5 Times K-Pop Idols Were Unfairly Photoshopped For Korean Beauty Standards
Here are 5 times the intense editing was just too obvious.
1. Chuu (LOONA)
Fans were upset when an obviously edited picture of Chuu was released. Looking at the bubbles behind her back, the odd stretched shape shows they’ve been edited to make her waist smaller.
On the right, fans corrected the photo to return her waist to its original size.
2. Kim Wooseok
In a previous photoshoot for X1, Wooseok’s leg was edited to be slimmer.
The change can be seen when looking at the curvature of his thigh in the original photo. Many fans preferred the unedited version since it looks more realistic and human.
3. Jisoo (BLACKPINK)
Jisoo looks beautiful on the cover of Marie Claire. However, upon closer look, fans noticed something was wrong.
In the unedited videos, Jisoo’s neck is much thicker than on the cover. Many comments agreed she looks better as her natural self!
4. Ningning (aespa)
A fan of Ningning was once accused of editing her body to be thinner and fit the Korean standard of beauty better.
However, many people prefer Ningning’s curvier and healthier body that is more realistic.
A fansite for WOODZ, during his time in X1 as Cho Seungyoun, was accused of heavily photoshopping his pictures.
From the preview to the HD version, fans noticed a huge change. They changed much of his face, increasing the size of his eyes and even adding makeup onto him.
