Popular Korean actress Lee Tae-Im, previously known for her curves and overall healthy image, left panelists stunned after they quickly noticed her extremely slim physique when she appeared on an episode of MBC Every1’s “Video Star”; a show dedicated to spring and celebrities with fit bodies.
The young actress admitted to undergoing an extreme diet for the last six months, during which she only ate three spoons of rice per day.
She confessed that she felt insecure about her look after a photo-shoot with fellow actresses Park Han-Byul and Lee Chae-Young, both of whom were in much better shape than her.
“I did the photo shoot with actress Park Han-Byul and Lee Chae-Young, who showed up with perfectly toned bodies. I became ashamed of my body and was embarrassed to stand next to them. I got so upset that I cried,” Lee Tae-Im said during the TV show.
She revealed her diet is extremely dangerous and warned others not to follow in her footsteps.
While she admits that her diet was definitely not a healthy one, advising people not follow her example, Lee still considers it a natural, if extreme, diet. She just wanted to lose weight fast so she would appear beautiful on screen as an actress, and did what she felt she had to do to achieve that.
