Korean Stars: a Metabolism to Die For

2006/01/25 | Permalink | Source

Korean stars seem blessed with a metabolism that allows them to laugh at portions which would make others blanch. China's ( Open the link ) website under the heading "Female Korean Stars Eat a Lot" claims Jun Ji-hyun, Jeong Da-bin and Kim Tae-hee are careless about how much they eat but have no problem maintaining their figure.

"In Jeon's film 'My Sassy Girl', she brought such a loveable character to the screen that fans just haven't been able to forget her", the site gushes. "In spite of her 48 kg weight, Jeon is a surprisingly big eater capable of putting away two brimful bowls of rice along with four dishes. Because of this, her friends have taken to calling her a glutton".

Kim Tae-hee, who only weighs 45 kg, is famous for having a sweet tooth as well as consuming big portions, the site reveals. "When Kim was on a visit to Taiwan last August, she liked sweet things so much that she practically lived on cookies", it says. "At the time, Kim said she wasn't too worried about her love for sweets because she always tried to get in shape by exercising".

Jeong Da-bin, who weighs 43 kg, also suprises people with the big portions she consumes, it said.
