TWICE Member Momo Had No Choice But To Lose 7kg Before Debut
If you thought that life was easy for TWICE members who seem to have everything, you were wrong.
Momo recently shared her experience going through a difficult moment in her life that had something to do with health and diet on V App live stream session.
Before her debut with TWICE, her agency told her that she would have to lose 7kg in just a week if she wanted to appear in a showcase. That meant she would have to lose 1kg per day.
Unfortunately for her, she told TWICE members and the viewers that she had no choice but to starve herself and work out at the gym until the day of the showcase. She even considered depriving herself of water and drinking because she thought the liquid in her body would prevent her from weighing less. She went on to share how she would wake up in the middle of the night scared and wondering if she’ll be able to wake up again the next day.
She was unable to lose 7kg in seven days and requested to have three more days to meet the weight limit. The agency granted her another three days and she eventually lost the weight demanded by the agency.
Many fans and viewers have expressed outrage over the way Momo was treated by saying entertainment agencies must manage their artists’ health in a proper way.
