Happy St. Patrick’s Day: 15 K-pop Idols with Green Hair
St. Patrick’s Day is not celebrated here in Korea, so don’t expect to see your favorite celebrities dolled up in green sweaters or four-leaf clover T-shirts. But the world of K-pop is nothing if not colorful, so if you’re wishing to see green, you totally can… because as we all know, it’s all in the hair. Granted, green is not a common choice for K-pop hair, but some brave idols have dared to dye their hair in shades of emerald or chartreuse, while others have sported green as part of the natural fading process from blue to blond. Here we bring you a gallery of green-haired K-pop idols, which we sincerely hope you will enjoy, preferably while drinking green beer or maybe just a shamrock milkshake at McDonald’s.
Shade: Emerald green
Verdict: As green as you can get.
Shade: Black, sea green, blond
Verdict: A totally unexpected way to go green. We love it with the red lips!
Hello Venus’ Lime
Shade: Blue-green mixed with yellow-green
Verdict: Desperately trying to avoid a bad joke about needing lime-colored hair. Love her short do!
Shades: Turquoise and blond
Verdict: Not really green, but super pretty, in kind of an Elsa-inspired way.
T-ara’s Qri (Part I)
Shade: More yellow than green, but still green
Verdict: We’re going to see that Qri is the queen of green. Hold on!
T-ara’s Qri (Part II)
Verdict: As feminine as green can get. We love it!
T-ara’s Qri (Part III)
Shade: Lawn green
Verdict: So striking.
Shade: Seafoam green
Shade: Peridot green
Verdict: Hard to tell. As far as we know, Himchan’s foray into green was limited to this one selfie which he posted on Twitter. Seems like he pulls it off pretty well.
Girls’ Generation’s Sunny
Shade: Platinum and pale green
Verdict: Barely there green.
Shade: Acid green
Verdict: Yeah, we suppose that Key seems more like a soft green kind of guy, if that made any sense at all.
G-Dragon (Part I)
Shade: Emerald green
Verdict: Yeah, it’s green. But this is GD we’re talking about, which means…
G-Dragon (Part II)
Shade: Green and red
Verdict: Just green hair is so boring. Why not go with green and red?
Big Bang’s Daesung
Shade: Icy green
Verdict: Cute. (But when is Daesung not cute?)
Verdict: Unusual, but pretty.
Red Velvet’s Joy
Shade: Black, emerald
Verdict: We loved Red Velvet’s two-toned hair! (To be honest, it made it easier to differentiate the girls, since they were rookies at the time.)
Shade: Bright, bright green… maybe even vegetable green.
Verdict: Okay, we change our minds about Dara. This is as green as you can get. Did he pick the background, or was that just a happy coincidence?
2NE1’s Park Bom
Verdict: It looked green when we were first picking out photos, but after Sehun, this doesn’t even register. But it is very artistic.
That’s all from us, but let us know if we forgot any green-haired idols, and please vote to let us know who rocked green the best. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
