TWICE’s Tzuyu Proves Confidence Is The Key To Being Attractive: The Idol Is Praised For Going Against K-Pop Beauty Standard

Skinny body, V-shaped face, spotless skin are some of Korean beauty standards we may have known. However, TWICE's maknae, Tzuyu would probably disagree if everyone has to be skinny in order to look pretty. The idol recently proves that everyone can always look attractive as long as they're confident.

Netizens have been clamoring over Tzuyu's recent snapshots that spread all over the internet recently. Tzuyu was seen at Incheon Airport before heading for an event in Singapore. According to Allkpop, Tzuyu seems like she's gained a little weight in the recent photo of her wearing a pair of jeans and white coat. Netizens couldn't help but notice the TWICE idol looks chubbier, although that doesn't change the fact that she still looks stunning as usual.

What makes many fans were furious is the strong criticism some of the netizens have thrown to Tzuyu. There were before-after photos that eventually resulted in heated debate among K-Pop communities. Some people criticized Tzuyu for being chubbier than she's supposed to be, while the majority defended her for her choice to stay healthy and didn't starve herself like other idols.

A fan commented in an online forum saying Tzuyu looks normal compared to other idols. Rather than adhering to Korean beauty standards a lot of people are struggling for, Tzuyu proves that female idols can still look beautiful without having to starve themselves. According to Korea Boo, Tzuyu earns the title of Goddess of Eating for her ability to maintain her shape without a strict diet.

Long before TWICE gained international recognition, fans have praised Tzuyu for her stunning visuals. Even though she's only 17 years old, she has garnered massive attentions that resulted in her starring in dozens of commercials, which is a big barometer of success for K-pop idols. It's good to know Tzuyu still maintains her healthy figure and confidence at the same time, while there are idols who were forced to watch their weights on a daily basis.
