My sister is obsessed with diet [Hello Counselor/ENG, THA/2019.08.05]

“I’m Losing My Appetite.” (She can’t even imagine that) Hello. I’m a woman in my 20s. And all women get stressed out about this. That would be dieting. I’m going through five years of unwanted suffering because of dieting. (Huff, huff) “Gosh, that was tiring.” “That’s enough! Aren’t you tried?” “Still have a long way to go to burn off this belly fat.” The person obsessed with exercise isn’t me. It’s my older sister! I wouldn’t even complain if she had weight to lose. She’s 170cm tall and weighs 53kg. That’s like an actress. – Totally. / – That’s like a model. 170cm and 53kg? I don’t think my sister will ever stop dieting. And this really stresses me out… “Boy, it’s hot! I’m going to eat some ice cream.” “Hey! That’s so high in calories! It’s the same as an entire bowl of rice!” “You’re making me lose my appetite! Geez! I’m just going to eat Korean food.” “Do you know how many calories white rice has? Don’t eat. Come exercise with me instead.” My sister’s dieting stresses me out. She pushed herself too hard while dieting and then… This is the personal trainer. “Miss, dieting like this can kill you. You need to stop!” Even a fitness expert tried to stop her. It’s bad for her health, but my sister keeps dieting. Please talk my older sister out of her crazy dieting! We have to talk to Yohan since he’s an athlete. They weigh us every morning and write our weights on a chalkboard. Your weight? You can’t lose or gain weight. – Really? / – You have to maintain your weight. I went on my first intense diet not long ago. I lost weight, but singing became so tiring. It didn’t seem worth it. So when my agency talks about my weight I say, “Then is it okay if my singing gets worse?” – Nice. / – “What would you prefer?” We have to lose weight in a very short time. We just starve ourselves to lose weight. But starving leads to binge eating. Starving yourself is the worst way to diet. Yes, starving is the worst way to diet. Let’s meet our guest that’s struggling with her sister. Come on out! (Who is concerned about her diet-crazy sister?) (Jang Yerim) (Even she looks skinny) How much does your sister diet? She’s 25 years old now. She started dieting since she was 20. – When she was 20? / – Yes. She wasn’t even fat. Anyone would think she’s skinny. That’s how skinny she is. But in college, she started feeling fat and started dieting. She hasn’t eaten rice since she entered college. She stopped eating white rice when she was 20? My family grills pork belly when we eat together. The smell of the pork belly makes you want to eat a few pieces. Not just a few pieces. A lot. My sister stopped eating meat completely. She has her own diet. Chicken breast, pumpkin, sweet potato, soy milk and that’s it. – For 5 years? / – Yes, for 5 years. She doesn’t season her food either. Low sodium. Does she look at all the labels for the calories? She only drinks stuff that says “diet.” Diet coke. Diet sports drink. – No sugar. / – Drinks with no sugar. She’s been doing that for 5 years. How much weight did she lose? She got down to 47kg at first. 170cm at 47kg. That’s so skinny. My mom begged her to stop. So she stopped and went up to 53kg. She wasn’t satisfied with her body, so she’s still dieting now. – She’s still dieting. / – Yes. Just let your sister exercise and you can live your own life. It wouldn’t matter if she just dieted herself. I really like ice cream. But whenever I try to eat some… “Do you know how many calories that is? It’s the same as a bowl of rice.” That’s so annoying that I lose my appetite. – You should still eat it. / – How cute. You’re a bit sensitive. If someone said that to me I’d be like, “Really? Maybe I’ll have another bowl.” – Right. / – Yeah. I’m satisfied with my body. You’re very thin too. I can just suck it in if I ever get belly fat. And I really hate exercising. “Yerim, let’s go play badminton. Let’s go to the gym.” She keeps forcing me. She makes you go out and exercise. (That sounds terrible) You have such a cute look on your face. You must be upset. She’s so young, but she looks so troubled. This is so funny. Your sister upsets you that much? She must be worried. Let’s meet the older sister. Hello! (Who has been obsessed with dieting for 5 years?) Pardon me for asking, but can you stand up for us? So tall! Can you turn around? Her stomach is flat. She’s so thin. Gosh, I’m jealous. You’re 170cm tall? Yes, 170cm. I’m sorry, but may I ask you your weight? I gained a bit, so I’m around 55kg. You look great though. This is very different from what her sister described. Do you understand this concern? No. I’ve put a lot of thought into this diet I’m on. My sister eats something and then tells me that she has belly fat. Of course you get belly fat when you eat. So I try to get her to stop eating. You don’t think that you’re thin? I don’t. – Why not? / – Then what do you think? Only my arms and legs are thin. I still have a lot of belly fat and a muffin top. That’s why I have to keep dieting. Do you gain weight easily? No. Not really, but something shocking happened and I started dieting ever since. And