Ever see a music video starring Kpop star Lee Hyori? Ever wish you could have her body? What about Son Dambi?

In a poll conducted in South Korea, Lee Hyori AND Son Dambi are considered FAT by Korean men.

(or Son Dambi)



In a poll conducted in South Korea, Lee Hyori AND Son Dambi, among others, are considered FAT by Korean men and women alike.

Apparently, she isn't considered "thin" enough by men in South Korea and is one of many (healthy-sized or even skinny!) stars that are considered overweight, chubby or fat in South Korea.

It's sad really... and people wonder why so many girls develop eating disorders and the like.


Shiiiit, well, let ME be THAT kinda fat!!! I WOULDN'T mind!!!

LOL exactly. Take a look at this ad.

Koreans are some of the slimmest people. But ironically Korean consumption of slimming pill and appetite depressants is among the highest in the world. http://english.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2010/03/27/2010032700362.html

It sucks that they have such narrow standards but is it any different from us westerners?

Even so, it's one of the worst feelings in the world to feel like everyone thinks your fat, even when the wind can knock you down. I weighed about 2 more pounds than Hyori Lee at one point in my life, and I had stopped eating to get to that weight. I did it so that I could be as thin and glamorous as all of these models in these teen magazines, and even though I felt horrible, I knew I STILL wasn't thin enough. Because to the rest of the world, or at least those who "matter" according to the media, I was still fat. Do you have any idea how much that hurts?

It has to be even worse for those celebrities who are seen EVERYDAY on TV, in magazines, etc. I don't understand how someone is expected to be confident when they feel like everyone around them is bringing them down.



Okay, i know what youre talking about but i do not have any interest whatsoever to tell my opinion
