:/ rude

What if the girl is taller than 5'8"? It's not like I said 80kg (which again isn't necessarily fat, depending on height etc...not trying to offend anyone here!)

Certainly wasn't trying to be rude.

Hmm let me put it this way:
The allure of female oriental stars in general lie in the fact that they are slim, waif-ish, and elegant figures. (Supposedly, the ideal is to somewhat resemble a blade of grass or a willow, but you get the point)

A somewhat ideal scale for such a figure is, in ratio, 170cm is to 48-55 kg, 165 cm is to 44-49kg, 160 and under is to 40-45kg.

Given that it is exceedingly rare that oriental girls exceed, say 175 or even 180cm in height, it is only natural that few (or rather, none) weigh 60kg and above.

In light of the abovementioned, i am inclined to believe that if a k-pop idol star exceeds 60kg, she would hardly be considered thin. More like "healthy", which is probably a huge insult in Korea. Or in the case of Piggy Dolls, just fat.

But of course, it is not all about the weight. If one somehow is able to look fabulous while tipping the scales at a higher end, the generic k-pop fan would be driven to like the said person anyway.

But that said, i personally prefer very slim women, as you can probably tell.

Warmest regards.
