My Opinion: The Allure of Cold, Fair Skin in Kpop

The allure of fair skin in Kpop is undeniable, with idols like Shu Hua and Dahyun setting beauty standards high. It’s fascinating how these idols maintain such flawless complexions despite their hectic schedules. Their fair skin not only enhances their stage presence but also adds to their unique charm, making them stand out in the competitive world of Kpop.

However, while celebrating fair skin, it’s important to recognize that beauty comes in all shades. Diversity in skin tones should be embraced, allowing idols of all backgrounds to shine. The focus should be on individual talent and charisma, rather than just skin color.

Fair-skinned idols will continue to mesmerize fans, but let’s also celebrate the diversity and inclusivity that make Kpop a global phenomenon.
