After ChaeYeon ended up as a winning finalist on Produce 48, becoming a member of IZONE, netizens have been talking about how refreshing it was to see someone worthy becoming a star.

ChaeYeon had been the subject of debate among viewers of the show as netizens were divided on opinion about her. While the majority believed that she deserved to win, a few others have stated that she wasn't attractive enough to be considered an idol.

While many people have differing opinions about how she looks, what is undeniable is that she has talent as a performer.

After the end of Produce 48, netizens have been revisiting and talking about how she was eliminated on 'SIXTEEN' because people didn't think she had the visuals.

She was the first participant to be eliminated on the show.

Looking back, many people have criticized K-Pop and stated that it was all about looking good and not about talent. Fans have defended K-Pop and stated that the idols are talented and that looking good was also a quality that can be considered as talent since not everyone has it.

How do you feel about the arguments?

At first I didn’t actually like chaeyeon idk why I just didn’t but after watching pd48 I fell in love with her, the fact that she kept trying proves that she has passion and deserves to debut and her talents I can’t even begin on her dancing and singing and maybe her visuals aren’t what knetz are looking for but it’s all good because of her charm and talent and for me she will always be beautiful

If anyone watched SIXTEEN, she was eliminated because she didn't express and stand herself out like the others did. The photographer was referring to her expression and image in the photoshoot, not really her looks. This all comes from experience and confidence which I believe she lacked then for anything but for Produce 48 she came on years later and had a completely different aura. I think SIXTEEN and being in JYP gave her more experience, then when she moved companies she blossomed more. This article is judging based on words taken literally and not the context of the situation.… Read more »

that isnt the reason... she left jyp to debut in a better group and for her sister to be able to debut in jyp, since jyp was sure he would not debut siblings in his group

Honestly....that photographer rude and so disrespectful. There's nothing wrong with Chaeyeon at that time...she look so unhappy because she was being criticized and being disrespected. That's why she left JYP and move on to a different company. It's so obvious that she was being treated right. Honestly when i saw what the photographer say and did i just want to drop kick her in the face. She a kid for kid sake...?

since when was kpop all about visuals? if you (whoever reads this) happen think it is, then you need to set your priorities straight. a simple pretty face won’t take you as far as a charming personality can. the more you watch chaeyeon the more you see her charming visuals and personality. i see no reason to dislike her. i’m not even an izone fan but seeing this is very upsetting. degrading idols for their looks isn’t okay. i hope chaeyeon can ignore the negative comments about her and focus on the positives! she’s such a precious gem in the… Read more »

to that person that said she didn't fit in the photo and to say that she was ugly. please look at your face before talking ,she is charming and sweet looking and have more talent then some other idols that are considered "pretty or gorgeous". if you have eyeballs then you would see it to.

sorry i am really harsh. chaeyeon is amazingly good looking and talented . If people would open their Damn eyelids and give chaeyeon a chance ,they would see it.

funny how the woman criticizing her literally has the ugliest dye job and everything about her unattractive, yet she dares say that. lmao. not even a fan of Chaeyeon, but if you're going to try to belittle someone for their kooks, at least make sure you're better looking than them. oof.

The lady didn't say she was ugly. She said she can't pose nicely or blend in with the rest of the group. And she couldnt. I still love her though, so proud of the Chae sisters

I seriously hate people who look at faces instead of talents...
Tbh I know that a lot of girls are prettier than Chaeyeon but Chaeyeon's face is beautiful and she's photogenic
If you only look at faces then don't watch kpop group go somewhere and watch models
This is why a lot of people are feeling down and discouraged..most of us look at faces and didn't even look on what they are capable of..
Proud of all the people who are successful despite being judged by others because of their looks

I really support Chaeyeon and I know how hard she been making her dream to come true as a IZ*ONE members. Chaeyeon did really have visual. As what had been said at the survival. She got her Visual by smiling. She is the best. I hope that IZ*ONE will be known by more people to support them.

haha so funny to judge popularity from visual but seem many popular idol are ugly but still popular like yoona and some from exo sorry but i think they don't really have visual . from snsd tiffany and soyeon is the best visual and from exo is d.o . kpopers open your eyes and see clearly . huh its seem difficult to be an idol since kpop want beauty but they said the one who not really beauty is beauty . its hard to have a major taste issue

Did the staff even think before she talk? I'm only reading and I feel like smacking her for her words. She was probably one of the reason lee chaeyeon doesn't have confidence in her visual when she's actually a gorgeous girl

wow never thought there'd be people who would equate looks and talent. Some Koreans seem to be smart.

IF people are still surprised about this kind of standard then I believe they are newbies!!! What is KPop without the so called visuals. If talent was the only standard for a group they'd be more than a thousand groups promoting in Korea. To make the value of a group more high they'd have to add something to skill and talent and these are the so called beauty and charisma. For a group to be popular the members should first give off a strong stimuli and that is visuals. Lastly, and this is based on my experience not only in… Read more »
