Chorong and Namjoo guested on the October 3 airing of 'Bae Sung Jae's Ten' and talked about A Pink's comeback!

During the talk, Chorong and Namjoo shared how they went on a diet for the group's long-awaited comeback in a year and 2 months. However, Chorong claimed that some members' dieting efforts failed to show, and explained, "Bomi became so much prettier after losing 7kg (~15.4lbs). The other members lost a lot of weight too, but you can't really tell because Bomi became so pretty. That's why we decided to jut remain silent [about our diets]."

Later, the two members also shared A Pink's secret to maintaining their figures, with, "When we're in the waiting room, we play small games like seeing who can hold their hand on top of ice for the longest, who can go the longest without using slang, etc. Then we exercise by making the loser maintain the 'core position' as the penalty."

Right Bomi looks stunning this comeback but come on Chrong you are still one of the prettiest girls in KPoP.

"Bomi became so much prettier after loosing 7 kg," she was obviously complimenting her band mate but it can have such a devastating effect on so many people. She is unintentionaly implying Bomi wasn't that pretty when she was heavier wich some kid and young girl might think means " girls you are not pretty if you're not skinny," wich could litteraly bring lot of young girl to anorexia. It's really dangerous.

Well. it doesn't mean that she said bomi is not pretty in the first place

Some people could misunderstand

As long as we don't start seeing all of her bones sticking out, I'm fine with it. I find it very unattractive when someone's ribs are sticking out and when I can see every single bumps of their spinal cord  It makes me very uncomfortable seeing that. That's just my opinion tho. some people might find that visually attractive.

lucyb9 Kurapikaaa Tuesday, October 4, 2016

well, it can be a body type as well...i am 171 cm, and with 58 kg, my bones was stricking out. Even my chest bone and my back bone. It's about bone structure

Nothing wrong with losing weight you guys should chill she looks healthy and active so what is the problem?  There is none.

Keepinitkreal Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Yes girl you should always root your girlfriends into anorexia...

melon Tuesday, October 4, 2016

She didn't look fat before so given how much she's lost. How much does she actually weight now? Kinda concerning

star123987 Tuesday, October 4, 2016

losing that much weight when you weren't even overweight to begin with is NOT cute or pretty and sends out such a negative message about self-confidence and beauty to young girls who look up to them... sigh I'm Korean, but I hate how superficial and judgmental Koreans are. It's disgusting whenever I hear these stories or news about people being shamed for just looking a certain way or weighing a certain weight and how these idols, who should know how big of an influence they have in the lives of youths (they're their idols!), think it's okay to talk about how proud they are of how much weight they lost by starving themselves or eating a single type of food (diversity in foods is very important for a nutritious diet) or barely eating at all... I know it's rough in all countries, but I don't think there's a country out there who prioritizes looks more than Korea (you're even bullied and casted out by your classmates for being a few shades darker).

F U. bomi is way cuter now which is why she finally has a bf.

JiminLee7 smokeee Tuesday, October 4, 2016

bomi has a bf?? who?

RAS33 JiminLee7 Tuesday, October 4, 2016

she doesn't she is just goingg to be a part of WGM now

JiminLee7 RAS33 Tuesday, October 4, 2016

yes i already knew about that, that's why i'm confused when he/she (smokeee) said that she has a bf. thank you for explaining

star123987 smokeee Tuesday, October 4, 2016

fuck you bitch. when did i ever bash Bomi? I like Apink, I was stating my opinion on how wrong it is for celebs to create an idea among society (celebs dedicate a lot in what younger generations see as beautiful) that risking your health is an okay thing to do just to be seen as handsome or pretty in the eyes of others. When what all should matter is that YOU are healthy and that YOU love yourself for who you are. But considering how simplistic and ignorant your comment, I'm assuming you don't have the capacity to comprehend what I am saying do you? You really think Bomi is cuter after hurting her health? Imagine the emotional pain she had to go through in order to decide that she had to lose fucking 15 pounds when she was at a completely health weight? Imagine the physical toll it took on her body to lose such a huge amount of weight in such a short period of time? And doing so in very nutritionally unethical ways? Do you REALLY think that's cute? And I don't know what this boyfriend talk is, but if her boyfriend really did decide to go out with her because of how she looks, that's very saddening and I hope she breaks up with him soon. We deserve to be loved by others who see the beauty within us. Fuck you and your superficialness. It's people like you that people don't feel confident in their own skin and think they have to look a certain way to be accepted.

As a person who has done a decent amount of research in fitness, I don't see the problem in weight loss as long as there is no starving involved. Most of those hyped up diets are bullshit. The body has to have carbs or proteins that's how the body was hard-wired to function. I do not see any problem with Bomi losing 7 kg at all AS LONG AS SHE DID NOT STARVE HERSELF. We very well may never find out how she loses her weight, but if it's the traditional idol method, it may be as we fear (starving). Which results in binge eating and overall unhealthiness. Please do not look down on weight loss. It can be good for your health if done in the CORRECT way. What I'm 100% sure of is that Xiumin had starved himself at some point to get those abs that are so adored by exo fans(detrimental to his health). He even shared his diet/exercise plan which included exercise but a meager amount of carbohydrates. Taking myself as an example, I weighed 225 pounds(not overweight/obese, I had a considerable amount of muscle mass). Thanks to a balanced diet along with exercise I managed to drop from 215 to 195 pounds off just portioning my meals better than I was for the first 10 lbs (weight loss was faster and healthier).

i think star meant it was bad because she was already at a low weight and going underweight would hv been the result of sych a massive lose. They didn't say it was bad but bad because she was already skinny and didn't need to loose the weight.

