Amid recent criticism over the harmful effects of excessive admiration for skinny bodies, such as “idol body” and “idol diet”, on young people, especially teenagers, many people raised concern over the negative influence of Kim Chae-won and Sakura’s remarks on their teenage fans.

Several netizens commented, “I don’t know why people ask idols about their waist sizes on entertainment programs”, “It may have a bad influence on teenagers”, “Don’t ask idols about their waist sizes on shows”, “The two wouldn’t have revealed it if the broadcasters hadn’t asked in the first place”, “They shouldn’t have mentioned the number”, “I can’t believe people are still asking such a question these days”, etc.

Meanwhile, LE SSERAFIM is promoting their comeback song “EASY”.
