Vietnamese girls beauty is very diverse!

  • So I was watching this doc on how SGO48 was formed, thanks nobody4444 for a recomm!


    And just thought I will share that Vietnamese girls which participated in auditions, wow they had really diverse beauty!


    those are girls who were - 120 contestants which made it to the next round


  • Maybe it's because i'm also a south east asian, i don't find it diverse.


    It is more diverse of you think in terms of Southeast vs East Asian looks.


    There are SGO members who would fit into the lineups of AKB or SNH and others who look more like the girls for BNK or JKT.

    Why do I watch survival shows? This!


  • Yumi is Japanese.

    The other members of SGO48 are all Vietnamese.

    There are SGO members who would fit into the lineups of AKB or SNH and others who look more like the girls for BNK or JKT.

    You can easily find a more diverse looking pool in China.

    And, the same can be said to BNK48.

  • Cute vietnamese girls but how old are they? :pepe-cross:


    Guys are interested in the age! lol


    Okay in 2019, the last time I saw an age related article, the average age of SGO was 18.5 years-old.


    Since 2nd generation recruiting is still going on now, SGO is still all 1st gen. In that case, the average of the group should be around 20.5 now. More or less as there had been graduations.

    Most girls in BNK or JKT could easily fit into AKB or SNH lineup tbh. They all follow the same East Asian (particularly leaning towards Japanese aesthetics) beauty standards of fair skin, big eyes, etc.

    In this regard, I'd say JKT & MNL seem more truly diverse, since they have the biggest mix of EA & SEA looks, whereas SGO & BNK tend to lean more East Asian.


  • Also on this poster of the people that participated at the audition of SGO48, there is Yui who is Chinese Vietnamese who was a member of the Vietnamese J-pop yume kawaii Idol girl band Niji Universe Inc. then got rejected at the audition of SGO48.


    Yui is now a member of the Vietnamese J-pop yami kawaii anti-idol style girl band UniDia Check also called Uniche.

  • nothing specific really


    just not diverse in any way from my perspective

    It is diverse in terms of asian standards. Racial diversity, body diversity, and age diversity aren't really going to be factored in a jpop inspired group centered around the school girl image. But at least we see some different facial types and skintone types! Something that isn't really a thing in east asian countries.

    thats true

    diversity in appearance is rarer in east asian countries esp in pop groups but what I meant was, from all those pictures at multiple glances, not one stood out to me so I dont think this is "diverse" beauty to me at least

    they're all pretty though so nothing against them

    if we're nitpicking, every single individual has something different but that's not something worth pointing out specifically is it

    No one stood out to you from the East Asian perspective, I guess. But diverse means there are definitions of beauty from other perspectives too.


    I actually think there are girls in the list who fit East Asian K/C/JPOP standards but those standards aren't the sole arbiters in deciding what is beautiful in Vietnam. So yes, I think the OP is accurate in saying there is diverse beauty in that group.

    Why do I watch survival shows? This!

  • Stop lying. Bnk48 does not have dark skin member while in the viet version we see some tan skin members.

    Namneung, Jib, Piam, Nine, Fifa, Mobile, Kheng, etc. are all as tanned as the tannest SGO members.

    They're not unpopular either, with Mobile & Namneung being the center of 2 of BNK48's most viewed MVs (Koisuru Fortune Cookie & Doddidong)

    If any of them were to debut in a K-Pop girl group, they'd definitely get one of those 'black pearl' titles like Yuri from SNSD (and they're all definitely at least a shade darker than her.)
