Pop Rocks

4Minute is K-Pop's hottest issue.
Pop Rocks 4Minute is K-Pop's hottest issue.

4Minute, one of Korea's newest and fastest-rising pop girl groups, recently held their Philippine promo tour for their mini-album release For Muzik. They made the rounds of SM Supermalls around the metro last February 4-8, spreading their infectious K-Pop sound to thousands of fans.

Their style, described as “candy funky,” fits their super-saturated, clubby-colorful image and music to a T. Based on the videos of their releases Hot Issue, Muzik and What A Girl Wants, brights and graphic cuts were their outfits of choice, with the most runway-worthy haircuts and fashion-forward accessories to boot (of which jewelry, especially earrings, were the members' self-confessed favorites).

Although the SBS Power Rookies' ensembles were trademark K-Pop, their beauty style is what left us green with envy. Flawless skin, razor-sharp makeup and an overall youthful glow, like most East Asians, were the hallmarks of their look. They brought back the pink, too: in a market tired of the same ol' neutrals, their bold use of color, rendered in sophisticated textures, made us hanker for our own brand of star appeal.

Ed's note: It's official, ladies—the sizzling haute, matte pink lip has gone beyond bubblegum pop and is still what every girl wants.
