Editor crystalcoves brief commentary:
It is interesting to note how hot this topic was in the Korean entertainment news when the episode aired. The producers of the show knew it would be and made sure to advertise that this information would be revealed before they aired the episode. There is a lot of pressure for females in Korea to be skinny, with the pressure even higher for those that appear on TV. The measurements shown on Real Men were all higher for weight and lower for height than what their public profiles, available on Naver, state.
While the show didnt air all the post-examination interviews, it showed through the interviews of Hyeri and Kim So Yeon and through the expressions on the casts faces that none of them welcomed such revelation. In fact, they were embarrassed and Kim So Yeon and Hyeri made excuses for weighing more than what people expected them to. Even at those measurements displayed in the show, Hyeri and Kim So Yeon are underweight.
This episode of of Real Men helps to underscore how high the pressure is to be thin in Korea. As for height, women also feel the pressure to not be too tall and not to be too short, basically that imaginary perfect ideal. The walls of the box seem to be just closing in around women in Korea, tighter and immovable.
