Jeongyeon's recent shocking return came after months of being on and off the public's eyes. It all started last year when JYP entertainment confirmed she was suffering from psychological anxiety, requiring thorough medical assistance and treatment.

The K-pop idol herself confirmed the news in one of her online broadcasts, temporarily saying goodbye to the fandom.

A video of her performing with the TWICE members also went viral last year. The clip in question showed the idol, who was obviously in pain. In her V Live event, she explained that the injury led her to lose more fan cams before disclosing she was diagnosed with a herniated disc in her neck.

She shredded weight for their Taste of Love comeback before showing weight gain again during the Alcohol Free promotion. She continued to have more visible extra fats in her recent appearance.

Fans only hope that people will not take it as an opportunity to shame Jeongyeon. Instead of humiliating the TWICE member, fans urged everyone to share empathy with her.
