In an interview with Urban Zakapa member Jo Hyun Ah on her YouTube show Jo Hyun Ah’s Thursday Night, the two discussed how they feel compelled to take care of their visuals because of the demanding nature of their jobs as celebrities. Yeri shared that sometimes she finds a picture of herself and notices that she gained weight.

Sometimes when I haven’t taken care of myself and I see myself on the Internet, I [gasp] a lot. ‘Ah! I really gained a lot of weight!’

Jo Hyun Ah added details, saying that one must open their mouth slightly because if one cheeses, the pictures don’t look good. Yeri agreed that big smiles can cause double chins in pictures. That’s why Yeri has a separate smile for the cameras—a very subtle one. 

I had a separate facial expression for when I smiled.
