These Celebrity Glo Ups Prove That Asian Celebs Were Just As Awkward As Us
Celebs, they're just like us!
Even the most put-together celebs were just as awkward and gawky as we were once upon a time. These dramatic celebrity glo ups prove that celebs aren’t as different from us normal folks and also went through awkward phases. Sans glam teams and the know-how that comes with growing up, we’re all the same.
11 Most Dramatic Celebrity Glo Ups
1. Alodia Gosiengfiao
One of the most famous cosplayers in the world, Alodia is used to werqing it in front of a camera and basically looking absolutely perfect. But before she knew how to contour her face to look like her favourite anime and video game characters, she was just like any other brace-faced teen.
2. Kim Chiu
When Filipina celebrity Kim Chiu first appeared on Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition, she was cute and fresh-faced, but nothing about her screamed “celebrity”. Now, she’s a bona fide glamazon.
3. Jisoo Kim
Why the long face, Jisoo? Her stoic expression may have something to do with that unfortunate hairstyle. Jisoo, “The Face” of popular K-pop group BlackPink, has always been a pretty girl, but this Lord Farquaad-esque ‘do was not doing her any favours.
4. Iza Calzado
Filipino celebrity Iza Calzado has always been open about struggling with her weight growing up. Now, she’s learned how to stay fit and embrace her curves.
5. Carrie Wong
Like most celebrities, Singaporean actress Carrie Wong has a perfectly curated Instagram feed that shows off her impeccable style. But there was once a time when she rocked emo bangs and didn’t quite know how to project in front of a camera without a front-facing lens. It’s okay, Carrie. We’ve all been there.
5. Arci Muñoz
Filipina singer and actress Arci Muñoz is now known for her head-turning style and doll-like face, but when she first appeared on television for the talent search show Starstruck, she looked completely different! This transformation is one of the most jaw-dropping celebrity glo ups that we’ve seen.
6. Sarah Lahbati
Sarah Lahbati was always a looker, but the years have been good to her. Since her days on Starstruck, she’s learned how contour her face and not overpluck her brows, which has made a world of a difference.
7. Jayley Woo
Does Singaporean actress Jayley Woo regret her orange-haired days? We don’t know, but no one can deny that her style today is on point.
8. Lisa Manoban
Lisa from BlackPink has one of the most recognisable faces in K-pop, but we can say that she’s come a loooong way from her pre-debut days.
9. Georgina Wilson
This Filipina “It Girl” struggled with her weight growing up, but is now one of the most sought-after models in the Philippines. (She captioned this photo “the throwback from hell”.)
Now, CL is known for her dramatic cat-eye look and red lip, but back when she was younger… let’s just say that she might have struggled a bit to find what works for her.
11. Rhian Ramos
She might be hella sexy now, but when she was younger, Filipina actress Rhian Ramos struggled with her weight. At one point in grade school, she weighted 150 pounds!
