Diets seem to be required for all group members.

Many girl groups have shared their diet tips and revealed their meal plans on their SNS accounts. The A Pink members were no exception, who also had to go on diets before making a comeback, while A Pink’s Cho Rong’s diet plan once gathered a lot of public attention as well.

In a recent interview with Newsen, Cho Rong said, “I think that was two days before filming our music video. I packed my meals then, but I don’t eat like that anymore.” Then A Pink went on to explain why dieting is a must.

When asked if keeping up their bodies is hard, A Pink said, “We got used to it. The diet became a lot less harsh now but since we have to keep in shape, we feel nervous on the days we eat a lot. The company used to pressure us but now we self-manage our body.”

A Pink added, “When we first debuted, the people at the agency would tell us, ‘You should feel thankful that we’re forcing you to diet now. You’ll want to diet yourself later on,’ and now we understand why.”

The reason is because of monitoring.

Cho Rong claimed, “When we monitor, we can’t help but to put ourselves on a diet. I can tell right away even if my face is just a little puffed up,” and Jung Eun Ji said, “Since the public sees us through the media, there’s a standardized appearance of us. It motivates us to diet when we monitor.”

“The fans know too. They know right away if we put on a little weight. When we gain weight, the fans tell us to lose it and when we lose weight, they tell us to gain it again,” said A Pink, with laugher.

Then Bo Mi, who is often seen eating food on MBC Every1’s Weekly Idol, brought out laughter by saying, “That’s why I get quiet when we talk about weight these days.”

Meanwhile, A Pink’s new song Mr. Chu is a pop dance song that expresses the fluttering heart before sharing a first kiss with a loved one.
