Netizens have come across IZ*ONE leader Kwon Eun Bi's middle school graduation photo!
Upon seeing the photo, netizens of course had mixed reactions. At first glance, the idol is much younger with a bit more baby fat, causing some to comment, "Isn't it someone with the same name as her? It's a completely different person", "I don't see the face of the current Kwon Eun Bi anywhere..", "It's a different person, right?", "I'm suddenly forgetting what Kwon Eun Bi looks like..", and such.
But after placing the middle school photo side by side with the current Kwon Eun Bi's image, it became clearer that the childhood photo is in fact, of the IZ*ONE leader. Others said lightheartedly, "I mean, middle school grad photos are literally everyone's worst photos ever so", "It's really hard to look good in grad photos", "She lost a lot of weight and it looks like she got her teeth straightened", "If this is her in middle school before losing all the baby fat, I can totally accept", "She lost weight and got her eyes done, but her nose is exactly the same", and more.
Some also pointed out that the middle school graduation photo above very closely resembles an old elementary school photo of Kwon Eun Bi, well-known among fans for the narrative accompanying it ("Eun Bi was a very active kid").
And others added on that even during her former girl group days, Kwon Eun Bi's styling, makeup, and more contributed to how she looked rather different from her current image.
Other comments included, "I'm like that too, I got double eyelid surgery and lost a ton of weight from my school days so middle school friends don't recognize me", "She looks more closer to the audition clip they showed briefly at the end of 'Produce'", "The shape of her lips is the same", "Her eyelid surgery went really well, where did she get them done", "That's a unique hairstyle choice, Eun Bi", "It's okay Eun Bi, you're gorgeous now", "Eun Bi gives off a unique feel when she wears lenses", etc.
