I realized answering on instagram wasn’t enough sometimes, so anything too long will be dealt the “answering comments” section.
SNSD Calorie Restriction November 13, 2015 at 6:15 am
thekshallow, take a look: http://golodanie.su/forum/showpost.php?p=973848&postcount=1423SNSD members appearance younger, compared to k-pop girl group with similar age. It would be nice if you tell us about it in your blog. Slowing down the aging process is a classic effect of calorie restriction.
Thank you for the link! The subject does not really interest me honestly, but I’m putting your comment here, if the readers want to check it out.

She looks so good with red lipstick! So pretty ~
About the photo: I believe she took it some time ago, in the fashion industry the usually prepare their collections way before they sell them into the stores (like spring/summer collections are shown during the winter fashion week) but maybe they also used Photoshop? Anyway I don’t think Sica will keep gaining weight, even Krystal sometimes becomes more fuller but then she lose the weight real quick, so I’m sure they’re really good at managing their diet
Thank you Krystalized, you’re always posting helpful comments! Well, I sure hope your theory is right, a combination of “taken a long time ago” and a bit of retouching. The thing I’m unsure about is her losing the weight again. Why would she? She’s not in SNSD anymore, she doesn’t need to stay super skinny and compete with Sooyoung’s legs. I like her very thin as it goes well with her chic aura, but if she starts being curvier (as long as she’s not going overboard) I wouldn’t really mind. After all, she expressed many times before leaving the group that she was dying to have kids.

I really liked this article and I agree with you. I think the most forgettable members would be Sunny and Sooyoung, but the difference is that the SY tries to always improve herself (acting, modeling, mc, singing, etc) and this is why she’s my bias
Yoona is just gorgeous… she doesn’t even try like someone else (*cough* Taeny *cough*), she has the kindest heart and you can feel it. Warmth is not something you can fake.
On a side note, I have to thank you for the Gary Yourofsky’s speech. I already knew about some of those issues, but that video really helped me. I’m not saying I’m 100% vegan, but I’m working on it and trying to do my best and hopefully I’ll became one! Thank you so, so much!
First of all thank you so much for trying to improve, it means the world to me 😀 It’s so important, I’m so glad you got my message.
Unrelated, I found your observations of Sooyoung, Yoona and Taeny on point. Maybe you could guest write here if you have something?

i agree with you 100%. my heart does go out to sunny becuz i mean, imagine being in a group with all these talented and beautiful girls and just feel plain and boring. it happens all the time and i feel like even more so now that jessica isn’t physically in snsd anymore. from my point of view, sunny and tae used to be very close but eventually sunny became closer sica and since taengsic have never really had a great relationship there was tension. obviously this is just speculation and i feel horrible being nosy and such but i guess it’s just human nature. there was a video of party that was uploaded, i don’t remember which and sunny didn’t smile once in it and my heart literally broke in half. i hope she gains back her bubbliness and her happiness because she seems so down these days.
And I agree with you 100% also ^^ I was thinking about it quickly the other day and I wonder if there is a man behind this? Aside a few rumors, Sunny never was on a public relationship. We know so little about her since like 3 years…

