Kyla’s body has raised controversy among netizens whether idols should continually “take care” of their body. “Take care” in this sense means that one should work out or be on the diet to be thin, not fit, thin. They say that idols, as well as celebrities, are on TV and earn money being visually attractive aside from their music or work.

Others who oppose the idea say that it’s a stereo type to think that thin = beautiful. This unhealthy beauty standard has been destroying the lives of women, especially idols and celebrities. Idols are being put on a harsh diet schedule, unbelievably unhealthy because it does not match up to the calories they burn. There were precedents of girl idols fainting and having health issues due to being on a diet.

A lot of fans worry that Kyla and young girls like her may be put on harsh diet plans to be visually attractive enough to earn money. 

What do you think? Is it okay a person get worthless and hurtful comments and criticism because of one’s body? Do you agree with the idea of “idols must have a thin, fit for the beauty standard today kind of a body”?

Should there be somewhere idols and their fans aren’t allowed to be closer any more? How far will it be? 

A few days ago, several photos including VIXX’s Leo and a woman were released on the Internet. What’s different from just another photos here is, in the pictures, Leo is consoling his arms around the woman’s shoulders and looking into her eyes so closely. In addition, Leo’s fans claimed that the woman is the homepage master, who owns and operates the fans’ homepage. What upsets fans is Leo is having special, private relationship with a fan who originally shouldn’t be treated differently from just another fans of Leo.  

After the pictures are released, some netizens told that this is the obvious discrimination on fans of Leo. Here are those problematic photos.

Too many stories and guesses were made on these photos, and eventually, JELLYFISH Entertainment, where VIXX belongs to, announce their official feedback. They admitted that woman was a fan of Leo and Leo already was aware of her having wrong behaviors and being eliminated from official fan club. Besides, they announced that it is not true that two of them made a meeting intentionally. According to their explanation, the woman without any permission to enter the supporting program for musical “Mata Hari“, where Leo play a role just appeared all of sudden. Thus, Leo had difficulty restraining her entrance there and made her get out there by making those physical affections. 

Even though the official feedback was given, fans’ tempers seem not to cool down. The main reason mostly mentioned among fans is “how could the idol privately make those physical affection with fans?” and “Finally, the management company admitted there was a private relationship without meaning to be”. Fans are talking about TMI (Too Much Information) on the feedback from JELLYFISH Entertainment. There’s no need to be so detailed, and fans get disappointed by acknowledged facts from the company.

However, such amazing moments can turn into a nightmare in a snap of a finger. The snap can be given by someone who you’ve never thought of bothering or even literally thought of.

After she posted the picture taken in front of the ad on her Instagram, fans of Woo JinYoung, a trainee from Produce 101, asked her to delete the post since the ad resembled too much with the ad of Woo JinYoung. Some fans even said that the ad was plagiarizing and it’s against the law.

Fans of SolBin became speechless by the response and comments from fans of Woo JinYoung. They say that SolBin’s ad wasn’t made for commercial purposes, so asking her to delete the photo and calling it a plagiarism have done nothing but to hurt her feelings.

Plagiarism can be a serious issue in copyrights. It is true, however, that some fans do need to be careful about choosing their words on asking something to be taken down.
