This Is Some Serious Kpop Effect!!!!!

So I was on YouTube one random night watching my favorite kpop groups when I saw this video in the suggested videos. I, being the weird kpopper I am, decided to click on it and see where it led to thinking, "It couldn't hurt right?" Little did I know that I would be seeing into the heart of Koreans and how Kpop truly effects them. It makes me wonder if Koreans think us Americans have 'big eyes.'
If you were Korean, if you're not already Korean, and living in Korea, do you think you'd follow this image trend? What are your thoughts on this image trend?

I really don't understand the obsession with "perfect" beauty. Take that girl Hwain, her eyes were really pretty before the surgery. She didn't have to change them. When everyone starts getting the same thing done they all emd up lookong alike. There's no diversity, no different types of beauty, nothing that makes you unique. I understand why they do it but I prefer natural faces.
But the girl Hwain was already pretty, and they guy with 17 surgeries was cute before the surgery. T-T this is sad, they're all pretty, they didn't need to do this. But it's ok, I won't judge them.
@KellyOConnor I completely understand and agree with you. Also, since you mentioned it: Hwain, want to have open eyes when all I want is to be able to have Asian eyes. As they say, "the grass is greener on the other side."
I think if it makes them happy let them do it. We have no right to judge because it's their life.
not all kpop stars do plastic surgery (if that is what they are implying)

Ladies I have to ask? What!
I was reading the NBC news online when this article popped up about various plastic surgery procedures and I just had to read it! One new fad was quite disturbing to me. Some people look fine with a little nip or tuck here or there granted! I am not against or for any procedures what I am for is that a person feels good about themselves. Sometimes feeling good about oneself may require a little help on the outside to meet today's so called standardized looks if that is what makes someone happy and feel good about themselves. I will say these Stars are making a fortune off their well let's just say "freak" bodies that a normal person will never have nor did they without a lot of expensive surgery. The Stars created these looks for a reason. Their own market niche and most likely their own lack of self esteem and needing attention. I just think we as women may want to remember that these are our only bodies. We can take better care of ourselves through a healthier lifestyle of healthy eating, exercise and loving ourselves. If that still isn't good enough to help us feel better about ourselves well then there is the old fashioned way! Try the latest hairstyles or wigs, new clothes, new or permanent makeup, and hey there are a lot of Spanx stuff out there that will give you a big butt smaller waist, stomach, thighs and bras that we all know will do a lot of false advertising and add several cup sizes! Wow! Look at all the options out there that are not invasive and don't put someone's life at risk! Again, it is just a option. The one thing in this entire article that really threw me and I found disturbing was that women once having had Brazilian waxes suddenly noticed their lady parts. Worse they felt insecure about them and had plastic surgery to remove some of them to an extent. Yet it made things uncomfortable to put it politely. Maybe I am old at 52 or maybe I am ahead of the curve I am not sure. I have never had a Brazilian wax. Personally, I have been shaving my underarms, all my leg from ankle to all the lady part areas since I was 10 years old. I can't be the only one who has any idea what the lady parts look like! Everyone has to tinkle right? Can no one at least feel them or see the slightest? I mean come on! Is this the most ridiculous thing ever? Has the women become so square? Prudeish? Uptight? Is it about our bodies, our lady parts only, sex? I just have to ask how is it possible? Why not just leave the lady parts alone why have them surgically altered? In my mind that is beyond crazy! Isn't that called self mutilation or worse? Read the article see what you think and check out their videos about the butt injections gone bad. I mean ouch! Whatever anyone decides to do please have it done by a legitimate professional with all the best credentials and in their medical offiice. Don't go off the grid tempting as it is! Please, we don't want to lose you or have anything happen to you at all. We your sisters out here love you and accept you for you no matter what. Reach out we are here for you. http://nbcnews.to/1ape9jL
Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
Plastic Surgery in South Korea
Que tal peeps! This is your chica Jessamine aka @amobigbang here to talk about a serious topic. We all know that looking your best is something very important everywhere, but I'm going to concentrate on Kpop and South Korea. Disclaimer: KpopINT does not promote plastic surgery nor judges those who are considering plastic surgery. There will be a discussion of a controversial topic in this post. Plastic surgery is very popular in South Korean culture and especially in Kpop. Most Kpop stars may get some type of plastic surgery done for personal reasons or career reasons. Many idols do feel the pressure just like regular citizens to look good and even perfect at times to achieve the notion of what is beautiful. When skincare and makeup is not enough they tend to turn to the knife. Even people in other countries come to South Korea to get plastic surgery since South Korea has so