"Early on, I did 'Doctors,' and then haven't been able to take a break since, so it was hard for me," she revealed.  "For 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo,' I ate floury food and worked hard to gain weight.  Honestly, saying 'gain weight' means it's not good for the body.  When I gained weight and acted as Bok Joo, I was fine, but when I was myself, I felt different and my clothes wouldn't fit, so I was somewhat depressed.  My fat was sticking out and this body could be irreversible and my skin got bad.  I was depressed when I was myself again. However, when I started up [acting] again, I did so happily."

being happy is not about how you looks?it just yourself thinking. so just think happy thought and all your unhappy things will go away no matter how you look.

bu I didn't notice her weight gain, she's wearing baggy clothes in the drama and she looks so thin in it!!

I find her a little gain but still the same beautiful as she already is. she didnt gain much weight as I see.

They are so cute in the drama

I loved the drama but this is ridiculous. She barely even gained any weight. She is no where near fat. What a drama queen.

Maybe for us, she didn't look chubby at all. But she's a model, a really skinny one, ofc she'll feel different and unusual. That's just what she feels and it doesn't make her a drama queen

exo_Linda bichnaneunshinee Thursday, January 12, 2017

lol you have no right to call her a drama queen unless you have to live up to the beauty standards she lives up to. take a moment and put yourself in her shoes

bichnaneunshinee exo_Linda Friday, January 13, 2017

She isn't fat and acting like she is only rein forces unhealthy beauty standards. If she had actually gained a lot of weight they wouldn't have had to dress her in clothing 5 sizes too big to give the illusion that she is.

you don't get the point of what she's saying, do you? for naturally skinny people it's just as hard to gain weight - if not harder - as it is to lose weight for chubbier people. If she likes the way she was before she forced herself to gain weight, let her be. Why do people like you complain when skinny people like being skinny but applaud when chubbier people say they like the way they are now? She never said she starved herself and never said other people should either - in fact, she said she worked hard to gain weight

You totally missed my point. I said nothing about her eating habits. And she doesn't say anything about having a hard time gaining weight... I'm saying that saying she is fat at these weight suggests to people who are her size or heavier are disgusting slobs. I don't understand all the hate over my comment. It's not that serious people.

pandaleee bichnaneunshinee Saturday, January 14, 2017

don't say the wrong things then... you're basically complaining about the drama script but putting the blame on the actress by calling her a drama queen for saying she liked her before body better and that she worked hard to gain weight... she never called people fatter than her "disgusting slobs" and didn't even allude to that idea... and the drama didn't show the weightlifters as "disgusting slobs"... if one of the gymnasts said she worked hard to lose weight and that she liked being chubbier better would you call her a drama queen? why don't you complain that the drama shows people skinnier that gymnasts as anorexic sticks while you're at it? you're the one using double standards and reading stuff between the lines that isn't even there in the first place

lol not once did she say that people who are her size or bigger are disgusting. she NEVER said that. she's just not comfortable being a bigger size because she's a model and she has grown up in an environment where most people thrive to be thin. Just like others dont wish to be thin like her, it doesn't mean that they think that everyone who is skinny are disgusting. you're just misunderstanding her

if your willing to change or devote to a roll despite the hardships its true acting! she nailed it! just as long as she remembers she did great, instead of just sticking to the same thing all other actors do in kdramas

I thought her body looked fine throughout the drama when they showed it. She was swallowed up by a coat or sweats through most of it. I like her but I had to overlook her constant use of the "pout" to display every emotion. Still she and Nam Joo hyuk had good chemistry so it worked. I think it's terrible that she was depressed about her body during the filming. She didn't look "fat" by any means. She sure as heck didn't look depressed so pulled it off. You go girl!

She was great as Bok Jo. And all the time, during the close shoots of her face I thought how she has great skin. When you have  troubled skin, under the really good lightning you can see that the skin is uneven and that there are bumps. Her face looked smooth like baby's.
