Photos of Tanned K-pop Band Spark Controversy over Skin Colour



A K-pop idol band, Sistar recently came back from the Hawaiian Islands, where they were shooting their new music video. As it can be noticed from the above video, they seem to have spent a lot of time outside under the blazing sun, which gave all but one of them an ‘olive-coloured skin’ makeover. A netizen posted the teaser pictures titled, ‘Hyorin looks African, compared to White Dasom’, which sparked controversy over their skin colours.Read more...Collapse )

- Hey, 노란연필 (the 3rd comment)! What?! Dark skinned people look smelly? -_- You could get shot if you say such things abroad. You sounds like as crazy as some redneck racists saying Asians looks dirty.

and that's one of the nice comments

I don't see what the big deal is about.
They all look healthy with tans and Hyorin is prettier with a tan

Please please PLEASE let Starship ignore this idiocy. I don't want them taking unnecessary measures to "fix" anything about the girls -- seriously, nothing is wrong with them. Just these netizens.

I actually feel my brain dying reading most of those netizens' comments. I am disgusted and horrified that there are such close-minded people out there.

Let's not forget the whitening creams they so zealously endorse.
I had never even heard of a 'white party' till I got into kpop.

You guys get fucking furious when Asians are discriminated tsk tsk, yet you have no shame on disparaging other races? tsk tsk

you tell 'em gurl!!

"- Let me compare Sistar members with steak: Dasom (rare), Soyou (medium), Bora (well-done),"

That's fucken disrespectful and hurtful.

i'm pretty sure that was a joke... and it's not really racist. it's comparing how long a steak is cooked with how long each girl was cooked by the sun.
