Ok, so you’ve asked for it for a while now, and we finally get to play with some Circle Lenses. Woohoo! Usually we’re confused about how to use the product, but these are pretty self-explanatory, if you’re used to using contact lenses, that is. Put them on your eyeball and BOOM! You’re so much cuter than before! They do feel a bit different from other lenses, though: because they’re so much bigger than usual lenses, you can feel them a bit more when you blink, but after a while you get used to them.

Circle Lens Colors

Different Circle Lens colors on Martina's eyes

These lenses are a staple for the Ulzzang look. We mentioned Ulzzang in the video, but perhaps we didn’t do the concept justice. Take a look at these pics of Ulzzang to get a better idea of what Ulzzang looks like (but Martina kinda pulls off the look, no?). We describe it as having a doll-face, but it literally translates to “best face,” which is kinda unfair, because we’re not really sure that this look is the best look available. It’s cool, yeah, and fun as well, but we couldn’t imagine looking like this all the time.

Otherwise, we wanted to say something about this in relation to the Double Eyelid Tape we reviewed a while ago, but we were worried that it would open up old wounds. It seems like there’s a fascination with eyes in Korea that we’re just not that used to from back home. We’re not opposed to Circle Lenses as we are against eyelid tape and eye surgery, though. Lenses are more playful, it seems, and so we’re cool with them. Sometimes even we go out with the lenses on if we’re feeling playful, but – yeah – only sometimes! So if you see us on the streets and we’ve got these on, make sure you call us Ulzzang :D

Anyhow, thanks big time to Angelic Rain for sending us some Circle Lenses to play with and for sponsoring this contest! Woohoo! To win the contest, all you have to do is tell us who you think would look the creepiest with Circle Lenses on. We said in the video that it’s only for our YouTube subscribers, and that you should only post on our YouTube page, but – nahhh – you can post it here as well :D So feel free to leave your answers in the comments to this page. Huzzah! Also, if you don’t wind up winning the prize, and still want to get some circle lenses, we’ve got a discount code for you: at the checkout, enter the code EYK and you’ll get 10% off your order. Sweet! We chose last week’s winner from this site’s comments, as well, so congrats to CAPS4SAMMEH for winning. Your Twonkle Twonkle rhyme made us laugh the most :D

    ive been begging my mom and dad to let me get circle lenses but they are concerned that they will make me blind because asian eyes are not the exact same shape as american eyes however ive noticed in some of your other videos that you still ware them even after this video do they hurt at all,how many days a week do you ware them for, and how long do you usally ware them for?

    I wonder what is your favourite shop ? Mine is Solution-lens.com after trying most of them, I really like to get a free pair with every order.

  6. LOLOLOL!! BIG BANG HAIR! LOVE BIGBANG & YOU TWO. :**

  7. I saw a poster advertising some in the front window of an optometrist as I was leaving Finch station (in Toronto).

  8. This is kinda funny because about 4 weeks ago, Martina went through this stage where she was wearing circle lenses. Heh.

  9. Who would look the scariest? Well, I do belive that that would be….

    Who would look the scariest? That could be hard to tell.
    But most agree it’s Will Smith, from MIB and Hancock as well.

    We’ve seen him in movies, TV shows hard to forget.
    But the one thing we have mot seen, is him in creepy contacts yet!

    In the end, it’s something we’d like to avoid, too many images to erase.
    If you don’t agree with me, let him put them on…

    And stare you right in the face!

    Today while shopping in Hawaii’s 1st “Face shop” store, I saw a Korean girl with “circle lenses”. At first, I thought she was wearing color contacts. However I looked directly at her eyes and thought “Wow, that is looks weird and WTF.” Anyway, I want to thank you for explaining this strange fad/trend. Will the young adults in Hawaii do this, not! or Maybe? Anyway, thank you. A hui hou e malama pono (until we met again, take care) Pua

  11. I kinda think Choi Minho would look creep with circle lenses…O.O

  12. Yoo Jae Suk, with his glasses off.

  13. chime batsaikhan

    u guys are making fun of korean culture. for u guys to go to their country and say they dont need it and call it weird. americans get plastic surgery all the time… boobs, nose, lipo, etc..thats their country and thats they way they are. it may look weir to u cuz ur not korean… typical americans always think theyre better than everyone.. and ur not even using the double eye lid tape wrong and the aplicator is to find out where ur crease should be not to stick the tape to it and apply it .. 

