Superstar K3’s Top 10, All Shiny & New
Kim Ye Rim looking finer? Choi Young Tae with a new hair color?
Before the top 10 finalists for Mnet’s Superstar K3 take on their first live competition, many eyewitness accounts of the contestants’ new and improved looks are sweeping the internet.
Superstar K3 is currently airing episodes from Super Week, the semi-finals through which the top 10 finalists are decided. Viewers are going wild over the competition between Shin Ji Soo and Two Months, and are debating whether Son Ye Rim will be moving on to the finals.
In reality, the top 10 members were already decided in early September, when Super Week ended. The finalists have been living in a training camp in Gyeonggi-do, beginning from the second week of September.
SNSD fans don’t call Taeyeon the ‘kkokkoma (kid) leader’ for nothing.
Known for her baby face and hearty laugh (search “Taeyeon laugh” on YouTube to see what we mean), a big, bad leader Taeyeon most certainly is not.
Although we don’t doubt that she takes her job very seriously, it’s difficult to take her too seriously when very un-girl group jokes about farts and poop send her off into fits of laughter.
The SNSD member proves she’s the queen of cute and that she knows her K-Pop—all in the adorable clip below.
Who exactly made it into the top 10 is still unknown, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating and spreading ‘spoiler’ eyewitness reports through various social media outlets. Some have tweeted that they’ve seen Two Month’s Kim Ye Rim looking prettier (thanks to a makeover?) and others have claimed that Choi Young Tae has changed his hair color. In both season one and two, the members go through basic vocal training and various missions at the training camp, but are also provided with hair designers and stylists to help them with their images.
Of course, it is difficult to determine whether these accounts are true are not, as the producers and staff are keeping the identities of the top 10 tightly under wraps. But one can say with near certainty that the finalists’ looks will have changed significantly, based on previous seasons.
An official of Superstar K3 stated, “For those members who need it, we help them with their makeovers by providing them with stylists. There are instances in which some contestants go on diets, but most of them naturally lose weight while singing and dancing for their missions.”
The top 10 members will finally be revealed on September 23 – tune in to see if your favorite contestant made it!