many options and awesome plastic surgery surgeons. "Seoul, South Korea, is the plastic surgery capital of the world, with more procedures per capita than any other nation" (2015, Baer). Source None of these images or videos belong to KpopINT. Writer Jessamine aka @amobigbang KpopINT Chairs: @bbyitskatie @Sailynn @KpopBeat KpopINT Fam: @elaynethtrumpet @JohnEvans @LenaBlackRose @LexiMintkgtopty @ParkHwaYoung @parktaemi @tayunnie COMMENT YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW! Before and After Pictures This is a mixture of some before and after pictures of Kpop stars and regular South Korean citizens who had some type of plastic surgery. When people get plastic surgery you will see the double eyelid or chin/jawline procedure done to give the appearance of wider eyes and that "V" jawline. However, "the most common procedure in Korea is blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it's the most popular plastic surgery operation in the world, with 1.43 million people getting it done in 2014" (2015, Baer). Double Eyelid Surgery Overview This operation is very controversial. Some say Asians get this procedure to look more Western or to wash out their beautiful Asian features. While some say they get this surgery to look more youthful and awake. "Critics say that the operation makes patients look "less Asian," while proponents say that it's simply a matter of beauty - bigger eyes equals more attractiveness, essentially" (2015, Baer). Oh and don't think women only seek out this procedure. Men do as well. "Hang-Seok Choi, the director of JK Plastic Surgery, a Seoul-based clinic that sees 10,000 patients a year,and the 20% of his patients that are male" (2015, Baer). Many people may pick this procedure since it is very cheap compare to other procedures and less invasive. The prices range "between $1,000 and $3,000" (2015, Baer). Double Eyelid Surgery Advertising Look at how this plastic surgery procedure is advertised. They promote this ad by suggesting it will give you innocent and pure look. Buzzfeed: Plastic Surgery in South Korea I wanted to give you a break from reading lol. This video is what inspired me to make this post. These people send their photos to South Korean plastic surgeons to see how these surgeons would alter their faces. Some people were shocked by their results. This video teaches some plastic surgery Korean vocabulary and speaks about the topic. She speaks about plastic surgery in general in Sout Korea. Eyelid Surgery History Now this is where things get deep. I for one did not know this fact until doing some research on the topic. As said earlier some argue that this surgery is to wash out beautiful Asian features and to replace them with Western features. "The double-eyelid surgery was reportedly introduced to South Korea during the Korean War, which lasted from 1950 to 1953" and for this critics suggest that this surgery is a is a symbol of white America's history of cultural dominance over South Korea" (2015, Baer). This was a hard pill for me to swallow. No one wants to think that at all. It all started with this surgeon "American plastic surgery pioneer Dr. Ralph Millard, who was stationed in Seoul from 1950 to 1953 to do reconstructive surgery for the war wounded" (2015, Baer). Source says that he concentrated or basically spoke ill of the Asian monolid feature. Even in his reports he said some really racist comments and you can read them by clicking on the source link provided on the first block of this post. Women who married American soldiers and women who were prostitutes who wanted to appeal to American GI's and fit into American society demanded this surgery (2015, Baer). Controversial Topic As I said this topic has two sides. One feels that South Koreans are getting these surgeries especially the double eyelid surgery to look Western. While others just say people get it to look more beautiful or not as tired. People say Koreans reasons are not racial for getting these procedures. Seoul-based plastic surgeon Minhwa Na - says: "I would get serious complaints if I performed the procedure and the Korean patient gets a crease like the one of a Caucasian person. What people want is a natural crease that is suited to Asian faces," she said. "The whole idea that undergoing this surgery is an attempt to look white is absurd" (2015, Baer). Cultural critic Moonwon Lee tells says: "That while people don't personally believe they're trying to look white by getting their eyelids done or other plastic surgeries, they're still moving away from Korean-ness. The big eyes, small faces, and perky noses that are hallmarks of beauty in Korea aren't natural to most Koreans" (2015, Baer). When looking into the manner each side in.my opinion is valid. However, it seems like the surgeons support the more modern less racial argument and the cultural experts lean more so towards the racial or "Western wash" idea. My Thoughts... I feel like people will have different reasons to get any kind of surgery or alteration. Some may get it to look more Western and they may have issues with self hate. However, some may get it because they simply like the look and think it is trendy. Just like having straight hair in America. Some people people of color may straighten their hair to look more "White" due to self hate and others may do it because they like the look or style. At the end of the day who are we to judge? If no one is forcing this idea on you and you may be against it there is nothing to really get upset about. I hope people will love themselves and if they get these procedures it is because they like it as a trend not self hate.

