Hallyu Beauty Wave

Beauty is subjective. This simply means beauty is seen and interpreted differently by different people.

There are different beauty standards in every country, and even in those countries, the different cultures have their own diverse beauty standards. For instance, the Korean beauty standard for women is to be petite, thin, 90-degree shoulders, double eyelids, and many more. For the men, it’s to be masculine but with a cute face, tall, broad shoulders, double eyelids, and others. Obviously, not everyone fits into these and they are still beautiful. We see Korean idols breaking these stereotypes and still having the support of their fans because they are beautiful in their own ways. Min Yoongi from BTS is not as tall as the Korean beauty standard demands, Park Jimin from BTS has a lot of feminine features also, but we can all agree that these men have set standards of their own because beauty is subjective.

Western beauty standards are more popularly known as having a full chest, plump lips, petite, and other women. Women in these categories would be Zendaya, Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Gigi Hadid, and many more. The men would be masculine, tall, with sharp jaws, and others. We can see these features in men like Johnny Depp, Hozier, Timothée Chalamet, Chris Hemsworth, and other men alike.

The world has a lot of beauty standards and no single person can meet each and every one of them. So always remember to be yourself because there is no one as beautiful as you.
