Netizens ridicule media for reporting on Hyoyeon’s lipstick smear

Following Girls’ Generation’s Phantasia Concert in Japan, the members returned to Korea in time for Christmas.

With the return of such a power girl group known for their impressive fashion and visuals, it is no surprise that cameras were flashing upon their arrival. However, netizens were not impressed with media coverage of member Hyoyeon’s landing as reports focused on her lipstick smear.

Commenters reacted in a timely manner, refuting that the focus should not have been on her lipstick and it was a poor attempt to create a catastrophe out of a small detail. Many more netizens responded that Hyoyeon was especially cute and cheerful per usual, with her Christmas tree headband adding a festive touch to her look.
