Why don't Kpop stars look as good near western celebrities?

    Of course, that's just my opinion, you might think otherwise.

    But when I looked at photos, for example, of Sehun with Emma Stone and Lea Seydoux, or G Dragon with Pharell they both kinda looked pale in comparison

    And even as a guy who looks at girls, in this TiffanyxHiddlestone and TiffanyxPitt pictures my attention is stolen away from Tiffany.

    Do you also feel the same way? Why do you think it is?

    No I personally don't agree,I think they look really good! I guess it is just personal preference. I mean GD looks like a highlighter so it is hard not to look at him in all his glory lol. I think because Kpop idols are quite small they don't stand out as much.

    Kpop idols have to look and maintain a certain image, whereas western celebrities make their own image which is probably why they may shine more for you. As you can feel their character and charisma but that’s not as clear with idols

    IMO because I've been really used to looking at Korean skin from where I live, I'd say it's the skin regulating body temperature.

    When bodies get cold, signals are sent to the cold skin to heat up, right? Especially makes sense as in this picture, they're outside Gyungbokgung Palace in the cold weather, and Brad's wearing something that is supposed to cover up more skin from the cold.

    Agree with Emma Stone and disagree with GD
    I just think it depends, asian and western celebrities aren't really different to me tbh ( physically, like asian celebrities don't look better than western celebrities imo )

    I don't think korean makeup really suits anyone really, it's a little bit too flat and they often basically whitewash themselves.
    So yes, they do look washed out compared to others.
    Perhaps that's just my preference, I think colour in the fact makes you look healthier

    Yup, there are separate pics as well and when I saw Jisoo, I thought she looks good. But then I saw this photo :confused:

    Just because Selena is tan and Jisoo and Rose look paler, doesnt mean they dont look next to each other lol

    It is not about tan at all, their faces seem literally giant.

    Maybe cause I live in california where girls with over made up faces are common but I agree but dont think its a good thing. Emma is wearing a shit ton of makeup evem compared to lea. Selena is bronzed af and heavy contour is still a thing in the west. I think Rose is the most beautiful in that one pic with selena and she drew my attention the most.

    You cannot compare western artist with Asian artist each are different on their own. It does not matter what colour they are, that is stupid to look at them that way. Korean like to look pale as ghost thinking this is beautiful, western artist just love who they are, they create what look they want to project to the world. Each countries have their different styles and approach to their stardom..you cannot compare. I admire both.

    On Pharrell's best day he cannot hold a candle to GD- it's like comparing these two cars to one another- [​IMG]

    Because makeup.
    Also Sehun had a terrible hairstyle in that picture. Otherwise, I would def notice him more.
    Especially because I don't think Emma stands out that much in that picture either.