I’m still dieting now. Gosh, that guy was a jerk. What was this shocking event? My mom and I were walking together and we ran into her friend. She looked at me and said, “Yejin, you gained weight. You got chubby.” People have been calling me a skeleton since I was a kid. But this woman said I was chubby. I realized I gained a lot of weight. That’s why I started dieting. How much did you weigh back then? 57kg. – She just gained 2kg. / – 57kg? You said hearing that comment was shocking. But what about “Exercising more can kill you”? I was in the process of losing weight. “Just a little bit more and I’ll lose weight.” That’s what I kept telling myself. Can you tell us about your diet now? I wake up and exercise. I cycle and then I shower. After I shower, I eat pumpkin and chicken breast and go to work. I work and then at 12… My company cafeteria is a buffet. So I eat lunch. It’s like a Korean food buffet. And you only eat a little there. Just a bite. I eat a little and then I get off work at 6. I go the gym and work out for 1 or 2 hours. 30 to 40 minutes of cardio and I work out my muscles for the remaining time. When I can’t make it, I have exercise gear at home, so I exercise at home. (I just don’t get her) Is there a guy or a crush that you want to look good for? Is that why you exercise so much? No, I’ve never had a boyfriend since college. So it’s not because of a guy. It’s for herself. Girls try to look prettier when they like a guy. Or is it for work? What happens if you don’t exercise? I feel sore. (You’re not even an athlete) What kind of exercise gear do you have at home? She said she bought stuff. We have weights and a bicycle. We even have a gym ball. There’s this one thing she uses that she hides from our mom. – It’s been revealed. / – She kept it hidden. You said that despite your mom being here. Today’s the day. When my sister gets her paycheck, she spends half of it on chicken breasts and exercise equipment. I have a savings account too. I buy stuff with extra money. My sister really likes getting her nails done. She uses all her money too. I like exercising, so I buy exercise equipment, dieting foods and gym clothes. It’s the same thing. She says you spend so much on chicken breast. Aren’t you sick of eating chicken breast? I enjoy it. These days, they make chicken breast taste good. Really? Don’t you want to try other better-tasting food? Sometimes, but I don’t really enjoy eating. (Is she for real?) Some people are like that. I imagine your parents are worried that you eat so little. Let’s meet the mother. Hello, ma’am. Hello. You look very worried, ma’am. You understand this concern, right, ma’am? As a mother who cooks, I’m more concerned than my younger daughter. I try to give my daughter one spoonful of brown rice, not even enough for a 3 or 4-year-old child. But she won’t even eat that. Beef bulgogi, grilled fish… She won’t even eat her favorite dishes. Just a piece of pumpkin and chicken breast. (Just thinking about that makes us hungry) She liked that stuff as a kid. Bulgogi and grilled fish. Sure. She even loved fried chicken and pizza. She wasn’t a picky eater. But why won’t you eat any of that stuff now? My mom always makes high-calorie dishes to fatten me up. All I can think about are the calories. Your daughter said that running into your friend was so shocking that it made her like this. I really regret running into that friend with her. Why did she have to run into my daughter? I almost resent her for that. I feel regret. Does she usually comment on person’s weight? Some people are really blunt. No, she isn’t like that. Yejin was always very skinny as a kid. But she gained a bit of weight. “Yejin, you gained some weight. You look nice.” She said it with good intentions. But that really got to Yejin. It started stressing her out. (It was all a misunderstanding…) After doing her inbody check, her personal trainer said that she could die exercising and dieting like this. – She doesn’t eat a balanced diet. / – Right. She has no muscles. There’s this exercise where you stand up straight and throw a gym ball. But she just fell to her feet. A gym ball isn’t even that heavy. She doesn’t have the strength to lift it, yet she still continues dieting. (Never-ending diet) (This is a serious problem!) Any other side effects? Any serious ones? She’s losing her hair and her eyelashes. – I bet. / – Her eyelashes too. All that dieting made her stop menstruating. Yes, that happens a lot. That happened to someone I know. She went to an oriental clinic and got treatment. She’s in her early-20s. As her mother, I hate seeing her like this. (She’s breaking her mother’s heart) She stopped menstruating and got really unhealthy. So she had to take a year off of work. – Your sister took a year off of work? / – Yes. Did she keep exercising though? – Yes. / – She’s an addict. Let me ask the older sister. Do you want to look good for guys or are you dieting for your health? But you aren’t even healthy. Why are you forcing yourself to diet? I’ve been on a diet before, so it’s stuck in my head now. No matter what I eat, I check the calories first. My mom grabbed me and