She revealed, "One of the popular boys in school said that you're not a woman if you're not curvy and taller than 170cm (5'7")." Dara added that she was shocked and lost confidence after hearing the remark.
The idol continued, "I often wear revealing clothes when I go overseas but I'm discouraged from wearing such outfits in Korea. People criticize my body a lot." Some of the negative comments toward Dara called her an "elementary figure" and stated, "I don't see her as a woman at all."
Hearing this, Honey Lee pointed out how Korean society focuses too heavily on appearances and revealed, "You get a lot of comments even when you gain a little bit of weight. People have called me a pig."
