V-Line vs. S-LinePosted: March 11, 2011
The trend is sadly sliding back to V-line. For idol girls, in order to catch the V-line pointy curveless-ness, they diet. And we all know they’re dieting, because they post it all over the Internet.
It seems the trend these days is to have that V point at that the chin, but how do you get a V-line? There’s (1) plastic surgery and (2) becoming super skinny so the bones in your face show better.
It started with 2NE1 Park Bom, who wished, “At the next music festival, I want to come out with slender legs and a V-line.” Park Bom‘s diet brought her to even give up corn, and go on a lettuce diet, basically a 100-day diet of not really eating. What?! Then the singer continued to update with selcas and various pictures convincing us of her diet success, which also landed her straight the hospital.
Most recently, with the dieting announcements by Min and Suzy of MissA, some fans are sad that the S-line Min had going for her could disappear.
Some girl groups are embracing their S-line, namely Secret, their mascot momjjang member Hyo-sung, who has a slim S-line going for her and rapper and naturally curvy Zinger, who also dieted but gained back some of the weight. Both, however have been criticized for their current weight. Hyo-sung weighs in at 51 kg, as revealed on a recent episode of variety program “100 Points Out of 100,” which is over the maximum female idol (crazy) standard of 45 kg. Even though netizens were surprised because “the weight doesn’t show,” some crazies still suggested that Hyo-sung go on a diet.
Not all the Secret members follow suit, as member Han Sun-hwa posted last month on her Cyworld mini-homepage, “Spring is coming. For spring, that I enjoy so much, in order to wear pretty clothes… sweet potato,” announcing her start on a Korean popular sweet potato diet, another diet aimed at eating less than nothing.
Even f(x)‘s Sulli said on the 6th broadcast of “Inkigayo” that she should start a diet before their comeback and asked Jo Kwon for advice.
Netizens are saying this is a pure choice between the S-line or the V-line for most idol stars, as the idols pictured at the top of this post are actively giving up their attractive S-line in hopes of becoming a new kind of attractive with the V-line. Frankly, the not-eating diets can’t be healthy, especially if the idol is currently promoting with various schedules and activities.
POPSEOULers, let us know your opinion. If you had to choose, S-line or V-line?
