Earlier today, Lee Hyori’s photos of her sagging love handles were a hot topic on the Web. It showed the pop diva with some added weight around her waist line, an image we’ve never seen during her decade-long career. Fans expressed their surprise—and disappointment—in seeing the supposed “Sexy Queen” of K-Pop lose her sexy bodyline, as she is quickly approaching her 33rd birthday.

However, Lee Hyori didn’t seem to be deterred by the photos and rumors of her aging body. She retweeted a message by her fan that said, “Hyori unni….what happened….” and wrote, “It’s only natural to sag when you get old, no need to get too surprised~^^.”

She added, “I’m taking it as a compliment that the reporters found my love handles to be the only flaw from yesterday’s ‘You & I.’ Hehehe A girl with a flu laughing senselessly in bed.”

Netizens who saw the tweets commented, “Of course, Hyori unni always maintains her cool,” “Hope you feel better soon,” and “Best in responding through Twitter.”
