“I totally get when people say ‘I saw this star but I couldn’t recognize him/her.’ It’s not a matter of that star looking better or worse than on the screen. It’s more like… ‘Whoa, what am I looking at? Is that a real person? Where am I… Who is that…’ You don’t have the sanity to process what you’re looking at. It’s that kind of absolute beauty.” — Korean Netizen