I came across this post accidently and it really saddens me like most of us here, how gravely misunderstood Taeyeon is. I don’t think Taeyeon needs attention the way you think she wants because heck she is the most popular within the fandom. It’s absurd to think that she would actually want more attention than what she already gets.
We all see things the same way, but what makes the difference is how we perceive things. So agree that this is how we percieve Taeyeon, but I think you haven’t really felt how it feels to be lonely and empty, have you? See, it’s only people who have felt that way understands how horrible it is to feel lost, your blood frozen and eyes open to see a world and its people who seems oblivious to how you feel. I think its exactly how Taeyeon feels.I agree with a lot of people that the ‘dorky Taeyeon’ image was obviously crafted for promotion and public appeal, because don’t we all love happy-go-lucky people? But its not only Taeyeon, the nature of the entertainment world is that the whole purpose of it is to entertain people, so all entertainment personalities tend to be crafted. A good example is Jung Hyung Don, who would’ve ever thought that he would’ve suffered from anxiety issues? I can give you more examples, but my point here is that its how you perceived Taeyeon. You and everyone else criticizingTaeyeon percieved her to be that happy person she ever wasn’t and when she actually exposed the real her for you guys to accept she gets rejected for being moody and half assing her job as you say. To me she seems more genuine than the rest of the girls, becuase hate her or love her what we see is indeed who she really is. And when the dating scandal broke out everyone rode out on the hate, to hate her more. Everyone is one their toes, to jump and hate at every opportunity they get. Maybe that’s why Taeyeon stopped asking for acceptance and locked up herself in her own sorrow. I understand because I’ve done this countless times just to make everyone accept me until I got tired of it. I never wanted to be alone but now I prefer that. I wanted a huge crowds around me but now I barely have any friends. I think that’s exactly how Taeyeon feels, she needs someone who rul understands her and likes her for who she is despite all the ugly, people like Tiffany, Heechul or Baekhyun.
Finally I have to say that as of lately, Taeyeon has gotten so much better, which surprises me considring how she was like the most hated person of 2014. Listening to her song ‘I’ which she actually wrote down herself that shows that she is positive of everything despite being on the edge of falling and that makes me genuinely happy. So I don’t think what Taeyeon needs is the hate or the blind admiration for her counterpart the famous Hallyu superstar Taeyeon, but a warm smile or even some genuine words of encouragement.
I do know what depression is and how off you feel all the time. I had too a phase where I was always sad and lonely, but I did not do any attention whoring like she did willingly outing Baekhyun when she damn well knew the consequences. She shouldn’t mess with other’s life just because she doesn’t feel well in hers.
And I do not agree on Taeyeon being the most genuine girl of the group, I feel like she’s passive aggressive some moments, until she’s happy again, then she’ll give 100%. That’s not being professional in my opinion. However, I could not agree more with your last line.
hello! i have been a silent reader since last year and that i am so glad that you’re back. anyways, i am just curious if you would actually consider writing articles about f(x)’s krystal? i honestly think that her body is extremely admirable (by me at least) and your opinions on her diet or habits and just a timeline of her figure throughout the years. thank you for reading! ^^
I’m a fan of Krystal but yeah, I’ll add her name to my article list and I’ll see how to organize that. The one thing that bugs me in that f(x) is still a discrete group, there is not a lot of pictures, videos etc compared to snsd. If I was able to write all the articles about snsd’s diet, the diet plans, etc, it was because of the all the informations available. They did tons of shows, interviews, pictorials… When f(x) did less. We’ll see!
Hi :), I don’t know if you can help me, but I think you know a lot about this “world” so maybe you know. I’m 1.60 5’3 and I weight between 50-52 (52, in bad days), but I want to lose a little more so I can weigh 45 kg. I used to weight a few kg more ages ago and I went to a hard time and I lost more than 13 kg, I’m got stuck in 50-51 kg, I can’t lose more. (Even though I know, I don’t follow a diet and I try to eat healthy, but some days I eat whatever).
Could you help me please? I’ll be happy. And sorry if this bothers you.
Hey, I’m sorry I’m not qualified to give any diet advice. However I can tell you what works best for me and maybe you can inspire yourself :
- Being vegan, consumming as much raw fruits & greens as possible (not vegan junk food!)
- When I don’t wish to change the content of my plate (I like pizza too!), I simply change the time of my meals; it’s called Intermitent Fasting, lots of ways to do it, look it up 🙂
- Of course, a daily activity like walking around at high speed, a bit of yoga by watching youtube videos, etc. I like to do all those things and have a class once a week for something that I enjoy like dancing.
- More extreme : when I need to lose weight fast, for a specific event, I count calories. I set the daily max at 1200 cal and stop eating when I reach it. This is for a temporary weight loss, you will not be able to lose weight like this long term.