pleaded me to stop. So I’ve gained weight now. She’s listening to your mom and eating her cooking. Things are back to normal. She looks like she’s fine, but her life doesn’t seem happy. She goes out to exercise and then she comes home. All she does is go to the gym. Her life seems so boring. She doesn’t meet her friends often. One time, I said I’d set her up with a guy. She said she wasn’t interested in men. How do you feel? Are you happy now? No, I’m not happy. You live for happiness. You aren’t happy after exercising and dieting? Dieting is really difficult. – Sure. / – And so is exercising. That’s why I’ve never felt happy in my life. I think I just try to stay alive. You haven’t found something fun yet. All your focus is on dieting, so you can’t get a hobby. Your entire life revolves around dieting. Dieting doesn’t make you happy. You just do it because you have to. Do you have a goal? An ideal weight? – Yes. / – What’s your ideal weight? 52kg. My ideal weight is 92kg. I can’t hit my goal no matter how much I eat. That’s my concern. Why does it have to be 52kg? You must have some basis. Why 52kg? Just because. So there’s no special reason. You don’t know why you have to diet. (You need to stop dieting like this) We all have happy memories, right? For me, it’s when I order food at home. And you’re waiting. I imagine where the delivery guy is. You can see that on apps these days. They show you that on food delivery apps. I get so happy that I go crazy! How about for you, Yejin? When are you the happiest? Me? When I’m happy? (Think hard) When I get off work. Yeah, that’s true for all office workers. I didn’t diet when I was younger. I went to Gangwon-do with my family. We ate instant noodles. It was so exciting. Even the day before we went. Have you ever felt happy since you started dieting? No. She’s 25 now and I said this to her. “Yejin, do you want to meet a man?” “Yejin, want to get married?” (At age 25? That’s so early!) I thought maybe she’d start having some fun. Just imagine how I felt to say that. But I don’t think she’s interested in guys yet. Are you really not interested in guys? And you don’t meet your friends? We’d end up eating and I’d worry about calories. And for blind dates… I’m more interested in exercising. Can we talk about the kind of guy you like? Let’s talk about that. Let’s get a little off-topic. Kim Jongkook… I want to meet a guy that exercises. She should date someone like that. Kim Jongkook always talks about exercising and chicken breast on TV, but he eats his mother’s cooking too. He takes his younger siblings out to dinner a lot. Jongkook says food is fuel for exercising. I think you can be happy if you eat and exercise in moderation. We’ve all been on diets, but it isn’t a goal, it’s a process. Like losing weight to fit into a bikini. Or going on a diet to become healthy again. But after hearing from you… What is this? You don’t have any goals. You just want to weigh 52kg. You’ve suppressed yourself. – You force yourself to diet. / – Yes. – You’ve put this on yourself, right? / – Yes. You love it when you get off work. You should get off dieting too. – Wow! / – Wouldn’t that be nice? (Automatic applause) You love getting off work. Now you can travel with your family again. (Yeah) is there anything on your bucket list besides dieting and exercising? I want to travel abroad with my friends and family. Traveling abroad. I want to earn a lot and buy an imported car. That’s a goal too. Sure. Ma’am, say something to your daughter. To my beloved daughter… Our hearts are breaking because of you. But I’m thankful that you regained your health. I wish you can tell me when you’re my age that you were happy in your 20s. I love you, my daughter. I’m always rooting for you. I love you. She’s an ordinary mother. A warm-hearted mother. Yejin, I don’t want you to date a guy like Kim Jongkook. And you should come out with me to get food and go shopping when I ask you to. Let’s try to enjoy the same hobbies. These sisters seem close. I had no idea my family was so worried. So I’m going to work at this. I want my entire family to be healthy. And I want us to be happy. Well said. (Time for them to be happy now) It’s good that you came today. Well said. Time for our guest panel to vote. Sangyeol. You don’t have to totally change course. Just make a few small changes. Don’t let it stress you out. This is not a concern. I hope you don’t exercise so much that it’s bad for your health. And remember, if it tastes good, it’s zero calories. I don’t think it’s a concern. I hope the people around you tell you that it’s okay to eat and that you look fine the way you are. I don’t think it’s a concern. If you think this is a concern for the family, press the button! (What do the people think?) 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! Time’s up! Let’s see the results. How many votes? Over 100? Will it go over? 72 votes. Please be happy. That means today’s winner is “I Want to Stop Dreaming”! Today’s winners get a cash prize. Congratulations! Until the day Korea has no concerns… Hello Counselor will be rooting for you all! – Thank you! / – Thank you!