3 Cosmetic Treatments that Celebrities Love
Hollywood stars look picture perfect on the Red Carpet. They work hard to achieve that uber-glam look by having a healthy diet and fitness routine. But every now and then, they do get a little help from their dermatologist to refresh their timeless look. Here are the top 3 treatments that celebrities indulge in... Botox Botox is used to achieve a tight and shiny forehead, lift-up eyebrows that droop with age and get rid of the creases that occur on the outer corner of your eyes when you smile. Almost every celebrity facing the camera gets Botox at some time in their life. When this treatment is done in the correct way, with low doses, the face looks ageless. But when the dose is too much or wrongly placed, then our celebrities end up looking more botched up than beautiful! Lip Fillers Celebrities have lip fillers for two reasons. The young ones may feel insecure about thin lips and want to plump up their pout. While the older ones lose lip volume as they age and also develop whistler's lines or smoker's lines. Lip fillers are like art, or sculpture. Your dermatologist is responsible for creating a beautiful shape that looks natural and complements your facial proportions. Badly done lips are called a 'trout pout' or 'duck-bill lips' and there's nothing appealing about them. Skin Tightening Everyone of us including celebrities use anti-aging creams. But that isn't the true reason behind their tight skin. Celebrities indulge in skin tightening treatment such as Thermage, Ultherapy and Fraxel once a year. These are usually done when they are on vacation, to hide the down time. These skin tightening treatments can reverse several years of skin aging with just a single treatment session. The result is a lifted, firm and rejuvenated skin. If you wish to glam up your look consider speaking to your dermatologist about these treatment options.
Why Do Some Men Have 'Boobs'? And How To Get Rid Of The Problem.
While the condition is colloquially known as "man boobs," the medical term for the swelling of male breast tissue is gynecomastia, which translates as "male breast enlargement." At least 25% of men between the ages of 50 and 69 suffer from gynecomastia, and male breast reduction surgery (also known as gynecomastia surgery in Mumbai) is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. What Exactly Is Gynecomastia and How Does It Affect You? Gynecomastia is an endocrine disorder characterized by enlargement of the male breast tissue. Gynecomastia is caused by a hormonal imbalance in which the body contains a higher percentage of oestrogen than is usual. During puberty, boys' bodies generate mostly testosterone and only a trace of oestrogen, the primary hormone in the development of female sexuality. When testosterone levels are lower than normal and the ratio of the two sex hormones is higher than usual, it is imbalanced. As a result of increased oestrogen levels, male breast tissue can enlarge. Even though gynecomastia is not dangerous to one's health, it can be an aesthetic issue with emotional consequences. A lot of causes might contribute to gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can occur at any age in men and is typically caused by hormonal changes. Because of the oestrogen left over from their mother's pregnancy, newborn males usually have bigger breasts after birth. It is possible that a hormonal imbalance will reoccur during adolescence or as an older man, resulting in a higher oestrogen to testosterone ratio. Most boys who are born with enlarged breast tissue due to oestrogen in their mother's placenta will find that the swelling has gone a few weeks after birth. Pubertal gynecomastia, on the other hand, affects young guys during puberty, beginning as early as the age of ten and lasting up to the age of eighteen. In certain circumstances, gynecomastia recurs later in life. As men age, their testosterone levels fall and their fatty tissue grows, which can lead to senile gynecomastia (male breast enlargement). Hormones, on the other hand, are not the main factor. Obesity, malnutrition, liver disease, hyperthyroidism, hypogonadism, prostate cancer, and renal failure are just a few of the medical conditions that can induce gynecomastia. It can also be caused by drugs like marijuana or heroin, prescription medications like anabolic steroids, corticosteroids, digoxin, and calcium channel blockers, as well as over-the-counter medications like Flagyl, Propecia, Spironolactone, Valium, and Zantac, and herbal remedies like lavender or tea tree oil. The source of a disease does not always result in a noticeable change in appearance. How to Identify and Treat Gynecomastia The pain in the breasts when gynecomastia first occurs can be excruciating. A bulge of fatty tissue could be the first sign of a disease. The lump may become more sensitive to touch as the swelling continues, however this sensitivity may