Ki Hee Hyun from DIA made an appearance on KBS' 'Happy Together' on November 17 and talked about how she was famous in her hometown since her elementary school days because of her beauty.
On the show, she explained in detail how she would be paid more at her part-time job because she was pretty, and how her beauty drew customers to a restaurant she worked at.
However, since the episode aired, netizens are posting photos from Ki Hee Hyun's elementary school yearbook, saying that the idol is clearly lying.
Here are the photos netizens have posted:
They are writing comments like the following:
"I think she was kidding to be funny on the show..."
"I live in the same town as her and nobody knew who she was until Produce 101..."
"I guess her hometown didn't have that many people..."
"She was not pretty in elementary school but in high school, she was."
Netizens are also bringing up another female idol who was recently called a 'liar' -- YooA from Oh My Girl. YooA drew some negative attention earlier this year she misspoke about her education. Her agency corrected the record, but netizens claim that she also lied about other things, calling her a chronic liar.
