Recently, on an online community forum appeared a series of pictures featuring female stars’ abused feet from kill heels. These photos capture bare feet of female idol stars like IU, 4minute‘s Hyun Ah, SISTAR‘s Bora, Kara‘s Goo Ha Ra, and others. 

Most female stars, including many idols, wear extremely high heels to make their legs look longer and leaner. They wear these heels almost constantly, including the times when they are dancing and singing onstage. Even for actresses, they often wear extreme heels for photo shoots and movies, or drama filmings. As a result, their feet are often swollen and have many blisters on the toes. Moreover, some stars are captured with pain-relief bandages and patches on their calves to relieve pain and stress from their tired muscles.  

Netizens commented, “They are still so young and look what happened to their toes,” “It must hurt so much,” and “I guess your job is to look tall, skinny, and pretty so that just comes with it. But still…Cheer up!”