  1. It would be nice if i could be on a diet like that too…I'm so fat yet i can't get through a diet for a week.

  2. I followed a diet when I was 14 weighs 58 kg and now I'm 16 weighs 50 kg and I hope I don't get kilograms because being fat isn't easy in this society!😢

  3. But badminton is sooooo fun!

  4. They really need a professional but it wont help because korea is all about looking skinny no matter if it effects them in a unhealthy way .. Sadly.

  5. that’s called an eating disorder

  6. Our body is designed to store fat to overcome lack of food in the environment. So eating little calories or not eating at all will initially may make u look like u are loosing weight but after some time ur body will be triggered to store more fat when ever possible. Counting calories is bullshit. All calories are not the same. Even when the amount of calories in 2 bananas and snack bar are the same they are metabolized very differently in the body. Best way is to do ur own research and figure out ur body metabolism and work accordingly. Usually intermittent fasting with keto or palio diet works best . But avoiding fats (not the fried food fats or of snacks) and Risteicting the food choice may cause deficiency of some vitamins and minerals and throw ur body of natural balance and may even cause u to gain weight. For beginners look up related information from impact theory health and mindvalley. They are soo good. And then make ur lifestyle changes not diet changes.Lost 3 kg in a month without restrictions and exercise because I have scoliosis.

  7. diet is not just about lossing weight -_-

  8. She 100% has an eating disorder and has exercise anorexia. I don't know her BMI or how below average weight for her height and genetics she is but it seems like she could be diagnosed with anorexia. She has all the symptoms: believes she's bigger than she is, obsession with counting calories and restricting food intake to very small and unsustainable amounts, has the mentality that she HAS to diet and lose weight, life revolves around dieting and exercising and over exercises (does it multiple times a day for more than an hour). She isn't happy and feels miserable but can't stop. She needs professional help before it gets to the point where he r body basically stops functioning. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate among mental illnesses and are the hardest to treat. She REALLY needs professional help..

  9. It's like anorexia but she still eat some😐

  10. Omg i was once like her. I only think of calories and stuff, ate small portions of everything and workout for hours. My menstruation had stopped and I feel exhausted everyday, my parents were worried and so do I. So yeaaaah now, i just dont care anymore WUHAHAHAHAAHHAHAH I stopped working out for 4 months now and eat whatever and whenever I want to :>

  11. She should focus more on increasing the percentage of muscle mass in her body and reducing the amount of body fat. Intensely dieting and exercising every time you gain 1-2kgs isn't a healthy cycle. Also can they stop mentioning that she's dieting for guys?? Like??

  12. People really need to watch their mouth too. I've never thought much about my weight before but after my uncle keep saying "why are you so fat now?" "you should lose weight" everytime he saw me, i started to starving myself in order to lose weight. My self esteem drop really low and i began to feel self conscious, i keep thinking that other people see me as an ugly fat girl and i started to drifted apart from my family

  13. this is anorexia ma'am, we dont develop anorexia just to look cute for a boy, its a whole mental illness

  14. For everyone worrying about professionals, apparently the show does have those that go to work after the show is finished filming

  15. I felt like screaming at the screen that she has an eating disorder
    Are they not allowed to say things like that on the programme just in case?

  16. I who want to lose weight so badly watching this while eating 3 pieces of pizza and 4 pieces of cheese stick 💔😂

  17. (170m = 53kg – 71kg = "green zone")

    170m = ….

    170m = 53kg: She's like on a thin rope between the "green zone" and the "red zone" after the numbers

    170m = 47kg: She's definitely in the "red zone" (after the numbers)

    170m = ….

    BUT JUST TO BE CLEAR: As you know, numbers don't really define anything. Nevertheless the ratio of your body is more important ("the body to the height".

    ("bulky=shape-like=to see abs=and co.")

    THE PROBLEM: By doing sport (or by certain healthy eating), you can also avoid to look like really "bulky/shape-like". Nevertheless you can gain muscles and lose fat (ofc with a healthy feeding). However by a ratio of 170m/54kg people will mostly be like; "That's underweight. He/she is thin,….(after the numbers, yes and no)" and that's the sad/bad part about those kind of body-type-ratio…..either way ("bulky; not bulky") they tend to look "thin".

    And the same goes to someone who is (e.g.) 170m/90kg. But not necessarily
    like "fat, overweight" but more like "Ok, he/she must have alot of muscles" which is also kind of sad, not because they said 'He/she looks really strong'…….but (whether this kind of ratio or the other one) the psyche, you know………………you can even see, that effected her.

    Whether you are (e.g.) 170m and weight 54kg, 62kg, 76kg or 100kg (just whatever) that doesn't define the "health of your body"

    And about her: I mean it's great that she's exercising. However her eating habit/diet (not because she eats sweet potato and co. or just a tiny bit (BUT which is also important), all those lacking of essential vitamins, minerals, proteins and co………well…….

    But I'm glad that she did a body-check.

    ASK ME ANYTHING if you have questions

  18. One thing I hated was that they kept bringing up men. She doesn’t give a shit about men y’all she has an eating disorder. Jesus.

  19. Filming the fat girls in the audience is meannnnn

  20. fk ppl who comment on other ppls weight and appearance lol, they don’t realise how much impact it has on their life

  21. Not this topic again🤦
    They won't expect the fact the person has an eating disorder. Like I know Korea and how their body images work but someone needs to wake them up.

