Shocking Transformations from Jo Kwon, Sandara Park and Jang Wooyoung
Singers returning to the scene have been coming back with badder and more shocking transformations.
This is because in an age where it’s rare for singers to take breaks between singles, they need strong colors to help themselves stand out in the overwhelming flood of albums and songs.
2AM’s Jo Kwon, 2NE1’s Sandara Park and 2PM’s Jang Wooyoung are some examples of singers who have undertaken big transformations for their upcoming comebacks and solo debuts.
Jo Kwon probably went through the most shocking transformation of them all. He waited eight years in training to debut as 2AM in 2008, and another four years to debut with his first solo album as a solo singer this year - so there′s no wonder that he′s going all out this time.
Jo Kwon revealed through the cover of his first album I’m Da One that he had dyed his hair a shocking turquoise-blond.
He emphasized his bright image from his entertaining feats on TV and variety, and then released another set of photos that contrasted with the bright blond look as ‘dark Jo Kwon’, helping him show off two images in one album.
With these photos, teasers and songs, Jo Kwon heightened anticipation for his upcoming performance on the June 29 broadcast of KBS2’s Music Bank.
He said he plans to perform in 20cm killer heels for the single Animal, to be performed with his promotional single I’m Da One, so fans can definitely look forward to seeing some more shocking Jo Kwon.
2NE1’s Sandara Park, who will be making a comeback with her group on July 5, also had eyes popping out with her new look. The cute and bright Sandara Park had cut her hair into feminine, long waves on one side, and short, shaved hair on the other.
She had always been the more experimental one with her hair, with her palm-tree look and lion look being some of her more famous hairdos, but the shaved hair is a fairly shocking look for a girl group member to take on.
2PM’s Jang Wooyoung, who will also be launching his solo ventures, drew eyes with his new blond look.
On June 27, Jang Wooyoung showed off his blond, nearly white hair that contrasted with his black clothes and background. The sensual music, white hair and bold expression all showed that he was determined to leave a mark on the scene.
A rep from Jang Wooyoung’s agency JYP Entertainment told enews, “Jang Wooyoung will be the first 2PM member to launch his solo activities. Please look forward to seeing a different Jang Wooyoung from who he is in 2PM.”
Other than these examples, the hot summer is especially expected to bring on more shocking comebacks and looks among singers lined up for the season.
