Netizens defend Kep1er’s Kim Chaehyun when she receives body-shaming comments

Before that, a Youtuber left malicious comments on Kep1er Chaehyun’s body

KEP1ER is one of the hottest rookie girl groups in recent times. Besides the positive topics, KEP1ER is also accidentally entangled in many negative topics. Recently, center Chaehyun was entangled in unnecessary controversy. Specifically, she has garnered attention for her belly fat in a fancam focused video and has been receiving body-shaming comments.

However, this is only a nasty post intended to defame Chaehyun. Chaehyun had just completed performing at the moment. She was breathing quickly and her posture was not straight, so she had skin bulging, giving the impression that her waist was not slim. However, if you look at other images, you’ll notice that her waist is fairly similar to the image in the teaser.

This article was also heavily opposed by Knetizens. Chaehyun‘s physical form, whatever it is, does not deserve to be discussed in such a negative way. The problem is the unreasonably high expectations for female idols’ appearance, not Chaehyun‘s body.

  • Ridiculous. She’s already so thin and pretty.
  • Idol outfits are already ridiculously undersized because stylists will usually tailor children’s clothes to fit… When you wear clothes that are too tight in the waist, it can cause the skin to bulge like that no matter how skinny you are. I can’t believe this is anything worth leaving hate comments calling her fat over….
  • Since when was there a rule that an idol must be skinny no matter what? I think she looks cute…;;
  • I’m personally okay with criticizing an idol for their dance or singing skills but I feel bad when they’re criticized for their looks… I honestly did feel bad for Aespa when they were being hated on for plastic surgery and stuff. It’s really unfair because people will hate on idols for being ugly and then hate on them again for getting work done. It feels like people are a lot harsher on female idols than male idols, not that I’m trying to start a gender war or anything…
  • That’s not tummy fat, it’s just skin bulging
  • Even skinny people will have their stomachs bulge when wearing something that tight.. I saw a ton of idols get it. And especially when they just finish a stage and are drawing deep breaths, it causes your stomach to inflate more…
