In the comments, netizens were deep in thought regarding Renjun’s visual change and even claimed his looks resembled a Super Junior member.

  • “No but what did he do that his face changed this much? Just what happened?”
  • “He looks like a SuJu member, not an NCT member.”
  • “If it had been filler, he would have had enough time to melt them, so it must have been due to something else.”
  • “He seriously looks older than a 40-year-old SuJu member. He looks like JUSTHIS, I thought it was some talented rapper.” (picture for reference).
  • “Where did that youthful flower boy go?”

Meanwhile, netters also argued that Renjun’s unrecognizable face was due to his cakey makeup and hairstyle. However, some considered factors such as bloating, lighting, and an underlying health condition.

Others came to Renjun’s defense, backing him up from the unnecessary critique and harsh remarks. Here’s how they reacted:

  • “It’s 90 percent the choppy hair and cakey makeup.”
  • “Maybe bad camera angle? But I think he gained weight.”
  • “I don’t usually believe in going after the coordis and the stylists, but that makeup artist needs to be fired on the spot for all of them. The hair is doing him no favors either.”
  • “I think it’s just bloating and bad makeup.”
  • “The makeup is ghostly white foundation along with inky black hair that is poorly styled. So altogether it is not flattering.”
  • “I have a feeling it’s something medical related.”
  • “I don’t think it’s fillers because even his fingers look swollen. Looks like an underlying health condition honestly, edema maybe.”
  • “Let’s spread kindness in the comment section.”
  • “Give the guy a break!”

In other news, Renjun appeared on a livestream, which was discussed by netizens in an online post on February 12.

Based on the clips uploaded, the idol admitted that he gained weight on his face. Renjun even mentioned that it looked swollen during his promotions in China.

I gained some fat on my face lately. When I went to China to promote, it was really swollen,” Renjun shared. “Although it was fine when I looked at myself in the waiting room, I looked so fat when I saw myself in the photos.”

He continued, “After that, I had to film for a comeback, so I decided to lose weight unconditionally, so I fasted and only ate salad.”

Why are you fasting?” a fan asked him in the comments.

Renjun responded, “I hate seeing my appearance reflected in the camera.”
