how to be an Ulzzang

The Ulzzang culture started with boys and girls taking selcas (self-captured) or what is more popularly known today as ‘selfies’. It is thru these selfies which they pose on the internet where they are recognized as having the ‘best faces’ or the ‘perfect look’. Eventually, they gain popularity and fandom among the netizens.

So let’s go back to the basics of what an Ulzzang is about and learn more on how to get that picture perfect look through different posing techniques!

1. SMILE

Smiling in photos brings out your personality and makes you more youthful and charming. Of course, your smile has to be natural and not look to forced. Don’t forget to smile with your eyes, because if your eyes aren’t smiling, then you’re definitely not smiling at all!

TIP: Instead of saying ‘cheese!’ try saying ‘Wednesday’ as it makes your muscles around the mouth relax and make you smile naturally.
