Girls’ Generation member Yuri recently revealed that she once suffered from severe atopy.
On the December 20 episode of SBS‘s “How to Eat and Live Well,” Yuri explained that she always carries around her own food. The reason for it, she said, was because just before debut she suffered from a severe bout of atopy, a condition otherwise known as being hyperallergic.
“My eyes would get itchy and have discharge, so I couldn’t even wear makeup,” Yuri said. “My mother and I sat down and discussed it, and we decided to change my diet. After that, my condition improved, so since then, I make or buy my own healthy food and take it with me.”
The episode broadcasted on at 8:20 a.m. KST.
