A recent online community forum post garnered a lot of attention, where several edited photos of aespa's Karina with a short cut hairstyle were shown. The forum user wrote, "I just wanted to see her in a short cut, so I tried editing her photo, but she turned out to be so pretty...Her 'cold beauty' facial feature is so unreal, so she seems like she will look really good in a non-permed short cut hairstyle. I wish she would cut her hair in the next comeback TT. "
In response to the edits of Karina's photos, some of the netizens' comments included:
"I kind of wish Karina would maintain her long hair for a little longer... when she flings her hair back, it makes me want to scream."
"You should only see her in short hair through edited photos...If she actually cuts her hair short, it'll only be fresh and pretty in the beginning, and you'll get tired of it soon."
"I want to see her in short hair. She would look so pretty."
"I feel like if she cuts her hair short, she would look similar to Winter."
"She has that face, so obviously she would look super pretty in short hair."
"Her face is small and her proportions are really good, so wouldn't a pretty girl like her match any hair?"
"Whatever she does she'll look pretty, but I do prefer longer hair."
"Wow. Her face is so small."
"If she gets short hair, she'll look so pretty."
"Her facial features are legendary, so whatever style she does, it'll look good on her."
"She would look pretty in whatever hairstyle she does, but I feel like longer hair gives her more presence on stage."
