guru level makeup: no. But it is just generally normal/decent makeup.

    Has anyone seen their get unready with me routine? Can we please take a minute to talk about how much of a hot mess their skincare routine is?!?
    For those who haven't watched the video yet, just to sum it up:
    1. Makeup removing cleansing balm
    2. Makeup remover wipes to remove the oil cleansing balm
    3. Makeup removing soap bar
    4. Makeup removing cleansing water
    5. Toner
    6. Skin lotion water  (I think it's just a moisturizing toner?)
    7. Innisfree Green Tea Serum
    8. Calming baby moisturizer/gel (They use a moisturizer made to calm rashes on babies for their face moisturizer).
    9. Sponsored Sulwhasoo bloomstay vitalizing cream
    10/11. Spot Treatment Gel and/or Spot Treatment barrier cream (The barrier cream, which is supposed to be a spot treatment, they put all over their face).
    A 10-11 step face routine is a lot, and WHO IN THE WORLD NEEDS TO USE 4 DIFFERENT MAKEUP REMOVERS IN ONE ROUTINE?!?
    I've heard if double cleaning to remove makeup but four?!? And don't even get me started how bad it is that instead of using water, they just use makeup remover wipes to remove their first makeup remover oil. Why did they think it was a good idea to remove a makeup remover with another makeup remover?!?
    I've also never heard of using your acne treatment stuff as the last step in your routine, wouldn't the products not work as well since they just layered 4-5 moisturizers/creams before it?!
    They may have a talent for clothing, but when it comes to skincare they're pretty much just as bad as Joan...

    I thought this was worth a share here.
    If you guys have ever heard of the app Amino I'm a member of the Kbeauty Amino community and today someone posted a poll asking who would you want to do your makeup and someone commented saying instead of the options given, they would rather prefer Joan.

    Atleast Q2HAN always gives gifts to their fans at their fanmeets?  Although with the amount of fans they have not everyone might get a gift Q2HAN does spend their own money buying small gifts and candy to make goodybags for the people they meet at fanmeets.
    They also tried giving a "Unicorn Dandruff" to every QTEE they run into in the past but due to them being forgetful then stopped it.

    I saw Lindy ranting about this on her Twitter today, I understand what she's saying but I think it also really shows just how far she has drifted from being a beauty guru youtuber:

    "Why would I have to put effort into my appearance?!?"
    Idk Lindy maybe because your name is literally BubzBEAUTY 
    And you are a BEAUTY GURU
    I understand the point she is trying to say, she is a full time mother and breadwinner now and she doesn't have time for makeup and skincare anymore. If she is truly giving up on all of that though can she PLEASE just officially end her beauty channel then?!?

    In that why she's in Korea video Joan mentioned that she actually graduated college early, though she stayed longer and got a job doing administrative stuff/event planning so she could walk with her friends.

    I know this is a really old video but I thought I would bring it up again.
    I was trying to look up why Joan is even in Korea in the first place (since I was kind of confused why she is there. For awhile she didn't have a job there outside of YouTube so I assume she must have some sort of citizenship/permanent residence there?! Though unlike Q2HAN who moved for medical reasons I couldn't figure out why Joan moved there...) and I found this:
    Just to sum things up:
    - In her junior year of college she did a study abroad through Yonsei University (I don't know anything about universities in Korea, but they are a pretty prestige college aren't they?...)
    - Through her study abroad at Yonsei she interned at the Kpop show After School Club at Arirang  (?) TV
    - The English teaching she did in Korea was through the TALK program which she did for one year then left for the radio show job.

    I don't know if any of you guys follow the Korean Beauty Youtuber Sunny (She also has a thread here) But apparently Joan was kissing up to her in the comments of her latest video:

    Sunny is nearly 10 years younger than you.
    Leave. Her. Alone.

    I could just be reading into it too much, but does anyone else feel like Coco was kind of mocking Joan in part of her recent haul video? (The spring haul part 2 video)
    Around 3:40 in the video while reviewing some product she jokingly says "It has papaya in it so it HAS to be good" and then starts to laugh alittle. In one of Joan's reviews awhile ago didn't she say something kind of dumb like "This product has xxx in it so I KNOW it HAS to be good"?
    Once again I could just be reading into it too much, but with that coincidence when I first saw her video I kind of got the impression she was making of Joan at that part?

    They sent her on a trip or they asked her to come to Japan? Because Kawaii International has made it very clear in all of their contests/kawaii leader stuff (atleast in the past) that if you win and you want to participate in all of the Japan kawaii leader stuff you need to pay for your trip to Japan yourself. You can ask Kawaii International to help you find accommodations and stuff, but they are not sponsoring/paying for your trip to Japan.
    Unless kawaii international lied about them not paying for the Japan trip, This Kelly Eden person and Jillian as well paid/are paying for their Japan trips out of their own pocket.

    it could be that, but I do remember her mentioning she is a host on some TV show aside from YouTube & kpop so that brings in money as well I guess?

    (It isn't letting me insert the YouTube video so here is the link: )
    Apparently Cocosori was promoting on Musicbank and does anyone else feel like this performance was really awkward?!
    Their outfits were pretty cute but Coco in particular seemed very stiff in her dance moves/facial expressions. She also seemed to have problems hitting high notes and at times I couldn't even hear either of them sing...
    I think Sori has potential, though no offense to Coco but I don't think she is really cut out to be a Kpop idol. She is more successful at youtube.

    I believe this is only while you are in/attending university though? Judging by the date of the Instagram post when this happened they had already graduated from university which means they had no health insurance.
