Popular gaming streaming Pokimane recently visited South Korea.
The famous streamer shared her excitement at getting to explore South Korea. Visiting animal cafes, eating lots of food, and seeing buskers perform.
And Pokimane continually expressed her gratitude for all the “cute” fans she met while traveling.
I’m in heaven meeting so many cute girl fans.
But while Pokimane definitely enjoyed her trip to South Korea, there was one brief moment that caught the famous streamer off guard.
While streaming, Pokimane shares a story of how an older Korean woman criticized her outfit for showing too much skin. Pokimane explains that she was wearing sweatpants and a crop top, that only showed a little bit of her stomach, while going to a convenience store with her friend.
In the morning we went on our convenience store run and I was wearing sweatpants and a [crop top]. And there was about this much of my midriff showing… Full crop top, full long sweat pants.
Even though only a bit of her midriff was showing, an older woman gave Pokimane a “death stare.”
[The older woman] walks by us. She looks at me, she [gestures at her stomach]. I’ve never in my life… Especially [as] someone who’s like ‘growing up a good girl,’ I’ve never had an older lady give me a death stare like that.
Pokimane was confused at the time since she was barely showing any skin, wondering what the woman was gesturing for.
I was like, ‘Is she saying I ened to cover up this two centimeter of skin? Or is she calling me fat? Or is she asking if I’m pregnant?’
And while Pokimane’s encounter with this more conservative woman might have been uncomfortable, she certainly received a lot of love from her Korean and international fans.
Even tweeting that she doesn’t want to leave Korea.
korea streams have been amazing ❤️ i never wanna leave..