eventually fade. While one breast may appear larger than the other at initially, the proportions gradually even out. Gynecomastia is described as any extension of the male breast; however, multiple grading systems exist to differentiate between the various degrees of enlargement that can occur. A shortened version of the Simon and Rohrich classification models is provided below: Grade I: Minor breast growth with no extra skin (250g breast tissue) Grade IIa: Moderate enlargement with no extra skin (250 to 500g of breast tissue) Grade IIb: Moderate enlargement with slight extra skin (250 to 500g of breast tissue) Grade III: Severe hypertrophy (more than 500g of breast tissue) with grade I ptosis Grade IV enlargement is severe, with grade II or grade III ptosis. Gynecomastia Surgery is a surgical treatment for treating the disorder. While gynecomastia is not always a medical concern, male breast reduction surgery is becoming more popular as a way to alleviate the disease's visual and psychological impacts on the male breast. Liposuction and excision, either alone or in combination, are the two most popular and effective procedures. Liposuction is advised for people with mild to moderate gynecomastia, which is characterized as breast enlargement with small gland hypertrophy and little excess skin. Another common discovery is that many individuals have a little amount of fibrous glandular tissue under the nipple, which can be removed by direct excision by a small incision around the areola. When performing liposuction for gynecomastia, procedures such as power-assisted liposuction (PAL) or ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) can help to remove fibrous tissue more efficiently. In more severe cases, more intrusive procedures may be required. For extreme gynecomastia, skin excision is required to address the ptosis and excess skin. Liposuction will not suffice on its own. Following the removal of drooping skin and tissue from the chest, it is usual for the nipple-areola to be temporarily removed and returned as a graft in a more appropriate location on the chest after many severe cases have occurred. During the recovery period, patients frequently wear bandages and support garments to prevent edoema and give support for the chest as it heals. Depending on the procedure, a catheter may be momentarily put beneath the skin to remove any excess fluid. Most people can resume their normal habits within a few days, however some patients may experience edoema for several weeks following the treatment. Gynecomastia surgery cost in Mumbai ranges from Rs 90,000 to Rs 1,50,000 in 2021, and it should be noted that the procedure is not covered by most insurance policies in the nation. Alternative treatments for gynecomastia that do not include surgery According to a recent study, non-invasive treatments for gynecomastia do not have the same level of success as surgical procedures. Androgens (such as testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, and danazol), anti-estrogens (such as clomiphene citrate and tamoxifen), and aromatase inhibitors (such as abiraterone acetate) are examples of these (letrozole and anastrozole). Many patients report no meaningful improvement as a result of the treatment. It is possible to give testosterone to people who have an abnormally low level of the hormone, and danazol, a synthetic testosterone that suppresses oestrogen synthesis, may be helpful in some cases. Gynecomastia is a medical disorder for which there is now no effective treatment. It may be best to address any underlying reasons of gynecomastia that can be addressed through a change in lifestyle before resorting to prescription medication. If gynecomastia is not caused by hormones, the first step in treating it is to identify and treat the underlying reason. The therapy of underlying systemic disease comprises the removal of a tumor as well as the treatment of any offending chemicals, such as medications or illicit narcotics, as well as the discontinuation of any offending agents. The essential point to remember. Men who have enormous breast tissue may seek treatment to shrink the size of their chest. Gynecomastia affects a huge proportion of the male population during the course of their lives, and while the medical issues linked with the illness are minor, men with enlarged breast tissue may seek treatment to lower the size of their chest. Liposuction or excision can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to treat gynecomastia. The effects are usually long-lasting. Patients with gynecomastia caused by non-hormonal factors such as prescription medications, illicit drugs, or weight gain must maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid surgical intervention and long-term problems. You can ensure that men receive the most appropriate treatment for their problem by consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon in India.
