IVE Ahn Yujin’s stage outfit is causing a controversy, “Why is she wearing this? Isn’t she a minor?”
The stage costume of Ahn Yu-jin, a member of the rookie group IVE, is receiving mixed responses from netizens.
On the broadcast of MBC’s “Show! Music Core” aired on December 4th, the debut stage of the new girl group IVE, which IZ*ONE’s former members Jang Won-young and Ahn Yu-jin belong to, was set up.
On this day, IVE conducted a short interview with Music Core MCs before their debut stage. After that, IVE performed their debut song “Eleven”.
After the broadcast, netizens on an only community raised discussions, giving attention to Ahn Yu-jin’s stage outfit. Ahn Yu-jin wore a body-tighten black T-shirt and a short black skirt. She also highlighted her style by matching 2 belts at the same time. What caused the controversy was the top that layered Yujin’s T-shirt on the outside.
It looked similar to a kind of bustier that is usually worn with T-shirts. However, if you take a closer look, the wire appeared on the outside, making it look like a loosened bra.
The Internet user who raised this issue said, “It’s embarrassing looking at the whole outfit, and this style is not pretty at all. Ahn Yu-jin is still a minor. Her hair looks weird, too.”
Many netizens showed reactions, such as, “I was so curious about why everyone was talking about their outfits during the live broadcast…”, “What is this thing? It’s embarrassing”, “Who is their cordi?”, “It looks exactly like a bra”, “Is it really a bra?”, “I think her outfit is not pretty at all”, “I thought it was a bustier”, “Isn’t she a minor?”, “She’s still a minor”, “I hope her cordi won’t dress her up like this anymore”, “The color makes it look even more similar to a bra”, “It looks exactly like a bra. There was even a wire hook…”
On the other hand, others also raised different opinions, saying, “I know what they want by creating this outfit”, “There are lots of stage outfits like this”, “Other female singers also wear this kind of design”, “Stage costumes are supposed to look like that”, “I don’t think it’s weird. It doesn’t look like a bra at all”.
Among netizens, some people pointed out a bustier outfit that Jennie wore during a performance of BLACKPINK, saying, “The stage costume kinda feels like this, right?”
IVE is the first girl group that Starship Entertainment debuted after 5 years. Along with Gaeul, Liz, Rei and Lee Seo, the joining of IZ*ONE former members Jang Won-young and Ahn Yu-jin once made headlines. IVE performed their first debut stage on KBS2’s Music Bank on December 3rd.
Meanwhile, IVE’s leader Ahn Yu-jin was born in 2003 and is currently 18 years old.
