Jeongyeon has suffered all kinds of attacks due to her weight gain, and ONCE has tried to protect her against these atrocities. In the past few months, TWICE member Jeongyeon spoke publicly about her struggles with managing panic and anxiety. It is even known that these problems forced her to pause her musical career and thus be able to focus on her health.
After months of being out of it, the K-Pop idol joined the group for their new comeback ‘SCIENTIST‘. With the recent appearance of her, fans of the interpreters of ‘The Feels’, also known by the name of ONCE, urged everyone not to body shame the idol for her new image and asked them to support her no matter what.
“It seems healthy to me that idols show their real image and not the same as always, companies promote a type of malnutrition campaign forcing idols to be extremely thin regardless of their health and knowing that there are fans who imitate this kind of thing”, It was one of the most prominent comments on social networks.

According to information circulating on the internet, Jeongyeon felt a numbness in her neck during the ‘More & More‘ era promotions, which led to a herniated disc. In August 2020, she participated in a digital concert sitting on a chair and in October of that same year she announced that she was absent.
