Netizens are calling out Ki Hee Hyun for lying about her childhood. 

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. 

What do you think about netizens accusation against Ki Hee Hyun's description of her childhood?

But one of the comments in the article did say that she was pretty in highschool and she said that she was paid higher on her part-time job so basically she was already in high school at that time. But nevertheless yearbook pictures are always like that, they don't really show the real beauty of a person.

Her elementary school pics aren't that bad. Her hair style looks like "helmet head" but she may have been prettier "in-person" (elementary/high school pics tend to be fairly awful). Did any of these Netizens know or heard about her when she was in elementary school? Or lived in the same area? If they didn't, then how would any of these Netizens know whether she was lying or not? Netizens are always making assumptions without any facts to back them up.

I think she lie, and personally in my opinion I don't think she is  pretty now

Whether she was prompted to say those things on air, or if she said them out of her own free will, this is basically a lesson in Celeb 101: Everything you say and do will be under scrutiny to the very last detail, especially now that we have the internet.

"I guess her hometown didn't have that many people...." Damn,why you do her like that   ?....that wasn't just a shot,that was a clip....

Well that was awkward...

Omg guys you know she was promoted to say this. You already KNOW everything that's going to be talked about on these shows is prearranged well in advance. And you know contractually idols have next to no say on what sort of 'character' they're marketed as.

So the program and her agency promote her as a narcissist and a fibber?

pink_oracle bangeryun94 Saturday, November 19, 2016

Yep, I never said they were good at it.

No matter how attractive somebody might be it feels weird to hear them gass themselves so much, especially a rookie

Alexgp Saturday, November 19, 2016

Im sorry but how big of an egotistical person can you be to say those things, regardless wether theyr'e true or not?!. She's such a fierce performer, dont become an airhead! be humble! i hate it when koreans do this kind of shit, such an artifical, shallow society! theres sooo much more in life than FAKE beauty people! be yourselves!

No offence but like none of the DIA members are really that pretty, esp before plastic surgery. Girls i know u guys are receiving recognition now for u looks post-surgery especially Chaeyeon but pls dont stick ur heads up ur asses too far up.

fxcx09 Saturday, November 19, 2016

This girl either has zero shame & would do anything for the media to pay attention to her (i mean since Chaeyeon is the only one considerably know in DIA) or she's absolutely narcissistic - which are both bad options.
