  1. Starvation is not a diet it’s a eating disorder. Period. No one should have allowed this at big hit but they did so they are sick too. I’m so upset about this. jungkook deserves better! I hope there are more people like me who can pressure South Korea to change their unattainable beauty standards. This is just wrong!!!!

  2. This makes me very sad and worried. I watched the video clip and the other members barely react beyond a curious “really?”. I hope someone in Jungkook’s life is addressing this. These kinds of ‘diets’ are unfortunately common in the idol industry and Korea as a whole. Knowing Korea, many fans young and old will be inspired by JK’s ‘determination and hard work’ and copy his diet rather than see it for what it is, a short term weight loss solution that can lead to long term physical damage and yo-yo-ing weight if repeated. Not to mention the evidence of an unhealthy mentality around food and body image.
