Kara’s Maknae Kang Jiyoung loses 5kg

Kara’s Maknae ‘Kang Goding (high schooler)’ Kang Jiyoung revealed her secret diet routine.

Along with the other members of Kara, Kang Jiyoung has successfully lost 5kg before the comeback. Fans are praising her as well about the new appearance, saying “she’s got so much prettier” and “she’s become so mature” as her looks changed from the start of the year. Kang Jiyoung used to appeal to the public with her chubby cuteness but now changed to a belle with great figure. She was already tall, but as she is growing even taller as she is still young, entering high school just this year.

Kang Jiyoung just couldn’t take her hands off the corns at the ‘Music Bank’ on the 31st of July as corns are one of the most effective dietary foods. Even throughout the interview she’s asked “Can I eat corns while we’re interviewing?” in her trademark muttering tone.

She said “I’ve lost around 5kg from before” and “I think I’ve reached my limit though as I can’t lose anymore”.

She continued, “I’ve heard a lot of people saying I’ve matured” and “Whenever I hear that, I feel like an adult already even though I’ve just entered high school”.

On the controversial Music Video, where she had to make a muttering confession, she commented “I only got told that I was the main character the very night before the filming” and “There was no written script for it. They only told me to act out ‘the nervous feeling of expressing the crush the character has on her senior’“.

She further said “While I was acting, I was thinking of one of the Coffee commercials similar to this. It was awkward but I tried my best to act nervous” and smiling, “I tried to speak clearly, but when I watched the Music Video, I was muttering. It was embarrassing”.

Also, Kara are on a roll with their double-hit, title track ‘Wanna’ and ‘Mister’ after their come-back on the 31st of July. They hope to continue their success and re-ignite the popularity they gained at the start of the year.

When 'corn' is plural, it sounds like the corns you get on your feet.

honeyhiyo 4th-Aug-2009 06:05 pm (UTC)
if all u do is sit and eat corn all day,
ur just gonna gain weight cuz it makes u constipated LOL
kyoko_hino 4th-Aug-2009 06:06 pm (UTC)
Corn...? ._. I thought it wasn't good for u in large quantities.
*glares at the people that taught me that*
xcherryblossomx 4th-Aug-2009 07:09 pm (UTC)
Maybe she gets full by eating 1-2 corns instead of a full meal. That might be the real secret.
kyoko_hino 4th-Aug-2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
O_O that makes sense, but I would die if I had to eat corn all day.
chibi_rei 4th-Aug-2009 07:52 pm (UTC)
It's not so much that it isn't good for you, but it doesn't really have any nutritional value. Corn is basically water and sugar, and it digests easily so it's a "good" diet food.

:P My mom always told me that too, and she's right. I still love corn though :3
kyoko_hino 4th-Aug-2009 07:57 pm (UTC)
._. yeah I guess that's true, but the sugar shouldn't be good for u ><
idk my grandparents were always trying to teach me that it pollutes ur stomach or w/e @_@ I love corn too! XP

gunsandsmoke 4th-Aug-2009 07:52 pm (UTC)

kyoko_hino 4th-Aug-2009 07:58 pm (UTC)
they're getting younger by the minute @_@ too many high school drop outs in the kpop world.

cake ftw.
hoyah 4th-Aug-2009 08:11 pm (UTC)
i hope she doesn't consider losing weight to mean becoming an adult

girl has obviously gotten thinner, though, but she doesn't look too too skinny. i hope she stays this way, rather than losing more.

She matured in personality or her behavior? She just ate corn or that's what she had most of the time among other stuff?
murasaki_yousei 4th-Aug-2009 08:36 pm (UTC)

essyllus 4th-Aug-2009 09:48 pm (UTC)
feel like an adult already even though I’ve just entered high school

i can't understand why they put them on a diet, they are all thin and in good shape already.
emiliecious 5th-Aug-2009 01:18 am (UTC)
any thinner and they're all gonna disappear soon. what is it with these people?!
poppoya 5th-Aug-2009 02:54 am (UTC)
oh my, corn. but the body barely digests it. hmm.

she was cute before at any rate.
surisays 5th-Aug-2009 07:19 am (UTC)
ummm. corn is basically carbs and it's high GI too. it's not going to keep you full for long.
but she would lose weight if that all she's eating...
