Jungyeon used to be one of the tallest and skinniest TWICE members, but her recent appearance has shocked the public. However, many netizens feel sorry for Jungyeon after knowing the reason for her weight gain.
Jungyeon has always been known as one of the TWICE members with the tallest and slimmest figure, with an ideal height of 1m67 and a skinny body. However, many netizens have been taken aback by the female idol’s recent photos. The screenshots uploaded by fans show that Jungyeon has put on a noticeable amount of weight compared to her familiar skinny look in the past. Some netizens even called this the most shocking change of appearance in Kpop history, even more than 2NE1’s CL.
But the reason for this drastic change of Jungyeon has caused netizens to feel extremely upset and empathetic towards the TWICE’s member. In August, JYP announced that Jungyeon had to halt all activities to focus on her recovery due to psychological anxiety and a herniated disc in her neck. Her medications have inevitably led to side effects such as water retention and hormonal imbalances in the body and thereby caused such a change in appearance.
The latest images of Jungyeon have drawn empathy from fans and netizens. Everyone hopes that she will completely recover soon. There are also many comments saying that despite her weight gain, Jungyeon’s facial features still look the same and as pretty as usual.