Kurapikaaa star123987 Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Hey since you seem familiar with Korean culture, maybe you could answer my question. I'm not sure if you are familiar or not with american women clothing size but if so, at which size would someone be considered as "fat" in Korea ? I am 5'2 and 120 lbs and I got a feeling that I would be considered fat over there even tho my weight is well within the normal range for my height.

Lelurker Kurapikaaa Tuesday, October 4, 2016

120 lbs is ~54kg which is considered on the higher end of the scale So yes you'd be considered fat in Korea. Usually idols try to stay under 50 kg which is 110 lbs. Bomi's current weight loss puts her at just about 47 kg assuming her weight didn't change from march 2016 until she decided to lose weight.

Lelurker Tuesday, October 4, 2016

I definitely don't agree with those standards and I think myself that rather than losing weight idols should be focused on reducing the BF% (if too high of course) and if not, put on a bit of muscle to look better. It takes either steroids or long and consistent training time for any female to become bulky as a result of weightlifting.

star123987 Lelurker Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Okay you know what, I barely skimmed through your message because when I first started reading it it was obvious that you did not even try to comprehend what I was trying to say. I don't want to waste my time trying to "properly" read your message and reply because if you didn't get it the first TWO times, I don't know if you'll get it this time, but it sounds like she/he is saying that it's okay to lose weight as long as it's done in nutritionally ethical ways (eating right and exercising)? Which is why i clearly said that it's wrong when idols promote such weight lose in nutritionally UNETHICAL ways. Whatever specific method Bomi used to lose weight, does not matter at all in this case. Because the youth won't contemplate that at all. All they will see is that her previous healthy weight is considered ugly and fat and if they want to be pretty, they better drop down to 100 lb (i'm assuming she's around there since she stated earlier this year she was around 120lb), despite that being underweight for someone her height. And keep in mind that you look "fatter" on camera than you do off. Bomi is even skinnier than she looks on camera. Which is completely dangerous! And considering how maybe only less than 5-10% of idols say that they lost weight by a healthy diet + exercising, it can be assumed that the youth in korea do associate starvation or 1-food diets as a good way to lose weight (because that's what their idols do. Idols dictate a lot in how Korean society perceives as beautiful and why plastic surgery has become such a huge industry there). It's very concerning because I go to Korea a lot and I have friends there and many of them do consider weighing 95-105lb at 163/164cm is pretty. You can't look at body image how it is associated in your country in terms of Korea. Korean youth are highly self-conscious people who always want and need to look good in society. It literally is a competition that society pressures them in competing in unless they want to end up jobless (companies in Korea factor in how attractive you do) or bullied by society (like I said, even if you're tan, you will be bullied in school. Whether it's namecalling, making you into the classroom loner, or inflicting physical harm towards you). And experiencing in firsthand in Korea, it's not any better when you constantly have ads surrounding you wherever you go to get plastic surgery (1 out of 3 women in Korea get PS), when people make fun of you/insult you right in front of your face (koreans don't really have the concept of politeness down quite yet), and when a good percentage of the women are noticeably underweight and are constantly dolled up with makeup caked on their face (so it makes you feel like you have to look beautiful all the time as well). THEREFORE, when we know that Bomi lost 15 pounds when she was already at a COMPLETELY healthy weight, it's the message that's put out there that's concerning, especially when her member comments how pretty she's become for doing so. You are overestimating the minds of Korean youth who only know how to follow what society tells them or just the minds of youth in general who usually only see things in black-and-white. Their mindsets are totally different and you won't be able to fully comprehend it if you yourself have not experienced Korean culture and society. But then again, I'm talking about Koreans in GENERAL, because obviously there are many out there who see what is wrong like I do.

finally! someone who can actually read and understand what i'm saying lolol

star123987 Kurapikaaa Tuesday, October 4, 2016

hi there! I don't live in Korea but I do every visit family and friends so I can't say I know Korean culture like the back of my hand, but I am pretty well or okay informed about it in a personal point of view. So anyways, generally speaking, I would say that if you told someone you were 120lb at 5'2'' they'd think you are fat? or maybe not fat but chubby or average? (chubby to girls and fat to guys). But realistically speaking, if you go to korea you won't see a bunch of kpop idol looking people walking around haha. Koreans tend to be pretty skinny, but there are many many people who just look average, a little chubby, or a lot, etc. So unless you have some noticeable fat showing (like your tummy sticking out, thick legs, etc.), people wouldn't consider you fat or point it out (which you aren't! your weight sounds perfect for your height ^^). They might be a little surprised when they hear the numbers, but just by looks, i don't think they'd say you are fat or chubby. I'm 5'3''/5'4'' and 118lb and I was actually in Korea this past summer, and people would comment about how petite I am (well maybe because I hide my jiggliness under my clothes well HAHA). But if I told them my numbers, I would expect them to be at least a little surprised. It's actually very complicated if you look at it realistically... since people's opinions differ but if you want to look at it in general terms concerning Korean society, I think you can safely say we'd be considered more on the chubby side.

star123987 Kurapikaaa Tuesday, October 4, 2016

oh but clothing size wise... XL & XXL are nearly impossible to find in Korea (you have to go to Itaewon to try to find such sizes, as Itaewon is mostly run by foreigners). And L size clothing isn't what America would consider L. L in Korea is more M in America. But usually, clothing stores in Korea are "one size fits all"
