AOA's Mina "unintentionally" revealed her weight but netizens think it was all on purpose. 

On February 20, Mina shared a photo of herself on a scale with it reading 94.2. Korea uses the metric system so the weight is measured in kilograms and this seems to have made Mina believe that the scale is telling her she weighs 94.2 kgs (which is equal to 207.7 lbs).

Puzzled by the big number on the scale, Mina wrote, "What is wrong with this?"

But we all know Mina is nowhere close to 94.2 kgs or 207.7 lbs. Netizens believe the scale was actually set on pounds, making her weight turn out to be 42.7kgs. 

Many women in Korea consider 50~52kgs (110 - 115 lbs) as the ideal weight. Mina, who falls 10kgs below the desired weight, is considered very light. With this in mind, some netizens are thinking that Mina purposely uploaded the photo and pretended like she didn't know it was actually reading in pounds to show off her skinny figure. 

Comments about her Instagram post read, "I think she intended that", "100% on purpose", "She's the one who took the photo lol", and more. 

On purpose or not, Mina is indeed very skinny!

Her BMI is only 16.4???? And the standard is 20??? Girl, you're at low risk of weight-related problems, but you could develop nutritional deficiency and osteoporosis (i'm not talking about the meme here). Please eat more, for your height, you should at least be 45 kg (that's still underweight but due to idol life, it's probably a bit better).

If there's any brand of adult human who disgust me the most, it's the ones who do something on purpose and play cute/coy about it. Unless the girl's holding about 100 extra pounds of stuff on her tiny self, there's no way she weighs 94 kilos. And she's showing off how little she weighs? Way to give people with already shaky self-esteem and poor body image a boost, Mina. Definitely a great role model.

okay, but you don't know that? do you know enough about her to make a judgment? My aunt had a scale that was broken once and so it would put out random numbers, even when I went on it twice in a row within a few seconds once it would say I'm 200 lbs and the next second it would say i'm 60 lbs. I thought it was funny so I sent a capture of the comparisons to my cousin and said "ohh apparently i can shapeshift" yada yada... I KNEW it was broke, but a guest at my aunt's house used the scale once and asked what was wrong with it and she was actually puzzled by it. Mina's caption is literally "why is this thing like this" or "what's wrong with this" meaning that she could have thought it was broken and actually saying she was 92 kgs... and considering another aspect, I know that AOA's company FNC actually bother AOA a lot about what they eat and whatnot. They live in a dorm. The others are on strict diets so if she eats she'll probably chewed out by either fellow members, she'll either feel sorry for them, or chewed out by the manager for "Tempting" fellow members. Either way, maybe this is her way of saying "why am I like this? Why am I so skinny FNC?" Maybe this is her call to help. Nowhere does she say that being tiny is a good thing and that she feels great and she's bragging. No. She's either 1. really confused or 2. asking for help to change a problem. If there's any brand of adult human who disgust me the most, it's those who are quick to judge others by their limited scope of information because it's easier for them to think a person has nasty intentions over the genuine words or picture displayed

People are so stupid! Why would she do that on purpose

intricate Wednesday, February 22, 2017

hmmm, 160 cm tall, 49.6 kg, only 13 years old, yep i'll be heavier than the "desired weight" in what, less than a year?

ibelieveicanfly datboiiiii Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Idk where you're from but this is the "desired weight" in Korea, where women are usually short. You're already 160cm at 13 yo so you'll grow taller and it's normal to gain weight as you grow.

Geekscape datboiiiii Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Don't be so discouraged really. You are 13 & growing. These girls go through extreme diets to be think. Your height & weight are proportional. Enjoy teenage years with no worries. Damn I wish I was a teen again 😭😭😭

datboiiiii ibelieveicanfly Wednesday, February 22, 2017

i'm from singapore, but my dad is 180 cm tall so he's a giant lol.

ibelieveicanfly datboiiiii Thursday, February 23, 2017

Oh so i think you'll also be above average then. Ive read that the average for singaporean girls' height is around 160cm so i bet you're already a giant among your friends ? lol

datboiiiii ibelieveicanfly Thursday, February 23, 2017

well, i go to an international school because i lived in australia for most of my life. i'm pretty average compared to my friends and a lot of them are taller than me.

ibelieveicanfly datboiiiii Thursday, February 23, 2017

nvm then haha

pinkylovesfood Wednesday, February 22, 2017

i think 42kg is fine with her height (160cm), especially since she is a kpop idol (because they dance alot, therefore exercises alot) i'm 155cm and 45kg and i don't exercise at all and i know i'm not unhealthy/underweight

Geekscape pinkylovesfood Wednesday, February 22, 2017

For your height you weight is okay but for her height her bmi is very low. Lower than yours. Very low so it's a bit worrying

JeffBenson Wednesday, February 22, 2017

BMI is more important that weight, how tall is she?

Geekscape JeffBenson Wednesday, February 22, 2017

She is 160 cm & her bmi ☹️☹️ very worrying

methodman88 Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Mina is so beautiful. But she's so underweight. Feed her some meat

MikaylaPark Wednesday, February 22, 2017

I am always shocked to see that Korean girls are under 50kg and somewhere near 40 kgs. That shit is not healthy

ibelieveicanfly MikaylaPark Wednesday, February 22, 2017

It could be if they're short

MikaylaPark ibelieveicanfly Wednesday, February 22, 2017

I think most Korean girls have an average weight of 160 cm. But they still want to weigh around 40 kg.

MikaylaPark Wednesday, February 22, 2017

* height lol

ibelieveicanfly MikaylaPark Wednesday, February 22, 2017
