This footage of Karina at Coachella may be low quality, but Karina’s CGI-like appearance is always high quality. 

While both had purple hair, the two SM idols were beautiful in different ways. Irene’s visual is faithful to Korean beauty standards, whereas Karina looks chic and modern like a comic character. Furthermore, if Irene has created a legend with her smokey purple hair, then Karina showcases a more futuristic style with her electric violet hairtone.
