Girls Generation: Hello Photoshop!Posted: March 22, 2011
The girls of Girls Generation (SNSD) popped up recently in a Japanese magazine, but fans are upset over the over-use of photoshop.
In the group shots, the fans complained that their idols were made to look too much like each other, also naming Seohyun, Sooyoung, Taeyeon, and Jessica not looking much like themselves at all. The fans were especially upset that something seemed off between the proportion between the length of the upper body and the length of the legs (which may just be a complaint against a lack of photoshop).
When it got to the individual photos, fans were saying all the members look a little strange, but especially Tiffany and Jessica‘s body shape seems a little off. Jessica has a bit of a floating head with a squarish body and a skinny forearm (compared to the bicep part). Tiffany also has the same square waist with shrunken legs. Fans also thought Sunny‘s face was shaved off a little too much.
Some netizens answered, “It’s excessive makeup… and plastic surgery,” and “Rather than the photoshop, those noses are over-done.”
Others defended the accusation, “It does seem a bit strange,” and “Not only is the photoshop bad, the style is horrible.”
All in all, it’s hard to claim over-photoshopping without the originals, but this magazine sure did give us a version of Girls Generation that we’re not used to seeing.
Do you think the photoshop editor went a little overboard, or are the fans doing a little overreacting?
