    The problem is probably with her veins not her skin color.

    The amount of hate is unreal. 1) She was probably answering a question about her pale skin since Korea loves pale skin so much and they constantly want to know about her beauty. 2) It IS totally likely that she got bullied she probably isn't BSing this. Why? Yes, pale is korea's beauty standard. However, that's acknowledged by older people, she said "kids made fun of her" so she's probably talking about her elementary days. Kids don't have the strict beauty standards of grownups, they don't know that "pale skin is good" etc etc, they're not taught that by society yet (bless their innocence) so they probably thought that the visible veins were disturbing or strange since they're not used to seeing it. If they don't focus on skin, they focus on something else and it happened to be her veins. If you don't know her past don't just call her out, unless it's proven otherwise why would she lie? For fame or media play? Please, she's already making enough and super popular. Gosh, haters and their inferiority complex, they think anybody pretty has to be ugly on the inside? Why? To satisfy themselves and convince themselves that they're better in some aspect or something? Leaving hate to an unknown person should answer that involuntarily....

    y'all be complaining about her bringing up these things but I bet the interviewers/hosts asked a question or said something that prompted her to say that.. same goes with other idols.

    when i was younger i wasnt really pale like albino pale BUT i had think skin so you could see all my veins that even my doctors where concerned. Even as ive become darker or in the summer you can still see my veins i just have thin skin. Her veins being seen has nothing to do with being pale but having thin skin. Many people are alabaster white but have thick skin and no visible veins.
