In particular, the OP posted a recent photo of the K-pop idol-turned-actress who made a TV appearance in MBC’s “I Live Alone.”

On this day, the star introduced her daily life after living independently four to five years ago. After waking up, Seolhyun appeared to the camera bare-faced, and it truly stunned viewers how beautiful she was even without makeup.

Aside from her impressive facial features, Seolhyun also caught the eye with her perfect ratio, reminding fans how she used to be called “wannabe body” back then.

In the post then, the OP brought back the most legendary GIFs of Seolhyun back in 2015 & 2016, which were her “glory” years.

Even though almost 10 years had passed, nothing really changed in her beauty, and her visuals are as youthful and natural as when she was 20 years old. Seeing her, you wouldn’t even believe that she’s going to be 30 next year!

In the comments, K-netizens agreed that her beauty is unchanging, and her looks always have this refreshing aura on par with fourth and fifth-gen idols who are in their teens.

“I always thought Seolhyun was so fxcking pretty ever since. Her eyes were so pretty, her nose was sharp, her lips were so pretty, her body was perfect in everything from the proportions, and her bronze skin was so attractive. I thought she was really a celebrity, and every time an ad for her came out, I kept watching…

She filmed a commercial for some kind of cosmetics this time, and I gasped when I saw her in a black dress because she was so pretty. I hope she appears on TV more often.”

K-Netizens Recalled Seolhyun’s Popularity Before AOA Bullying Controversy

While praising her relentless beauty, Seolhyun also attracted massive attention for her fame which eventually went down after she was embroiled in a bullying issue.

As a short background, the entertainment scene was turned upside down when former AOA Kwon Mina confessed in 2020 that she left and attempted to take her own life after being bullied by Jimin for 10 years.

As the said abuse happened when AOA was still active, Kwon also revealed the names of the members who stood out and didn’t help her. As Seolhyun is known for being Jimin’s best friend, she received major backlash for being a bystander and since then, her fame has gone down the drain.

While she returned to the industry as an actress, Seolhyun never recovered her popularity and K-netz showed their regrets and pity.
