World’s First Snaggletooth Girl Group

You may have heard of the recent dental trend in Japan called tsuke yaeba, where women get their canines capped to get a crooked set of chompers. If so, you might have guessed that a snaggletooth girl group couldn’t be far behind, and here they are: TYB48.

Eighteen-year-olds Nana, Mio and Rika were chosen from a field of applicants recruited by a dental clinic specializing in tsuke yaeba. Girls with crooked teeth are generally thought to be cute in Japan, and with TYB48 as fashion trendsetters, organizers hope to encourage young women not blessed with overlapping fangs to take have their teeth cosmetically altered.

The group will have their debut concert in Akihabara on April 30th, and concert goers will also be able to pick up copies of their first CD, frighteningly titled “Mind If I Bite?”

Seriously don't see the point in ruining perfect teeth for those unless you're born with them.

mte. Can't believe organizers are actually encouraging this. Shame on them.

If it's what they think is attractive, then why is an issue if they're doing this so make their teeth not "perfect"? I kind of view it as the same/similar to when people get braces to correct crooked teeth. They're just perceiving a different type of tooth related beauty.

IMO, of course.

Pretty true thoughts. But at least, braces helps in correcting teeth. In this case, they might regret having spoiled the shape of their teeth when they're older. It's all up to them anyway. I think they get too caught up in the new trends every time without taking into consideration of the outcome in the future.
