When Momo Ate Only Ice - Toxic Body Image in Kpop

There was time where Momo skipped eating for 7 days. Yes, 7 days and she ate ice cubes whenever she felt hungry to keep her weight under control. This is just one instance of idols Who have gone to extreme measures to lose weight, only to fit the ridiculously standards upheld by their industry and society. Yo-yo dieting isn't uncommon nor is idols collapsing and struggling with their body image. Idols like Wendy, Ailee, Xiumin and Jimin have also spoken about these issues. Is it not high time they started being treated like actual humans with needs? What do you think about this issue? Does it need to stop or is following rigorous schedules a good way to maintain discipline?
