It’s okay to admit that most of us are attracted by the looks of an idol or an idol group first, then perhaps move on to the less good-looking ones because of their talent. Which, what it means in the intelligent companies’ ears, means that guys need to be either adorable or chocolate muscles from head to toe, and girls to be thin, and preferably tall. If any fans sees a single picture that falls out of the picture, their company squeezes the fat out of them, if there’s any at all.
So let’s look at some of the idols that just look scarily skinny on television (considering I never had the luck to see them in person…), and could run off to our Mr. Lee Jinki (aka Onew from SHINee) for a bucket of chicken. Fried, that is.
So here’s the list! (in no particular order)
1. YoonA from SNSD
This girl has small teeth, small waist, small wrists, long, thin legs, small face…you can’t find no fat in this girl. YoonA’s slim body has rocked many pairs of skinny jeans for SPAO, but really, I find no possible way for me to squeeze half of my leg into what YoonA wears normally. It’s either my legs are too fat and chubby, or YoonA’s is just too thin and slim. I’d rather believe the latter.
2. Jaekyung from Rainbow
I don’t know much about Rainbow, but I have seen quite a few pictures of our dear Jaekyung that is thinner than the electric poles outside my house that could barely cover half of me. Her shoulders are thin, her legs are thin, her face is thin, her arms are thin. What choices do we have but to agree? She really is thin.
3. Yuri from SNSD…after the sudden weight loss
Yuri used to top almost everyone’s chart on having the best bodies (I know there’s Bora and Kahi, but that’s not the case right now.) And since SNSD members almost always wear the same thing for their performances, it’s obvious to see that Yuri really rocks those clothes pretty darn well. HOWEVER, some people just HAD to pressure her into dieting and losing her weight. Well ARE YOU HAPPY NOW? Yuri is now probably as thin as fellow member YoonA, and now nobody is going to show us the curvy version of SNSD clothes.
^See Yuri, your weight loss = REJECTED.
4. Hyomin from T-ara
The SNSD Jessica look-a-like (well, in my opinion) really has a good-looking body. I actually had some struggles putting her on the list, but well, she really has some pretty thin legs with a pretty light weight and a pretty small (and beautiful) face. She is lighter than her fellow member Boram, who is over 10cm shorter than Hyomin. So I don’t see why she doesn’t make the list. So ta-da, here’s Hyomin!
5. Taemin from SHINee
Woohoo! Our first male idol who made the list! See, lots of male idols out there are pretty underweight, but since they’re usually the adorable type, I barely notice them. However, SHINee’s maknae Taemin just hits the list with his ultra-thin body and his ultra-thin legs. And with his Lucifer long hair, it looks like he could trade places with Amber from f(x). Beautiful face plus his incredibly thin body, makes a girl jealous.
6. Hara from KARA
Hara is often seen on lists with female idols with extremely thin legs. And I don’t think anyone would be too surprised to see her here. According to the official profile, (which has a pretty big chance of being fake, but we’ll stick with it anyways) she is around at least 5kg lighter than most female idols out there who are at her height. Her legs are like two crayons stack together, especially when she wears colorful skinny jeans.
^see what I mean?
7. HyunA from 4minute
News (or perhaps rumors) about HyunA’s scary light weight during her Bubble Pop promotions had been flying around like eagles at the beach, and had also boost her all the way up to this list. She is tall and beautiful, but her weight had dropped all the way to 39kg during the promotions. I am not exactly sure how much of her original weight she has gotten back, but well let’s have our fingers crossed that she is greatly healthy, and the numbers 39 will never appear on her weight scales ever again.
8. Siwan from ZE:A
I hadn’t been paying too much attention on the ZE:A boys in the past, but they are absolutely adorable during one of the fan meets I’ve watched, and since the uploader was a Siwan bias, I couldn’t but notice how small and petite he looks among Cpop idol group Fahrenheit. Definitely cute, but so small and thin it’s impossible (or perhaps it’s just the other guys are too tall). But well he has definitely left the cute–but too thin–impression in my head so well, welcome Siwan to the list!
9. Ryeowook from Super Junior
Our adorable, eternal maknae of Super Junior. Wookie had been in the adorable circle ever since their debut, small and cute compared to some of the other members (like Siwon and Kyuhyun), along with the aegyo master Sungmin. However, his aegyo partner Sungmin had ditched him and went over the the more manly and Shisus side ever since the Bonamana muscle-training session, which Wookie seemed not too successful in …he’s too thin!
Perhaps it was because of his earlier days as a trainee which he had to jump rope 1000 times a day to lose weight, but really, you can see his cheeks a bit sinking in, showing a bit of his skull shape (is that what you call it? Because it sounds a bit weird). And that definitely places him on part of the list.
10. Dara from 2NE1
Now last but not least, is our Dara from 2NE1 (actually, she takes first place for the list. Saving best for last!). I swear to God, she has almost nothing but bones on her. Too skinny to be true! Not only does she fit any skinny jeans in this world, perhaps even hoses from the fire department. THAT’s how thin her legs are. I get worried every time I watch her jump around and dance and stuff. It just doesn’t make sense why my legs are shorter than hers but at least four times wider. Jealousy wave coming~~
BONUS: Sooyoung from SNSD
It had been a struggle for me to decide whether to include Sooyoung. She’s not really part of the list, because we all know that our Sooyoung eats a lot. Yet her weight really is quite low for someone her height. She’s even thinner than fellow member Sunny, who is, you know, at least 15cm shorter than Sooyoung. But what can you say? Sooyoung already eats around 6 to 7 times a day and still manages to look like a stick. I suppose some people are just born to be more good-looking than others. *shrugs and sighs*
I know there are lots of other idols out there who also need to rob Onew for some chicken, and these are just some of them. You almost can’t find a single female idol that’s underweight. (except for Piggy Dolls.) So what if the girls have some belly fat? So what if the guys don’t have the Shisus-abs? So what if the girls don’t have legs that look like bamboos? It’s not like that’s all we care about those idols. They work like there’s no day and night difference, and just give them some rest and LET THEM EAT!!
Onew: Always eating like a boss.