  22. shes not even skinny wtf

  23. why have to find man to have fun? why dieting and exercising for man? why they asked like its our job to please man hm

  24. Bring too thin is as healthy as being morbidly overweight.

  25. 🤔 im 80kg/168cm and these chicks be stressing about 50kg man I haven't seen that weight in years. The way my taste buds are set up I cant deny tasty food. But they need professional support on here because dieting to the extreme is always treated as a joke on this show

  26. I am on a diet right now and it is really funny… When I want to eat something, I try to fit it in my diet. If I can't, I take 2 or 3 bite and force my sister to eat it 😂😂😂 I don't go crazy though. It is like when I crave fries but cant fit the whole box in my diet. I would eat half of it or less and give the rest to my sister.

  27. She needs a diet expert. Eating low Calorie desen't mean losing weight.
    She needs a weight lifting traing and cadio training together.

  28. Finally some of the girls were honest about these crazy diets, and spoke about like it is !❤️

  29. Watched an HBO show on obese people. Yo-yo dieting kills your metabolism forever. 2000 calories that used to maintain your weight will make you gain weight after you screw up your metabolism.

  30. Korean food has so many good side dishes (banchan) that are low calorie. Plus, the soups as well. Just limit the rice intake.

  31. Unfortunately, she and her sister have big faces. Any weight gain even small shows up in their face. Haha, I have that same affliction.

  32. This reminds me of a personal experience. I went to visit my family in another country. When my grandma who hadn’t seen me for 9 years saw me, the first thing she did was say how fat I was as she stared at me with disgust. My weight was constantly a topic of conversation because my family was just being shady. I’m 25, and for most of my life I have always been skinny. I knew I had gained weight, but I never realized how much until that day. Ever since then it has been engrained in me how fat I am and I almost fell into an obsessive cycle of extreme dieting too. Thankfully I have a loving family and friends and I am taking steps to lose weight in a healthier way. She should really seek help and find a more sustainable method. Realistically speaking, can she really live out the rest of her life only eating 4 things on the menu?

  33. A lot of people lost their self esteem because of things others said to them. I think we should spend more time teaching our kids to not take personal everything they hear outside and to be become mentally stronger and build their own identity instead of relying on the media and what others think.

  34. I feel this girl so much. I have had anorexia twice- the first time when I was 11-12 the second time last year. I never went to treatment- it were just my parents who helped me . One thing I can say – even if u go to treatment and gain weight – your mind will never change. I may look healthy now nd others say that I am in great shape but I myself hate my weight- i wanna vut my fat off . I got into anorexia because my dad‘s family always commented about my chubby figure when I was a child. With it came bullying I recieved ever since kindergarden up till now. What I wanna say is. Her goal weight is 52 kg – as soon as she reaches that weight her goal weight will be 48 and so on. You can tell people like her or me that we are slim as much as you want to – it won‘t work out. We won‘t believe u because what we see is different from what you see. Also- be vareful of ur words when u want to help- I know people want to be nice but people suffering from an eating disorder will completly shut down and turn into themselfes if u are to harsh with your words and stuff. About the hairloss- I had it too . Whenever I would watch youtube on my tablet I would have to wipe my fallen out hair off the screen every 2-5 minutes

  35. the younger sister is so annoying… the facial expressions she makes when the older sister is talking triggers me

  36. If they add a professional it would be great but i think people go to this show to know that they will not get professional response but discuss it with normal people, it can also be helpful to get alot of opinion ,if they wanted advise from a professional they could go to one.

  37. If she changed her diet properly and ate healthy and did the right amount of exercise, she'd be the weight she wanted by now. 5 years later!!!!

  38. If you have time, it'll be nice if you stopped to read this comment for a moment. I merely want to raise awareness.

    I empathise with her so much. Just like her, all it took was that one thoughtless comment for me to spiral down into anorexia. It was a joke, but till this date I don't know why it affected me so deeply. All I knew is that I wanted to prove to the person that I wasn't "fat". While people think it's all about dieting and losing weight, it's really not just about that. It's a deeper, underlying mental issue that requires therapy. Hair loss, amenorrhea, feeling weak, I've been through the exact same thing. Of course I knew it was bad, but the voice in my head was stronger. 

    The recovery process is even worse. The pain of seeing your weight increase and yourself not being in control, it's so easy to rebound and go back to controlling the diet. For me, this process took years (almost coming to a decade now), and even now, I still have body image issues, but I've learned to let my negative thoughts pass by. So even after she fixes her diet and gains back her weight, that's only solving the symptoms and not the root cause.

    Anorexia is such a strange thing. People usually think that anorexics don't enjoy eating because they always "starve" themselves, but often times, food is their biggest love. They're obsessed with it. It's like a love-hate relationship full of toxicity.

