Hiya family and friends! That is Megan Bowen AKA Chonunmigooksaram I’ve seen lately that I have been getting numerous a sure sort of remark and this remark entails folks saying stuff like oh my god she needs to be Korean so unhealthy Have a look at her attempting to be Korean sporting circle lenses and getting her boobs completed as a result of she’s attempting to be Korean and I do not know I really feel like folks considering that me attempting to be Korean is simply me sporting their make-up types and garments then I believe that is a bit superficial as a result of I personally I do really feel extra Korean today. But it surely has nothing to do with how I put on my hair and make-up and it has every little thing to do with the truth that I communicate fluent Korean, like I’ve made a really superior, life and established myself right here and intermingled effectively with the locals a lot to the purpose the place when Korean folks meet me, the very first thing that pops up out of their mouth is wow how are you going to communicate Korean so effectively and I believe that is superior you simply got here to Korea, by your self and also you made this life for your self that is superior as a result of not many foreigners try this most individuals who come to Korea do not really study the language to allow them to solely work together with Korean individuals who already communicate so that they’re probably not intergrated, intergrated into society I believe that.


I am doing a terrific job I’ve made a terrific life for myself right here, as an immigrant similar to folks come to America and make nice lives for themselves, as immigrants and there’s completely nothing mistaken with that ya haters remark from ‘Evenstar’ which says that is only one I have been getting like a ton, a ton of those because you guys know I obtained my boobies completed and I obtained like my eyebrows tattoed. I used to be like, what on the earth are folks speaking about and never simply that remark however I get plenty of feedback particularly from folks of color are being like oh, you do not even seem like African American no extra like what’s going on like this one from ‘Religion McDowell’ that claims oh have a look at her she’s sporting Korean make-up types she’s sporting Korean garments she needs to be Korean she’s attempting to (be) Korean she’s dropping her identification blah blah blah however I do not know to me, at any time when I hear these feedback the very first thing that pops out to me and screams out to me is that this in the event you’re African American, you are not allowed to put on your hair a sure means you are now allowed to put on sure makeups or sure garments as a result of they have been made for folks of different ethnicities or nationalities they not for you, you black, you’ll be able to’t put on that you understand? you are white I do not assume it’s best to put on that as a result of that was made for asian folks you understand what? you are asian, I believe that you simply should not put on western garments such as you’re racial identification has nothing to do with the way in which you select to put on your hair, or make-up, or garments as a result of what ought to.

I be sporting then, as an African American lady? your identification shouldn’t be summed up in the way you put on your hair, make-up or garments as a result of if that was the case, all people could be altering identities on a regular basis like each 10 years and in America, in our case, as an example you understand how we have now these a long time dances and stuff the place like each decade stuff adjustments we obtained my private favourites 80’s which was a terrific period 50’s I actually preferred the fashion of garments within the 50’s my least favorite must be the 90’s as a result of they’d these pencil skinny eyebrows and people eyebrows don’t look good on anybody I am sorry so vogue and elegance naturally adjustments folks additionally naturally change whether or not you progress to a different nation or not if I used to be simply residing at house in America my fashion could be altering anyone who is aware of me who actually is aware of me and they might’ve seen that about each two weeks once I lived in America, my coiffure modified drastically as a result of I really like experimenting with stuff so once I got here to Korea, there’s numerous new stuff that I did not have entry to earlier than like circle lenses as an example, I swear, I’ve most likely tried in my 5 years in Korea each single circle lense obtainable and I’ve settled upon two or three that I believe actually, actually match with me. I like them I am not sporting them as a result of oh I am attempting to be Korean so unhealthy as a result of being Korean does not imply sporting circle lenses or having straight throughout eyebrows which, my eyebrows are a bit bit robust in the meanwhile as a result of I simply obtained them touched up for the tattoo, cos you understand, I obtained my eyebrows tattoed you need to get a contact up a month later and then you definitely’re good for two years so while you first get it, its actually brilliant anyway, that was a tangent simply in case you have been questioning why they’re shiny as a result of they need to hold like ointment on it so what you are saying is, solely Korean folks can put on circle lenses and nobody else can as a result of they’re those that got here up with it no! Particularly not now on this globalized society you’ll be able to attempt something you need and it should not be restricted to you being in your nation. I am sorry you’ll be able to’t put on merchandise that have been made in a foreign country as a result of they are not for you, no! I have been in Korea for over 5 years in fact my hair and make-up goes to be influenced by Korean tradition not as a result of I am like oh let me slot in oh I wanna attempt look extra Korean let me put on contact lenses no! it is like hmm.

