Netizens are marveling at Hyein's 'time-traveling' talent.
On an online forum, netizens discussed the NewJeans member's recent V-log that transported fans back to the Y2K era. Netizens couldn't help but notice that Hyein effortlessly channels the look and feel of the early 2000s.
They playfully speculated that this V-log "couldn't possibly belong to the year 2023," as it featured Hyein and her grandmother's home, exuding an unmistakable atmosphere reminiscent of early 2000s Korea.
One detail that caught the netizens' eyes was Hyein's actual eyeglasses, worn out of necessity for her vision. Some pointed out that with a dip in video quality, the entire footage could easily pass for a nostalgic throwback.
The original poster wrote: "It's almost like stumbling upon a self-cam video of an actress straight out of 2002."
Reactions poured in:
"Our baby god, she's the human Y2K..."
"She really has that eerie Y2K feel...so strange"
"Change the ratio to a square and turn the quality into a 480p and you have an actual 2yk video"
"We need a Haduri font somewhere lol"
"She looks like a rookie actress from the early 2000s..."
Inspired by a comment about Haduri, a late 90s Korean photo and video program for taking selfies, one netizen whipped up a fake Haduri photo using Hyein's footage. Others joined in, crafting edits that transformed her footage into what could easily pass as a real self-cam video from a retro Korean variety program.
"Lol......oh my god"
"She really fits the part haha"
"Someone needs to cut the ratio lol"
"Now all she needs is to speak in a Seoul dialect haha"
"She is sooooooooo hip"
"I am jealous of the way she looks so good with eyeglasses without rims"
