Her visuals are goddess-like and boast a striking duality. Depending on her makeup and hairstyling, she can either look like a gentle and delicate beauty or a fierce visual. She looks stunning onstage/onscreen but many idols have noted that she is even more beautiful in person.
If you combine her stunning visuals and stellar personality, there’s no doubt how she has gotten so many brand deals throughout her career.
