I have started a new segment on the blog with Hailey Baldwin, let's continue the series with another artist: Hwasa. She's the youngest member of the South Korean group MAMAMOO. This is actually the only kpop girl band I follow because they're very different from other groups. They don't follow the trends, they've been able to create their own genre of music and they're not afraid of talking about sensitive topics such as bullying. MAMAMOO is a very unique group and Hwasa is my favorite member for various reasons. She's an amazing singer, her voice is powerful. She's known for her charisma, strong vocal technique and stage presence. Plus, she's what we can call an unconventional beauty. She does not meet the Korean beauty standards because she's a woman with curves. She has hips and thighs which is not common in the Korean entertainment industry. She said in many interviews that she eats whatever she wants and does not feel like restraining herself.
I'm also a huge fan of Hwasa because she's a real fashionista. She's not afraid of experimenting different styles. South Korea is a modern and technologically advanced country however, it's still a conservative country. Just to give you an example, cleavage and revealing tops are considered not acceptable (to a lot of people) however, it's ok to wear really short shorts and very short skirts.
Hwasa is often critized for her fashion choices. As a woman and entertainer, she considers that she should be able to wear whatever she wants. She's naturally sexy and knows how to show off her curves. I like her mentality because she's not trying to offend anybody, she just doesn't care about what people think about her. And when she's not promoting, she actually has a very casual style. She wears a lot of oversized sweaters, hoodies and t-shirts with sweatpants.
Keep scrolling to see some of my favorite looks of the K-pop star below. I have also added music videos of her solo projects.
