Her brother, Lee Chanhyuk, then complained by saying, “Because of that, I couldn’t eat either. She would glare at me when I eat meat.” Soohyun answered, “Even still, didn’t you eat chicken, pizza, and jokbal (pigs feet) while I was dieting?” Her brother gave his final answer, “I just can’t help it.” We hope all the best for these two siblings.
