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.”

August 5, 2011 1 comment

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.”

August 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Piggy Dolls, the girl group trio that debuted in January with their first EP, “Piggy Style“, have announced that they’ll be making a comeback later this month!

At the time of their debut, the girls earned more headlines for their  weight instead of their outstanding vocal talents. Together, they had  weighed a total of 230 kg, with 20-year-old unnis Kim Min Sun and Lee Jiyeon weighing in at 90 kg and 70 kg respectively, and 17-year-old maknae Park Ji Eun at 70 kg.

After shedding tears over their body image and the inability to  perform to their heart’s content because of their weight, the girls will  be making a comeback with a slimmer image; reportedly, they lost 20 kg  each. Late night practice sessions have been revealed to be the cause of  the dramatic weight loss.

The girls debuted with the hopes of giving other overweight people  the confidence to stand out, so this weight loss has actually put the  company in quite the predicament.

A representative said, “They lost weight naturally in the past  few months while preparing for their comeback. We’re careful and worried  in case people suspect the girls of purposely dieting.”

Stay tuned for more updates, as they’ll be making their comeback with a new image on July 21st!

Piggy Dolls reveal that they’re being pressured to lose weight [April 9 2011]

August 5, 2011 Leave a comment

On April 9th, Piggy Dolls guested on SBS’s “Star King” and shed tears over the pressure to lose weight.

Kim Min Sun (21), who weighs 90kg, began, “My  mother runs a small restaurant, and my father runs a Chinese take-out.  I  was born with the love of eating, which is how I got my current  ‘U-line.’“  She went on to reveal that the group’s combined weight totaled to 232kg, with Lee Ji Yeon (21) weighing at 72kg, and maknae Park Ji Eun (18) at 70kg.

Park Ji Eun continued, “When we first auditioned, there were  three conditions.  First, we had to be talented vocally.  We also could  not have had any plastic surgery done, and we had to weigh over 70kg.”

Unfortunately, due to the flop of their debut album, the conditions have changed drastically, as she went on to reveal, “Before,  we’d say that we just ate and our CEO would still order us something to  eat, but after our first album flopped, he said that the fat concept  won’t work anymore.  He’s trying to change our image now by making us  lose weight, but we don’t want to.”

When asked by MC Kang Ho Dong whether they had any intentions of reaching a compromise with their agency, Kim Min Sun replied, “We, of course, thought about it.  But let’s say that we lose weight and get plastic surgery.  That doesn’t mean we can become SNSD.  Kang Ho Dong is overweight, but also became the best MC.  Why can’t overweight people achieve their dreams?”

She continued, “The pain of being told to leave the room at  auditions even before I opened my mouth to sing is still left in my  heart.  I want people that are overweight to not be so self-conscious  and to be able to leave their house without shame.  We want to become  hope to them.
