The reason why IVE’s Wonyoung often draws criticism: Lacking skills or netizens’ jealousy? 

Once again, IVE’s Wonyoung made netizens enter a heated debate.

Recently, a netizen on Pann Nate blew up the controversy in the online community for speaking up in defense of IVE’s Wonyoung, the most popular yet controversial female rookie idol in Kpop. OP thinks that the center of IVE is receiving too much unreasonable criticism, not commensurate with the efforts to improve herself that she showed in this 2nd debut.

Regarding her skills such as dancing and singing, OP commented that Wonyoung has improved quite a lot. She doesn’t sing as weakly as when she was active with IZ*ONE. She has also shown a clear effort in controlling her fluidity while dancing, not as stiff as when she competed in Produce 48.

Regarding the role in IVE, OP assessed that Wonyoung fulfilled her role. She is a visual and is doing a great job. Just a few days after debuting, she rose to the top of Kpop 4th generation thanks to her youthful and mesmerizing visuals, bringing IVE’s popularity to a new level. It is nonsense to ask a member in charge of visuals to show skills on par with main dancers or main vocalists. OP feels that netizens have always been too strict with Wonyoung.

This post has attracted many upvotes from other Korean netizens. Most comments acknowledge Wonyoung’s efforts to improve her image and agree that she is getting unwarranted hate because she is simply too… young and pretty, and is hands down one of the most outstanding 4th generation female idols at the moment. 

  • She’s trying to be better but haters just can’t leave her alone. She gets hate just for breathing. People are just jealous because she’s young, rich and pretty. 
  • Out of the 4th generation female idols, she’s the most popular right now. And popularity often comes with controversy and criticism. 
  • I agree. She has improved a lot.
  • Wonyoung exudes a unique charm. That’s why people envy and bash her

On the other hand, there are still some netizens who believe Wonyoung comes under controversy because of her fault. The fact that she takes on the role of the group’s visual center cannot justify lacking skills and attitude problems. 

  • What do you mean Wonyoung tops 4th generation female idols? She has never ranked first on the brand reputation charts 
  • She gets hate for a reason though, not every criticism comes from jealousy
  • She has a celebrity disease, she must think she’s already pretty so there’s no need for her to be talented. I used to like her for visuals but her attitude made me unstan 
  • It’s funny. Many talented vocalists and dancers get hate for their looks, but when Wonyoung is criticized for her skills, her visuals are used to defend her. Aren’t idols supposed to be singers at the end of the day?
