On September 21, chef Baek Jong Won, SHINee's Onew, DIA's Jung Chae Yeon, and more attended the press conference for tvN's new travel/cooking variety show, 'Eat Sleep Eat'.

The producer of the show explained the reason they wanted to have Onew and Jung Chae Yeon in the cast, saying, "I was looking for nice kids like Onew and Jung Chae Yeon. I wanted to film this with kids who are too busy to eat well." 

Chef Baek Jon Won added, "Onew and Jung Chae Yeon ate anything and everything I made. Of course, I cook well. But because they ate my cooking so well, I had to think hard about the next meal. The managers who came with them were being bossy by being too concerned about what they were eating. I felt bad for them."

The chef also went on to talk about how he succeeded in making both of his co-stars gain a bit of weight, sharing, "I actually got them to gain some weight. When I saw them again they were skinny again, so it made my heart cry. It made me want to take them in and make them gain weight again. It's too bad that they're idols. They can eat anything, but because they're watching their figures they weren't able to eat well." 

It sounds like the chef really has a soft spot for Onew and Jung Chae Yeon! You can catch the cast's adventures in Kudat, Malaysia beginning September 23 at 9:15 PM KST!

in addition both Onew and Chaeyeon have those soft features that kinda makes you want to protect them forever so I can relate with him for wanting to take them in. I don't know about Onew but as a fan of Chaeyeon ever since her debut in DIA I can see she's lost a LOT of weight since then. I know it's important for idols to remain stick thin so as to satisfy 'beauty standards' but it's still sad to see they can't eat well and not worry about the consequences of just enjoying a meal
