I absolutely love this picture, click on it for high-resolution, GD looks so cuuuuute!
Since one of my most popular posts made is the one I wrote in June called “Never understood the thing about ulzzang boys?” I thought I’d tell you about the TV-show I’ve started to watch called “Ulzzang Shidae”.
To start with you should understand the show so a few words are neccessary to understand:
Ulzzang = 얼짱 = Best Face (it basically means that you are “good looking”, pretty)
Shidae = 시대 = Generation (same as for So Nyuh Shi Dae which is Girls Generation’s name in korean, shi dae just simply means “generation”)
얼짱 시대 = Ulzzang Shi Dae = Ulzzang Generation
The reality TV-show “Ulzzang Generation” revolves around 6 girls and 4 boys, all famous over the internet, popularity they’ve gained through their personal websites where they post “best face” pictures of themselves.
The main purpose of the show, I think, is to show that the people behind the super-cute pictures really don’t look like that in real life without the quality of photo-editing and circle lenses. Some of them have even had celebrities contacting them wanting to meet them because of these pictures they’ve got on their websites.
I really strongly dislike the host of the TV-show because he really puts the young boys and girls (the youngest of them being 18 years old) in a really bad light, and even sometimes is too up front about what he thinks about their appearances. I know this is a korean thing to be open about, but he doesn’t do it nicely, as most other koreans do…
The thing that caught me about the TV-show is the characters, some of the ulzzangs are really charming and cute, and they are really open about plastic surgery and their heights and what they themselves consider as negative aspects of their appearances. Also it’s very interesting, I think, to see how young koreans within this “profession” interact with each other, and hear their stories.
If you’re interested in watching the show, here’s the link to the first part of the first episode with english subtitles:
Tonight I dreamt of GD. Such a weird dream too. I was running around because I was attending BIG BANG’s concert (somewhere, idk, I think at the time I thought it was in London) and it turned out the venue where the concert was was just a small club, which I’d never expected, which made me stress around the place even more. I know I went out to a hallway before the concert begun and I hung off my bathrobe among with other stuff (bathrobe… that’s really strange right? I mean, I barely ever wear it and only after showering so why bring it to a concert, I really don’t understand my dream self at times).
Anyhow, I went inside the small club and noticed a crowd had gathered in front of the stage, but I was set on being in the middle at the front so I ran forwards, noticing a bouncer seeing me running and just before he tried to stop me I slowed down and walked past him showing off a cute smile, so he let me pass eventhough he’d let through too many between the fence closest to the stage that he was guarding. Somehow I was aware of this. And also aware that I’d dressed up all dolly-pretty korean style like (ulzzang style, wearing circle lenses, soft locks in my hair and false lashes, kinda like I was dressed yesterday, just not as a creepy doll, instead my own style of the look), so I could get my way past anyone…
I half-run to the middle of the stage and notice a small gap between some people where I manage to squeeze in. Just then the concert starts and I’m just deliriously happy to see Big Bang performing and GD again, and so happy to see him for the first time with really nice hair (remember I’ve only seen BIG BANG in the past at the Seoul Alive-concerts in march, where he had that awful extention going on so this is actually something I’m happy about and looking forward to). Suddenly G-dragon jumps off the stage into a gap in the crowd just behind me and continues singing and dancing on the ground just looking at me. I get stunned, but realize quickly I can’t lose his attention so I take his hand carefully and start “half-sexy” dancing with him.. And he plays along, quite surprised that I’m actually dancing with/for him, but seeming to enjoy it. Then the song kinda slows down and he’s not singing, but still holding my hand, so I lean in and kiss him. He looks surprised.
Then I wake up.
I never really properly got around to liking T-ara’s song “Sexy Love”. However, I do like the dance, and this performance is really cool. It looks like it’s filmed in some bizarre “Alice In Wonderland”-esque park. Also I like the pink dresses that the girls are wearing. Check out the performance below!
