In the now-deleted post, Park Bom showed off her newest hairstyle “transformation”: the Japanese “Hime Cut” hairstyle.

Fans loved the new look, calling it one for “the history books.”

But aside from the new hairstyle, which perfectly framed her face, some netizens grew concerned as they realized there were bandaids on Park Bom’s collarbones.

The singer had previously shared other pictures of her using bandaids in the same location, including one from ten weeks ago, causing netizens to worry that she could be dealing with a serious health issue.

Although Park Bom has since deleted the post, her representative told Star News on March 7, “[The bandages] are not because she has wounds or scars on her collarbones. Thereโ€™s nothing wrong with her collarbones. Theyโ€™re patches of โ€˜pressure tape.โ€™ She uses pressure tapes with small metal balls on her collarbones to massage/drain her lymph nodes.โ€
