In Asian countries where many women are on a never-ending conquest to attain smoother and fairer complexion, hardboiled eggs are often used as an analogy for the most ideal skin condition because of their flawlessly smooth texture, lustre, and even, fair tone.

But while hardboiled eggs have been linked to the image of perfect skin for years, a recent post on Twitter opened up a whole new dimension to hardboiled eggs that cannot be unseen. Braise those eggs in soy sauce and they’ll look like the well-oiled shapely bottoms of kuro-gyaru (ganguro) girls! Take the test and see if you can tell them apart!

Hardboiled eggs braised or stewed in soy sauce can be commonly found in many Asian cuisines, such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisine, each prepared with their own unique blend of seasonings and spices.

Being Asian myself, I’ve eaten my fair share of braised eggs since I was a child, and it never crossed my mind that these flavorful eggs looked like butts. However, thanks to this image posted by Japanese Twitter user @gie_ppp, I can never look at braised eggs in the same light again.

▼ Braised egg or kuro-gyaru tushy?



Are you ready for the answer?




▼ 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8 are braised eggs;
1, 3, 7 and 9 are shiny tanned buttocks!

If you don’t believe that 1, 3, 7, and 9 are actually real, human butts, you can see the original image here, but we wouldn’t recommend clicking that link if you’re at work.

So, could you tell them apart? Even though I’ve been eating these eggs for more than two decades, I had a hard time with this one. If you managed to get it spot on, congrats! You can proudly declare yourself Master of the Braised Egg…or maybe Master of the Kuro-gyaru Butt, whichever appeals to you more.
