K-Pop idols are out there saying a lot of things on the daily. If you ever take anything away from them though, then please let it be these 10 truths about food. They’re speaking the truth and the truth only — and man, we simply could not agree more. Bookmark this list and hold it near and dear to your heart the next time you find yourself wondering whether you should indulge or not.
1. BTS’s Suga
Suga said, “Calories are units to measure the deliciousness of a menu.” That being said, the math comes easy. The higher the calories, the better the taste. It’s no wonder some of the tastiest munchies come with really big numbers.
2. GFRIEND’s Eunha
Eunha said, “There is no need for a burger to have veggies. If I wanted veggies, I’d order a sandwich.” So yes, it’s fine to order that massive meat-lover style burger. If you wanted veggies, you’d order a sandwich, right?
3. TVXQ’s Changmin
After a long day of working in the kitchen Changmin (also known as MAX) said as he passed out, “I was happier when I was a customer.” Point to be taken? Don’t be afraid to order take-out or even splurge on a delivery. Sometimes the kitchen needs to be empty.
4. NU’EST’s Baekho
Upon explaining why he drinks his coffee black, Baekho said, “I’d rather consume those calories from food, not coffee.” Solid logic, right? If both a Frappuccino and a slice of pizza is going to result in a pound… Go for the carbs.
5. AOA’s Seolhyun
If there is anything Seolhyun cannot accept, that is interruption. When her manager suggested that she eats later (rather than rushing to finish her food then and there), Seolhyun said, “I can’t stop this flow.” Ah. The flow. Nothing can stop that flow.
6. Park Jihoon
Park Jihoon said, “For lunch, let’s have KBBQ.” There is a profound message behind this brief-but-brilliant statement: There is no such thing as the right time to KBBQ. Anytime, all the time is KBBQ time!
7. Lovelyz’s Sujeong
Sujeong said, “Breathing makes me hungry.” Alas, has anyone heard anything more true to this day? So remember, if there comes a time that eating must be justified — breathing causes hunger. So to keep breathing, food is absolutely essential. (Nod.)
8. Park Hyung Sik
Park Hyung Sik said, “If the food is good, it can be expensive. But if it isn’t good and expensive? It needs to be smacked.” Oh and he is serious about this — as his expression tells. Don’t overpay for mediocre food. Just smack it.
9. VIXX’s Ravi
Ravi said, “Keeping carbs and meat away could save your life… but if that’s what it takes for longevity, I don’t want it.” Sounds very much like carpe diem, doesn’t it? You only live once. Eat the carbs.
10. Yoon Jisung
Finally, Yoon Jisung said, “Anything you eat past 12AM counts toward the next day, so it isn’t fattening.” Aww yeah! Come on, this is genius stuff. If a day resets, so does the calorie count. That’s only fair.
