However, on March 26, a forum was made because of a “severely edited” photo of Karina, which gained criticism from fans. The picture was taken from a fansite and appears to have obvious attributes of over-editing.
In the photo, Karina’s facial features seemed to be much bigger, which contradicts her naturally small face. The editing was evident in her eyes, head structure, lips, and nose.

MYs also stated that idols already look amazing without any editing. They also stated they look “superior” to the average person in their selfies, and can visually overwhelm the viewers if the photos were to be edited.
“It’s the same with celebrities’ selcas and those preview pictures. They all look way prettier without any editing.”
“They already look superior to the average person so once they start editing their pictures, it’s just too much so they always end up looking prettier or handsomer naturally?”
“Definitely. I know some fansites who keep editing their final pics, the idol ended up not even looking like himself. Just why, what’s the need of it?”

During the discussion, MYs left a good note by praising Karina for her hairstyles, as well as her small face, and innocent visuals.
“I thought that Karina wouldn’t suit bangs but why does she look so good and pretty with them.”
“Her face is small and her features are detailed so that’s why she’ll end up looking pretty in anything.”
“She got a lot more innocent recently.”

“Some fansites over-edit their pics to the point of idols sometimes looking like alien ngl.”
