8 Idols Who Have Confessed To Being Insecure About Their Bodies

Even idols can feel self-conscious.

These idols are all beautiful people, inside and out, but even they have “flaws” that make them feel self-conscious about their bodies.


1. Jeongyeon (TWICE)

When Jeongyeon appeared on KBS2’s Hello Counselor (along with Tzuyu and Sana), the hosts asked if there was anything she didn’t like about her body. Jeongyeon confessed that she thought her hands were not pretty, even wrinkly.

We’re not sure what Jeongyeon is talking about though, because her hands always look gorgeous!


2. Jimin (BTS)

BTS fans know just how much Jimin has struggled to maintain a healthy weight.

When Jimin debuted in 2013 he had pinchable cheeks and chiseled abs, but since then his weight has fluctuated.

During BTS’s “Blood Sweat & Tears” era, Jimin followed a strict diet that left him so exhausted that he passed out during dance practices. Jimin lost a total of 15 pounds during this period.

Although Jimin has now reached a healthier weight, he is still very mindful of what he eats. Fans will always love him though, no matter what he weighs!


3. Seolhyun (AOA)

Seolhyun is one of the top visuals in K-Pop, and has been praised for her beautiful face and athletic body. 

Back in 2016, however, she told FNC Entertainment that she is self-conscious about her tanned skin tone, her thighs, and even her face shape. Even so, fans have nothing but praise for her natural beauty!


4. Amber [f(x)]

Ever since the debuted, Amber has been criticized for her non-conforming, “boyish” looks, but she is now embracing her individuality. During the summer, Amber posted a shot from her Nike shoot to her Instagram, along with a meaningful caption.

“for a long time people made me feel ashamed of my body. then i became ashamed of my body. people wanted me to be weak because thats what a girl ‘should’ be like. i threw away my ambitions and goals. well, i’m not that person anymore. I will always continue to work hard, become stronger, and learn to love myself for who i am, imperfections and all.” — Amber


5. Taemin (SHINee)

In the past, Taemin admitted that he was afraid of looking “too pretty”. In fact, it was one of his biggest complexes.

Now that Taemin is older, he may have gained that more “masculine” look he was hoping for, but Shawols know that this prince has always been handsome!


6. Hyolyn

Hyolyn’s biggest body insecurity is her large forehead.

In the past, felt so insecure about her forehead that she took special care to make sure her bangs were always perfect. Fans, however, think she looks amazing with or without bangs!



is not a fan of his natural hair, to put it mildly.

Since being born with curly hair is rare for Koreans, L may have felt he stood out too much during his childhood years.


8. IU

IU revealed her battle with bulimia while filming an episode of Healing Camp in 2014. She said that her heart felt empty and anxious due to her fear that she was not a talented enough singer. To fill the void, IU would eat until she vomited, but thankfully she sought treatment and has recovered.

IU has a major hangup with her small hands. She thinks they make her face look big by comparison, which is definitely not true!
