Jiyoung can still go to cute style if she wanted to. It's just a concept for the special stage and she looks stunning there! So beautiful! Even if it's cute or mature beauty concept, she's still beautiful in any look!

to me, jing changed a lot since they debuted in japan. probably the image designed by her stylist triggered the ultimate switch from the innocent look. jing is the youth representation & pretty by nature, so it's rather challenging to hide her beautifulness till now. i'm sure the rest (gyulhamcolehara) aren't surprised by her changes.

I would say all the Kara girls have gone through a drastic change. As for Jing her image suddenly switch to mature when she debuted in Lupin. I was astonished by the change of Jing when Lupin first came out. Kara began moving away from the cute image during the revolution days. It is like moving from children to late teenage hood when Kara move from pretty girl to the revolution image. Now is teenage hood to womanhood. All of them have grown to be beautiful woman but by their core their also still cute children that know how to have fun. I prefer that part to remain unchanged.

The netizen there is right. Beauty like a storm. But I think river beauty is a better word as the meaning of "Kang" in Korean is river. So there it is river beauty. :tongue:

Thanks for translating.

I agree that after going to Japan Jiyoung seems to have mature a lot and her style is not as childish as it used to be.

She is starting to become more beautiful~~

She reminds me WG Lim in this photo because of her bangs.

But, she's much prettier than Lim.

She's growing up beautifully.

i think this has a lot to do with how kara has changed their concept from cute to mature too. still, it's suited jiyoung's growth perfectly. she can still pull of the cute image if she wanted too, but i definitely like this image of her more now =]

"Other netizens have described this as an "idol getting rid of her old image." "

= /

i've noticed her mature beauty back when lupin was released, but to say that she is getting rid of her old image makes me kinda sad. i like her cute side, and she definitely has a strong sexy side too. i wanna see all the sides of jiyoung = ]

idk, maybe it's just the phrasing of that sentence that i didn't like >_>

Ahh yes yes this is something that we're all noticing nowadays.

Baby Jing well.. she really isn't a baby anymore. She's matured and is becoming prettier and more beautiful.

I feel so happy to see her growing up so well like this. I'm sure her father and her family is happy to see this too lol.

Thanks for sharing!
