SNSD appeared on SBS “Strong Heart” on November 8 and addressed rumors surrounding their infamous “SNSD Diet Plan.” Despite consistent denials from SNSD, the rumored diet plan – comprised of few pieces of broccoli, vegetables, chicken breast, and brown rice – has garnered massive attention for the small amount of food and calorie consumption.
Yuri started off by saying the “SNSD Diet Plan,” which had the group consume only 1,500 kcal per day, was the most frustrating rumor they heard as a group. She said the members initially thought the rumor meant “1,500 kcal per meal.”
Tiffany added, “I think we often eat 3,000 kcal for a single meal. Our managers tell us, ‘Your (SNSD’s) food expenses are higher than Super Junior’s!”
Lee Seung Ki followed up by asking whether SNSD munches on late-night snacks. Yuri shared a story of getting fried chicken delivered in less than 15 minutes. One day, Kara’s Goo Hara called Jessica and asked if the chicken SNSD sponsors were any good (SNSD is the model for “Gubne Chicken”). That prompted the girls to have chicken that night, so they called a local “Gubne Chicken” store. However, “Gubne” said the delivery would take at least an hour because of other orders.
SNSD, who was too hugry to wait another hour, called back and told the owner, “We’re SNSD.” But the owner didn’t believe the girls and just hung up on them. The girls got mad (they’re the main model of “Gubne” after all!) and called back the owner again. This time, however, all the girls gathered around the phone, and sang the main theme song of the “Gubne Chicken” commercial over the phone. After hearing the impromptu live performance, the shocked (and happy!) owner of “Gubne” delivered the fried chicken within 15 minutes!
