Popular South Korean MMO Aion just got an update. Included in this recent patch was a new golden blond braided hairdo. Gosh, this looks like Elsa from Frozen.
As pointed out by tipster Sang, the patch, which is called "Purple Light Revolution Update," was released today.
Above, you can see how the hairstyle compares to the real Elsa. Below, you can see images from the update.
What makes this worth noting is the timing. Frozen just won an Oscar. It's been a box office smash for Disney, and it's super popular in South Korea. This explains why this Aion patch lets players create totally unofficial Frozen-esque heroines.
Aion is known for its customization. But me? I want to build a snowman, not an Elsa.
The resemblance hasn't escaped Aion players, some of which have been trying to recreate Frozen in game after the patch update. These aren't exact matches, so don't expect that!
Did Elsa have giant black wings in Frozen? I honestly don't remember.
Now, this I definitely don't remember.
