The picture was posted to Jessi's Instagram account as a story. There was no accompanying caption that led to fans worrying over the star's well-being. According to the IV bag featured in the picture, the star is speculated to have got Glucose 5% Intravenous Infusion.

She has a huge fan following, and they reacted to the picture with concern for Jessie. They wondered if the star was okay as she had been headed to hospitals quite frequently.
Many also wondered if this was a sign of Jessie overworking. Fans speculated that it was common for people within the K-Pop industry to take IV for vitamin intake, among other reasons. It was also suggested that agencies overworked their artists to an extent where they needed IV to recharge and recuperate before continuing activities.
Some fans also pointed out that the IV itself was not harmful, but these artists were forced to sit through IV bags because of starvation and exhaustion. Many worried that Jessie might be going through a tough time due to her activities. Followers also hoped the star was not harming her health.
A few also expressed that they felt guilty for wanting Jessi to release a new album. They did not wish to see the star put herself in trouble while fulfilling her fans' wishes.
