Ryujin (ITZY) has lately lost a lot of weight, and her figure is no longer as full as it once was.
While many female Kpop celebrities are criticized for being excessively thin, Ryujin (ITZY) was known for her healthy body and attractive apple hips. However, fans have recently noticed that Ryujin has lost a significant amount of weight. The images of her coming home from work on October 31 made fans panic because her body was too slim and no longer as full as before.
Ryujin drew notice during the livestream on November 4 due to her slim face and gaunt cheeks. Losing weight improves Ryujin‘s outward appearance, but it also makes her less ‘cute’. Fans believe Ryujin was naturally gorgeous and charming, and that she does not need to follow to the “skinny body” standard.
- She’s lost weight since Mafia In The Morning era, but this time is her biggest loss.
- Ryujin appears to be the thinnest person in ITZY at the moment.
- Compared to other female idols, ITZY has a toned body so I don’t think they are skinny when they are on stage. But in real life, they look really thin.
- She used to have sexy hips, now she looks like any other idol.
However, some Ryujin fans think that the female idol looks fine, not “alarmingly thin”. During the LOCO era, Ryujin herself also affirmed that she still eats well to ensure her health for the busy schedules.
In a video in August 2020, Ryujin also shared about the weight and body issue of Kpop idols. Ryujin said, without a slim body, ITZY would not be able to wear various performance outfits. “It’s not just because of the ‘idol must be slim’ stereotype. What’s more important is the performance. A slim body makes the dance moves look better and you can wear different types of clothes. This is why we always have to maintain a slim body,” the female idol said.
