Pristin's Kyla challenges the beauty standards of female idols?





Article: Criticisms rain on a girl group member "needs dieting immediately"... what are your thoughts?

1. [+1,467, -249] Korea is too obsessed with looks... so what if an idol is chubby if she's talented?

2. [+1,175, -330] Considering that an idol is someone who is making money off of their looks, not managing your looks means you're not fit for the job

3. [+519, -115] I understand being chubby to a certain point but she's at a point where you'd be called fat even among non-idols

4. [+84, -8] Getting criticized for your weight is unavoidable. Star potential comes from your visuals but some people are able to overcome that with superior talent like Young Hyun or BMK. You never see anyone calling them pigs, do you?

5. [+76, -6] Her looks are only being judged because she's a celebrity. It's the same in any other culture.

6. [+61, -4] I think idols should look like idols. I thought it was gross when Shindong first debuted too ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+55, -5] Like the best reply said, it shouldn't matter if she's talented but who expects talent from an idol? They're just kids who come out in huge groups and barely sing a few seconds per line and you're going to argue talent? That's why they're judged on their looks.

8. [+44, -7] If she doesn't want to be judged by the public, then don't be a celebrity.

9. [+41, -3] Based on the screenshots alone, she really does need to lose weight, idol or not.

10. [+39, -5] Can't help the beauty standards of our country. Especially idols, who make money off of their popularity. Their popularity drops the more they deviate from the beauty standards.

11. [+34, -2] Well she'll lose it if she cares at all about her career as a celebrity

12. [+29, -3] I remember Shindong got a lot of hate too for his looks and body but he made up for it with funny dances and stuff...

13. [+26, -6] Anyone who is saying she looks good is probably just as fat as her

14. [+25, -1] Seems like noise marketing... get some attention for it and we'll see her in 6 months with media titles like 'Pristin Kyla loses a ton of weight', 'Pristin Kyla's beauty goes up after weight loss!!', 'Pristin Kyla, was she always this beautiful?'

15. [+17, -1] Okay that's pretty bad... a girl group member not managing her weight means she's not doing her job or taking care of herself. The whole point of her job is to be seen by the eyes of the public. She needs to quit being an idol if she can't take care of herself.
