Red Velvet‘s Wendy recently sat down and discussed her concerns about weight.
K-pop idols have to deal with a lot of stress due to the strict beauty standards within the industry. These standards include maintaining a slim body, and applies to both male and female idols.
While maintaining weight comes naturally to many idols, others struggle to do so and have to resort to extreme diets. But while dieting and maintaining weight has definitely become one of the top obstacles for idols, Wendy believes it shouldn’t be.
On a recent talk show segment regarding the guests’ current concerns, the topic of weight was brought up into the discussion. Wendy responded to show host Han Hye Jeon‘s concerns, by saying ” I feel that I don’t think things such as weight are that important. I think being healthy is sufficient. Also, I think it’s really pretty when women are confident.”
