South Korean actress Seo Ye Ji has been hogging headlines lately, thanks to her role as a super stylish children's book author in It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. The K-drama also stars Kim Soo Hyun, who plays a caregiver at a psychiatric ward.
In the latest episode, there was a scene which showed Ye Ji's character at the hospital dressed in an all-pink two-piece outfit that accentuated her tiny, tiny waist. Viewers clearly couldn't get over what they saw as they immediately went online to react to the 30-year-old actress' "ant waist", a term that K-netizens use to describe a very tiny waistline.
“Can all her organs fit in there? No way! Her waist is smaller than my thigh!” commented one netizen.
While some netizens were envious of her svelte figure, there were also those who felt that the 1.69m-tall Ye Ji’s tiny waist might be the result of digital retouching. Truth be told, it probably all boils down to genetics. According to some netizens, Ye Ji's mum and older sister, who both worked as air stewardesses, are equally slim.
Then there were the concerns about her physical well-being. “She's too skinny now. She could stand to gain some weight,” wrote one netizen.
Ye Ji's waist isn't the only body part that has gotten people talking. Soo Hyun created a stir in the drama's third episode when he bared his chiseled abs.
In that scene, Ye Ji's character bumps into a shirtless Soo Hyun in the hospital's changing room. When she reaches out to touch his abs (can you blame her?), Soo Hyun immediately grabs her and spins her around.
Of course many netizens took to Twitter to leave thirsty comments about the 32-year-old actor's abs after the ep aired.
“Kim Soo Hyun, how long have you been working out?” a fan asked, while another hilariously tweeted: “Search history: Kim Soo Hyun abs, shirtless, wet look.
