Please do not give me that TL:DR stuff. If you aren't going to take the time to read the discussion, then don't even bother to post. It takes time to explain things clearly and somtimes short post are enought to cover it all.
Info about thread and it's making (rules and what not): ADVISED THAT YOU READ IT
I will start first. Yes, BoA looks different and more mature but it's nothing we haven't seen before. Going through old photos and ads that I saw even before I was a fan, BoA has always had a more mature look than her actual age. So it's not a shocker that she would look a few years older than what she seems.This year, most visibly after her return to Japan around August is when her she rapidly became different. (In HV it was a subtle change, compared to this recent time frame)
The main points I seem to feel contribute to her change:
- I don't know if it's her diet or stress, but her face has become much more sharper, from the jawline to cheeks and chin.
- Noticeably, her skin color started to become much more pale ever since Hurricane Venus promotions, it's more neutral toned and has less warmth (white pale vs a nice tanned or glowing skin)
- The hair some what makes a significant change, but does not explain her overall appearance in comparison to during her days of Identity (she looked a little skinny then but she still had color and a much more fuller face)
- With lighter eyebrows, it takes away from emphasizing her eyes properly :/ i don't mind light, but the thicker eyebrows are much more complimentary and pretty.
-- She looks kind of . . . dare I say it, ill. She's still beautiful and gorgeous, but her complexion is not looking so healthy. I hope she's okay.
I might get daggers my way, but go forth and conversate fellow people --- i didn't plan to make this thread till tomorrow, but I pressed the enter button by accident *smacks head*
