As unbelievable as it sounds…someone like her exists. Meet Ji Hyun Ji, a considerably pretty girl who has one strange habit that definitely doesn’t match her outward appearance. Especially since she decided to stop brushing her teeth a full decade ago. Seriously…gross.
Featured on tvN’s Martian Virus, a popular TV program based in Seoul, Korea, the idea of the show is that they introduce those with habits or characteristics that many may find weird or grotesque (guessing this is where the martian of the title comes into play), but the individual at hand is proud of it nonetheless.
So miss Ji Hyun Ji, delightfully also known by her nickname, “Cutey Yellowish” (I know.) has been so unfamiliar with that daily routine that you and I probably do without thinking, that she says she forgot how. The actual last time she remembers doing so was when her mother brushed teeth for her.
Though she claims to have a reason for this habit: “I do not understand why people should brush teeth, as it is not like others will look into your mouth. As food scraps pile on, they will actually protect my teeth.” (GIRL. Are you kidding me? What is this logic?!)
I should mention that she does take the effort to wipe her front teeth with a tissue on “special” occasions. (I want to cry for her plaque…)
So back to the show, where they plan to reveal the dentists’ diagnosis on her teeth’s condition, which they claim is the most shocking incident of their careers. And even though Ji Hyun Ji has forgotten how to brush her teeth, the program will also try to persuade her to do so again.
So somehow…I think I found another crazy beauty story that beats out the last one. I want to seriously yell at her. I mean, I can’t even manage a day without brushing my teeth before just feeling like they’re dirty. But how do you let 10 years go by?!
Okay, somewhere in her head, there’s a tiny bit of reasonable logic, since she did mention that she at least wipes her teeth for those “special” events. But man…whether she does or doesn’t have a boyfriend…how does anyone get near her mouth? Insane. Let alone be near her breath…I hope she’s a mint popper at least. She’s also fairly pretty too, so it really doesn’t match her visuals.
If interested, I did manage to find the episode here (unfortunately no English subtitles) if you’re interested in watching. I was mainly interested to see if the people on the show managed to convince her to take up brushing again. Or at least that it’s not a waste of time…
