Broadcaster reveals getting liposuction after weight-loss fail


Kim Ji-yun

Broadcaster Kim Ji-yun shared her efforts to lose weight after she weighed more than 70 kilograms, or 154 pounds, on cable channel JTBC's talk show "Secret Garden" on Sunday.

"After the end of the Miss Korea pageant, I weighed over 70 kilograms at one point and I had to be on a diet all the time," she said. She received the highest honor at the pageant back in 1997.

"I was so stressed from being overweight; there were no diet measures I didn't try."

In the end, she decided to get liposuction after failing to lose weight from trying many different weight-watching programs.

"I was sedated with anesthetics, but I still felt aching pain in my thighs, and I just got up shouting that it hurts too much," she said, adding that she didn't know that she was in a clinic with no legal license to practice such surgery.

She said she was the skinniest condition in her life when she was competing in the beauty pageant.

"After that, I was never under 60 kilograms until recently, as I now weigh [little less than 60]," she said.
