    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

I only started watching her vids not too long ago but I think I probably almost finished watching all of her daily vlogs?! I love her personality but she seem to cafe hop a little too much. What do you guys think of her?

I personally enjoy her videos. She's the reason why I decided to try out COSRX and it was basically one of the best decisions in my life. She really knows her stuff.

About the cafe hopping, cafes are extremely popular in Korea. Like, there will be several of them within a close proximity. Catching up with people and even business meetings are often located in cafes. If there's so many choices, why would you stick to one when you can mix it up and go to different ones? It's great that she explores different ones because it gives a lot of tourists options depending on where they will be visiting.

Yeah I love the cafes she introduces too but it's kinda like "we're done with this cafe, next we're heading to a cafe, and after that we're heading to a cafe". Don't get me wrong, I love her vids too, just find the number of cafes in one vlog a little too extreme.

Lmao i wanted to make a thread on her but i completely forgot about it. 

I started watching her like 2 years ago but only for her skincare reviews, and just started watching her vlogs recently, Anyways i do like her, i think shes genuinely a nice and honest person. shes honest about her sponsored products, and very open towards her viewers imo??? 

Tbh i think her videoss are very mediocre, Shes not like crazy talented at makeup & fashion as other gurus. But i still really like her product reviews esp skincare. Also i think shes a very good speaker?? i get bored of chat videos very easily but tbh i dont find her videos boring at all? Like, she knows how to express things well and keep her explanation simple?? 

but it bothers me so much everytime she does kpop related stuff bc to me its almost like... she's fishin for koreaboo viewers??? Idk.

yea i thoughr it was just me that find her cafe hopping too wild. I rly like her cafe videos, but It almost seemed too staged for me? Like, who would go on 3 cafes each day.

Not sure about the kpop related stuff but she sure looks like a genuine fan of kpop. I watched one of her vlogs and she mentioned that she would camp outside YG's building. 

Exactly about the cafes! I'd rather watch more of her shopping around town even though the places she shops at are pretty much the same every time (3CE...). Probably another thing that bothers me is when her vlog titles are like "Exploring Itaewon", etc, but the places she went are only 2-3 cafes in an area nearby Itaewon. 

BUT, I still think she's a nice girl and I like the way she speaks too. xD

oooh. my bad, shouldnt have judged her too quickly. i just avoided kpop related videos in general because im not into kpop. now that i think about it she gave me that kind of impression because she's close with sunnydahye and imo sunny really did fish kpop fans / koreaboos for the viewers?? 

lol yeah, she literally only shops at stylenanda and aland. i really like her exploring concept but i think she should improve it more ya know.

the only kpop group she really talks about is big bang, so there's not a lot of kpop in her videos! and i think she said in one of her vlogs that she visited a few kpop stores because subscribers often asked her where to get kpop merch.

I like her and watch her daily vlogs too. I think her vlogs are fun and i think she is a very honest and hardworking girl so i support her and like her more than her friends(sunny,edward). Her skincare videos are good but her makeup tutorials videos are mehh

i find her videos kind of calming?? maybe its her voice because she works on radio and also her editing style. i feel she does the cafe-hopping vids best out of all the k-vloggers (((cough megan)))). i love her vlogs and her hauls, also not really a fan of her makeup tutorials :alpacaheadshake:

Funny how we were just talking about it and she uploaded a K-pop related vlog. Personally I don't really like Sunny esp after she went for plastic surgery. She looked too different imo and now she just looks like a typical Korean girl who undergone plastic surgery.

I really like Joan and watch her videos mostly for her personality. She's one of the most genuine vloggers that I've came across and I hope that does not change. Her videos are not groundbreaking nor exceptional but I enjoy them nonetheless.

I don't see cafe hopping as a problem and she is making an effort to try new places based on friends' and viewers' recommendations. A lot of youth in Korea still live at home with their parents so the default hang out spots are usually cafes. When I go back to Korea I hit up at least three cafes per day myself.

Joan and I are the same age so it's understandable that she's brand conscious and sticks to shopping at places she knows she likes. By the time you're in your mid-twenties you have already developed your sense of style and go with quality over quantity. A lot of locals avoid buying clothing on the streets or at the subway stations because quality can be a hit or miss.

That said, I like her as a lifestyle and fashion vlogger but wouldn't mind if she showed more of her life at home instead of just out-and-about "shopping and cafe hopping" though I understand her reluctance to film so candidly.

lolll. i dont have anything w/ sunnys ps as long as shes happy about it. but it just bothers me how some of her vids like "kpop group pronouncing xxxx". i find those videos irrelevant and rly fishing for kboos honestly? but ye anyways.

oops im sorry, i think my previous comment causes misunderstanding. i did mention that she literally only shops at stylenanda and aland, which im not against it at all since i do the same thing as well. i was just simply mentioning it (if that make any sense?)

and by improving her exploring korea concept i mean the cafe hopping thing. but it all make sense now that i read your comment, and i just came to realization that i did hop from cafe to cafe. what i meant by too wild / extreme was how quick she cafe hops, but obv im dumb bc i forgot that she might have spent there for like hours and had fun smh. and the improving part was just i wish shed review the cafe more in-depth (???) or like review the food/drink the cafe serve? but yeah, i dont have experience in blogging or reviewing stuff, so i might be ignorant about this ?

Oh no worries, I was just simply stating as well. I think people tend to forget that with daily vlogs, things are bound to get repetitive since we are creatures of habit and tend to stick to what works for us. Also, keep in mind that Joan is not a tourist with time constraints so she doesn't feel as obligated to visit tourist-y or new destinations that often unless a majority of her viewers request it.
