What Is With All These LINES?!

It seems like every day there are new body and beauty trends in the Korean entertainment industry.

Honey thighs, chocolate abs, proportions, proportions, proportions.

One thing Korean entertainment is consistently obsessed with, though, are body lines.

S-Line

This is for voluptuous ladies. Women who have some curves! That means hips and breast and the whole nine yards!

X-Line

An X-Line is a Korean term for a certain hip waist ratio that results in an hourglass figure. Krystal is the main example of an X line because of her long limbs and torso.

V-Line

Koreans often use this term to describe a sharp and narrow jaw line. Lots of idols get surgery to have this sharp jaw!

and then there are the bagels...

Bagel (Ladies)

Bagel for girls is made of the words "Baby" and "Glamorous". It means someone with a baby face with a voluptuous body.

Bagel (Gentlemen)

Bagel for men is made up of the words "Baby" and "Gladiator". It means a baby faced man with a powerful muscular body!

What do you think of all of these beauty standards? How do people survive with all these labels?

I honestly do not know how they do it. Every time I try to lose weight I end up lasting one day and then I end up eating something sweet the very next day. Haha! They really need to lighten up their standards though. It makes me feel sad for the idols that they work so hard all of the time for their music and whatnot, and then many of them still feel that must work out for hours and eat so little.
if I were a line I would be an o line.....round everywhere!!! lol
i think its fine to recognize and admire body shapes but i think idols are under way too much pressure to look the way they do
Bagel for guys: me: do you mean, " Kim Minseok " ?
bagels are yummy. 😂😂

Drinking in K-Entertainment
While it might be significantly less in Kpop than in typical American pop, alcohol is a constant presence in K-entertainment. I have no problem with people drinking to have fun - that's fine! But in Kdramas or Kpop, people are often shown drinking in two situations: 1. When they're angry/sad 2. When they need confidence And then they often drink until they are so drunk that they can't walk, stay awake, or speak. Which is often a warning sign for alcohol poisoning. To make matters WORSE. In K-dramas it is often when one of the characters is drunk that a kiss scene happens. You're Beautiful for example. The girl is so drunk that she falls on the boy and accidentally kisses him. From that point on they start to fall in love. This makes it seem okay to make advances on drunk or sleeping people - which it is NOT. Seeing behaviour like this over and over again in media can make your brain automatically think "I'm sad - I need to drink" or "My crush is drunk, perfect time to make a move and hope he forgets" It seems like I'm being dramatic (and sure, I am!) but it DOES have an effect on us subconsciously! I'm not trying to be a grandma and say "get that alcohol off the television, kids might see it!" No, no. I'm just saying the way it is shown in media is encouraging people to drink when they are depressed or vulnerable which is exactly when you SHOULDN'T drink. Another thing: In America, drinking culture tends to use "sexy" women to advertise but in Korea (yes, they still use "sexier women but...) advertisements also tend to use very young "innocent" idols. Take IU for example. She's know as the "little sister" of Kpop and yet one of her biggest endorsements is soju. Because its cute to get young innocent girls drunk. Am I the only one who has noticed this in Korean entertainment? I know its an issue in the US too, but considering how big the drinking culture in Korea is, I think its important to talk about!
LGBT Pride Playlist
In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains ‘cause I know I can win I know there’s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe I’m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it I’m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
Seriously NASA Has No Answer For The Anomalies On Mars
Other than the rhetoric and lies, it's indiscriminate covering up of what is effectively mankind's right, humanities undeniable rights to know if Aliens exist - through the discoveries of NASA which is a public funded agency. It doesn't matter if it's not what they want us to know about. what matters is that they be honest, present all their discoveries and not become some powerful groups personal "group of discovery" and only they get to know the truth and get to dip into any and all next discoverie. UFO Sightings Footage shows you the proof, shows you the discovered evidence that NASA, JPL and the ESA and all the other cohorts of collusion and lies try to shove under the carpet or drown it in literally millions and millions of image's. What you do with it, well that's up to you. Collected information is good, knowledge is amazing and sharing knowledge is even better. That's what we're taught early on. But NASA it seems (in case of the UFOs and anomalies) doesn't want to do that. Come to think of it, have NASA ever come forward with anything and I mean anything anomaly related? NO is the answer. That's just suspicious as we all know at least 2 maybe 3 strange things off the top of our heads which they can't explain. The short video in this post has had 45 million views and that's insane for what is effectively "something that doesn't exist" according to NASA anyways, lol. But, if you check out (just a few) of NASA's own images from their vast ocean of archived images and videos you'll see what all the fuss is about. That's why people go hunting for UFOs in NASA archives as there's millions to look through. Here's some Mars epic finds. https://www.ufosightingsfootage.uk/2019/05/nasa-has-no-answer-for-these-anomalies-on-mars.html?m=1 show
