She surprised many netizens by saying, “Still, I was the heaviest when I weighed 49kg. I’ve never exceeded 50kg in my life.“
Cho Hyun Young said she was on a diet when she was promoting the song ‘A’ in the past. Because Cho Hyun Young was dieting hard, her body went through a yo-yo effect when she was promoting. She said that because she put on weight, there were a lot of dirty comments targeting her looks.
Cho Hyun Young said, “The perverts were leaving filthy comments and giggling among themselves. Seeing that, I was very shocked.”
She added, “Also, I didn’t like how I looked on the screen, so I started dieting diligently from then on.“
Cho Hyun Young then went on a severe diet. She didn’t eat at all. She said, “Now I’m managing my weight by researching a proper diet method.”
She added cheerfully, “I think I look better now than I used to. I think it’s a figure that men would like. I have everything I need to be without being skinny.“
