Ladies Code’s So Jung Suffered from Anorexia and Hated Herself for Wanting Food
Ladies Code’s So Jung, who admitted that she suffered from anorexia, talked a little about her painful experience.
On the August 3 broadcast of SBS’ Incarnation, Yang Dong Geun, Jung Joon, Oh Yoon Ah, and Ladies Code’s So Jung and Kwon Lise appeared as guests.
During the broadcast, So Jung shared, “Up until my appearance on Voice of Korea, I’ve never been told that I was fat. But when I saw myself coming out on television, I was shocked. So I started dieting and ended up developing anorexia.”
“When I was on Voice of Korea, I weighed around 49 kg. Afterwards, I went as low as 38 kg. I’m currently recovering and weigh over 40 kg.”
Continuing her story, she said, “During my diet, I didn’t eat any food. I didn’t eat and just exercised. I just drank water all day, and there was a time when I ate five cherry tomatoes for 2-3 days.”
So Jung added, “I hated that I wanted to eat food. I even looked at my stomach and said, ‘I’m not hungry. Why are you doing this?’”
“Because I didn’t eat, my body felt like it was breaking even when I was wiping it with a towel. I also didn’t get my period for over a year, so I went to the hospital and the doctors told me my body was like that of a fifth grader,” explained So Jung. “My hormone levels were so low that I was like a woman going through menopause. The doctors told me that if I don’t gain 5 kg in body fat, things might get dangerous.”
So Jung said that she began eating again and currently has 5 kg of body fat. She reassured everyone that she’s eating well and on the road to recovery.
