Jang Won Young's constant busy schedule sparks concern

AKP STAFF

In the fast-paced world of K-pop, success and popularity sometimes come at a cost. 

One such cost that has recently sparked concerns among fans is the relentless schedule of IVE's Jang Won Young.

Ever since her debut with IZ*ONE, Jang Won Young has solidified her position as one of the most recognizable faces in the K-pop industry. With her mesmerizing beauty and stage presence, Jang Won Young has captured the hearts of her fans at just the young age of 19.

Thanks to her immense popularity, Jang Won Young has constantly been at the center of the entertainment industry with various promotions and advertisement appearances. 

The life of a K-pop idol is known for its intensity, but it seems Jang Won Young's schedule is at another level with various music promotions, brand endorsements, show appearances, advertisement filming, and even fan sign events.

Fans have become increasingly concerned about Jang Won Young's well-being as her hectic schedule has constantly garnered attention. This topic resurfaced when a fan pointed out Jang Won Young's killer schedule overseas.

One netizen wrote, "People are saying Jang Won Young's schedule is hell" in a popular online community. In the post, one fan expressed concerns, saying, "Please let the girl rest. Are they crazy?? She's gonna be an MC in the Philippines on the 14th and then the MC for the KBS Song festival on the 15th, going to two fan sign events in the suburbs on the 16th, then she's going to China on the 18th. Isn't this crazy?"

The 14th: In the Philippines to MC the 2023 Asia Artist Awards.
The 15th: MC'ing for the KBS Song Festival.
The 16th: Two fan sign events scheduled in the suburbs.
The 18th: Going to China.

The netizen who shared this comment also wrote, "It seems like it's been like this for a few years. If it's to this extent, then she can only rest in between destinations when she's traveling."


Other netizens commented, "I'm more impressed how she hasn't canceled one schedule even if she's so busy with schedules like that," "Jang Won Young fighting," "I think she was this busy last year too," "I think the fans want her to rest because she's going overseas and then the next day, doing the MC for the song festival and then going to a fan sign event. Fans want the label to not schedule the fan sign event like this at least," "I get that she's busy because you should row the boat when the tides are high and she's popular. But she's also human so she must be tired if she doesn't get much sleep. It's really hard mentally too," "Liz once said that Jang Won Young has her individual schedule but also practices choreography every day but she never expressed that she's tired."


Translation: "Despite having so many (personal) schedules and daily dance practices, she doesn't show any signs of having a difficult time... I've never heard Jang Won Young say that she's having a hard time."

She doesn't show her difficulties, but like every human she has them, but I think EVERY IVE member has them. I don't think she's the kind of person to complain, as some might think. She's mature for her age, and I respect her a lot. You can always say that posing for photos is easy and not tiring, but don't forget that she's an idol, not a model. Everyone's consumed with jealousy, but who'd be up at this hour doing all the work an idol in general does, no one!

let's be real at this rate Wonyoung can practically retire and never have to work another day in her life by the time she is 25 with how much work she gets. Just think of the idols in the past who used to be super popular and probably wouldn't mind an insane schedule vs the trickle of opportunities they get now.
