Hyori gives designing a try
Pop star Hyori is designing her own T-shirt. And I use the word “designing” loosely.
The shirt is to commemorate her upcoming concert(s) on the 19th and 20th (her first since going solo) and will be presented to all the concertgoers as an expression of Hyori’s appreciation. And when I raise a skeptical eyebrow to the labeling of Hyori as a designer, it’s not just because that T-shirt is fugly, but because the shirt is really just a sketch version of her third-album promotional “Hyorish” poster anyway, which she did not design.
I mean, fine, we all know that stars like to flaunt their artsy hobbies, whether it’s through cooking, or
singing (or singing, or singing some more, or rapping), or writing (fiction, essays, or *cough*allegedly* nonfiction), or photography, or songwriting, or other artistic endeavors (sketchbooks, crafts, and paintings). And so on and so forth.
But sometimes these things don’t correlate to actual artistic talent so much as they are lame promotional gimmicks or vanity exercises. Then again, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised; this is Hyori, whose success has never had anything to do with originality.