Arm Liposuction Vs. Arm Lift - Which One Is Right For You?
For people who believe their arms are a problem area, there are two options. Liposuction and arm lift surgery. The best procedure for you will depend on whether you want to remove excess fat or tighten sagging skin. In some cases, combining both treatments may be recommended by your cosmetic surgeon if he or she believes it will create the greatest results. Whether the root of someone's arm problems is excess fat, loose and sagging skin, or a combination of the two, it can have a substantial influence on self-confidence and mental health by making them feel uneasy and nervous about how they look in particular types of clothing. It can even prohibit people from completely enjoying their life since they avoid beaches, local swimming pools, and any other situation that requires them to expose their arms. Liposuction can be used to decrease excess arm fat. Liposuction is an excellent procedure for those of you who find it difficult to remove unwanted excess fat from your arms, especially if your skin has the elasticity to tighten and shrink back to a normal tautness. You risk having loose and drooping skin if your skin does not have the ability to instantly snap back into place, which is why your plastic surgeon in Mumbai may advise you to combine your liposuction treatment with arm lift surgery. Arm lift surgery can remove sagging skin on the arms. Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty surgery, is frequently performed on patients who wish to remove unsightly drooping skin that forms the dreaded "bingo wings." When a person loses a significant amount of weight, the skin on the arms sags. Liposuction followed by arm lift surgery may be effective if you've lost a lot of weight but still have some on your arms that you're having difficulties getting rid of. It's crucial to note that there is a limit to how much fat may be removed if each cosmetic operation is performed concurrently, so chat to your cosmetic surgeon about what's practical. Most arm liposuction in Mumbai and arm lift surgery treatments necessitate a small incision on the underneath or back of the arm that is well concealed. If fat needs to be removed from the outside of the arm, it can be more difficult to do so in a smooth contour, thus scarring may be visible in some cases - nevertheless, these issues, and whether they relate to you, should be discussed in depth during your appointment.

Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: ๊ตฐ๊ณ ๊ตฌ๋งˆ (kun go-gu-ma) ๊ตฐ means "roasted" and ๊ณ ๊ตฌ๋งˆ is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! ํ˜ธ๋–ก (ho-ddeok) ํ˜ธ๋–ก is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) ๊ตฐ๋ฐค (kun bam) We just learned that ๊ตฐ means roasted and now we learn another word: ๋ฐค means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. ๊ณ„๋ž€๋นต (kye-ran bbang) ๊ณ„๋ž€ means egg while ๋นต means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after ๊ตฐ๊ณ ๊ตฌ๋งˆ :D ํ˜ธ๋‘๊ณผ์ž (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! ํ˜ธ๋‘ means walnut and ๊ณผ์ž means cookie or snack. Therefore ํ˜ธ๋‘๊ณผ์ž is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! ํšŒ์˜ค๋ฆฌ๊ฐ์ž (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called ํšŒ์˜ค๋ฆฌ๊ฐ์ž because ํšŒ์˜ค๋ฆฌ means tornado and ๊ฐ์ž means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
