After a long time, Wendy finally revealed the secret due to her issues. On December 12, 2018, Wendy and Seulgi were on JTBC’s ‘Give Me a Meal’. During the show, one of the MC’s, named Kang Ho Dong, asked if the Red Velvet members did a diet.

Wendy answered, “We do take care of ourselves during promotions.” She continued to explain, “In several times, I would blend black beans, milk, cabbage, and apple to eat it in the morning after i wake up. Then I would do 10.000 jump ropes to digest that. For lunch or dinner, I only eat one packet of pumpkin juice. That’s it.”
