“Hyojung-ah, I think you need to lose weight, you look like an ahjumma ‘auntie or older woman.’”
Hyojung said she took the comment very personally and worked hard using a harsh diet to lose over 6 kg (13 lb) in 3 months, she says after that she was able to make her debut in her group. When asked about how she exercises now, she explained that she does Pilates four times a week and if she doesn’t do that, she usually goes biking or to the gym to lift weights.
Fans were heartbroken to hear the news and to hear about how difficult it must be for idol trainees to make their debut and how harsh their diets have to be in order for them to make the cut. The Kpop industry is definitely not an easy place to be.
