IVE's Liz just became cuter and netizens and K-pop fans absolutely love the change!
Just recently, reports surfaced regarding IVE Liz's alleged weight gain. Mor specifically, the allegations began when the IVE main vocalist started promotions for their new song, "Love Dive," as Liz supposedly had chubbier cheeks.
Following the release of "Love Dive," IVE performed on KBS2's "Music Bank" April 15 episode. The K-pop girl group's performance went on to go viral for IVE's choreography and powerful presence.
Adding to that, IVE's visuals also garnered positive comments from DIVEs (the fandom name of IVE). Notably, the IVE member that stood out was none other than Liz. This is mainly due to the supposed changes in her visuals, four months after debuting as a member of Starship Entertainment's IVE.
Netizens and K-pop fans talked about IVE Liz's supposed weight gain. Although some K-pop idols who gain weight usually garner negative comments from netizens due to body standards in the K-pop industry, the K-pop idol was able to collect praise instead.
As per fans of the K-pop idol, Liz's chubby cheeks made her look younger and even cuter. Furthermore, Liz's fair skin and big bright eyes also supplemented her charm. Even though the IVE member garnered chubbier cheeks, Liz's iconic dimple seems to be more prominent.
This is not only a great compliment to IVE's Liz but a great step toward body positivity in the K-pop industry as it is known how strict the standards are in terms of visuals in K-pop.
