Ladies' Code's Sojung opened up about how her unhealthy diets eventually led to Anorexia. 


On the July 12 airing of 'Girl Spirit', Sojung talked about the struggles she had with her weight in the past, saying, "I lost 8-9kg (~18- 20lbs) before debut, but became Anorexic. My face looked like a skull, and my body felt as if it would break apart. People pitied me, but now I eat well and exercise."

She also revealed her lightest weight, "My weight when I had Anorexia was 38kg (~84lbs)."

    I'm glad it gets talked about at all, but the way she talks about her recovery (and how other idols talk about it when they are willing to admit to having anorexia) is an unrealistic and inaccurate representation of anorexia as a mental health disorder. It isn't simply over-dieting, and you can't fix it by just eating healthy again. You need therapy to get over anorexia or even just to manage it, and when that aspect of recovery is avoided time and again it just perpetuates the stigma of mental health treatment.

    Glad she opened up about this, it might help other people in that situation. And even more glad that she's now okay.
