'Original Visuals': How well does Red Velvet suit the Korean Beauty Standard?

AKP STAFF

Red Velvet - one of the most popular and beloved groups of the third generation. The girl group comes from SM Entertainment, a company known for having the best visuals. With that reputation, let us see how well Red Velvet suits the Korean beauty standard.

Please note that this is not a scientific measurement of beauty and that all of the Red Velvet members are beautiful in their own way! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is subjective. It is up to you who you consider pretty. With that, let us see how compatible the features of the Red Velvet members are with the Korean beauty standard.

According to a survey of plastic surgeons, the Korean beauty standard is said to contain:

  • Big eyes
  • Double eyelids
  • Thin, high nos bridge
  • Straight eyebrows
  • Small face
  • V-shaped jaw
  • Pale skin
  • Plump lips
  • Aegyo-sal (fat under the eye)
  • 165+cm in height

1. Irene

Irene is often praised as the epitome of the Korean beauty standard. Her face has all the features the Korean beauty standard looks for. The Red Velvet leader has big eyes with double eyelids and aegyo-sal, a thin and high nose bridge, a small face with a v-shaped jaw, pale skin, plump lips, and straight eyebrows.

Irene's only feature that does not align with the Korean beauty standard and that is her height. On her profile, it says she is 160cm (5'3"), but it is speculated that she is actually 158cm (5'2"), meaning she is on the shorter side.


2. Joy

Joy is praised as the "sexy dynamite" of Red Velvet, thanks to her stunning figure and sensuous aura. Joy's features align well with the Korean beauty standard. She has big eyes with double eyelids and aegyo-sal, a high nose bridge, a v-shaped jaw, pale skin, plump lips, and straight eyebrows. According to her profile, Joy is 168cm (5'6"), and she is on the taller side.

Joy's two features that do not necessarily align are her face shape and her nose. Compared to the other members, Joy's face is considered wide. She also has a bigger nose compared to the Korean beauty standard.


3. Wendy

Wendy's visuals are often overlooked, but she is one of the members whose features align with the Korean beauty standard the most. She is ethereal! Wendy has big eyes with double eyelids and aegyo-sal, a thin and high nose bridge, a v-shaped jaw, pale skin, plump lips, and straight eyebrows. 

However, Wendy's face is considered long compared to her other members. Wendy is said to be 160cm (5'3") on her official profile, and Wendy stands on the shorter side.

4. Yeri

Red Velvet's cutie maknae Yeri charms everyone with her cute and funny personality. In terms of the Korean beauty standard, Yeri has big eyes with double eyelids and aegyo-sal, a thin and high nose bridge, a small face with a v-shaped jaw, pale skin, plump lips, and straight eyebrows.

However, Yeri is considered a little short. On her profile, it is stated that she is 160cm (5'3"), but it is speculated that she is actually 158cm (5'2.2"). Additionally, Yeri's body shape is square type, which has put her under scrutiny in the past even though she is less than 50kg (110 lbs).


5. Seulgi

Seulgi is arguably one o the most popular Red Velvet members and is praised for her beauty and skills. Despite that, Seulgi's features do not align with the Korean beauty standard, but that is also her charm; her unique look! Seulgi has a thin and high nose bridge, a small face with a v-shaped jaw, pale skin, aegyo-sal, plump lips, and straight eyebrows.

Seulgi is the only member with monolids and small eyes, which has actually earned her fame. Her feline-like features only add to her charisma! Seulgi is also on the shorter side. Seulgi is 164cm (5'4.5") on her official profile, and she is around the average in height.

It seems silly to me to nitpick their visuals. Can we just say they're beautiful and be fine with it?
