There are those who also pointed out that the change may not be caused by surgery but just temporary eyelid tape commonly used by Asian girls to achieve a similar look.
“Looks more like tape than surgery to me. (I could be wrong though),” wrote one in AllKPop’s comments section.

Other comments, however, were more supportive of the adorable idol regardless of any change she chooses to undergo.
“I personally think she looks better with her natural ones, but it ain’t my body so you do you Yoojin :)” said a fan.
“Omg no I really don’t like this 🙁 but she can do anything she wants with herself just my personal opinion,” commented another.
