Weight and body image is probably the most important thing for idols. But hearing that you’re often hungry, straight from the horses mouth, is quite upsetting.
“I am 167cm tall, and I am not allowed to weigh over 48kg.”
I couldn’t hack it! How are you supposed to practice for hours on end, and after schedules with an empty stomach? There’s no fuel for your body!
During the broadcast of “Happy Together 3,” Seolhyun 설현 admitted that it’s a struggle, especially during her trainee days.
Seolhyun 설현 said that she loves food, and her traineee days were most difficult, as she had to record the food she ate, and her weight; which meant she would always be hungry.
Shockingly, she revealed that there were definitely times where she wouldn’t keep a note of her food intake. Instead she would feel guilty, and eat what she wanted, whilst crying.
The outcome would be weight gain, with the consequence of getting in trouble.
“Dieting was so hard for me; I often considered whether I should quit being in a girl group.”
When you physical aren’t allowed to be over a certain weight? That’s insane. It makes you wonder how much more of idols’ lives are controlled…
