Typically, K-Pop idols keep their lips tightly sealed when it comes to their weight. It’s a sensitive topic for many in an industry where one’s weight is highly monitored. There have even been cases of companies falsifying profiles to make idols appear taller and lighter!
Given the general secrecy of the topic, it was particularly shocking when (G)I-DLE‘s Soyeon had her weight revealed on MBC‘s Home Alone.
At the start of the episode, Soyeon was filmed waking up in the morning.
She stood up right away, and the first thing she did was to pull out the scale. “Will you reveal my weight?” she asked in surprise. And true enough, they did! The number on the scale read 44.8kg (98.8lbs).
On her profile, Soyeon’s height is listed as 157cm (5’2″), so she is undoubtedly on the slim side. But even if she already weighs so little, she’s not completely proud of it.
She explained that she maintains two weights—one when she’s promoting and another when she’s not. The latter is her current weight of 44.8kg.
No matter what the number on the scale is, Soyeon is always stunning—not to mention incredibly talented to boot!
