Netizen Body Shames GOT7 YoungJae
The issue of body-shaming in K-Pop comes up every now and then. But considering how much pressure that K-Pop idols already face by agencies to always look perfect, we really can’t help but wonder why some people can’t just cut them some slack.
GOT7 member YoungJae, who recently held a live streaming session for his fans was body-shamed by one netizen.
As he was singing, one comment seemed to have caught his attention more than the rest as it told him to lose some weight. He responded by saying that he was working on it at the moment and that it was nobody’s business but his.
Fans soon began to back him up.

the last time “someone ” told me Youngjae is getting fat he then got sick hours later. Now your asking him to lose weight? fckbij not in my watch. Youngjae is better be gaining height than getting sick and unhealthy so shut your mouth rigth there and mind your own business!!
