G.NA's weight becomes a hot topic

It was recently revealed that G.NA, who’s been known for her amazing figure since her debut, is seriously underweight.

On the August 8th episode of KBS2‘s ‘Vitamin‘, stars known for their fit bodies underwent tests to figure out the age of their bodies. During G.NA’s examination, a medical specialist diagnosed, “[G.NA] has low blood sugar levels and is severely underweight. She needs to increase her weight by 10.5 kg (23.1 lbs) at the very least.” In addition, it was revealed that the singer’s “body age” was 28 years old, a whole 4 years older than her actual age of 24. The expert recommended, “You need to stop skipping meals in order to avoid Hypoglycemia.”

After hearing the diagnosis, G.NA revealed, “I have a habit of eating fried food, gummy candies, bread or other junk food instead of eating substantial meals. Because I’ve been trying to cut out those bad foods, I end up hardly eating anything at all.”

Fans will probably agree that G.NA never needed to lose weight in the first place.

Singer G.NA who is known for her curvy and sexy figure was recently diagnosed as severely underweight.

As fans and those around her began to worry about her well-being, G.NA turned to her personal Twitter page to ease their concerns.

She wrote, “Underweight.. low blood pressure.. malnourished? T_T I learned that being healthy is not just about eating well.. but eating healthy [foods] that have a lot of nutrients T_T Don’t worry! I am healthy and well keke I will become the healthy ‘zzang’ keke.”

Netizens responded to her tweet with, “Unni, please eat“, “You look good, please don’t lose any more weight,” and more.

I think a lot of Kpop idols are underweight honestly, but I've noticed that she's been looking way too skinny lately, especially for her height and size. I wish these people would take better care of their health :(

~~The expert recommended, “You need to stop skipping meals in order to avoid Hypoglycemia.” ~~

I'm diabetic so I get these from time to time (hypo attacks) and they are truly, truly awful to experience. I don't get much of a choice with how my health pans out (it's up to me to control my insulin + food but sometimes it just happens anyway, and I find it difficult to control my diet as it is).

Companies and the public need to stop forcing health issues onto their idols - because that's effectively what they're doing at the end of the day. These men and women need to eat, regardless of how it fits in with their expected standards. They exercise plenty but not getting the right amount of calories or vitamins and sugars, etc, is just going to create serious health problems in the here and now AND the future :S
And I wouldn't wish hypoglycaemia attacks on anyone because they are h o r r i b l e.

fancy seeing you here in omona!

(laughing omg seeing a comment from you on the one day I skim through, A+ tbh)
yolleh 10th-Aug-2012 10:50 pm (UTC)
Is anyone surprised?
yolleh 10th-Aug-2012 10:53 pm (UTC)
And by that I mean the companies place way too much pressure on their idols to maintain an unattainable image to the detriment of their health.
People eat up this image and obsess over it and society becomes more driven to that and thus a vicious cycle is created.

I mean what better way to make money than to feed off people's insecurities?
That being said, I hope she puts on the weight she needs to.
surisays 10th-Aug-2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
awww she looked really old and gaunt in her last promotions. i hope she's alright.
ashiva 10th-Aug-2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
Well, I have been praying in mind her to go for a fattening diet for some time now (she has been looking awful in 2hot promos). I hope she finally realizes now that she's way too skinny.
devjacaiora 10th-Aug-2012 11:28 pm (UTC)
I use to think she was so pretty when she start with I'll back off so you can live... she wasn't skinny... just perfect...

but now... she look like a toothpick with boobs... XD
joongielover 12th-Aug-2012 07:18 am (UTC)
i loved her so much when she debuted... now, not to much..
taylorniw 11th-Aug-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
Not surprised. Makes me think of that WGM episode where Seohyun found out she was about 20 pounds underweight too.
annhh 11th-Aug-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
Thought of that too

It was horrible tho, like no one actually registered it as a serious problem (except the doc of course)
asnindie 11th-Aug-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
Alot of Idols are underweight and G.NA was incredibly skinny in the new comeback. The netizens are to blame too, I'm just glad Secret weren't forced to lose weight.
aeries_amethyst 11th-Aug-2012 03:23 am (UTC)
But both Hyosung and Zinger have lost weight though O__O Not sure if it was due to personal reasons or the company though =/
annhh 11th-Aug-2012 12:27 am (UTC)
Oh I'm so glad she went on that show ^^ Actually that segment is a gift to all idols and idol wannabes.

tbh I didn't expect her of all people to go overboard with dieting. But I think she's smart enough to turn healthy, well I hope.
noneko 11th-Aug-2012 01:10 am (UTC)
Geez, 20 pounds? That's a lot.
asiapopsecret 12th-Aug-2012 11:58 am (UTC)
ikr? mte. How underweight IS this woman?!
k0dama 11th-Aug-2012 01:32 am (UTC)
Time to work out and get some dense muscle on that body girl
45s 11th-Aug-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
if you have that weight = you're fat (cue every male star to comment about your weight and tease you)
if you lose that weight = unni, you need to eat. everyone faking concern over your "health"

women cannot win.

lonelymoon 11th-Aug-2012 04:09 am (UTC)
If she weren't underweight like she is now, netizens would be calling her obese tbh.

yeppppppppppppppppppppp
dysphoriia 11th-Aug-2012 04:36 am (UTC)

goshipgurl 11th-Aug-2012 12:25 pm (UTC)

phililen3 11th-Aug-2012 09:55 am (UTC)
Basically the diagnosis for a lot of KPOP....
izabera 11th-Aug-2012 10:52 am (UTC)
I feel sorry for idols, they probably have no idea that their lifestyle is doing long-term damage to their bodies, some of it irreversible.

Lack of sleep + starvation diet damages your heart tissue, predisposes you to brittle bones, infertility and depression, drains your adrenal glands and messes up your hormonal balance in general. Add to that injuries that are not allowed time to heal properly and you're looking at a pretty grim future health-wise.
hileahrious 12th-Aug-2012 03:49 am (UTC)
unni please stay healthy :/ i love you
kazu_kumaguro 12th-Aug-2012 07:02 am (UTC)
I kinda believe in her explanation though, that kinda happens to me, after I have to cut down chocolate, cheese and fats because of pimple problem I'm just at lost of what I can eat.
and having pimple problem sucks big (and long) time.
though I still give in at times.
jasmineakaiumi 12th-Aug-2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
I hope she gains because she had such a great figure when she debuted but has been looking sickly for the past few months imo :(
