Ninja Hood Flip

About

Ninja Hood Flip, also known as Hijab Flip, refers to an optical illusion image featuring South Korean rapper G-Dragon wearing a ninja hood. Depending on the orientation of the image, the perceived expression changes from that of a sly, alluring look to that of a sudden realization and shock. Originating from a K-Pop album art and initially circulated as an optical illusion, since February 2019 the image has been used as a single-panel interactive meme.

Origin

On September 3rd, 2013, the official Facebook[1][2] page of K-Pop singer G-Dragon posted several promotional images for the album Coup D'Etat. Two of the images featured the artist dressed in red clothing, with his head completely wrapped in a long scarf with the exception for his eyes.