    To people suffering from eating disorders, it's a tough journey to recovery, but YOU can get there. Somedays your self-worth hits an all-time low, but please don't listen to your negative thoughts! You are NOT your thoughts, you are only the observer of it; don't be trapped by them. I've spent my years lying about my eating disorder, but once I talked to someone I trusted, it becomes easier to accept it. Yes, there are times I regretted sharing with some of my "closest" friends, but don't stop sharing about your experience. Eating disorders, or mental illness in general, shouldn't be something that is to be ashamed of!

    To people who don't understand what eating disorders are, just know that even the simplest jokes can have a profound impact on someone. Be kind with your words and exercise less judgement on others. The world would be a happier place.

  39. 그거 병이에요 병이라구요!!!!!!!! ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ 한국사람들 다이어트강박증에 대해 되게 가볍게 여기시는데 이건 우율중의 한 카테고리이며 정신과상담이 필요해요…. 폭식증 거식증은 사람을 피말려 죽이는 무서운 병이에요 안녕하세요에 나오는 고민자 상담자분들중에
    특히 여성분들 중에 본인의 몸을 학대하고 살을빼는거에 집착하셔서 일상생활 못하시는 분들 너무 많이 나와요…. 상담 한번이라도 받아주세요 마음의 병은 제때 고치지 못하면 정말 큰일나요 저런분들 보면 괜히 눈물나여,,,

  40. It seems that she is not satisfied with her appearance, especially her looks. That's why she went diet but I think it didn't help at all.

  41. When she said about chicken breast sddnly it reminds me about kjk..and they really did talk about kjk..

  42. Please get some professional expert for these kind of topics cause not every female works out or diet their butts off just to impress Male. Sometime it's just for their own satisfaction and sometime there really is a problem.

  43. Seriously she needs help. It's so much more than just dieting, she has eating disorder and she is not even happy, meaning she is prone to mental illness. She doesn't even love herself. How could these people not think that this is a problem simply because she's 'abiding' with the beauty standards Korea has? I was once like her and it took me years, with lots of help, for me to accept that health means more than weight. She needs help immediately

  44. i am a lot like this girl… i wish i can be confident in my body someday and not obsess over my weight all the time. i wish the same for this girl

  45. I really needed to watch this, I’m also suffering with what I believe is another ED.
    I’m overweight, but I’ve been so obsessed with it, that I find myself starving myself. Most days I do not eat all day, and I may eat dinner. Sometimes I don’t.
    Most days I have less than 1000 calories.

  46. She looks like shes about to collapse she is depressed and suffers from a phobia of gaining weight and has an addiction to this there's alot of trauma she needs to get treated for in theraphy also she needs to eat especially if shes working out man i feel so bad for her wish i can hug her.

  47. You can hear through her voice that her body needs to be fed more. You can just listen to her and kinda know somethings off. She is thin but she isn’t happy..

    People in the comments are saying there needs to be professionals on this show. Keep in mind that Korea is way more conservative and may or may not have a different way to handle things? (Please correct me if I’m wrong). I did hear that they have professionals after the shooting is over for some help though.

  48. How is starving yourself and nearly dying not a concern? Da fuk

  49. 7:40 YES YES YES BTS

  50. not even a professional but from just reading the title i knew what it was…
    i hope they do get one bet how many of their guessed going home being worse

  51. Exercise addict is a mental disorder

  52. She's underweight for her height. Also, i noticed her voice is hoarse, does she force her vomit out? like what models do.

  53. Guess what, I'm 53kg and 1,70 cm too. When someone says that I gained weight I have a really big smile on my face, and because of that I eat a lot but exercise too. I was crazy when she said that she wanted to be skinnier. Btw, I'm about to eat a pizza bye ;v

  54. I was like her before. I was 52kg (I'm 171cm) and went on an intense diet in high school for a year and boy did I regret it. I went down to 44kg in less than a month. I lost weight, yes, but my body was messed up. My menstruation stopped and I couldn't exercise for more than 15min without feeling faint. My parents were worried. I didn't know why I wanted to lose weight, I just felt like I needed to.The old me weighed and compared myself everyday to 45-49kg idols. I guess that's how my mentality crashed. I thought I needed to be like that to look good (I know I was stupid :P). Nowww I weigh 52-53kg and I'm happy with it. I eat whatever I want and exercise became a hobby rather than a necessity. My body is now healthier than it's ever been and I'm proud of it 🙂

  55. SHE HAS AN EATING DISORDER. why is no one reacting seriously to this🤦🏽‍♀️. She’s not on a diet she literally has anorexia

  56. Y'all like to label things and blow things up, the show here isn't to stigmatise people and call them out for being bad or wrong in some way (unlike Western shows); it's here for emotional support and showing understanding rather than labelling people with different diseases

  57. Are this people out of their mind? How is this not a Concern?! They need professional advise, not comedian advise.

  58. As a nutrition student….. I'm just very triggered kkkkkkkk

  59. I think we also need to take into consideration that Korea is a country with very unrealistic body expectations for woman not saying that other countries aren’t like this too but I’ve seen concerns where first they wanted the person to lose weight and once they did they wanted them to stop and gain

  60. in NO WAY am i invalidating her but i feel like she purges quite often judging from her cheeks. cheeks swell up from constant purging. poor girl i hope she recovers. (like i said, im not invalidating whatever eating disorder she has).

