Who are the girl group members with the nicest legs?

SNSD has been extremely successful in both Japan and Korea, and their popularity can be attributed somewhat to their long, slender legs. However, there are other Korean artists who are also known for such desirable legs. In a survey done by dermatologists and plastic surgeons, the top five were chosen as follows:

1. UEE (After School)

She is known to be the master of “honey thighs”. As a former competitive swimmer, she has trained her leg muscles extensively. Unfortunately, she has recently been plagued with negative comments over her weight. Nevertheless, comments by the judges included: “Legs I want to touch”, “The balance between her torso length and leg length is perfect”, and “Her long calves are refreshing”.

2. Huh Gayoon (4minute)

By her fans, she is said to have ’subtle glamor’. Despite having a baby face, she has athletic legs.  The doctors agreed that she had “perfect leg lines” and “smooth calf muscles”.

3. Sooyoung (SNSD)

She has legs that don’t seem Asian. Sooyoung has received interest over her legs since she debuted. Having said that, many SNSD members are known for their legs, such as Seohyun, Jessica, and Tiffany. They said about Sooyoung though, “These are legs that do not need photoshop. Are these legs of an Asian?” and “Her smooth thighs don’t even have any trace of fat.”

4. Hyuna (4minute)

She gained a lot of male fans through her solo song, ‘Change‘, and her pelvic dance showcased her ideal legs. Comments included: “Her thigh lines are charming when she dances” and “Her thighs and calves have no trace of fat”.

5. Bora (Sistar)

Despite being around average height (165 cm), she has long slender legs. During the MBC Chusok special, ‘Idol Star Athletics Championships’, she won the 100m race and the nickname, ‘Boshain Bolt’. They commented, “She has golden ratio legs” and “The way her thighs, calves and ankles connect is flawless.”

The heights and weights of girl groups

Girl groups have undergone many changes since they first appeared in the music industry. Formerly known for their fantasy-like and unapproachable image, girl groups these days seem unafraid to bare all, as many are the driving forces behind variety programs. Their witty commentary and honest confessions have earned them countless headlines.

In those cases where they confess, what is the thing that is most often confessed by girl groups?  Well, girl groups almost always confess their height and weight on variety shows, adding and subtracting from reality to fit the situation. Newsen and Sports Seoul recently surveyed the heights and weights of ten girl groups to get a closer look behind the screen.

SNSD, KARA, and f(x) were excluded from the survey, as their information was not listed in portals.

The members weighing the least are S.E.S’s Shoo at 44 kg, and Fin.K.L’s Sung Yuri at 45 kg.

#4. All of the girl groups are underweight!

Celebrities are often seen making statements such as, “I look heavier on screen than I do in real life.”

Which girl group is the most popular in Japan?

Japan’s SNS site Mixi researched on the Korean girl groups with the greatest number of fanclub members. Although it’s hard to get an accurate representation through only one site, Mixi is one of the most popular social network services amongst Japan’s youth, boasting over 21 million members.

On the 24th, Mixi reported that KARA’s Goo Hara had 6,500 fans for her similarity in appearance to Japan’s Amuro Namie.

The member with the second most members is SNSD’s Yoona with 5,500. Yoona was also previously chosen as the #1 most popular SNSD member in a survey that ranked their popularity in Japan.

KARA’s Nicole (4,500), SNSD’s Taeyeon (3,300), KARA’s Kang Jiyoung (3,200) followed Goo Hara and Yoona. Other members each had about 2,300 to 3,000 fanclub members.
