TaeIm Lee surprised everyone with her '3 spoonful diet'. On 'VIDEOSTAR' last 11th Lee appeared with a noticeably shrunk figure. It was a totally different image from what she used to be remembered as; a glamorous beach-girl type.
During the show, Lee shared that "I only eat three spoons a day. My meal would be a spoonful of food." and also mentioned, "Don't try this spoon diet without preparation." All the hosts and guests were worried about her too-skinny figure and Lee promised she would gain 2~3 more kilograms.
Dieting is something that's inseparable to celebrities. Many actors even start dieting for their roles. Just like Lee had to go through rumors of plastic surgery due to losing extreme weight, dieting can transform an actor's image.
Actor MyungMin Kim gone through an excruciating level of diet for the film 'My Love, By My Side' as a lou gehrig(ALS)'s disease patient. Eating less was his first try in dieting. To drain his body in to a skeleton like figure he lost 20 kilograms. The director had to ready some candy for him throughout the middle of his diet because he started to suffer from low-sugar.
Jinwoong Jo and JungWoo Ha also lost more than 10 kilograms each for the movie, 'The Housemaiden'. Jo said, "Dieting is an option to express a character. If it can support the character then as an actor you should push yourself to how much you can, shouldn't you?" adding his opinion about acting. For weight loss he started minimizing meals and didn't eat anything past six. He also jogged over thirty laps every night out at the playground focusing on cardio.
If actors shown some extreme weight issues, some female celebrities also go through diet to perform their best on stage. AOA, one of Korea's top idol group member 'SeolHyun' also worked hard for her body.
At an online community site there was a picture of two SeolHyuns, one back when she just debuted and the other of her now. SeolHyun said it was hard for her to diet because she loved eating so much but lost weight by eating one meal a day. About the same method as Lee's diet choice.
It seems like more weight loss and gains of celebrities will surprise us for a while.
