Ulzzang true definition is "best & "face" = best face in korean. They are basically people with above average looks, sometimes with the use of photoshop and haduri who post their pics online, some becoming internet celebrities.
"Hey, see that chick over there? She's pretty enough to be an ulzzang. :D"
Ulzzang (pronounced uhl-jang) translates to "best face" or "good looking" in Korean. This slang is often used by netizens, contests including girls competing for the title of "ulzzang". However, even if this is true, Ulzzang has developed into a subculture/style, rather than a competition/contest event.
They're usually Korean girls (sometimes Chinese or Japanese; some even being in North America), who all share similar features. Eyes being the main focus and concept of the look. They usually use lots of products to make their eyes very large, such as eyelid glue, Korean cosmetic circle lenses, eyeliner, long fake eyelashes, etc. They also usually have fair skin, a small nose and thin small lips, just like anime characters. They use a lot of editing websites such as Photoshop and Haduri to edit their pictures to make them even more prettier. Some Ulzzang's have even gotten famous, such as Goo hye sun, Nam Sang-mi, Park Han-byul, Kang Eun-bi and Kim Hye Sung.
Some people find Ulzzangs incredibly cute and attractive, while others find them fake looking and hideous. All in all, Ulzzang has grown into nothing more than a stereotyped look, which will always be judged and have opinions, for the good or the bad.
Girl One: Ooh, look at those Ulzzang girls! They're really, really pretty. I wish I looked like that!
Girl Two: Ew, what the fuck? Why? They're so fake looking...and they're wannabes.
Girl One: Ah well, we all have opinions...!
Girl Two: *nods* Yeah, I know.
Superficial, terrifying Asians who go through mountains of eyelid glue, circle lenses, makeup, trick camera angles, and photoshop to look like blank-faced aliens.
"Oh shit, that ulzzang's giant eyes are going to haunt me in my sleep."
Ugly asian girls slapping a ton of makeup on their faces taking pictures of themselfs with their eyes open widely making hideous pouty faces. They're myspace whores who do s4s, enter myspace picture "contests", dye their hair to a hazel brown color, and wear fake eyelashes. They all like strawberries, throwing up peace signs, weird smiley expressions such as "^-^" or "T~T", ect. One is just the same as the other.
Ulzzang wannabe: Omigosh! They look sooooo kawaii~ I should buy some eyelid glue to make my eyes bigger too! And maybe dye my hair, and put on some fake eyelashes ^w^
