논란되고 있는 CL 인터뷰내용 "아시아 여자들은..."
지금 웹상에서 논란되고 있는 씨엘 인터뷰입니다. 뭐 긴말은 하지 않겠음. 보시고 판단은 직접 내리시길 CL: 아시아 여자들은 평범(Basic)하고 싶어한다 "요새 어린애들은 뭔가 새로운걸 찾고 남들과 다르게 보이고 싶었다. 특히 여자애들이 그렇다. 그게 내가 바로 이 자리에 선 이유다. 아시아 소녀들에게 예시가 되고싶었기 때문이다. 많은 아시아 여자들은 평범해지고 싶어한다. 그게 안전하니까." "하지만 사실은 내 많은 팬들은 그런 여자애들이다. 걔네는 더욱 더 과감해지기를 원하는데 보고 배울 롤모델이나, '그렇게 해도(과감해져도) 괜찮아'라고 말해주는 사람이 없다. 앞으로도 그렇게 할 사람도 없고. 그래서 나는 스스로가 아시아를 위해 많은 것을 했고 또 소녀들을 많이 바꿔놨다고 느낀다" "폰케이스 하나를 사더라도 새로운걸 시도해보지 않나. 아시아의 소녀들은 매우 순종적이고 수줍고 소심하고 조용하다. 하지만 이제 그런게 바뀌고 있는 것 같다. 나는 그들이 더 강해졌으면 바라고 그들에게 '다름'도 괜찮다고 말해주고 싶다. 특별한 사람이 되는 것은 호화로운 일이고 아직 우리는 그런 기회를 가지지 못한거 같다" (원문) CL: "Asian girls love being basic" "I think a lot of the young kids right now are looking for something new,and they want to look different. Especially girls, and this is why I’m trying to come out here — to set an example of an Asian girl. A lot of Asian girls love being basic because it’s safe. But the thing is, a lot of my fans are those girls, and they want to be bolder, but there’s no one they could look up to and be like, It’s OK to be that way. There’s no one out here who will do that, and I feel like I have done enough for Asia and changed a lot of girls. Even if it’s a phone case, they try. Girls in Asia are very obedient, shy, timid, quiet, but I can tell that it’s changing, and I want them to be stronger and tell them that it’s OK to be different. Being special is a luxury, and I don’t think we have that. Yet.
성형 아닌 화장의 힘, CL 메이크업
장 카스텔바작이 강남에서 전시를 한단 이야길 듣고 기사를 찾아 보다가 발견한, 바로 이 사진. 그런데 제 눈에는 먹물이 묻은 카스텔바작의 손보다 CL의 메이크업이 맨 먼저 눈에 들어왔다는 거죠! 역시 전 어쩔 수 없는 코덕 모브(mauve)톤의 립 메이크업부터 광택이 느껴지는 피부 표현, 강하게 넣었지만 위치적절한 쉐딩 부드럽게 음영으로 풀어 낸 스모키 아이까지 거기에 귀신 같은 색조합, 플래티넘 블론드 색상의 헤어!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 심쿵.gif 이미 아시겠지만. 사실 CL의 메이크업은 흔한 한국식 화장보다 빡센 교포식 화장에 가까웠어요. 리퀴드 아이라이너와 마스카라를 정말 2달에 한 통씩 다 쓸 것 같은 메이크업이었지요 :> 눈물샘 근처를 얇고 선명하게 채워 앞트임 효과를 주고, 인조 속눈썹은 거의 무조건 풍성한 것으로, 단순히 캣츠아이라기엔 광활한 너비의 아이라인. CL도 무쌍커풀이기에 극적인 효과를 낼 수 있는 메이크업이라면, 이 방법이 잘 맞았겠지만. 하지만. 하지만. 어쩌다 이렇게 궁합이 안 맞는 경우에는 화장은 텁텁하고 눈은 부자연스럽고 빡세기만 빡세고. 분명히 화장하면 예뻐져야 맞는 건데 오히려..네... 긴말 않겠습니다... 하지만! 위의 사진들처럼 CL의 메이크업이 확! 달라졌습니다. 아는 분들은 다 아는, 메이크업 아티스트 포니(PONY)가 CL의 메이크업을 담당하기 시작하면서부터인데요. 여리여리한 맛, 일자 눈썹, 애교살 등을 강조하는 보통의 한국식 메이크업과 더불어 컨투어링, 스트로빙, 쉐이딩 등 빡세고 강한 테크닉을 사용하는 것이 포니의 매력! 한국식 메이크업과 서양식 메이크업을 잘 믹스하는 기술이 정말 정말 뛰어나요. CL의 메이크업에서도 이런 컨투어링을 강조한 모습을 많이 볼 수 있죠 XD 이 사진들도 색상 조합이 귀신이죠. 블러셔, 립, 눈, 눈썹, 피부표현까지 쉐도우부터 쉐이딩까지 아주 그냥 혼연일체여요. 다양한 색조를 사용하되 음영을 귀신같이 조절해서 인위적이지 않고 자연스럽게, 너무너무 예쁘죠. 무대에서 보면 이런 모습! 괜히 성형설 소문이 나온 게 아니라구요 +ㅁ+)/ 역시 금손 갓포니. 화장이 변장이 되는 순간을 공유합니다♪ FOLLOW는 여기에서 :) http://bit.ly/1MdccE5
