Netizens argue Kim Se Jung doesn't look as 'pretty' as her 'Produce 101' days

After pointing angry fingers at Jellyfish Entertainment for putting Kim Se Jung in Gugudan, netizens are at it again. This time, they're complaining about Jellyfish's poor management of Kim Se Jung's style, hair, and makeup.


SEE ALSO: Gugudan's Kim Se Jung is multifaceted in her new 'Hi-Mart' CF!

It seems netizens are discontent with the uneven bangs stylists have given Kim Se Jung for Gugudan's "A Girl Like Me" promotions. They referred to her bangs as "if a mouse chewed away at her hair", "like a flat-iron malfunction", and more, arguing that if anyone else had gone with such a hairstyle, they would have looked horrible. According to some comments, Kim Se Jung only managed to pull off the hairstyle because of her pretty facial features. 











Many also added on that Kim Se Jung looked "prettier" during her 'Produce 101' days, rocking better-looking bangs, a variety of moods, etc. She allegedly looked her "best" during her "Irony" performance on the survival show. 










Additional comments included, "Can't see her 'Produce 101' visuals at all these days", "She seems like she's suffering from some constant obsession to smile even when she doesn't have to. Maybe that's why people say her smiles look forced. I feel bad for her because she tries to smile so hard", "The hair is weird too. but the clothes don't match her either. Pastel tones might not be her thing", "Normally people get prettier from camera-massaging, but the more she comes out on broadcasts, the worse she's getting. If she went with a natural look like during 'Produce 101', she would be very pretty, so why do they do this...", and more. 


What do you think about the netizens' arguments?

    Judging from the pictures I think her face might have gotten slightly rounder/puffier/less lean or tight than before, or it might just be the pictures' fault. Stress, lack of sleep/rest, and weight gain can cause that. Although her face doesn't look badly bloated at all, but just maybe less lean, because her face looks very lean from the IOI pics. And I still think she's just as cute as before and I can hardly see any difference. The hairstyle isn't bad at all; she looks great in that hair.

    No matter what Jellyfish does with Sejeong, they're still going to get flack about it. Pushing Sejeong to the front isn't going to help. It isn't helping DIA, it isn't helping CLC (101 effect, not IOI effect), it won't help gugudan either. Jellyfish is trying to even out the disproportionate popularity between the members-- they let Sejeong shine in her own way-- she's had a solo, she's going onto variety shows, and after all these comments-- you'll probably get your wish and she'll be pushed to the front, but it won't help either. 'Wonderland,' objectively, should have fit with Korean taste (cute, easygoing) but it didn't. So the company tried 'A Girl Like Me' to turn them into concept-dols, like VIXX, but it isn't working either. What are they supposed to do? They can't please everyone. Furthermore, gugudan isn't meant to be Sejeong ft. the rest. It never was. This group has been in the works for a while now. The fault of Jelpi isn't putting Sejeong into a 'flop' group (they're not flopping) or giving her ugly bangs (she's still cute)-- they should have put all/most of gugudan into PD101 like Pledis and Fantagio to prevent this large shift in popularity (in my mind, Mimi, Hyeyeon and Soyee would have done well on the show). Nayoung and Mina aren't as popular as Sejeong, but they have their own fanbases too. It's the remaining 6 that are taking the brunt of all this when they don't deserve it.

    This is a wrong statement tho. Jelpi never pushed Sejeong to start with (her appearance on variety shows was set during her IOI days, so she has the responsibility to continue, and her solo was more of a special single rather than an actual debut). You can see how Jelpi is trying to push other members too; Hana is one of biggest examples. And if you see Gugudan on variety shows, Nayoung, Mimi, Soyee, Hana are usually the ones that are sent. Just because Sejeong has a greater popularity doesn't mean that Jelpi is pushing her. She is the centre of attention because she is the main vocal so of course, she is going to stand in the middle more and have more parts. And if you look at it, Jelpi only put Nayoung, Mina and Sejeong on the show because it's one member of each line (visual, dance, vocal). And even by putting almost the whole group, Pledis and Fantagio are not benefiting at all because still Yoojung, Doyeon, Pinky, Nayoung are the ones who will receive more attention as well in their respective groups.

    I rarely agree with "netizens" but in the case of Sejeong they make a good argument. The way Jellyfish has managed and presented Sejeong - their most popular and bankable bluechip star -  is incomprehensible except in one scenario... that they are doing it intentionally. It might be a case of Jellyfish trying to raise the profile of the entire group by downgrading Sejeong's impact. Or it could be that Jellyfish is trying to contain, or prevent, internal group tensions caused by Sejeong's overwhelming popularity. Or maybe Jellyfish are just incompetent morons. Whatever it is, they are pissing away the advantages Sejeong's popularity provides them, and it isn't helping the group. All they are doing is sabotaging the group further, and idiotically kneecapping Sejeong's potential as a profitable solo star.
