K-Pop idol Jessi has always been known for her outspoken and outgoing personality that has never really adhered to the rules and expectations of traditional Korean society.
Since debuting, Jessi has always showcased her own distinct personality and ensures that she doesn’t change who she is to fit in with the beauty standards of K-Pop.
In particular, many have criticized what Jessi wears as many have described her looks as “provocative.” In an interview, the idol even explained once that comments got very malicious as she explained that netizens would say a lot of mean things, including, “They say I walk around with barely any clothes on.”
Yet, it hasn’t stopped Jessi from being proud of the outfits she wears and showcasing her dazzling visuals and proportions.
However, it seems like it isn’t just netizens that aren’t always on board with Jessi’s choice of clothing, and another person who Jessi has shared might feel the same is P NATION CEO PSY!
Jessi recently appeared in a video on STUDIO WAFFLE and the idol spoke about everything from how she reacts to comments about plastic surgery, her career, and much more.
In particular, the host explained to Jessi that when it comes to her taste in clothes and what she wears, the idol likes to “expose” her body. Jessi agreed and didn’t seem too shocked when the host added, “But PSY doesn’t like that.”
Of course, being Jessi, she had the best reaction to this and just said, “I don’t really care.”
When the host added that he heard that PSY nags her a lot about it, Jessi had the most iconic comeback, especially after it was pointed out that at concerts, PSY has sometimes worn even more revealing outfits.
Exactly. That’s my point. He once dressed like Beyoncé and wore thongs.
If that wasn’t sassy enough, Jessi then explained that it wasn’t just PSY who had a tendency at their agency to wear revealing clothing and she wasn’t actually the worst. In particular, she spoke about her fellow P NATION artists.
In our agency, there are many people who like to expose their bodies. There’s HyunA. Then there’s DAWN. Why is he always shirtless? I see him all the time, but does he have to expose this part.
Jessi then had the perfect words of advice for anyone who ever feels insecure about the way they choose to dress. The idol explained, “Everybody has their own style. We can’t say anything about that.” She even shared that she wanted to embrace her body while she felt so confident.
I’m an entertainer and I’ve aged now. While I have this body, to a certain extent.
Yet, it isn’t the first time Jessi’s had the most iconic reaction when someone points out that PSY isn’t always as happy with her choice of fashion.
In 2021, Jessi made an appearance on SNL Korea. During the interview, Shin Dong Yeob asked Jessi whether she listens to PSY whenever he tells her to do things, considering he is the CEO of her company. As expected, Jessi had the sassiest answer expected and particularly spoke about her CEO’s reaction to her clothing choices.
No. For example, whenever I dress too revealing, PSY would tell me to cover myself up a bit more, but I would say ‘no.’
Yet, despite these comments, it’s important to remember how supportive PSY has been to Jessi.
During one interview, Jessi even explained how PSY helped her through a slump when she wanted to give up music in an interview with Rolling Stone Korea. Jessi explained that he was the one person who “somehow made me snap out of it.”
Although PSY might not always like how Jessi dresses, he has always given her freedom and does not stop her from showcasing her personality. It shows just how close they are and proves that Jessi has a strong mentality that many people could benefit from.
Despite the negative comments and haters, Jessi always ensures she feels confident and doesn’t let anyone let her feel inferior.
