Jenn Im is a Korean-American fashion and beauty vlogger, best known for her YouTube channel, clothesencounters; created with her former vlogging-partner, Sarah Chu in February 2010. Jenn and Sarah parted ways after Jenn moved north to attend UC Davis. (thanks wiki!)

She currently has a continuous 4-part thread on Guru Gossip which discusses mainly how Jenn became a huge sell-out once Sarah left. Thrifting videos disappeared, as well as originality and some of her outfits are either on the wtf or basic spectrum. Almost all of her videos are sponsored in some sort of way, and even when she states it's not sponsored -- most of the items in her video were given for free, which some find deceiving. 

There is also an issue of how she supposedly is a smoker (cigarettes and mj), and while I personally don't see it as an issue because she is an adult and can make her own decisions, many frown upon it because her audience is mainly younger female viewers who probably look up to her. I know there is an old picture of her with a cig:

and this instagram post (posted on 4/20) sparked up (haha puns are fun) many discussions about her and mary-jane being friends (the comments alone are a sh*t show):

This post is also interesting:

There has been speculation that what she portrays on her channel is not she is in real life -- innocent and all, but I mean name one YT personality that doesn't like to glorify their life on YT.

Personally I find her mainly unproblematic and that there is a general consensus that she's a very likeable person. When I read through GG, I was surprised and intrigued about all the information so now I'm just very curious on PULL's thoughts about her.

There is also a released sex tape about her which I don't want to discuss about but bring in light of -- it was confirmed in Guru Gossip that it IS Jenn circa 2013-ish days and it can be found with a simple Google search. It seems like the video was posted as a vendetta against Jenn by an ex but that is all I know of.

i love her makeup videos but god i hate her personality. she tries too hard to be different and almost like an instagram baddie but she has some pride left. i really don't like her and ben because she cries after being separated for only a month in an ldr. some people never even see their so for years.

she really takes her life for granted and is so snobbish ever since she took youtube by storm. she's a huge sell out for sponsored videos and just oozes materialism. 

 

edit;;

as for her sex life and ex history, we shouldn't really discuss it. it's a personal and very private thing that sadly got leaked and it's unfair to judge her for it. it's revenge porn and that's not ok.

I have been wanting to make this thread, but I'm too lazy LOL.

I don't have anything against the girl, but I do find her to be pretty basic. I don't know if she's still going out with the British guy (I forget his name now) but for some reason, their interactions always made me feel uncomfortable. Like, they seemed somewhat forced to me? Maybe forced is not the word, but something about them always come off as awkward in my eyes. 

Actually, I think her crew are pretty basic as well. Running around getting sponsorships and money and doing...what? Spending money? *shrug* Again, I don't dislike her but she rubs me the wrong way for some reason.

I kind miss her old videos when her video-concepts were basic but the content was creative and interesting (even to me as I lack fashion sense and interest). Now she's just become another LA-style-guru and she's losing her uniqueness. Her smile cures it all but I can't help but think she is wasting her talent at times.

I used to watch her videos haha but I quit because they got redundant and boring. I think she's a really pretty girl but kinda has a typical youtube guru personality if you know what I mean. I don't see why people would take a piss on her for smoking weed though, it's 2017 so I'm kind of hoping the negative stigma of smoking would finally die off by now.

I guess I'll go watch some of her videos since I have nothing to do now haha

personally i like her, she seems pretty chill and cute and she doesn't seem to be an awful person. if her actual yt personality isn't her real self i can understand. with a million subscribers she probably wants to act the best way possible (especially for her younger viewers.

I wish I could roll my eyes harder about this! I just think for a group of 20 y/o's to be posing like this seems childish and immature (call me a hater or w/e but y'all get it together). omg #squad #goals!!! I remember this comment when the instagram was called @yungmoneyflock which made them change the name -- 

2r2vg52.jpg

the current instagram is now @the.flock https://www.instagram.com/the.flock/  which is now private and if you check the hashtag #ymflock you can see tons of fans imitating them and they even sold overpriced hats about this lmao

I think their whole relationship (ben and jenn) is just superficial they do look like they're in LOVE but maybe like honeymoon phase-type. Even when they weren't living together, they would see each other constantly which is a lot of $$$ -- another thing that rubbed me the wrong way once I thought about it bc I don't see how they labeled their relationship a LDR as they're both really financially privileged so they were able to see each other like every weekend! 

ignore the spoiler, it's my attachments freaking out

thought this post on gg was interesting:

She is not pro Asian at all. My close friend who is Asian American lived with her and discussed all the problematic things she would say and believe about Asian Americans particularly Asian American men. She only surrounds herself with other Asians if they are who think like she does, and challenges anyone's views who may think differently than her particularly her views on racism according to my friend. The only reason she Travels to Asia is because she has sponsorships from companies who like her because she is Asian like SKII Or any of the companies in Korea that Send her out there. I've know people who have known her personally any nobody said anything positive about her.

I believe that she is not pro Asian as she portrays to be. I've always suspected her to be one of those Asian girls who only dates caucasian guys and sees Asian men as inferior.



I too have also suspected that she only dates white guys and sees Asian men as inferior. Her track record seems to be all white guys. It's becoming so cliche to see AF/WM couples amongst Asian females in the blogging community. I actually found it so refreshing and cute to see Sophia Chang and Silas, and Weylie and Wah. 
I feel like Jenn seems to showcase her culture for views and that's it's popular now to show off your heritage. She probably knows that her she has a lot of Korean American viewers, so they might find her relatable because she's Korean. For the Non-Korean audience, they might find her relatable because she's asian.Then for the non-Asian people, they might enjoy watching her show her culture because it's new and "exotic" to them.

although i'm taking the first post with a grain of salt, i can definitely see jenn being this way. she really only seems to be proud of being asian/korean when its convienent to her, and because it's currently "trendy". she does put out nice vlogs though.

I remember in one of her vlogs where she mentions how she's not an active voter nor is she registered to vote and she's 25, which I mean not being an active voter, yeah okay but not being registered at least is a little ?? but then she also put her two cents on how she and all of us as a society need to be more active and take part of change when her life is literally about being privileged..

THIS! I thought that video was so awkward! During mukbangs, hosts usually talk and interact WHILE they eat not eat two m&m's and edit out the video until the bowl is empty 🙄 if she wants to connect more to her Korean heritage then actually DO the THING

In her ColourPop collection she named one of her lip products by her Korean name saying she wants to connect to her Korean culture more but then has her quad eyeshadow set in French. I know she named her quad set as a pun, which I thought was clever, but again with ~trendy culture~ if you're going to name your colors 1, 2, 3, 4 then I don't know it just seems like a lazy stretch to sound quirky

that voting thing pissed me off. hope this isn't too OT but i honestly don't think people who didn't vote should whine about the outcome of the election. and like i get that cali was obviously going to be blue, but being SEVEN years from legal voting age? it's not hard to register.

OMG and she couldn't even pronouce the french words right! like, if you're creating a product, do your research first! it's really not that hard either?
