Hong Jin Young shared the shocking story behind her severe diet. 


At the showcase for her new single "Loves Me, Loves Me Not", Hong Jin Young stated, "Dieting is a women's lifelong homework. I'm a carnivore. I really love meat but you have to go on a diet to live as a female celebrity."

She then shared why she decided to go on a severe diet, and said, "Recently, after a Lunar Year special broadcasted, I received a message on Instagram telling me to take care of my body. So I wrote on Instagram, 'I will go on a diet', and people wrote, 'Good thinking. The comments telling you you're pretty are all lies. Seriously, lose some weight'. I was so shocked."


Hong Jin Young continued, "I was hurt and I started to starve myself. I ate 1 banana and drank 1 milk for a day and ate some meat 2 days later because I was so hungry. I go on a diet like that and I'm trying hard. I'll be slimmer next week than this week. I'm only going to leave my bones."

    the people who wrote those comments are probably ugly and over weight. its sad that she focused on the few idiotic comments about how "fat" she was when im sure there were many positive ones praising how pretty she really is. shes always been really pretty and she was never at point in her career (as long as ive known her) where she needed to go on a diet especially one as drastic as that.

    I seriously doubt these idols don't know the health risks of this "dieting". Pressure from both netizens and companies are huge, and sometimes, losing weight the long way just doesn't cut it for them. Starving and eating as little as possible is a temporary fast way to lose weight and it's scary that probably every idol has to go through this.That's the way the entertainment side works. It's not the way it should work, but unfortunately, this is part of the dark side of the entertainment world.

    If you get like PROTEIN DEFICIENCY (meat = protein), you can get like SKIN RASHES and all kind of odd problems. Difficult to know exactly what she is eating it. But what she SAYS is NOT so good an idea for DIET at all. And I am NOT any sort of FOOD expert either.

    My understanding, is *smaller portions* of a BALANCED DIET, coupled with EXERCISE to 'burn off' some calories, is really the best way to go. Probably others know even BETTER than me on this DIET issue.

    Really, TV Show HOSTS should like *correct* these types of *bogus* (wrong) DIET advise statements by some GUEST on their show. You can say like "Try this at your own risk. But it is medically recommended that a balanced diet with SMALLER PORTIONS is the best strategy." ... I suppose it seems like an 'attack' on the GUEST somewhat. But you wonder what is 'okay' to say it.

    Oh my, if you follow that stupid dangerous diet you'll gain even more weight when you'll get back to healthier eating habit. Starvation is the worst you can do to lose weight.  There are so many women out there who are absolutely gorgeous with  slightly curvy body. I don't mean overweight ( because it's unhealthy ) but you can have meat on your bones and be fabulous. She shouldn't listent to those comment. Actually nobody should listen to those stupid comment. And nobody should destroy their body with unhealthy diet that wont work. Eat clean and healthy, workout and you'll have an amazing body and good health.
