Ailee Candidly Opens Up About Past Struggles With Her Weight And Learning To Overcome Them

Ailee opened up about her struggles with her weight and how she overcame them during a recent appearance on JTBC’s “Hidden Singer 5” on August 5.

(...) When it came time to introduce each of the voice impressionists, one contestant’s nickname caught people’s eye. Calling herself “Ailee who lost 15 kilograms,” contestant Kang Go Eun explained, “I was on the heavier side growing up and I felt the pressure of needing to lose weight in order to pursue a career as a singer. That’s when I saw an article about Ailee’s weight loss. They said she ate 500 calories a day and exercised all day while also practicing her choreography. I tried copying her routine and I really felt like I was going to die. I couldn’t sing as well as I used to.”

Hearing this, Ailee revealed, “When that article came out, I was around 49 or 50 kilograms.” She tried to open up as she said, “I wouldn’t eat anything and just kept going,” but had to stop when her emotions overtook her as she remembered her struggles and she began to cry.

After taking a moment, Ailee continued on to say, “I was so sad. I was supposed to be a singer who just sings, but it [losing weight] was something I had no choice but to do if I wanted to stand on stage, and that made me so sad.” She added, “I was upset because I knew that the diet and weight loss had affected my singing, and I felt a sense of shame because I felt like I wasn’t showing my 100 percent when I was singing on stage at that weight. I may have been nice to look at when I weighed 49 to 50 kilograms, but I think I was feeling at my lowest back then.”

Ailee then smiled and revealed that she had learned to overcome those struggles, saying, “I’ve decided not to care about my weight anymore.” She emphasized, “I’m so happy where I’m at now and I’m satisfied with my singing, and I think that’s much more important.”

BTOB Eunkwang to enlist on August 21st



SOURCE: OH_mes from NAVER


My heart is not ready! I know Minhyuk (29 Korean age, same age as Eunkwang) and Changsub (28 Korean age) wants to go to the military with him so does this mean that they'll be going soon? This weekend is gonna be a cryfest in their concert. This is not the first time I'm sending my kids to the army (first was SS501) so its just that I can never get used to it.

Pentagon's K-fans have a message for I-fans, explain why they aren't mad eventhough they are



- They are not mad that he's dating Hyuna, they are angry because he didn't tell them about it unlike Hyuna
- They are mad that Triple H was created so they both could spend more time together while in front of their fans
- Believe that there are "complicated parts in the K-pop industry that international fans will find hard to understand", "It's not that we are falsely thinking that we have a chance to date them or something, or they are possessions of ours"
- Claim that fans love them for their image, and dating damages said image
- Want to know if he received consent from the other Pentagon members to date Hyuna
