It was the 36-year-old’s face. It was puffy and a far cry from what it used to look like.
D-Nation, her agency, later released a statement to address rumours that the singer had undergone plastic surgery. It said the star was going through tough times and was stressed.
The agency said that it had assured her to be comfortable until the release of her next album. It seems Park Bom was going through some weight gain, which could be seen on her face too. The singer has stopped work for now.
A source from the label told Star News that allegations that Park Bom had gone under the knife were not true. The singer had been working on a new album and was taking care of herself to present a new look.
The source added that Park Bom was asked to perform at the Grand Bell Awards. Although she was planning to take a hiatus from all public appearances until her comeback, she decided to perform because she had never done so at an event like the Grand Bell Awards.

It is reported that last year was a busy year for her and her stamina was low because she had been performing as a solo artiste. She has since been resting and eating well and her health has improved.
The entertainment industry is strict when it comes to the looks of artistes and this can be detrimental for them.
