K-Idols Criticized About Body Weight: GFriend’s Umji, PRISTIN’s Kyla, and More

F(X)’s Sulli: Weight loss and Condition After Diet

Sulli has been involved in a lot of scandals and controversies, from her weight to mental health and more. Since 2013, Sulli has been extreme dieting and has had massive weight fluctuations within a short period of time. This is very dangerous and not recommended. She often maintains a very low weight for several months to years and gains it back later. Sulli also received lots of criticism because of her weight and other stuff. During an f(x) appearance on KBS’ Hello, an audience member told all the members they could stand to lose some weight, but especially Sulli, because her arms and calves were too fat. Amber got extremely mad and told him, “You can have your own opinion, but you shouldn’t hurt other people.”

Along with her fellow member Amber, Sulli made a new trend with her Plastic Bag Diet or also well-known as the Vinyl Diet in Korea. However, Korean netizens suspect that she got Carboxy shots in her legs because they noticed some bruising on her legs when she attended an event at COEX in Lotte. Carboxy Therapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment. It claims to kill fat cells, stimulate blood flow, improve the skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
