Umm, well, off the top of my head. Hyosung from Secret has a "healthy" BMI, its 19.9. She revealed her real weight on tv show (the one with the scale and Tony), its 51Kg, so it could actually be higher if her profile height of 160 cm is exaggerated. Its probably closer to 20.5-21.

(WG's Hyelim, Aliee and actress Hwang Bo are also healthy (with their real weight, not profile weight), but they come in right around 18.5-19.1. Though, I'm not 100% about the real reveals either, since their all 50-52Kg)

So just don't believe the numbers.

Thanks :) Hyosung doesn't look any bigger than the other Secret girls to me, tbh.

It's really sad that they're promoting a level of thinness that even they can't achieve though...it just seems really wrong.

Have you heard the term 'driver license weight?' Its basically means most people weight on their driver licenses about 10lb less then what it is in real life. (Or used to be, its now up to 20-30, but that society for you) They're not doing anything that woman/girls don't do in real life. Something about 45-48Kg is this magic sweet spot for kpop idols and like I said, I'm not buying the reveals either without a scale, because all their real weights are 50-52kg. Hyosung probably is about the same as the rest of Secret, she just the only one that was on a scale on television. So just remember when you do BMI for idols add about 5Kg and take off about 2-3cm.

(Though, some of them, and its pretty obvious which, are that light, for example scales say Yoona's weight is 48kg (she says 50kg btw) and Seohyun's is around 51kg. I also want to let you know that, despite what the first commenter said, I didn't find your statement offense at all and I'm one of those people whose BMI is lower that 18.5. I think you did a good job)

Yeah, I can see people doing that. We don't put our height/weight on our licences here, just date of birth, photo and address. It seems a bit weird for the weight to be included, especially as it can fluctuate in a lot people (or, as you said, people can lie); I know it's to get a general sense of the person's physique so you know if it's them, but yeah, it's just an unfamiliar concept to me.

Thanks for the info, and thanks for saying that :) I was worried that I'd inadvertently offended people!
