BoA has been the subject of criticism online recently regarding what netizens claim to be a ostensible change in the singer’s appearance, which first began when she made an appearance on the K-drama Marry My Husband.

Such comments resurfaced again when she posted a TikTok on March 27 of herself dancing to the chorus of her latest single, ‘Emptiness’. The video’s comment section is dominated by remarks on her appearance, with some writing that they “almost did not recognise BoA till I read the username”.

Several days after the TikTok was uploaded, BoA herself took to her Instagram Stories to address the comments. “If I don’t take care of myself, you criticise me for not taking care of myself. When I do, you criticise me all the same,” BoA wrote, as translationed by Koreaboo

“If I put on a little bit of weight because you keep saying I lost too much and that I need to gain a little, then you criticise me for being ‘a pig’. I don’t know what you all look like, but don’t live like that. Stop wasting your time,” she added. “Also, I’m sorry, but I’m BoA.”
