Many were happy to see Jeongyeon appear with the group but were also shocked by the idol's apparent weight gain.
However, her weight gain did not spark hate among ONCEs. Instead, many were happy that the idol was back with her group. Many were aware that Jeongyeon had gained weight due to her medication for her herniated disc and anxiety disorder, which caused fans to feel sorry for the idol.
