On the April 11 broadcast of 'Video Star', Lee Tae Im revealed that she gained 4kg (8.8 lbs) for the film 'S.I.U'. At the same time period, she was offered to shoot an ad for a water park. She explained, "I just went but Park Han Byul sunbaenim and Lee Chae Young showed up with well-toned bodies. They looked amazing and I was embarrassed to stand next to them. I was upset that I cried."
She continued, "I decided to lose weight because I looked too fat."
