Fans Are Concerned After LOONA’s Yeojin Reveals Her Shockingly Low Weight And Diet Advice
Recently, LOONA‘s Yeojin shared information about her weight on Instagram that left fans concerned.
Known for her slender figure, a fan came to her for diet advice.
She answered a fan’s question asking for a diet tip and posted a screenshot of her scale, revealing her weight to be 34.2 kg (about 75.4 lbs).
Q: What’s a pro tip for dieting?
YJ: Not eating
Despite being only 148 cm (4’10”), her BMI of 15.6 is still considered underweight as it is under a BMI of 18.5.
Many netizens found her post not only disturbing, but also viewed it as a potential danger to young or impressionable fans.

I love yeojin but it's very concerning and sad that she continues to push unhealthy dieting tips on fans and also feels the need to discuss her weight/size a lot. Someone needs to sit her down and tell her what is and isn't appropriate to share

Even considering her short height, many netizens agreed that the number on the scale is still quite low.
- “She’s so short… but she’s also thin”
- “I rubbed my eyes and looked again”
- “Me too.. I knew her height was short but I didn’t think she would be this skinny”
- “She’s very short”
- “No but a height of 148cm and weighing 34kg is too skinny..”
However, many fans are not blaming Yeojin as she has once revealed her troublesome past related to dieting and weight loss stemming from the harsh rules of Blockberry Creative (BBC) during her predebut period.

i hate orbits so much. saying that yeojin needs to be “held accountable” and is “promoting” an ED. If you think it’s ok to blame someone with an ED for having IRRATIONAL THOUGHTS ABOUT THEIR OWN WEIGHT, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Yall are fucking stupid fr

Though nobody knows the truth except for Yeojin, fans wish the best for her and hope she can continue to stay healthy.
