Song Yuqi (宋雨琦,송우기), a member of the K-pop girl group (G)I-DLE turned heads recently with her latest posting on her socials. She uploaded photos of herself all glammed up in a matching denim outfit.
Yuqi also took some time to respond to some comments left by Neverlands (fandom name) on Weibo. One particular fan appeared to air their concern over the idol’s “revealing” outfits as seen in her social media post.
The Weibo user told Yuqi, “Baby (Baobao), the third and 5th pics, don’t they look like you’re having nip slip? Be careful, there are plenty of perverts out there.” The fan suggested that she should be more mindful of what she wears and also what she posts to avoid drawing the attention of people with no good intentions.
Surprisingly, Yuqi didn’t stay silent and directly issued her response to the fan’s concerns about her outfit. “Nope, this is prejudice, baby. When a girl wears a short skirt, it doesn’t necessarily mean that she’s overexposing herself. It also doesn’t mean that if she’s revealing a little skin, you should think that way,” the “My Bag” hit-maker replied to the netizen.
The 22-year-old then continued by saying, “I just thought I looked good (in the outfit), and I’m satisfied with that, that’s all. You don’t have to take what or how others view you to heart. We just wear pretty clothes and put on pretty makeup for ourselves to look good and confident. Just be yourself and be happy.”
Yuqi immediately became a trending topic on social media not long after she responded to the fan. Many commended the Beijing-born vocalist for her empowering response. Some of the highlighted comments include:
- “Thank you! Finally someone says it I’m glad she stood up for herself.”
- “(G)I-DLE really is out there speaking facts all the time.”
- “Yuqi, and also (fellow member) Shuhua, both are not afraid of telling it to your face. Sassy!”
- “(The outfit) is revealing, and people will get perverted thoughts, but she doesn’t have to be bothered about it. You can’t control what they will think about her pics, she’s comfortable with her outfits and confident with herself, and that’s all that matters.”
Not to mention, others also expressed their hopes to see more idols being able to speak their minds, as well as putting those toxic fans in place.
