Shindong’s Comment About Chubby Girls in ShimShimTaPa; Tweets

On January 29th simsim tapa, there was a female radio listener called to the show and shared the story about her decision of being on a diet started from new year. She told her boyfriend about that decision and her bf said to her “Dont start if you will quit after only few days. Your body cant change just because of diet”.

Kim Shinyoung said “Saying something about a girl’s weight is like asking for a punch” and one of the guest said “I will say you dont need to lose weight. She needs the love/affection so I will take the method of exercising with her”

Shindong said “I will say let’s lose weight if they need to lose weight. Lose some weights, you cant take care of yourself. And if that person tells me , I will say ” in which both Kim Shinyoung & announcer Koo Eunyoung said “Why it has anything to do with girl or boy ? girls should be slim and boys are…”, then Shindong said “I only said because honestly, I just want the person whom I love to be prettier and more beautiful”.

But after the radio was aired, what Shindong said became a topic on a community site, together with what Yesung and Leeteuk had said before about chubby girls on MBC “Quiz to change the world”. On that show, Leeteuk said “I really dont like fat girls because they seems not to know how to take care of themselves” and Yesung said “Very fat people are lazy”.

Netizens said “I cant understand his statement that boys can be chubby but girls can not”, “How can he say that while he received a lot of love because his chubby charming”

That statement was really to be misunderstood by many, but I still believe that Shindong didn’t want to put it that way. He wanted to be nice and careful… but it’s just too hard. Anyway, please be careful about it next time. At least he apologized…
Please be considerate and open-minded readers.
