SISTAR's Hyorin shared about the struggles of dieting on 'Please Take Care of My Refrigerator'.

On the May 22 episode, Hyorin revealed that her label Starship Entertainment had strict weight regulations, especially when she was a trainee. 

She explained, "I was 6-7kg (13-15lbs) lighter during the time I debuted. Back then, they checked everything I ate and my weight every day. I was afraid that I might weigh more if I drink water so I often didn't drink water and waited."

Hyorin also revealed that she gained a greater appetite after she started working in the entertainment industry. She said, "They forced me not to eat when I was a trainee and I'm the type who wants to do it even more if someone tells me not to. They told me not to eat so then my desires to eat grew stronger. That led to a strange sense of damage and I've got a greater appetite."

That is the dumbest shit I've ever heard. Its amazing how bad the knowledge of health, weight loss and diets are in Korea considering they "claim" they're always doing it and struggling with it. If you didn't know, water has the caloric value of 0. And for water retention, your body will store water from other sources anyways depending on the food you eat.

I actually lost weight drinking 114 oz of water a day for a month or so as a project for my health class :/

They never said her to not drink water, this is her decision to not drink because she is just  stupid. Drink water never made you fat WTF...

She didn't say they made her not drink water. She said the company made her not eat obviously so she would lose weight - so because she needed to lose weight and was so stressed about that, she also didn't drink. Like... you know, like the article says.

Just read the comments below, everyone think her company forced her to not drink. And you just repeat what I said so I don't understand.

Water doesn't make you fat, but drinking a lot before being weighted can make you weight more. I remember this one Roommate episode where mixed martial artist was prohibited from drinking before weightig qualification and even went to sauna to sweat water out of her body. So Hyorin being worried about water makes actually lot of sense.

Then just go to pee, water doesn't need to be digested. It actually doesn't make any sense. She sounds really ignorant and dumb.

propanda alicehalf Tuesday, May 23, 2017

You don't pee the water out right after drinking it and if pro athletes already do this before weighting themselves for qualifications no wonder trainee for idol group would.

WTF, so basically Starship is starving their artists? I read an article about cosmic girls begging for their CEO to give them more food..........

i think the idea of what is the "ideal weight for idols" need to change. We as fans, should not be happy when we see celebrities with "Ant waist" and 20" waist. its not normal. reminds me of the recent Weekly idol, where they measured Momo and Tzuyu's waist to try and break the 17.5" record, it just makes it look like Momo's 22" is "fatter" in comparison, when 22" is already very very slim. Instead of comparing waists and weight, i think every celebrity, Singer or actor, should go for a annual FULL health check and be proud of it, IF it shows a clean bill of health rather than aim or things like super slim and such. if the health check detects some abnormalities then its a good chance to do something about it early. Early detection saves lifes.
