Rumours over receiving lip fillers
A recent appearance at the Incheon International Airport on July 5, 2019, has garnered attention on HyunA's new look.
This prompted speculation of her getting lip fillers, which made her lips look fuller than before.
HyunA has also posted a few photos of her new look on her Instagram:
In an Instagram post on July 6, 2019, HyunA wrote a post on Instagram addressing the public scrutiny of her lips.
The image she posted showed that she topped the search engine of Naver, a popular web portal in Korea, and "HyunA's lips" was the sixth most searched keywords on the chart.
Along with the image, HyunA clarified that she overdid her lip outline as a change to her usual style and she dismissed hateful remarks posted by netizens.
Here's a translation of the caption provided by one of the commenters:
"Not doing eye makeup, overdoing my lip outline is all my doing, light or heavy makeup, I like it when every time it's different. Every day I get opportunities to transform myself for my schedules and I like this. But I don't like hateful comments written as if they're the most obvious things."
