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.

    She sure is brave enough to talk about her anorexia... And, i'm sure it's pretty common in the kpop industry seeing how thin/skinny some idols are!! But nobody would admit this "disease"!! Anyway, i'm happy she got out of this and shares her experience! :D

    I'm really glad Polaris got her some help(at least post-accident). You don't usually see companies be concerned with their idols not eating enough/having emotional difficulties.

    I wish more celebrities would talk about this, because she's definitely not the only one who has gone through this. Crazy diets and losing tons of weight through them is NOT healthy. I'm glad Sojung was able to recover and is now healthy.
