I like to visit kpop forums to find out pictures and news on the latest korean happenings. There’s a new YG group coming out called “Big Bang” and a female duo from SM called “2nb.”
On the picture forum, there is a thread called “Post Your Lovely Pictures.” It’s filled with blurry webcam/cell phone pictures, with people posing in odd angles. Have you ever seen asian webcam photos with the words haduri in the corner? It’s actually a korean kind of image hosting deal where a lot of koreans/asians host their photos for their “Cyworld” pages (a Korean myspace). So a lot of these asians take glamor shots with slick clothes/hats/lighting/blurry/animated/posed pictures. Mostly they are just posers.
Those whose pictures are well known (through posting or contests) are called uhlzzang or uhljjang. Uhljjang is an abbreviation of “uhl-gul-jjang”. It’s slang for “best face” or “the prettiest face”. Here are examples of uhlzzang:
Uhh. Kind of creepy…
Anyhow, so back to “Post Your Lovely Pictures.” Here are a few funnt ones, the faces behind the forum IDs and avatars. Haha, if you read this and these pictures are of you, don’t kill me. You put your pic online for the world to see, right? You’re crazy.
O_O AAaHHHgG! Wholly mackerel!!!!!, I want to see you breakdance BBoy916. Actual quote of BBoy916: “It’s All good wit mah new jordans!”
Nice fro, nice phone, nice bathroom. He actually looks kind of funny in a cool kind of way.
This next guy’s handle is Aznwu. Sounds cool right? I like how his banner is written with a street grafitti font and there’s a picture of a breakdancer.
