Karina, from KPOP girl group aespa, is widely admired for her flawless visuals and slender physique, which often leads fans and netizens to assume she has a small appetite. Maintaining a slim figure is a well-known expectation for many K-pop idols, leading to strict dietary regimens and discussions among fans.
The general assumption is that idols consume minimal amounts of food to preserve their lean appearances. However, Karina has recently shattered these expectations by showcasing an impressive and surprising appetite, much to the delight of viewers.
She made an appearance on rapper Lee Young Ji’s YouTube show, ‘No Prepare,’ where she revealed the secrets behind her diet routine. To everyone’s surprise, Karina confessed her love for eating and shared that she dedicates four hours to working out in order to manage her weight.
Following her appearance on the show, the attention of K-netizens was drawn to Karina’s eating habits. One netizen took to social media and shared various videos and photos showcasing the amount of food Karina consumes, which pleasantly surprised everyone.
In one video, Karina was live streaming with her fans when she mentioned that she had reduced her food intake, only to then proceed to devour four Krispy Kreme donuts. She playfully explained that she used to be able to consume six donuts in one sitting but can now manage only four.
The netizen who initiated the online post even humorously commented that Karina’s enthusiasm for food is so great that she even eats the paper wrapping around her sandwich.
Additionally, the fan shared photos of the meals that Karina and her group, aespa, enjoyed together.
Other K-netizens were both impressed by Karina’s capacity for food and pleased to see that she does not starve herself but rather focuses on exercise to maintain her weight. Comments from netizens included praise such as:
