Nicole's weight loss triggers societal concerns

Article: "Until when are you going to diet?" Much too skinny Nicole, a look at her diet shows...

1. [+417, -41] Be honest, you guys won't even treat girls as anything other than beasts if they're not as skinny as that. Every time a star gains a tiny bit of weight, you're all so quick to criticize this and that like Suzy's lost her jaw line with her weight gain or that she was the most prettiest when she first debuted.

2. [+317, -39] It's our appearance-oriented society that fuels things like this.. How do you expect non-celebrity girls to feel? It's the nature of our society where if you're not as skinny as that, you'll never be recognized or acknowledged. What do you expect her to feel in a society like that?

3. [+270, -28] Eating delicious things is the happiest feeling in the world ㅜㅜ Poor Nicole, it must be so hard for her



  1. first two comments are spot on

  2. I don't understand why they single out Nicole when all of them look about the same. Maybe because they don't need to diet that much to have those bodies? Idk, but I completely agree with the comments.

  3. Nicole looks ugly now, skinny women are disgusting

  4. too much sex, eh Nicole ?

  5. Hara and Seungyeon are as thin as Nicole and nobody says nothing.

  6. ^ Because Hara and Seungyeon has always been like this... while for Nicole, go look at her when she debuted, she was a little chubby but still skinny, she was cute. However, she keep losing weight ever since so people notice her weight loss, unlike other members who always looked the same.

  7. She just fine! That show above in when KARA in Heyx3 last year...just bcoz she show her lunch recently she got the concern? Journalist doesn't have things to do?

  8. ^ yeah, Hara has always been thin as fuck and actually complained about /wanting/ to gain weight but being unable to because of her metabolism (and she actually has managed to gain a bit this past year).

  9. sane knetizens ftw!

  10. Reading the first comment actually makes me more pissed at Leeteuk than netizens. People knew Suzy was gaining weight but his stupid comment made things even worse. Thank god he's going to the military. I kind of disagree, though. If an idol is known for a curvy figure from the start (ie: Hyosung) they hardly get bashed for their weight. It depends on the person imo but it still sucks. Some are just never satisfied.

  11. I think these korean should come to my country. They would be happy here, they wouldn't have to starve at all.

    Here having a butt and thighs are what men like.

    Mind you it isn't the ''fat butt or fat things'' it is the one you gain by working out... they have to be fit.

    They go crazy for Sistars things... but they lack some butt...

    Here being skinny isn't pretty to women or men, they don't like the starving alike girls.

    I for example, I'm thin and I trying hard to gain some fit thighs and to make my butt a bit bigger, but is pretty hard, I keep losing it if I don't work out! lol

    Different countries, diferrent tastes.

  13. "Nicole looks ugly now, skinny women are disgusting

    awww poor little thing, you're trying too hard to lose weight but you're still failing because you're one of those miserable people that gain weight just by breathing air :(

  14. Nicole was never this skinny hara and seungyeon always was though. Nicole was kind of "curvy" in the past. And can we please stop bashing skinny people? You know some people are naturally skinny. Making fun of someone for being skinny hurts just as much as calling someone fat

  15. LOL K-netizens... YOU guys were the one picking on her saying she was too fat to be an idol. No wonder she turned out like this. Now that she's skinny, she's uglier? UGHHH. Mind your own bodies. fuck.

    1. I remember Key calling her fat but I don't think k-netizens ever had a problem with her specifically...

  16. it was def key that got on nicole's case about being "Fat", not netizens.

  17. That tofu stir fry looks delicious!!!!

  18. tomorrow there will be an article filled with netizens calling someone fat or saying they look dirty because their skin is dark

  19. Nicole diet is unhealthy obsession. She was dumped by a guy because she is not slim. Then she lost her brain.

  20. Nicole's mother own a Korean restaurant, fill up all customers with delicious food , except for her own daughter.

    Can hear this mom crying in her heart.

  21. it's a waste getting angry to a culture that's deeply-ingrained in them that being slim is beautiful.

  22. nicole may be skinny. but she has the muscles n strength because of her diet & exercise. have u guys seen her arm wrestle on god of victory? im sure she's eating delicious food too sometimes. but she had to go through all this diet due to her stage costumes. her costumes are showing her abs, do u think it'll look nice for her to wear those clothes with bloating stomach and fats around her waist. im sure people will criticize her more on that like what happen to Hara during her Lupin days (in the mv she was sitting down n her stomach looks like it's bloating so netizens thought it was fats or something instead)

  23. One of the things that I thought when I read this article is that "these kind of articles show up ONLY NOW?". Her drastic weight loss started when she became an MC together with Hara and that's when I thought "ah, she finally did it. She lost the weight" (mind you, it's sarcasm).

    If you, more or less, followed Kara 3-4 years ago, like watching them on tv shows, etc. Then you would have noticed that Nicole was struggling with her weight and sometimes she spoke about it. She was constantly trying to lose more weight even though at that time (like during their Mister period) she was pretty thin. In comparison to other members, she seemed to be the most concerned with this matter.
    On the show (I think it was Strong Heart), Nicole herself said that Key was questioning her dieting and desire to lose weight. He basically said:"When are you going to lose that weight? You keep saying that you're on a diet and exercising, but there is no difference/no result that I can see. You should take it seriously and lose the weight".

    I think she lost too much weight and wouldn't be surprised if she is obsessed with keeping her weight as low as possible or even more.

    And also, netizens and Asian celebrities should relax and stop being so concerned with outer appearance. Stop trying to be skinnier than the celebrity beside you or any other skinny celebrity. What kind of message do you send to young girls and boys who will call a girl bigger than say Hara or Nicole fat. Geez.

    1. Lol it's not an Asian celeb but a societal thing when models like Kate Moss got popular for her skinny look and more people start going on diet to lose weight....
      In the end, these celebs aren't losing weight to out skinny others, they're losing weight because as celebs, they can't have belly bulges and have to keep up an image for the public

      Don't blame them but society because it doesn't matter if its eastern or western countries, more girls these days are on a diet to live up to the standard society impose on them. Of course agree it's worst when media encourage it too

  24. That too. You're right - society plays a big role in this whole business as well as model agencies and some other factors.

    What I was thinking about is a comparison of a group of celebrity girls and a group of average girls. I think that the celebrity girls will be more thinner and will have more, if not all, girls being thin. Although average girls will also have thin girls, there probably wont be as many as in the celebrity group. In other words, celebrities are more stressed to be thinner than the average girls.

    It's like a never-ending circle: celebrities are pushed by the society, then non-celebrities strive to look like celebrities because they believe that it's a right way to look like.

    "Nicole diet is unhealthy obsession. She was dumped by a guy because she is not slim. Then she lost her brain."

    I heard about that. She talked about her past love.
    She sounds desperate. Not long ago she also said that she paid the bill when going out with guys.

    Not being old fashion, but a girl paid for guys? And the guys let her? That's sound cheap.

    lol what are you talking about??
    nicole never have a boyfriend in her life!
    and about dinner, I think you misunderstood with nicole gonna dinner with some male idol, but he decide to tell her lies because he want to go to eat with hara!
    I tthink you talking about when she going out with her '91 line~!
    that's her choice to pay or not but she's a social butterfly, its not her that desperate to be friend with them, but they're loving be friends with nicole! admit it!

  27. It's actually cheap if a girl expect the man to pay, the bills should be split 50-50, if the man pays he should expect some other form of compensation from the women.
