No one wants to see their idol with an eye injury or infection, but there’s no denying that these 10 stars looked surprisingly good when they had to wear eyepatches.
1. Baekhyun (EXO)
At the Lotte Family Festival in October 2016, EXO’s Baekhyun had a stye on his right eye and had to wear an eyepatch to cover it.
2. Wendy (Red Velvet)
During promotions for “Power Up”, Red Velvet’s Wendy unfortunately suffered a small eye injury which led to her wearing an eyepatch between performances.
Ever the cheesy sweetheart, Wendy joked that she had to wear the eyepatch because she’d received too many loving gazes from fans. She even customised the eyepatch with red thread to show her love.
3. Moonbyul (MAMAMOO)
Back in July 2018, MAMAMOO’s Moonbyul wore an eyepatch while her stye was healing.
4. Jinsoul (LOONA)
When LOONA’s Jinsoul attended the HERA SS2019 show at Seoul Fashion Week, she wore an eyepatch, which fans presumed was due to an eye infection.
The funny part is that Jinsoul had already worn an eyepatch before—for the “Sweet Crazy Love” music video.
5. SinB (GFRIEND)
Back in February 2016, GFRIEND’s SinB also had to wear an eyepatch. News outlets reported that the starlet had an eye infection at the time.
6. Yoojung (Weki Meki)
Weki Meki’s Yoojung has needed to wear an eyepatch several times. When she donned one at the 2017 Seoul Music Awards, she revealed she had a stye.
When she needed an eyepatch during “Crush” promotions in November 2018, she customized it with cute hearts.
7. Yeonwoo (MOMOLAND)
No one knows why MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo needed this eyepatch in April 2018, but it didn’t stop her from giving a great performance.
8. Gyuri (fromis_9)
While promoting “Love RumPumPum” in July 2017, fromis_9’s Gyuri was seen on stage with an eyepatch.
Coincidentally, she also wore an eyepatch like Krystal’s while performing f(x)’s “Red Light” in 2018.
9. Jane (MOMOLAND)
Yeonwoo isn’t the only MOMOLAND who’s worn an eyepatch. Jane needed one in June 2019 too.
10. Jinyoung (CIX)
While CIX’s Jinyoung was still on Produce 101, he needed to wear an eyepatch during one of his performances.
