September 10, 2011 Leave a comment


Pop trio Piggy Dolls recently shared their feelings about their new diet.

On September 9th’s episode of “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook“, the girls said, “Us three all decided to go on a diet and worked out a lot. We lost an amount equivalent to an average woman’s weight.” They continued, “There are people who liked us for our bodies, so they think we betrayed them and became anti-fans.”

The Piggy Dolls initially debuted with the idea of shattering beauty ideals in the industry, and so their dramatic weight loss was a shock to both fans and admirers of the group.

The girls concluded, “We’re confident that we have gained confidence. We sang everyday by the Han River so we improved in our singing as well.”

Recently, it was revealed that the Piggy Dolls had dropped 20 kg each in time for their “Hakuna Matata” comeback. At the time, the real reason for the weight loss wasn’t revealed, it was only implied that they had lost the weight naturally while preparing for their comeback.

As it turns out, the girls lost a total of 52 kg due to an offer to become models for a sports dieting machine.

Their agency, Winning Insight, explained, “In the beginning of the year, the girls received a modeling offer for the dieting machine and participated, dropping a total of 52 kg. We all decided that it’d be best for them to lose weight in consideration of their health. After three months of intense dieting, Kim Min Sun lost 25 kg, Lee Ji Yeon lost 13 kg, and Park Ji Eun lost 14 kg. Their total weight as a group dropped from 232 kg to 180 kg.”

The members themselves said, “We’ve gone through a lot of changes in our bodies, but our music remains the same. We ask that you continue to give us your love and interest.”
