So I was reading Kyuhyun confessions on tumblr, and I came across a few confessions that were like, "I don't get why Kyuhyun gets called fat even though he's the 3rd heaviest in SJ" or "I don't think it's because he doesn't show his stomach just because of his scar"
I looked it up and I saw that he's 69 kg (which is roughly 159 pounds)
How the hell is that fat?
I mean, he's 5'11, and he's 69 kg...That's pretty healthy, if you ask me... Not to mention, he dances, a lot. So most of it is muscle since (if some of you didn't know) muscle weighs more than fat.
But then again, I go to the asian side of my and go, "Yeah, that's understandable" because Asians are really...Ruthless(?) so to speak when it's about weight. And this is coming from me who was told constantly by my famliy that I was fat, and by my family's friends, and by the people in the church who give me advice on ways to lose weight. I'm always compared to someone skinner than my by the Asian people I know (that don't go to the same school as me). I mean, I get fat comments a lot.
Honestly, now I see why Kyuhyun never shows his stomach (in which I'm soo happy he doesn't because I would feel very awkward if he did like how I am whenever Siwon does it)
He was overweight in high school, nicknamed "Chubby thing", had people enjoy kicking his butt, people making fun of his weight, and countless fans tell him that he's fat since he's the 3rd heaviest in Super Junior, not to mention, he's a celebirty, which makes the comments even more ruthless.
Maybe I'm just overthinking this because I'm in the same situation since you'll never see me wear anything sleeveless or tummy showing, or short shorts.
But still, Kyuhyun's pretty normal. Maybe it's the American version of my that's saying this because to me, he looks skinny. Amazingly skinny.
Sometimes, I wish I would get off my lazy arse and learn Korean just so that I can tell him that.