[K-Pop] Idol và những bộ cánh khó hiểu “Cãi nhau với coordi sao?”
Idol luôn là những người không chỉ được biết đến với khả năng ca hát và trình diễn trên sân khấu, mà còn là một người sỡ hữu gout thời trang nổi bật dẫn đầu xu hướng. Tuy nhiên không phải lúc nào các idol cũng có thể xuất hiện trước mặt fan với những bộ cánh xinh đẹp hay cool ngầu. Đôi khi các idol xuất hiện với những bộ cánh khó hiểu khiến bất cứ người nhìn hoảng hốt. Những gout thời trang 'quá lố' hay những tham vọng cố gắng để trở nên thật nổi bật cũng dễ dàng khiến cho các idol trở thành khủng bố thời trang. Tuy nhiên cũng không ai có thể dám chắc rằng những gout thời trang khó hiểu này sẽ không trở thành xu hướng trong tương lai. 'Biết đâu bất ngờ'! Nhưng trước tiên chúng ta hãy cùng ngắm lại loạt ảnh khủng bố thời trang của các idol được tập trung dưới đây nhé! “SHINee luôn được biết đến là idol sở hữu gout thời trang sành điệu đặc biệt là Key nhưng có vẻ như lúc này điều đó hơi sai lệch” “Ai có thể đặc tên hay viết bình luận cho bộ đồ này nhỉ!” (Ga Hee) “Coordi có phải là anti của nhóm chăng? Câu hỏi này đã được các fan của B1A4 lặp đi lặp lại không biết bao nhiêu lần” “Nên trách chiếc quần quá ngắn hay đôi tất lưới quá dài đây?” (Hyorin) “Bội thực màu đỏ. Sẽ thật sự là một bộ cánh xinh đẹp nếu như không có sự xuất hiện của chiếc mũ vành khó hiểu” (Victoria) “Đang bơi trong chiếc quần sao?” (Goo Hara) “Không thể giải thích được bộ cánh này” (Sunye) “Vì sao chiếc áo khoác thật sự cần thiết” (Sandara Park) “Chỉ có mình tôi là sẽ đi chơi biển mùa hè hôm nay thôi nhé!” (Sunny) “Bộ cánh đã thực sự rất xinh đẹp nếu như không nhìn đến phía dưới. Chiếc áo quá đỗi nữ tính cùng đôi giầy chiến binh đã khiến cho set đồ bị mất điểm trầm trọng” (Jessica) <Hình ảnh = Dispatch DB>
Extraordinary You (Korean Drama Recommendation)

(I mean so far, there's only 4 episodes out so far...XD) Synopsis: What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously! Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing longgaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see. (Source: onehallyu, MDL) My Remarks: It's really good so far! If you liked the drama W you'd like this one most likely. They both have a similar concept. Except W had a serial killer in it...this one does not, or at least if it does it hasn't yet.
