Rainbow‘s Jaekyung recently talked about her trainee days, when she had to go through weekly weigh-ins.

On the August 29 broadcast of SBS‘s “Same Bed, Different Dreams,” a teenage girl who is on an excessive diet and her worried mother appeared as guests.

On the broadcast, Jaekyung begins, “When we were training for Rainbow, they used to weigh us and then post up our weights on the company bulletin.”

She breaks hearts when she confesses, “That was so stressful that before the weight checks, I would clip my nails and spit.” She adds, “Since I couldn’t cut my hair for styling reasons, I tried to get rid of water weight.”
