Sunmi has always been known for her slim figure since her Wonder Girls days, so she surprised fans by revealing she tried gaining a few pounds for her solo debut with "24 Hours".


SEE ALSO: Sunmi kicks off her solo debut with '24 Hours' MV


During a recent interview, Sunmi revealed, "While I was promoting as a member of the Wonder Girls, I once weighed below 40 kg (~88 lbs.). I normally went back and forth in the 41 kg (~90 lbs.) range, but to carry out my sexy concept and performance, I gained enough weight to be 47 kg (~103 lbs.)."


She also went on to say something that most people would be envious of. She explained, "When I was at my heaviest, I was 52 kg (~114 lbs).This may sound absurd but while I was promoting when I was young, I was so skinny that people would tell me to gain weight sometimes."


After seeing her MV for "24 Hours", do you think her hard work paid off?

she looks great! as long as she is healthy and is strong enough to perform to her full potential then that's what she should aim to maintain. Love the song and concept :)

Man...I feel fat. When I saw here in the video, she still looked pretty skinny to me. How tall is she? 5' 3"?

she is still really skinny, im younger than her and shorter than her but i weight more than her ( the doc said my weight is right for my age and height), im still a teen but she is a grown woman already, this look unhealthy.  Hope she gain more weight and be healthier

Korea actually has different height to weight ratio... I don't know what it is but that's what my two Korean foreign friends told me... It's weird. But I agree. :3

I'm heavier than her even when she was at her heaviest. It's good to see her gaining weight though as opposed to losing it, I'm so sick and tired of seeing little sticks dance on stage.
