South Korean President Moon Jae-in has wrapped up his four-day visit to the United States, also his first trip abroad since taking office. From North Korean tensions to trade, many important things were on the table. But one unexpected issue garnered a lot of attention.


The topic of "First Lady Kim Jung-sook makeup" quickly took the Korean online community by storm, after one woman living in the United States shared a story on the blog site, "MissyUSA."


"The mother of my child's friend is a makeup artist," the woman wrote. "And I learned that she will be doing First Lady Kim Jung-sook's makeup for three days."


According to this makeup artist, the woman wrote, the first lady had been doing her own makeup and hair all along, including the look she donned when she took off from the airport in South Korea.




To the visibly nervous makeup artist, the first lady also calmed her down, saying that she liked the look and complimenting her endlessly.


The first lady allegedly also explained to the makeup artist that she had received a love call from a wedding shop, but she declined, saying it was too costly. The first lady had also initially insisted that she'd do her makeup and hair herself, but her aides had advised her against it, the woman wrote.


Netizens responded positively, with comments like, "her heart is elegant," and "she is the face of the nation, so she can spend some of the tax money on makeup."


The first lady has been nicknamed "Happy Mrs. Jung-sook" because of her bright and approachable personality. Seems the name couldn't be more fitting!

lmao my mom visits missyusa all the time it's like the hotspot for korean moms living in the united states... also this is a big deal bc 1. she's a first lady and 2. the previous president was famously known for caring more about her appearance than her people.

She's so bright and happy all the time. She gives that motherly feeling that Korea really needs right now.

I don't want to brag about myself, but as president of Korea, I was way prettier than kim jung sook.

So the upshot is that this woman had her makeup professionally done for 3 days... to meet TRUMP of all people.  and Koreans are supposed to be honored that she let them spend their tax money on that crap?  lol these Communists

(Joking) TRUMP had the FLEAS removed from his toupee ; so this is actually RECIPROCITY on her part ... Actually, if you read the article ; the general 'gist' of it ; is that KIM JUNG SOOK is FRUGLE in nature. Which, after the 'CORRUPT PIGS AT THE TROUGH' with CHOI SOON SIL ; *sounding* FRUGLE seems a *good strategy* to me. (Joking more) TRUMP could GIFT them with a DOG named 'CHECKERS' ; and 'CLOTH COAT.' (NIXON) ...

she had her make up done because she represented her nation in a visit to another country, it does not matter if she is meeting Trump or Clinton or whoever, the TITLE of the person she is meeting is the President of the USA, whether he is trump or tramp, he is someone whom the people of the USA voted for. So should the Koreans be happy if their First Lady went to on her first official state visit looking with she didnt do a good make up?

@Winston <-- I *agree* COMPLETELY with what you said it. Usually, those involved (Hair Stylist ; Cosmetics ; etc) get ADDED BUSINESS from doing the work. So, whatever that they get PAID (say $100 USD for the Hair Styling) is almost more of a like "TIP" for them. They would do it FOR FREE (no payment). But, the 'FIRST LADY' of S.KOREA does NOT want to appear 'EXPLOITATIVE' somehow. So, they PAY them a *generous* payment to 'max out' their appearance. NOTHING wrong with this ; in my view. And, the 'corruption' of an 'over priced' haircut ; is the LEAST of anyone's worries with regard to say TRUMP (and his toupee / hairpiece). More important, would be to worry about the *next* CHOI SOON SIL (my view).
