CIX’s Bae Jin Young Shares What Made Him Stop His Past Unhealthy Diet
CIX’s Bae Jin Young spoke about his dieting experience on Channel A’s “Why Did You Come To My House?” (literal title).
On the July 28 episode, rookie boy group CIX appeared as guests and revealed their dorm.
While eating together in the living room, Super Junior’s Kim Heechul began, “You have to diet constantly when you’re an idol. Even though I was always hungry after doing camera rehearsals, live performances, and variety shows, I just endured it.”
After stating that he only ate raw tofu at the time, Kim Heechul added, “I feel really worried whenever I see idols fainting.”
CIX’s Hyunsuk asked Bae Jin Young, “Didn’t you also faint because you starved yourself?” and Bae Jin Young replied “Yes.” The cast members were surprised to hear this, and Hyunsuk explained, “He wanted to appear really thin onscreen during Wanna One promotions and didn’t eat anything. He said that he fainted two or three times because of anemia.”
Bae Jin Young added, “I think you get anemia a lot when you don’t eat. I don’t diet like that anymore.”
CIX recently released their first album “HELLO Chapter 1. Hello Stranger” and is promoting their debut track “Movie Star.”