    ALL eating disorders are life threatening. please do not take it lightly. (Eating disorders DO NOT have an image. You can be at any weight and still suffer from anorexia. It’s the behaviour. The thoughts. The actions.)

    sending love her way🎈

  61. Dieting is not necessary if she’s already tall and thin.

    And also, I’m notice that whenever she said about her weight…that she has unbalanced metabolism because of not enough nutrient in her body and protein.

    PS: I’m not much knowledge about nutrition but I did learned some of it in organic chemistry class.

  62. Not all women lose weight to get attention from men. >:(

  63. The sister is literally in a good or almost perfect weight and size rn. She should just eat normally but still excercise sometimes. Cutting out protein like meat is a huge no. And rice?? thats literally a huge part of our life. I cant believe some people is so obessesed with looking good till they forget their own health smh

  64. Its seriously a long shot but I hope someone from KBS pays attention to this but, Hello Counselor needs to be canceled or start taking these issues SERIOUSLY depression/ mental issues exist! They are real things and some of these people that come on the show need actual help! Hello Counselor is very popular and I feel like if they start doing things the right way it can slowly help S.Korea as a whole to view depression/mental illness like it is and take it more seriously. Things must change over there. Jonghyun was told by a DOCTOR that his depression was just apart of his personality and ignored it! As a result he is now not with us… THINGS MUST CHANGE

  65. 이 비디오는 AB6IX에 관한 것임을 알고 있습니다. 그러나이 말은 진지하게 오래 걸리지 만 KBS의 누군가가 이것에주의를 기울이기를 바랍니다. 그러나 Hello Counselor를 취소하거나 이러한 문제를 해결하기 시작해야합니다! 그들은 실제적인 것들이며 쇼에 나오는 사람들 중 일부는 실제 도움이 필요합니다! 안녕하세요 카운슬러는 매우 인기가 많으며, 한국이 우울증 / 정신병과 같은 상황을보다 심각하게 받아 들일 수 있도록 천천히 한국을 도울 수있는 올바른 방법으로 일을 시작한다고 생각합니다. 거기에서 상황이 바뀌어야합니다. 종현은 의사 에 의해 그의 우울증이 그의 성격과는 거리가 있으며 그것을 무시했다고 들었습니다! 결과적으로 그는 지금 우리와 함께하지 않습니다 … 것들은 변경해야합니다

  66. And i have 165cm And 61 kg but my fat IS only on my face And butt something on my Belly And thanx to korean People i do think i need a diet becouse i never knew About how fat i am before i look on People from korea

  67. Right now I’m at 166 pounds and I need to drop to 130 because it’s a requirement for my height to be able to join the USMC. I workout for about 4 hours a day. I get that she’s not satisfied with how she looks because I’m the same way but it’s better to do it in a more balanced way. Such as eating the right amount of food and keep it balanced. I try not eat more than 3 meals a day. And honestly it’s working for me. I’m energized whenever I workout and I don’t need to take any supplements because I use my meals to do its job.

  68. I only eat 100 calories per day..

  69. Not at me laughing at how Korea literally promotes being skinny and suddenly surprised and concerned when someone is obsessed over it

  70. 53kg at 170cm :0

  71. Another stupid problem..

  72. diets don't work. It has be a lifestyle. fad diets leads to yoyo dieting

  73. Let me just say this: as of right now I am in my pajamas, laying in my bed, while eating ice cream with caramel sauce & blondie chunks while watching this episode. And I’m more than likely much happier than this woman who’s on a diet right now.🍨😋🖥🛌 Living the dream!

  74. She's my height and weighs 10lbs less than me😭 (she's like 120ish and I'm a bit over 130)

  75. Shes literally me. Found nothing enjoyable anymore and just going to the gym and dieting. Not meeting friends and stay home all day .. going clubbing to get drunk with some friends just to escape life 😂

  76. im like her sister ,170 cm,48kg, but my face Chubby,i don’t know what’s wrong with my face dahh

  77. Maybe all the international fans should write to/ petition the show for professional evaluation of these cases. Humor is great, but I've seen countless cases which are gravely concerning. Also, we don't get an update of the past cases, who knows whether things have gotten better or worse.

