Wonder Girls’ Yoobin to netizens: You can bite my supposedly fat ass

Filed under: celebrities, gender equality, music, schadenfreude moment — extrakorea @ 6:19 am

Not too long ago, netizens made comments about Yoobin (of the girl group the Wonder Girls), specifically, that they thought that she had gained too much weight.

Initially, she wrote on her Cyworld page, “Please stop calling me fat,” then deleted her comments. (In case you don’t know, Cyworld is social networking website, somewhat similar to MySpace and Facebook.)

Now she’s written again, this time telling the netizens that if they think her ass is fat, they can bite it. Okay, she phased it much more politely and eloquently than I did.

“Regarding my body, I think I am still putting on weight. There are many people who like me and care about me, and I had received many comments of advice and concern. Everyone is curious about my condition. Even though I’m not perfect, I am sufficiently satisfied with my body.”

“Even though I like the trend of being skinny these days, I prefer to have a suitable and healthy body. I am also controlling my diet and doing exercises.“

“During the ‘Nobody’ days, actually [I didn’t take good care of myself], and [I was out-of-shape]. But [by performing concerts] now, I have [lost] some weight and I feel healthy. For people who are looking at me and [feel] that I am plump and unfit, I am feeling healthy and I like my looks now a lot.“

In a country where netizen vitriol has driven celebrities to suicide, I’m glad to see her standing up to these pimply-faced, sponging-off-their-parents losers.
