Chaeryeong just debuted with her group ITZY and they’ve already accomplished so much. For example, their debut song “Dalla Dalla” earned the group the fastest ever music show win for a girl group, winning M! Countdown just nine days after their debut.
Despite the clear talent and accomplishments of each member, some netizens have started to insult Chaeryeong due to her appearance. The comments contain so much vitriol that her own mother has felt it necessary to speak up in defence of her daughter.
Her mother spoke very honestly and pleaded with the netizens to stop being so harsh on her daughter.
“It’s very easy for you to say hurtful things about Chaeryoung. She is a kid that just debuted, she is a person I treasure more than anyone. Even if you guys don’t find her pretty, you don’t have to leave hurtful comments on every article and video without hesitation. If she did anything that is bad then it’s fair to judge her. However, all you guys are doing is pointing at the appearance of a 19-year-old girl. Everyone has their own charms and everyone has their own preferences. It’s so sad and hurtful to see my innocent and precious daughter get scolded for her appearance. Chaeryeong is a kind and well-mannered child. Please look after her, you don’t have to be nice to her but please don’t be hurtful. Please”.
