    Shin Ji Hoon returns to figure skating

    Former ‘K-Pop Star 2‘ contestant Shin Ji Hoon recently returned to her roots as a figure skater.


    On the May 11th broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Human Documentary‘, Shin Ji Hoon gave viewers a glimpse of her journey as a figure skater, which requires waking up at 6AM every morning to go practice at the skating rink. Although she began skating during her 6th year of elementary school, which is later than most child skaters, she learned quickly. Within just two years, she was able to win an award at national and international competitions.

    Very cool. Pretty girl. So, is she also pursuing a singing career?

    Off topic: OK, I clicked on the icon below the main feature where t says "Yuna Kim gets double eyelids for a photoshoot." Is there a Korean cosmetologist on board who can enlighten me about this? Do some people genetically have monolids and others doublelids, which can then be altered by taping/gluing or by surgery? Is one look considered more in fashion than another?

    (Not a cosmetologist nor a plastic surgeon, but I've been hearing about this topic for many, many years now.)

    Yes, Asians genetically have either monolids ("no crease" above eyes) or double eyelids (skin crease above eyes). And yes, monolids can be altered by special eye-tape or by surgery, and even by wearing false/detachable eyelashes (the extra attachment kind of "lifts" the eyelid). I also would just like to point out that people with monolids actually do have eyelid creases, but they are directly above the eyelashes rather than on the top of the eye socket. Therefore, when the eyes are open, the crease kind of just goes "inside", so they're a lot harder to see. When the eyes are closed, there is a noticeable crease right above the lashes.

    As for the "in-fashion" question, some argue that some of those who want the surgery are influenced by western definitions of beauty while other others argue that this is not the case. (People with double-eyelids generally have slightly bigger eyes as well.) Some fans of monolidd-ed celebrities actually argue against them getting double-eyelid surgery--after said celebrity expresses a desire to undergo surgery or etc--because they feel that it takes away their personality and changes their image. An example would Ga-In from the girl group Brown-Eyed Girls.

    Edit: Removed pictures. They served no purpose.

    Don't call this an anti-thread. Anyone, regardless of their eyelids are very pretty. And the fact that you are suggesting that people who don't know that eyeslids can be genetically different and ask about it are in any way against Yuna really makes me angry.

    And yes, Yuna naturally has monolids and they are beautiful.

    And like I said, many things, including false eyelashes (NOT SURGERY) can create double-eyelids. I know this because there are many wonderful Youtube make-up gurus of Asian descent who use them and show what they do.

    Many celebrities, regardless of where they are from and their ethnicity, wear false eyelashes for appearances, films, and commercials to create a fuller effect bring drama to the eyes, an extra crease is just another effect of these extensions. (Again, NOT SURGERY.) -- Example: Beyonce.

    ------

    And kudos to Shin Ji Hoon for trying to chase both her dreams! She's a bit like Yuna, who can both sing and skate!

    And here she is (Novice) at the 2012 Asian Trophy.

    Among Asians, there are people who would get double eyelids when they have think makeup, If they have a outside shallow line over the eyes. ok?


    here is 2013 worlds Yuna. Oh! There's a double eyelids. Did she had monopolid makeup and competed?

    venlac, I'm not going to argue with you. I think you're misinterpreting my posts. I like Yuna. Have a good day.

    Kudos to her, too! Always glad and am appreciative to see a number of skaters trying a come back against the odds. Especially in the Olympic season. Nobody knows what's going to happen in the end, but their making such braviest decision has already won tons of my respect!

    YuNa is just gorgeous! I am very impressed by her beauty all these years and have always thought that she has perfect face/features for make-up. With magic of make-up and costume, she is simply 'kaleidoscope' in her beauty; can be innocent, or elegant, cool, sexy, fierce, even flamboyant, etc., anything as she wishes. YuNa should be also going for acting career when she retires from competitive skating, Seriously. Along with her current great role as UNICEF Goodwill Ambasaddor, she can be a bigger Hollywood star than Zhang Ziyi or Lucy Liu.

    I, as someone who has an asian-root myself, can assure you all, that there are many many beautiful people, both men and women, regardless monolids or doublelids. And if you allow me to explain a bit more, younger girls in my country, especially at some point in their late teens, may tend to consider doublelids 'more in fashion', try to put heavy makeups on eyelashes or eyeshadows, and some even try false eyelashes or eyetaping/gluing as Math says. Sugeries, however, are not so common as reported from time to time by int'l press/fashion magazines or as some of you may believe, I would say.

    To those who donot like a post or two that may sound 'anti thread-like' tone to you: Let's think this way: they are just jealous of YuNa. so much.

    I think anyone who's seen YuNa since she was a young girl and who is familiar with Asian eyes would agree that she doesn't really fit the bill of a typical "monolid", exactly. She has half a crease on her eyelids. I believe this is what venlac was referring to, so it's inaccurate to say she has either monolids or doublelids. She has something in between...rarer, but not unique to her. Depending on the makeup and/or shadowing or angles, they are more or less apparent.

    I have the proper monolids, so I know what monolids look like, thanks!
