In the West, people prefer bodies that are voluptuous, and that is often admired more than just a skinny figure. Over time, that trend has also become popular in Korea, with more people wanting luxurious figure rather than just being thin. The era of when women's weights were expected to be in the 40kg range is now long gone, and idols are now gaining fame for having fit and healthy bodies.
With beautiful curved "apple" hips, the Kardashians are the epitome of voluptuous figures. Here are some idols that also posses that kind of body, and have since been dubbed "Korea's Kardashians".
1. MAMAMOO's Hwasa
The reason why Hwasa is called one of "Korea's Kardashians" is not just because of her amazing performance skills, always able to put on a performance while on stage. It's also because of the idol's small waist and honey thighs, which Korean people don't often see! When Hwasa was asked how she stays in shape, the idol revealed she doesn't really have a set diet or exercise. "I just eat," she said, leaving everyone in shock. The power of genes!
2. Apink's Eunji
Apink's Eunji is a famous exercise addict. In the past, the idol confessed that she used to be on strict diets to maintain her weight, but that doing so was detrimental to her health. Now, she maintains her luxurious figure by exercising, which helped her gain some muscle. And her Instagram proves it! Every photo Jung Eunji posts flaunt her amazing, enviable curves. She even has the S-line most Korean women wish for!

4. MOMOLAND's Nancy
Nancy has a body that is not usually found in Korea, and many Korean netizens think it's because she is half-American. Due to her luxurious figure, she has become the envy of Korean women for her "apple hips and hourglass body shape.
