Mainland woman identifies 4 prominent traits of Hong Kong girls at a glance, prompting resonance among netizens


15th April 2024 – (Hong Kong) A mainland Chinese user uploaded a photo on XiaoHongShu of a girl taken on the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, and listed four distinct characteristics that caught her attention. The post sparked a heated discussion among netizens, with some praising the vibrant appearance of Hong Kong girls, while others acknowledged the diversity in their styles.

The mainland Chinese user titled her post, “The First Time I Found Hong Kong Girls Scary…” and shared a snapshot of a girl with long hair and fair skin, wearing a white sleeveless mini dress. The girl struck a pose at a street corner, seemingly drawing the attention of passersby.

The user went on to highlight four prominent features of Hong Kong girls, praising their “subtle makeup,” “smooth and tender skin,” “radiant and youthful complexion,” and an overall “innocent and youthful” look. The user expressed her surprise and exclaimed, “They have completely shattered my preconceived notions. Is it the result of their environment?”

However, the user also felt a sense of self-deprecation, comparing her own complexion and tired eyes, particularly when she stays up late, and yearned for the same state as the Hong Kong girls. She wondered, “Why is my complexion so dull? Even without a mask, I dare not step out. It’s amazing!”

The post ignited a lively discussion among netizens, with some praising the good complexion of Hong Kong girls and their overall youthful appearance. Others pointed out that Hong Kong girls possess a refined and elegant charm, but also acknowledged that their style varies depending on the occasion. One commenter humorously remarked, “Most of the time, they are sporting big sneakers and tight pants. Who would dress up nicely to stroll around Mong Kok every day?”

There were also speculations among netizens that the girl in the photo might not be a Hong Kong local, suggesting that if Hong Kong people had the time to dress so well, they would not be seen taking street photos.