  14. very information, thanks for  sharing : )

  15. I think Martina looks cute with the circle lenses in :/ 

  16. LOL at 2:50 Simon had a Key from SHINee moment!!! Wiping his lip like on the Ring Ding Dong MV!!! hehehe

  17. BTW, love the portal reference :)

  18. Lenses without a prescription can be extremely harmful for your eyes.  The reason contact lens prescriptions are different from glasses prescriptions is because they also take into consideration, the shape of the eye.  We don’t all have the same shaped eyeballs.  There is a big fuss in the US now about over-the-counter lenses.  In most states, it is illegal to sell contact lenses unless you are a licensed optometrist.

  19. you guys look like you have no soul with them on… D:

  20. before i knew what circle lenses were, i couldn’t figure out why some of my female middle school students had the eyes of soulless androids. even knowing now that they’re just wearing contact lenses doesn’t make any difference… i still get the creeps when i see someone wearing them. to me, they’re just scary, not cute.

    …i kind of want to try them. mwahaha.

  21. Rlatngus8476

    i don’t really like to wear cicle lenses anyway(in korean)

  22. Rikku Strife

    Saoirseronan!!

  23. I love your videos.
    I agree. Earl-zzang is closer sound, I guess.

    And Ul(wool?)-Ssang means ‘long face’
    UL is ‘about to cry or weep’ and Ssang means face or facial expression.

    By the way, how was your Children’s day in Korea?
    Have you had some chance to buy ppo-ro-ro?

  24. ulzzang
    earl-zzang is better sound

  25. the one that would definitely look creepy using a circle lens will be Lee Joon from MBLAQ. cos he has the creepiest glare ever and adding the circle lens will be worse. so yeah ^^

  26. Jack Nicholson would definitly be the most terrifying view to me if he was wearing circle lenses! I have goosebumps just to think about it. Imagine him, head halfway through the door saying: “Heeeere’s Johnny!” wearing black circles lenses… Urgh!

  27. ummm… well i would think… taemin from shinee. i no he is adorable and everything but in this picture he looks like he’s about to murder someone…

    P.S. hehe onew is lookin pretty fine though!

    P.P.S. by the way martina, you look gorgeous! with or without the lenses!

  28. Love Jitters

    Those are so freaking radical, holy cow. Imagine all of the people you could pop up behind and just be like “RAAAHHH” and they’d become all terrified and stuff. It would be fantastic.

    James Franco would totally be horrifying with those. He looks all hot and awesome, but he still has that whole creepy guy thing going on in a lot of his roles (or even the whole burnout thing in Freaks & Geeks!) and he would just look so much crazier. Just imagine him coming up to you with his James Franco-ness and his curly hair and haphazardly-shaven chin and his eyes all wide wearing circle lenses. IMAGINE it. ARE YOU SCARED YET?

    …. I am. ;_;

  29. Kevin Lam

    Christopher Walken can be very creepy if he wears circle lenses …

  30. I don’t know if you guys watched Dream High (but it’s amazing, watch it watch it!):
    Wouldn’t 강선생님 and JYP look… adorable… but really creepy… with circle lenses? JYP’s eyes are too small so uhh, the blue isn’t that obvious but look at Teacher Kang ohh /faint, oh the shock

  31. Tibby San Diego

    taeyang. he has tiny eyes if u put circle lenses in them……

  32. Mika Daebak

    Jung Juri (정주리) would totally look creepy with these circle lenses especially when she make’s her “lion face’s” @.@ kkkkkk xD (That would be a “creepy lion-doll face”o_o

    ~~Sorry for my bad English… >___<~

  33. I’d go for T-ara, the whole group, because of their look in the stalkerish songs. JI YEON could become a pretty creepy girl.

    Otherwise for the football fans, Gennaro Gattuso or maybe Park Ji Sung.

  34. I think Michael Jackson would look the creepiest with circle lenses.

  35. Hmmm Gotta go with Johnny Depp while dressed as Willy WOnka… face it, he was pretty freaky without it anyway (think Alice)…. BTW.. Simon, do you need any more Ranch dressing powder? Just got a new couple of containers from the states… JDinKOrea@yahoo
