Too much talk about girl groups these days. I’ll deal with them once I sort out who’s who. But as always, here in floatingstars, let’s go on a deviant route, shall we? Part 2 of my Fashion Confessions Black and White Special is a compilation of hot male Korean popstars/artists who were seen wearing eyeliner—or in a more popular term—the MANLINER. And in my fangirl vocabulary, that means SMOKIN’.
KOREA’S SUNBAE: KIM HYUN JOONG
Sweet prince charming on a white horse turns into the prince of darkness.
From actor to rockstar to popstar?
Damn where is this guy? Does anyone else miss ogling him on TV? I remember first seeing him in My Girl and I was like, “Wow, he looks like he got straight out of a pretty boy band factory!”
THE ONE WHO STARTED IT ALL: G-DRAGON OF BIG BANG
(Well, at least that’s what it seemed. )
Dammit, T.O.P. smudged my makeup!
Big Bang in their “Haru Haru” days turned from hip hop boys in da hood to punks fake fist fighting in an empty alley. But who cares, the boys looked good—who knew they’d be able to pull off that look? In their previous mvs they were sporting baggy pants and sweats but they stepped it up a notch by going all rugged and emo. Ah, the wonders of manliner. Changes everything.
Good ol’ fashion disaster G-Dragon. It’s good that he’s brave in style and experimental, but most of the time his experiments are waiting to implode.
RESIDENT BIG BANG HOTTIE—T.O.P.
The trademark T.O.P. GLARE that pierces your soul.
He’s just fly like that.
Mr. Cool cat’s effortless bug-off-or-imma-kill-you look and overflowing charisma can beat anyone even by just lying on a sofa.
KOREA’S NATIONAL OBSESSION: LEE MIN HO
Min Ho gives manliner tip 101: Do it yourself, dude!
Work it, girl! I’m looking at YOU, Min Ho!
Min Ho: Bitch stole my limelight!
IT’S RAINING. AND IT’S HOT.
Nobody does the hot and sweaty look better… I mean manliner. *stutter stutter* Doesn’t this make you remember the Xtina Aguilera Dirrrrrty days? *Wanna get rowdy! Wanna get dirrrrty!*
The following pics are COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT to the topic but can’t help it. I hate his Rainism song but this has got to be THE best Rainsim perf evarrr. It was at an awards show and it was amusing to see top female celebs try to hold in their inner fangirl selves and pretend to be all poised while deep inside we all know they’re all drooling.
What a pimp.
SUPER JUNIOR MEMBERS: YESUNG, LEETEUK, SUNGMIN
… and the best manliner goes to… SI WON!
Love the hair, love the fake tats.
Like I always say, TOO MUCH BOOTY IN THE PANTS NEED SOME SPANKIN’! (Okay cheesy I know! Sorry Sorry!)
Because Si Won has been a bad, bad boy!
HOTTEST TIME OF THE DAY: 2PM
In their recent Vogue photoshoot, 2pm went all dark and gothic—and with a lot of flesh involved. Who knew maknae Chansung was hiding all THAT underneath? Junsu’s edgy hairstyle is HOT!
Jaebum is TOO damn hot to handle.
Taekyeon wears the manliner among 2pm the best imho.
POLL BATTLE RATTLE TIME!
(1) Manliner: HOT OR NOT?
(2) Which among the artists above do you think wore the manliner the best?
My Choice? It’s got to be T.O.P.’s GLARE.
