These days, one major trend in Korea is having a “nice body,” and celebrities are at the center.
Many celebrities work hard to keep their body in great shape, with many sharing their exercise routines and diet regimens on broadcasts. Others simply show off the results of their exercise and diet plans through their comeback performances and photos. The members of SISTAR recently talked about their own health regimens, with Dasom explaining the most extreme diet regimen she went through. Member Soyou also explained her sad story of extreme weight loss and dieting.
Other Korean celebrities, such as TWICE‘s Jihyo and Lovelyz‘s Mijoo have been recognized for their transformations.
For some though, weigh loss and dieting transformations can be too severe. In the case of EXID‘s Hani, fans and netizens alike pleaded with her to end her unhealthy dieting habits.
A recent post on the Korean community board site Pann highlighted the condition of IU’s body. With the title, “How on earth did IU become so slim?,” the post highlights IU’s extremely thin legs through a single picture. The picture was posted with the caption, “I would never have it…I envy you.”
Many netizens commented that IU’s legs may actually be too thin, to the point where they are not envious of them anymore.
