f(x)‘s Amber and NCT‘s Johnny appeared in an episode of Bill Nye‘s new Netflix original Bill Nye Saves the World.
The famous kid’s science program host and TV personality, Bill Nye, was recently involved in the production of an American talk show series called Bill Nye Saves the World that was released exclusively on Netflix just a few days ago. The series features a variety of special guests and K-Pop fans were pleasantly surprised to see that the episode titled “The Sexual Spectrum” actually featured some unexpected idols.
In the episode, viewers see NCT‘s Johnny putting on makeup while Amber talks about the evolution of K-Pop allowing for more girls to don different looks than had been the norm in the industry. A fan of Amber’s told the hosts of the show that Amber was the reason she found the confidence to cut her own hair short and challenging traditional beauty standards.
K-pop has empowered fans to experiment with gender expression.
