I know that most of the things I write are about male groups, and so are most of these posts, but sometimes we’ve just got to give some room to some fabulous females who shine just as brightly as their male counterparts! And with that said, let’s move on to this week’s showdown!
Here are the rules:
1. Between two and four groups of the same sex are chosen. (Almost all posts will be three groups, and most will be with male groups)
2. Each member within each group is presented through three pictures and scored from one to ten, based on how attractive I find them.
3. Each group’s average score is calculated and the winning group is announced.
4. The three members with the highest scores from each group go head to head, and an individual winner is announced.
5. Plenty of polls are added in the end so can you show how much you agree or disagree with me.
A couple of these groups have had some line-up changes, but as always I’m only including the current members.
First Candidate: Gyuri
Gyuri is almost 26, and it shows. That’s not a bad thing in any way, it’s just that she looks like a mature woman. Many female kpop stars her age could still pass for under 20, and while they’re really pretty, it kind of freaks me out. There’s also something about Gyuri that I’ve always thought makes her not look Korean, though I’m not sure what that is. (For my Swedish peeps: there’s something about her face that reminds me of Sarah Dawn Finer)
Second Candidate: Seungyeon
Speaking of people who look younger than they are… Seungyeon is only two months younger than Gyuri, but if someone told me she was 20 I wouldn’t blink an eye. I think Seungyeon’s adorably pretty, and just overall really cute. She’s a little too cute for me personally, but I really like her nonetheless.
Final Candidate: Hara
Hara is a classic visual and kpop beauty, and she is an extremely pretty girl. I’ve always found her look to be a little strange though. She has giant eyes, thin lips, and she’s extremely thin. She’s very cute, and with a body like that there isn’t really anything that’s very womanly about her. And while she is still quite young, she looks more 14 than 23.
First Candidate: Sojin
Sojin is about to turn 28. Just let that sink in for a moment. That’s just insane. She is over 6 years older than the second oldest member, which I’d never guess. I don’t think she in anyway looks immature, but I do think she looks younger than her age.
Second Candidate: Yura
Yura’s just a little too beautiful. She’s one of those kpop girls that look so absolutely perfectly stunning that she almost looks a little boring. Absolutely gorgeous.
Third Candidate: Minah
Minah is just too damn adorable. It’s quite amazing how much she manages to sex it up on stage, when she really just looks like the cutest little bunny. Minah is very young, almost 21, but she looks even younger. If she was my age I’d still think she looked young, and I’m 17.
Final Candidate: Hyeri
Hyeri is quite young (she’s turning 20 this summer) and while she can be very cute, I’ve never thought of her as as adorable as Minah. Even though Minah is almost a year older, I do think that Hyeri looks more mature out of the two. She can be very cute and girly, as seen in the last picture, but with the short hair she has nowadays I think she looks quite edgy. She has a cool look, and I like it a lot.
Brown Eyed Girls
First Candidate: JeA
JeA will be turning 33 this september, and she does look a lot more mature and less “fresh-faced” than the younger girls of kpop. She does still have a good look, and while I’ve never myself felt much of an attraction towards her, I do hope that I look nearly as good as she does when I’m her age.
Second Candidate: Miryo
Miryo will just as JeA turn 33 later this year, and is just as she is, very obviously a woman. There’s nothing immature about any of the members in this group whatsoever. I think Miryo’s outrageously gorgeous, and these pictures do not do her justice.
Third Candidate: Narsha
While I don’t think that Narsha has the perfect look at all, I’ve always thought that she’s very sexy. She has a vibe that I really like. I also like her dark circles, or whatever you call them, I think they really work for her. It makes her eyes a little bottom-heavy in the wrong makeup though.
Final Candidate: Gain
While 26-going-on-27 is a fairly advanced age in kpop, in this group Gain’s the baby. I’ve never thought that she looks much younger than the other members, but I guess there doesn’t have to be a big difference between how you look when you’re 32 and how you look when you’re 26. She does look a little younger, but since Gain in no way has an immature look, it’s not that much of a difference. I think Gain’s hot, both in look and vibe.
Girl’s Day: 7.75
Brown Eyed Girls: 7.50
Meaning that Girl’s Day with their very impressive score takes the win! If we disregard JYJ’s score, which Jaejoong made so high, this is the highest score that any group’s gotten so far. It’s not surprising though, Girl’s Day are extremely gorgeous.
(Chosen over Hara because she’s higher on my bias list)
Representing Girl’s Day:
Representing Brown Eyed Girls:
(I’m sorry, I really can’t find pictures that I think truly do her justice)
And the winner is…
Miryo gets second place, and since her original score was lower than the others’ Seungyeon gets third place.
I had no real plan when I decided who was going up against who in these showdowns, but I really think Brown Eyed Girls kind of have to be judged on a different scale. I mean, they’re beautiful, but it’s very hard for someone who’s over thirty to compete with a 20-year-old.
If you disagree (or agree) here’s your chance to show it!
