I've noticed more and more that groups are going all blonde for their concepts. SM seems to take it one step further and adds lighter eye contacts on top of that.
For Red Velvet's Ice Cream Cake, Wendy didn't even look Korean!
Personally, I was obsessed with this look on her, but I don't know how I feel about this trend as a whole and what it could mean for how people perceive beauty in Korea.
It's already pretty tough as far as beauty standards go: paler skin, long legs, and a symmetrical and small face. It's been changing and improving recently, but I wonder how blonde haired blue eyed idols will affect these standards.
The rest of the world is already constantly told by American pop culture that blonde, skinny, and white is beautiful (not my opinion! just what our movies, music, and models still spread) so when KOREAN pop culture adopts that too, its really hard to escape.
You want your role models to look like you, and with these looks, these idols no longer look Korean to me.
Yes, they look stunning and gorgeous, but I'm still curious what affect it will have.
Seriously, I'm so obsessed with how Wendy looks in this MV its unreal.
Let me know what you think in the comments below!
