On the May 29th broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s “Win Win“, BoA said that she believes the reason she’s short is because she had to lose weight when she was young.
“They told me to lose weight a lot,” she said. “It wasn’t fat; it was baby fat. When you’re in junior high, you’re supposed to eat a lot and grow, so it’s only natural that I didn’t grow because they told me to lose weight.”
“I think I’m going to be grieving about this for the rest of my life,” she added.
The emcees then agreed with her saying, “Junior high is a time for you to be develop and grow, not a time to lose weight.”
I’m sure there’s a modicum of truth to what she said, but come on, you’re just genetically short. I mean, it’s not like every child star comes out to be a 4’0″ dwarf or whatever she is.
