This song came out a few years ago but it still boggles my mind.

Who thought this was okay?! Who choreographed this, wrote these lyrics, put this through the marketing team that was like 'yup this will be a hit,' WHO DIDN'T THINK THIS WAS WRONG?!

Hyomin from T-ARA released a solo track called Nice Body and its disgusting.

Hyomin's Part:

All girls want to show some skin
All girls go on a diet at least once
All girls want to be loved
A prince of my dreams will appear for sure
(Not eating what I want to) I will be strong
(I will endure through the pain) I will become pretty
I will fall in love, I will show everyone
I will change
My body is a nice nice body
Long legs, sexy waist
(Give me love, give me love, give me love)
My body is a nice nice body
Everyone is shocked, everyone falls for me

Loco's Rap:

You’re like those Western girls who work out
Everyone looks like plain bamboo trees compared to you
I’m already imagining how I can accidentally run into you
I’m a growing tree of dreams
All guys want a girl like this
All guys like pretty girls
All guys think dirty thoughts at least once
I want that to be me, I want that

Now let's look at the music video.

It starts off with a girl binge eating donuts when a magical glitter donut appears. Of course, she scarfs it down and begins to change into a beautiful, "nice body" aka Hyomin's body.

On Hyomin's leotards throughout the MV we see a bunch of numbers.

At first I thought they were just they sporty style and meant to look like a jersey, but actually its her MEASUREMENTS.
34 at the bust, 24 at the waist, and 36 at the hips are actually inches of her body and lets not forget that she used a measuring tape as a PROP for her dance in the chorus. Really guys?

The music video is clearly saying that the right photo is more beautiful than the left.

Anyone who says that this song is innocent or not saying anything bad is WRONG. You might say that Loco was forced into rapping it or something but still - wtf Kpop.

Was anyone else super disappointed by this?

I think its wrong
I didn't like it only because of the tune but now that u told us about this, I do feel very disturbed. maybe she's also trying to show off.
Wow that's horrible and gross I agree wtf kpop
being unhealthily fat is so much better then actually being at a good and healthy weight aka thin
Super late comment but since I'm just seeing this card. Lol I'm not going to say that it's innocent or has nothing to do with one's figure, but I honestly don't get the vibe that it's intentionally trying to put anyone down. The way they go about it isn't the best but the song is true, especially considering what's generally known about the Korean culture. I'm not saying it's right but being slim is super important there, especially if you're in the public eye. I actually got the feeling that it's kind of poking fun at the ideals only because it's like "I have a hot body now, like you wanted. I bet you want me now, don't you?" If she really had anything to do with the lyrics writing process, I don't know anything about her or her group, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out that she was ons of many who had to lose a certain amount of weight as a qualifier of sorts to train, debut, etc. In my opinion, it would have been better had they done the video a different way but I also feel like the girl eating the donuts and how she looks at the barbie at the end says something about how unrealistic it kind of is to go so far so such measurements. A different mv could have probably really taken this far, whether it have been done inna more sad, sending a message kind of way, or a fun, appreciating all body types kind of way.
