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 )

I hope they abandon the whole ‘sexy concept’ thing.. They look cheap.


and I'm glad some koreans are calling out the racism in the other comments

"Whatever shade of skin one might have, they are all beautiful in their own ways." can i hug you?

makes me wonder how netizens feel about lee hyori...

That crossed my mind before, too.

I mean, I go out of my way to avoid reading comments like these, but I am kind of curious about what these idiots think of K-pop's resident sexy queen.

"I can see a lot of mental case/trolls among commenters. ke ke ke Sistar seems like nice girls. "

So yeah pretty much lol. Why is it such a big deal. The most superficial things are of importance in Korea, I just can't.

I think it's funny cuz hyorin & bora have always been more tan then the other two,I call them my fierce tan bitches. Hyorin & Bora don't have a problem with being tan so why should the netizens care,all the girls are pretty whether they're pale or tan doesn't really matter,so those netizens can gtfo with their stupid comments

i really don't understand koreans and their """"beauty""" standards. and i dont want to.
from what i hear all the time it's as if they're trying to mold everyone into a single type and
s m h.
the girls are so much prettier tanned imo.
gmh that some koreans know that.

im not gonna go on and say what i think of korean beauteh standards cuz gonna go on forever but, bref;

they got it wrong.

btw, i heard that Kai of Exo said that he was sexiest because of his darker skin?
props to you Teaser boy ((because yes. you sexy))

I don’t understand why some people say pale skin is prettier than dark skin. When there’s an international beauty pageant, ‘Miss Korea’ is the only pale girl who looks like just a bathtub.
i loled.

the tanned looks great and fits with the summer vibe. i thought it was weird that one of them looked really pale during the 20s awards performance thing.

So sorry that they can't control what their skin does. These people commenting badly are disgusting.