  78. "Girls try to look prettier when they like a guy"


  79. omg i could never stop eating white rice🥴

  80. everyone's commenting on how they wish they took this more seriously but lol this show isnt designed to do that. this show is designed for entertainment and everyone is aware of that. if the sister sent in her concern to this show hoping to get actual professional help, then that's on her, not the show. everyone knows how this show is designed, for the most part it's designed to be comedic, they literally have COMEDIANS as hosts for that reason, but even then i still see the hosts truly giving advice to the best they can when they do encounter serious ones.

  81. Anyone noticed that her voice is kind of shaky too? Idk if her diet lifestyle has affected the way she sounds, but if it does, its just so sad that she's been living like that to keep in shape. Indeed yes, the show needs professional help, but considering that its a variety show which is supposed to entertain people, not sure they'd use them and let them to be in the show. Imagine if they happens to be in the show and they just make everything sounds so serious and make people become even more anxious and wary about their condition. That's not the ideal of the variety show though. But I heard somewhere that they send these peeps in need to professional after the show. Hopefully they can get better!

  82. What she need to change not her weight but they way she stand, she look like a akward men . The way she talk, and her hair style. Please someone who know her tell her this .

    I'm so pissed when weight being a problem to look "cute" for the boy. Chubby/fat person also had their beautiful side. Not all of them are ugly. Some of it not ugly but lazy

  83. This show and just korean society in general is normalising this eating disorder behaviour into a diet. This is a serious matter.

  84. That is anorexia people send her to a professionnal.

  85. This show is really stupid. Do they not know that there are MANY girls around Korea that have trouble with their bodies…..please use real help for these people instead of comedians

  86. Girlie has an eating disorder and severe lack of nutrients that cause hair and teeth loss, not to mention it interrupts her period. She needs medical treatment, not a talking show.

  87. Sounds like orthorexia or anorexia :/ she needs medical help

  88. Dear Hello Counselor/KBS, I have a concern, most likely together with almost everyone in this comment section.

    My concern is as follows: in your show we just watched a young woman who shows all the signs of a full blown eating disorder. Her family worries, and with good reason. But it seems you brush the problem off with some nice, positive words.

    Mind you that positive talk alone is not proper treatment for an eating disorder.
    Anorexia nervosa is not a joke, it's a serious condition with a mortality rate of ~10%, which makes it more lethal than some types of cancer. Please do not embarrass yourself to the world, and reassure us that KBS has provided this family with real help after the show.

  89. Idk about anyone else but her voice sounds like she either is bulimic or she WAS her voice is very shaky and unstable and while there are people like that naturally she has really bad teeth. Looking at those aspects are concerning.

  90. As somebody who had Anorexia I can only say; it's very dangeroud what she's doing right now, but even so I never said ; don't eat this or that to other people, their life, their decisions.

  91. They need an specialist there or to stop taking cases that they can't not handle correctly. They keep asking if she diets to look good for guys or if she wants to be healthy and stuff but they dont understand how an eating disorder works. Painful to watch.

  92. She needs a professional and proper education on nutrition and exercise as well as mental health, she doesn't take into factor that she literally lacks muscle. She should just focus on getting stronger and gain muscle worry less about weight/ the number on the scale, these days it's not the best way to determine health especially if you are at the normal weight. On top of that, she definitely has disordered eating habits.

  93. this aint dieting, this is full on jaiden animations stuff (look it up)

  94. Loved the girls at the beginning being so honest that for comebacks they starve themselves but is the worst diet for binge eating, i hope all idols could be this honest too

  95. Sounds like aneroxia.. Eating disorder clinic… She needs this

  96. men really dont have to be the reason for diet. i have no interest in romance but have to go to the hospital a lot bc of extreme dieting. why? because i dont feel valid unless i weigh a certain amount

  97. I kinda relate to her, I was also skinny in 7-8 grade and when I enter to highschool I was slowly growing up and gain weight which is normal and also I run into a neighborhood and said the same thing " oo you gain some weight, you look pretty". I didn't got into a extreme diet but I understand her it's hard to take as a compliment

  98. Why does everyone think unseasoned chicken breat is the ultimate diet food?

  99. It’s far more a concern when people are saying this isn’t a concern.HELLO, THIS IS CLEARLY ANOREXIA. This dieting and chasing for ideal body culture in korea is really insane and it’s even more infuriating that they don’t realise the very fact that this culture is being far too normalised. It is mentally and physically unhealthy, and a tragedy for many women out there. I just hope that they’ll start loving their body a little more and magnify the goodness in them, the body they’re endowed with from their dear parents. Hope they’ll stop being solely focussed on any slight difference they have from what is being portrayed on social media and magazines.

  100. what's the point of doing muscle training if you don't eat after ? you'll just lose your muscles instead
