A celebrity who dieted to death to pass the standard of 45kg

TWICE’s Jihyo was famous even before her debut as a long-term trainee at JYP Entertainment.

Having been a trainee for 10 years since 2005, she once received a notice from the agency saying, “We will not take profile photos for you unless you weigh 45kg” due to her weight gain caused by stress in the past. At that time, Jihyo went on a diet to meet the standard, but she did not pass as she weighed 45.2kg. Therefore, she could not proceed with the profile shoot.

However, she lost weight thanks to a steady diet with bloody efforts after debuting. She is currently boasting a slim body that is different from the time she suffered a slump. When asked about her diet method during an interview, Jihyo drew attention by replying, “I’ve seen a lot of diet effects from abs exercise. I hate the difficulty that comes with dieting, so I choose not to have diet meals. Instead, I cut out late-night snacks from my menu and eat one meal a day.”

She also said that she is constantly exercising for the purpose of strengthening her stamina to carry out her schedules after debut rather than losing weight.
