Lana worked part-time as a model while studying at University, during which many agencies suggested that she become a trainee, which she did. Lana was supposed to debut towards the end of with Thought Entertainment, according to her interview with Sports Seoul. However, due to complications, she signed and debuted under HiCC Entertainment instead.
Why can these many of these foreign idols be embraced by K-Pop fans and not Lana? One can argue that the situation is different as these members make up a fraction of a group that still comprises, for the most part, of Korean members. However, there also exist the K-Pop groups Z-Boy s and Z-Girlswhich are sister groups comprising of 7 members from different Asian countries, none of whom are Korean.
Neither of these situations drew the ire of fans as much as Lana, and the all-American, mostly white K-Pop group EXP Edition before her, which begs the question: why? It can be argued that this is because these artists are appropriating Korean culture for their benefit, while other foreign idols appreciate it.
However, Lana moved to Korea, made an effort to learn the language, and studied there before training to become an idol. There is no evidence from her social media presence of her trying to exotify or mock Korea or its culture. EXP Editionon the other hand, never lived in Koreaand have not immersed themselves in its culture, or underwent the rigorous training that Korean idols go through. The answer to that question lies in the fact that Lana is white, her whiteness gives her privilege that her PoC counterparts do not have, and she may be using this privilege for her benefit.
This privilege is an aftermath of European imperialism and colonization. Beginning in the early 15th century and well into the late 19th century, European powers invaded, conquered, and exploited large parts of the Americas, Asia, and Africa. As conquerors, Europeans held power and wealth. This allowed the colour of their skin and their features—light skin, big eyes, thin, roman nose—to become equated with beauty because those with these features held a higher social status.
Despite gaining their freedom, many previously colonized countries still hold onto these Western beauty ideals— among other Eurocentric concepts, thanks to the widespread nature of Western media. South Korea is one of them. This can be evidenced in the popularity of surgical procedures that create double-eyelids and taller, upturned noses, and the numerous cosmetic products in South Korea promising a lighter or brighter skin.
The saturation of these features among numerous Korean celebrities reinforces these beauty standards rather than dispelling them, creating a vicious cycle. Lana, being white, has fair skin and a tall, upturned nose, though her eyes are admittedly small and make her look vaguely Asian.
Many diaspora Korean individuals turn to K-Pop to achieve their dreams of becoming an artist, as there is a dearth of good Asian representation in Western entertainment industries. If she fell in love with Korean and wanted to merely interact with Korean culture, she could have lived and studied there as she was already doing. If she wanted to be an ambassador for her culture in Korea, as Coco Avenue intended to do, then she has not been doing a good job. Fans have theorized that Lana saw her whiteness as an easy way both into the industry, as well as to quickly achieve fame and success within it as South Korean audiences would overlook her talent or lack of, in favour of her appearance.
While that could certainly be true, Lana has not given any in-depth interviews nor appeared on any variety shows after her debut so it remains to be seen whether her company will use the novelty of her appearance as a marketing tool.
For now, any answers about her motivations and aspirations in the K-Pop industry remain up in the air, and her supporters and naysayers alike will just have to let time and South Korean audiences take the wheel.You might remember her from all sorts of Korean variety shows.
Korean entertainment agency, HICC Entertainment recently announced that their trainee, Lana, who is originally from Russia, is making her debut as a solo singer.

Why is Russian Lana bashed for being koreaboo, but CL celebrated for being blackaboo
The idea that Koreaboos are meant to hide in the shadows and keep their passion a secret, because its a shameful thing for a Westerner to be interested in Asian culture out in the open. It all reeks of double standards and prejudice.
Your faves have always copied from white aesthetics. And now there's a girl with genuine white genetics with real pale skin and color hair, and y'all are outraged at her existence. Or you just jealous she has a chance of getting with your oppas and you never will?
Coming up with some fake "receipts" so you can use it as an excuse to hate on her. Zuko1 likes this. I can't believe I had to read this Yikes what's up with all of this? I think you are just trolling Because it can't be possible; "white aesthetics"?? Is this even a thing? SunyoungIsCute likes this. I personally don't see the problem with a russian girl debuting in kpop. Half of the members in my bias group aren't even korean either so Who exactly is "outraged by her existence"?
I do agree I sense some hostility against her from Ifans this should stop. Kielik Trainee. I agree cl is a black wanabee But no one care about cultural appropriation in real life. Haolat Cigarettes after sex. Why are people bashing her for debuting in Korea? Remembering some awkward racist remarks about russians the op made on akp back in the days, I kinda see what he's aiming for.
OP is seriously wrong. Have you not paid attention to how much kpop fans love to through around the term "cultural appropriation"? Multiple idols got dragged for wearing dreads and doing another things that are common among black people.

In our Declaration of Independence, the founders claim the right to form our own government because it became "necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands" that tie them to another. Eagar Fire Chief Howard Carlson is interviewed by reporter Trisha Hendricks of Channel 12 News in Phoenix at the Arizona Wildfire Forum April 18. EAGAR State Forester Scott Hunt co-hosted the Arizona Wildfire Forum on April 18 in Eagar along with the Arizona State Forestry Division, the Arizona Insurance Council and the Arizona Forest Health Council.
Billed as lessons learned in 2011 and community protection going forward, the forum was attended by officials and representatives from the above organizations as well as local and county officials from Apache, Navajo, Greenlee, and Graham counties and those from Payson, Prescott, Tucson, Ponderosa near Flagstaff, and agents with Farmers Insurance. Hunt started the forum with information about the 2011 fire season and stated that Arizona is considered a wildfire state.
Over 9,000 structures were threatened last year with 111 destroyed. There were 19 red flag days last year, which is wind speeds of 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 60 miles per hour, low relative humidity and high fuel loads.
Hunt went on to give those present the current predictions for the 2012 fire season, which has already started. The National Fire potential map shows the states most at risk with Arizona (the only state in the country that is mostly covered in red) are western New Mexico, Utah and Colorado, a large portion of Florida and up the east coast to North Carolina, as well as parts of California and Nevada. More firefighters than civilians die in forest fires.
