One thing that was very odd in Korea, was how men are portrayed by the media. I didn’t think of snapping photos until our last day, then the rain put a damper in my plans, but I was able to catch two pictures of ads you see all over the place.
Yes, both of those are pictures of men. I should have snapped the one where the guy had foundation on his fingers (he was selling male makeup). And in case you were wondering, yes, this is targeted to, and meant to be, straight men.
Am I the only one who sees something a tad odd with these ads? (And seriously, not one buff macho-looking men to be seen in any of the billboards/posters/ads.)
Edited to add: I should note, that Korean men had the Justin Bieber cut WAY before he ever shown up. Maybe that’s where his stylists got the idea from?
