Beauty standards have great strength, and K-Pop idols have received bad comments from those who criticize the way they look.
Entering the K-Pop industry places a great number of requirements on idols, in addition to the talent they must possess for singing and dancing, it is important that they meet South Korean beauty standards, but this expectation has caused some girls to receive very cruel criticism about their appearance.
For many of us, K-Pop idols always manage to look incredible, they have wonderful looks and outfits, but their beauty is another undeniable point.

As a consequence, Wendy has experienced changes in her weight that again gave way to negative comments against her.
Jihyo trained for much of her life at JYP Entertainment, however, when she joined SIXTEEN’s survival show, this idol received bad comments for her weight. This happened on several occasions, where she was told by photographers and Jinyoung Park that to be an idol, she had to take better care of her image than she does now.
