Choi Yoo Jung reveals training at a young age led to poor body conditions

Weki Meki's Choi Yoo Jung talked about the side effects of training at a young age. 

On January 28, Moon Se Yoon and Choi Yoo Jung guested on SBS Power FM's 'Cultwo Show.' One listener sent in a message, stating, "I work at the hospital next to the Fantagio building. I saw Choi Yoo Jung since her trainee days. She has grown up well."

To this, Choi Yoo Jung said, "I started training at age 13. The head director used to call me a 'walking hospital.'" She explained, "My joints were bad since I started training at a young age. I got colds often too. I went to the hospital often like it's my home. My joints are still not very good but I am recovering.

Yeah - anybody remember the moment from Sunny's radio show (that was filmed) when she got up from her chair at the desk and started hobbling painfully out of the room? That's because her knees are shot from all the dancing she had to do from her trainee days through the hot years of SNSD - and when that happened she wasn't even 30 yet (which she'll turn this May).

Seriously, I have this mental picture of the ritzy areas in Seoul about maybe a decade or so hence, and lots of well-known (and still relatively young) idols will be riding their electric scooters around because their legs and joints are so banged-up from all the dancing they had to do they can barely walk....

13 isnt that young tho, thats basically only 6yrs of training. I havent heard of Dancers/Acrobats, who usually train younger & longer years having this much joint complaints. :/

I think she probs has an underlying condition. All the best for her tho :)

13 isn't that young though, a lot of girls start taking dance classes when they're like 5 yo and in China they even have kids doing acrobatics. Maybe Yoojung has an underlying condition that's causing her joint problems.

kinda concerning if your joints are bad at such a young age. She needs to be very careful when doing her performances so she doesnt end up getting arthritis

and yet these companies pay them peanuts, even after they are making the money. The parents of these kids should really look beyond fame. These kids are too young and can't think for themelsves so as parents they should have protect their kdis right instead of pushing them till they die.

But not in a healthy way. Athletes train and eat healthy, and probably eat more calories than a average person. I'm one, so I know. Idols train, but eat less that 1,000 calories, making their body weak and vulnerable to sickness. It's pretty sad how unhealthyt they are living

Sadly that may be norm rather than the fringe. When body is underweight and work long hours, it's even more important to consume healthy and nutritious contents. It all start at the company level policy that foster healthy lifestyle. JYP tries all organic cafeteria but even his company you hear horror stories of trainee force to lose weight at certain time like Momo forced to lose several kg in a week when she was a trainee.
