Her mindset is everything.
IVE‘s Jang Wonyoung is regarded as one of K-Pop’s “it girls” because of her massive popularity. This popularity has led her to become to face of many products and brands.
Unfortunately, with the popularity Wonyoung has achieved at a young age comes unwarranted criticisms. In the past, the IVE member has received hate comments about several things, from ridiculous claims about her Miu Miu Miu sponsorship being fake…
..to accusations that she was an IU hater and even criticism about how she eats.

It’s easy to imagine how these could wear a person down, but Wonyoung previously went viral for sharing that fans give her strength during hard times.
it’s a bit unusual for wonyoung to go on pm late at night and she talked about gaining strength from us 🙁 she said if someone is giving her a hard time, she can just say “i have dives, you’re jealous right?” and that “everything will be okay since i have you” pic.twitter.com/PffraAcOkD

I have an Unnie
I bet you’re jealous
— Wonyoung’s messages to fans
Wonyoung’s impressive mentality was proven again recently when she gave her true feelings about receiving criticism.
IVE were the latest artists to appear on the Clamp docuseries “K-POP Generation,” a program set to look at the past and present of K-Pop.
The members freely discussed many things regarding their personal lives and career as K-Pop idols. During one of Wonyoung’s individual portions, the idol talked about self-love and how it plays into receiving criticism.
I tend to love myself
Reprimand… Why don’t you just give yourself love because you can get it from people even when you don’t want it? pic.twitter.com/O82Wd0ih0f

I tend to love myself. Criticism…People can give it to you even when you don’t want it, so how about you give yourself nothing but love.
Fans have praised her mature mindset and wished they treated criticism the same way.
she’s so classy… actually what’s more irritating than seeing the person u hate smiling and continue living their life happily.. like just doing this she called them miserable without even saying anything https://t.co/Dqu5IK8neF
