After the “strawberry” controversy, Jang Wonyoung from IVE was criticized again for eating pizza in THIS way for the sake of a commercial.
IVE Chan Wonen eats pizza like this — why is she hated for it?
On January 20, Jang Wonyoung from IVE caused another controversy about how she eats pizza.
In a popular online community, the problem started when a network user wrote an article with the headline “Ah… Wonyoung. Who eats pizza like that?”
If you click on the article, it contains a GIF of the singer “ELEVEN” from the advertisement of the American chain of pizza restaurants “Papa John’s”. On the same day, a group of six people was introduced as the brand’s new model.
The photo shows Jang holding a pizza and smiling at the camera as he takes a small bite. She pulled out the processed cheese and showed it to egye, for example, winking at the camera and pouting.
Then the author of the post wrote:
“Of course she’s beautiful, but…”
After downloading the article, it immediately attracted huge attention from both K-pop enthusiasts and netizens, gaining about 118 thousand views. He also received 715 votes and about 300 comments, half of which criticized the singer ELEVEN.
In particular, Jang Wonyoung caused Internet users to raise eyebrows because of her “excessive” and “unnatural” way of eating pizza. They stressed that usually you will have more, especially for a commercial, to increase the appetite of the audience; however, Wonen, who took a small bite, looks unconvincing.
- “Wow, I just lost my appetite. Was it CF? Amazing (sarcasm).”
- “It’s a little too much, regardless of whether she’s being filmed for advertising or not.”
- “I feel lost.”
- “I’m a pizza lover, but now I’ve lost all my appetites.”
Many explained that there was no doubt that Jang Wonyong’s appearance was on another level, but her expressions and cute actions were “too big.” Some agreed and urged her agency Starship to allow her to become more natural, rather than “locking” her in her “It Girl” image.
DIVEs Defend IVE’s Jang Wonen After Debate about Him Eating Pizza
During the discussion, DIVE (IVE’s fandom), as well as some K-Netz, came forward to protect the idol from the hate she receives.
“The ladies (girls) have come back to this again with their mentality of “a woman is another woman’s worst enemy.” models shoot ads (like this), but why are you scolding Jang Wonyoung ?
As expected, a beautiful and successful woman is just perfect to become an enemy of sororities. However, you pretend you don’t hate the other woman and act like you don’t have an inferiority complex.
While Pann fans are blushing and peeling the skin off Jang Wonyong’s face in the corner, Jang Wonyong, who shot another commercial today, wins another victory.”
