WM Entertainment announced a few months ago that member JinE of Oh My Girl would be going on hiatus to recover from anorexia.

The other day, the agency updated on her condition through the official fan cafe, writing, "Member JinE, about whom a lot of fans are concerned, is currently dedicated to recovering her health at her hometown where her parents are residing.  JinE is dedicated to her treatment and is asking for a lot of support so that she can stand before you all with a healthy image once again."

Regarding the absence of JinE's birthday in the girls' 2017 season's greeting, the agency said, "We apologize for making the fans who purchased [the season's greeting] uncomfortable because we failed to be attentive.  We are making additional stickers for the missing portions and the written errors and plan to ship them out."

Also, back on December 11, the girls were shooting a CF for a chicken brand and, during a live internet broadcast, said, "Member JinE is not in good health, so she is resting at her parents' home.  She's diligently making a recovery."

Anorexia can be so deadly. I pray she'll conquer it

Even though she's not a key player in the group,  I don't want to loose anyone in Oh My Girl.

Makes you wonder how many other idols have anorexia but don't ask for help, or their agencies don't let them take a break to get help.

anorexia isn't the only eating disorder. IU admitted once on Hello Counselor that she used to suffer from bulimia in the past. And then there's other eating disorders besides anorexia and bulimia. The sad thing is that many companies encourage them by having idols eat very little.

it is really terrible, but its also like the whole situation of being a kpop idol and the korean culture and its demands is also part of it seems kind of inescapable (?) idk. its like you want to do something and want the companies to do something, but even then, because of society its become something that is almost impossible to change. there will always be that standard of idols and actors being skinny or looking a certain way :( ...kk sorry just ranting i guess :P

true though.. people complain about their agency forcing idols to diet & loose weight, but when there's a chubby idol, people call them ugly and stuff. Same like plastic surgery..

Anorexia isn't just starving yourself, it's a mental illness. Look at Ailee. for her comebacks, she'll lose 6-7 kg. But if you see her eating during Immortal song, and see her stuffing herself with pastries, you'll know she doesn't have an eating disorder. It's the same with depression. Everyone can feel sad sometimes. But that doesn't mean everyone has a depression. All idols diet from time to time, but it doesn't mean they're anorexic or bulimic. The difference is, is that there is no attention for people with anorexia in SK, but they are even encouraged to lose weight. South Korea needs to pay way more attention to mental illnesses, they have one of the highest suicide ratings in the world

Don't rush first

So now people can stop talking BS about her being removed from the group and let her recover in peace.

Lovelyz also had a member who was out of her group's promotions for some time, I think its Jisoo, Seems like OMG too. I remember fx's Amber also once had to stop promotions due to injury for a long period of time, i think it was ard the same time when Victoria was doing WGM with Nickhun, there was even rumors that Amber might not be rejoining fx, but thankfully she did came back to the group, Hopefully JinE can re-join OMG for their next comeback in 2017.

Jisoo was out of Lovelyz' promotions during their debut because some antis put her in a horrible scandal that defamed her.

Winston Sweet_Milk_Tea Tuesday, December 13, 2016

yes but i think that also caused her some mental anguish also which she probably needed some time with her family and loved one to get over it. being accused of bullying is also a victim of cyber bullying.

LovelySerenity Tuesday, December 13, 2016

I was looking back at a pre debut of her dancing to My My. I miss her :( She is beautiful

Anorexia is a serious problem, and it seems like these entertainment companies don't give a shit about it! Maybe S.Korea should focus more on the talent rather than the looks that their idols have, because even though weight loss is a great thing, it's a bit much to send them onto the brink of dying. No wonder so many people drop out during the training process!

WM certainly gives a shit because as soon as they found out she had anorexia they halted her activities. The company that Ladies' Code is in also seems to care, as Sojung was a survivor of anorexia. She, too, had to get hospitalized back in their debut days.

trogdorthe8th kitteauaena Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Well, I sort of agree and disagree with you on that one. I most definitely give WM some serious credit for halting her activities indefinitely while she gets some deep treatment for her disease. However, in a way this is sort of WM's fault. Back when they debuted they openly revealed (and I don't know why the hell they would do this) that this young woman had suffered from anorexia prior to their debut. But their response was basically "We found out she was anorexia, so we got her some therapy and a month later she was all better!" That is exactly NOT how anorexia or any eating disorder works. The sad thing was, she clearly didn't get better- she got better at hiding her issues as well as the actions she took with food. From the reports they've given, I believe that when things started getting really bad they honestly had no choice but to put her on this hiatus. My thing is, if they'd tackled this head on in the first place, she could have gotten some real and extensive treatment to battle this disease. Now, it seems she needs to have this extensive time off because they didn't properly address her issues the first time. Like I said, I'm glad they're taking the initiative NOW, but I can't help but wonder/worry about what damage has been done as a result of their initial actions.

Hope she recovers. Eating disorders for females is totally heartbreaking. While it is a mental health issue at its core, the pressures put on young women in the media is unrelenting. It is especially infuriating when the ill person is naturally beautiful and has an attractive body, but is brainwashed into believing she is fat. It is the gay male dominated fashion industry that pushes the unhealthy skeleton figure as a female ideal, rather than the natural healthy body type (with curves) that straight men find attractive. The fashion industry players should be sued for every female victim of their irresponsibility.
