At the 44th Blue Dragon Film Awards, Yoona rocked a soft pink dress with slicked-back hair that pinned the focus on her facial features. While she looked gorgeous nonetheless, some fans found the whole look to be underwhelming.

When Yoona’s official Instagram account shared a picture of the idol at the event, the comment section saw a spike in criticism from fans demanding a change in the idol’s team.

Both Korean and international fans pleaded with the management, claiming that while the fan base understands Yoona’s long-running and close relationship with the hair and makeup team, the flaws have “become difficult to overlook” and the fans are “sick and tired of excusing the hair and makeup team” for all the disappointment.

Some fans were specific to point out that the Yoona’s hair, makeup, and outfits have all been underwhelming since 2021.

The hair, makeup, and the outfit were all underwhelming. As her fans, we understand that Yoona has been with her current team for a long time, and so she has grown close to them and trusts them enough to keep working with them. But we’re starting to think that the team is sabotaging all the chances that Yoona can shine at her brightest. It has become difficult for us to overlook. Whenever Yoona books a schedule, we grow concerned about what she’ll look like. And we’re sick and tired of all the disappointment. We have close to no expectations now… Please know that we’re her fans. We love her and we want the best for her. If someone at her management is reading this, PLEASE. Hear us out and give another team a chance to work with Yoona.
