Despite being only 148 cm (4’10”), her BMI of 15.6 is still considered underweight as it is under a BMI of 18.5.

Many netizens found her post not only disturbing, but also viewed it as a potential danger to young or impressionable fans.

Even considering her short height, many netizens agreed that the number on the scale is still quite low.

  • “She’s so short… but she’s also thin”
  • “I rubbed my eyes and looked again”
    • “Me too.. I knew her height was short but I didn’t think she would be this skinny”
  • “She’s very short”
  • “What?”
  • “Woah”
  • “No but a height of 148cm and weighing 34kg is too skinny..”

However, many fans are not blaming Yeojin as she has once revealed her troublesome past related to dieting and weight loss stemming from the harsh rules of Blockberry Creative (BBC) during her predebut period.

Though nobody knows the truth except for Yeojin, fans wish the best for her and hope she can continue to stay healthy.
