Red Velvet‘s Joy has a certain standard when it comes to evaluating her own photos. In an interview with ELLE Korea, she asked her friends to guess which body part of hers needs to be showing in order for her photos to turn out well.
After some guessing, she confirmed that her armpits are her good luck charms during shoots. If they show up on camera, the photo is almost sure to come out good.
They always have to be somehow open.
Her reasoning was more scientific than most people would expect. According to Joy, the body’s pheromones naturally makes her feel and look better while posing.
Pheromones come out from your armpits. I think there’s some type of energy that comes out from armpits.
She likened it to when people naturally try to position themselves so they look their best in front of their crushes.
When someone you like is in front of you…you kind of play around with your hair or you tie your hair up and [your armpits] kind of show. I just heard there’s such a thing as that.
We can’t deny that her pictures are always top notch using this method!
