TWICE's Jihyo shares how she was often mistaken as being mixed race

Jihyo
TWICE's Jihyo shared how people often mistook her as being mixed race.

On the November 12 airing of KBS2's 'Hello Counselor,' a woman who always gets mistaken for a guy shared her concerns. 

MC Lee Young Ja turned to Jihyo, and asked, "You have the perfect looks but I heard you also had concerns about your appearance?" Jihyo answered, "Because of my deep double eyelids, I was often mistaken as a foreigner or mixed race when I was young."

 

She explained, "There are many foreigners in Myeongdong. When I went there as a kid, there were people that talked to me in Chinese, Japanese, and English."

tbh, her beauty is underrated. Most idols looks the same to me, but she's kinda different. Her eyes also smile when she smiled.

Glad people are seeing Jihyo first as a power vocalist, then as a great dancer, and now a strong visual! She has it all.

She's got such pretty eyes. That's the first thing I liked about her. Then she got a bit slimmer, and that's what got everybody else looking. Then that tan...... Holy shit

well, Jeongyeon also thought that she was a foreigner (Indonesian to be exact) when she met Jihyo for the first time

well it's those big eyes and tan skin that's why they may have mistaken her for a foreigner. but this girl is a natural beauty and a great entertainer. yet people don't give her the attention she deserves.

There is something about her that makes her look mixed; I thought the same when she debuted. She's got a real exotic beauty about her.

hmm they must have thought she was also native american so that's what influenced her to dress as a native for Halloween it seems

Are we really talking about "RACE"?!?! There are no human "races", there are only ethnicities!!! Try to learn something before use fascist terms!

Jihyo is asian but this does not indicate a different race only a different ethinicity.

And yes... Jihyo is so much more voluptous and a little bit more tanned compared to the korean beauty standards and I think that this can create some mistake about her origin but not doubts about the fact she is from asian ethinicity.

And one more time: please, stop talking about RACES...

From an anthropological stand point there are 3 Races , and it’s determined by bone structure not facissm. The three are: Asian, African and European. The way you’re thinking about race vs ethnicity is off of the basis of race as a social construct. It’s true while there isn’t much merit behind the social construct it is real now. For example, class is also a social construct that we attribute many traits to. But it doesn’t mean class isn’t real. It’s real because we as a society made it real.
