Lee Hi’s Slimmer Face the Result of Continued Dieting? Netizens Don’t Think So

YG Entertainment‘s “Monster Rookie” Lee Hi delighted audiences with her live performance of “Rose,” which quickly shot up to the number 1 spot within an hour of release earlier this year! 

Lee Hi performed on December 29 at “2013 SBS Gayo Daejun,” which was broadcast live. Despite being only 17 years old, Lee Hi looked sophisticated and mature as she sung about being a heartbreaker and feeling jaded about love. The “K-Pop Star” audition program first season runner-up especially drew attention for her slimmer face and figure since signing on with YG Entertainment. 

But more than her stellar live performance, Lee Hi’s slimmer face received greater attention and criticism. 

Netizens voiced doubt and concern, leaving comments such as, “Are you saying this is Lee Hi???” “How could you outfit her in roses just because her song title is ‘Rose’?” “Who was her stylist?” “Normally, I’d say you’d have to look at her face without any makeup on, but this looks like she got plastic surgery,” “It seems that Lee Hi tried to lose weight in order to get prettier, but she doesn’t need to.. she’s pretty as she is!” “Her jaw seems different” and “How can that actually be the result of dieting?”
