South Korea has taken Asia, and the whole world, on a binge of pop culture. This pop culture consists of new trends in music and fashion, and it is called the Korean or Hallyu Wave.
One of the fashion trends even include men who wears outrageous attires, eyes with thick eyeliners, and of course wearing designed contact lenses. They are called pretty boys, Mi Nam in Korean. In fact, almost all of the pop cultural artists in South Koreans who follow this trend are the most sought after in the whole world.
Who cares! It worked! In all actuality, there was no surprise there. In order to be noticed by the world during a time they were being ignored South Koreans had to do something out of the ordinary.
What was the most obvious signification of success? The style is being copied not by just Asian countries but by most of the world. Japan does it, Taiwan does it, every guy in the world does it.
From rock to pop
Thick eyeliners and designed contact lenses were previously associated with punk rock bands like KISS. But the association of has now shifted to Korean men fashion, especially to Asian boy bands like Super Junior, TVXQ and NEWS. The perception for the two music styles shifted from sole appreciation of music to appreciation of both music style and fashion sense.
Girls adore it
Girls do not complain. In fact, a lot (and I mean A LOOOT) are infatuated with them. Similarly, girls will pay a fortune just to see them up-close. And in order for a guy to successfully achieve a pretty boy look (which has turned from being an insult into a compliment over the years), girls have to publicly gush over him.
Girls do not just go for the face and the style but also in the confidence they see. Arrogant or sweet, girls from all over the world are heard squealing at the sight of these pretty boys. They are seen as fashionable and this has been a proven asset in being a girl-magnet.
So for you guys out there who still think that it is weird, I beg to differ. With the huge fan base these designed lenses-wearing pretty boys have, girls will certainly adore you for looking like their favorite Asian pop star.
