On March 22, the female idol became a hot topic on the web forum, Nate Pann, but for a negative reason.

On Instagram, the female star uploaded a dance cover challenge of Pharrell Williams feat. Miley Cyrus’s “Doctor (Work It Out).”

Aside from her impressive dance line, she particularly drew attention for her unique styling, wearing a fancy ensemble of black crop top and shorts trimmed with sequins, which reminded fans of the 90s.

She completed the retro transformation by showcasing her perm hair and makeup which is very far from the idol “aegyo-sal” styling.

The “Secret Garden” singer also posted her photos posing with her recent styling.

After upload, Mimi gained divided opinions from MIRACLEs (fandom), K-netz especially criticizing her decision to choose a style close to American styling.

Fans felt that Mimi suits the Korean style better and by choosing the other one, she is making herself stand out among Oh My Girl in a negative way.

Some MIRACLEs were also frustrated that Mimi was doing everything on her own accord, not minding how Oh My Girl would be affected by her actions and decisions.

As a result, some fans claimed that they were giving up on her and would only support the other members moving forward.

  • “I’m a fan but I already gave up on her. What she wants versus what the fans like are too different.”
  • “It’s hard to overlook it.”
  • “I was okay with her tanning, but why on earth would you style yourself like that? It really makes her look like some old pop singer.”
  • “There are some people who say that the styling itself is not that good, but actually, I don’t think the styling itself is that bad, but that styling just doesn’t suit Mimi.”

  • “Mimi should have gone instead of Jiho.”
  • “I used to have a strong for the team, but I was losing it. She was so obsessed with her individuality.”
  • “I don’t care anymore. Whatever.”
  • “No matter what she does, Oh My Girl fans are not interested anymore, anyway.”
  • “She definitely has a strong personality. She should just debut as a soloist like Hwasa.”

  • “Are you happy? I just want you to be happy.”
  • “Isn’t she too pretty?”
  • “Mimi, please continue doing what you want.”
  • “Ah you’re so attractive, this is crazy.”
