aespa Karina Proves Why She's a Former Ulzzang in Pre-Debut Photos
On November 21, a netizen on the online community forum Pann Nate created a post that compiled numerous photos of SM Entertainment's rookie girl group members, Karina and Winter, way before they made their debut as a member of aespa.
In the post, photos of Karina from when she was still in high school were shared. Impressing many for her stunning visuals!
In fact, Karina is actually a former ulzzang! In South Korea, "ulzzang" means "good looking" or "best face," and is a term that can be used for both male and female.
Ulzzangs are usually those who gain popularity online and are judged by netizens for their looks. That means ulzzangs are also chosen by netizens through contests.
With Karina's amazing visuals even before then, it's no wonder SM Entertainment decided to cast her as a trainee at the label!
