U-ie was quite a hearty eater as a child.
On June 24th, the singer guested on SBS’s ‘Dalgona‘ alongside former baseball player, Yang Jun Hyuk, and had the opportunity to visit her hometown with the studio audience.
On the broadcast, U-ie’s older sister, Kim Yoo Na, stated, “U-ie over ate quite a bit. Usually, U-ie would look for kimchi and pork belly as soon as she woke up. She was a part of the swimming department when she was in school, and she also ate a lot after practice. Two hamburgers were a given, and she even had dukbokgi (rice cakes) and ice cream for dessert.”
She continued, “The reason why U-ie’s body is so fit is because she ate and exercised a lot as a child.” To this, U-ie added, “I burned so many calories back then that I was able to get away with eating so much and not gain any weight.”
Meanwhile, the MCs jokingly asked, “Is U-ie the female Kang Ho Dong?” which made the audience burst into laughter.