I’m wondering what I seem like with these pink lenses, I’m wondering what these blue lenses would seem like I attempt it, if I prefer it, I hold it, if I do not I take them out and throw them away and I do not perceive, I really feel like solely western girls who wanna put on like merchandise that have been made in Korea or one thing get this kinda speak when Korean folks transfer to America and purchase American merchandise and put on western sort of make-up and stuff and change into western mainly, nobody provides them crap for that they are dropping their identification as a result of they’ve change into American no! its simply because no matter purpose they determined they wished to reside in America, they do and so they’re influenced by us and our society and our tradition so they modify naturally its a pure course of man I simply broke my ring I used to be like so * transferring round an excessive amount of, have a look at that, presupposed to be linked anyway and just some different issues I kinda wished to handle that I’ve seen numerous stuff ‘sonrrrrrrruu xx’ she stated these Korean folks, they’re all so superficial ya racist however simply because any individual takes care of the way in which they give the impression of being does not imply they’re superficial one factor. I seen once I lived in America cos I’ve at all times been the sort to love costume up and stuff if I’ve ever dressed up on a regular basis in all places I went, any individual’s like oh why you so dressed up?

Its simply because for us, we’re extra I am selecting my phrases very fastidiously right here in comparison with folks from different international locations we are able to simply get off the bed and placed on some tshirts and a pair of flip flops and that is thought-about okay and that is okay however, when there are folks like me, who was by no means about that life you’ll by no means simply catch me rolling off the bed with some flip flops and a tshirt on for essentially the most half, as a result of that is simply not how I used to be that ain’t okay with me and its not as a result of I am superficial and oh I must look good its simply because I prefer to put effort into my look aswell I prefer to at all times handle myself, together with my psychological self my inside self, I am at all times rising and altering and being a greater individual as a result of it would not matter how lovely you’re in case you have an unpleasant persona no one’s gonna wanna be round you or in the event you’re imply or impolite or a b-i-t-c-h ain’t no one gonna be round you however the factor is these kinda feedback are superficial in themselves like for instance, ought to I, she’s gonna unsubcribe to me as a result of on this put up that is the put up once I had my. oh the boob put up so, you are basing your soul choice to uncomment or not primarily based on the truth that I obtained my boobs completed I do not know! To me that looks as if a really superficial purpose like am I nonetheless not the identical individual I’m? Making the identical lame jokes speaking with the identical southern accent that will get stronger once I’m round my relations however the final kinda remark. I simply kinda wished to handle this is an instance, its from ‘TheNessa284′ and I hate, HATE! when folks inform me I must go get some solar so simply because I am African American and that is the pure color that I used to be born with I’ve to exit and get a tan like, I do not know that is kinda like why? my pores and skin color at all times pops up as a difficulty in all places.

I do not do something to my pores and skin apart from: if I am going out to the seashore, or if I am gonna stroll round you understand, procuring outdoors through the summer season and it is blistering solar I am gonna put a sunscreen on that is it, I do not tan, not on goal however I do get tan in the summertime as a result of its a pure factor that occurs within the winter, I naturally get lighter. I do not perceive why folks do not perceive this and they’re at all times say have a look at her older posts she was darker however have a look at my older posts it is a put up from three years in the past and I actually, most likely look lighter than I do proper now and that is as a result of I moved to a brand new home with a giant window so the solar is consistently beaming down on me. So I look a bit extra orangey yellowyish right here than I did earlier than I do not know, I’ve at all times appeared like this there’s nothing I can do about it the one factor I’ve completed is placed on circle lenses and winged my eye out and put some a bit bit thicker not American formed eyebrows if that makes me seem like any individual of a unique race I do not know what to let you know as a result of that is all I’ve completed and I am not doing it as a result of I wanna look Korean I am doing it as a result of I prefer it, I believe it matches effectively with me possibly you disagree, that is okay Its my face, I select how I do my make-up.
