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.
