“A lot of people have asked me, ‘How do you diet?’ If I were to tell you the truth, my height and weight are 179cm and 47 kg. (I try and lose weight in a really extreme way. I’m not sure how other models diet.) During Fashion Week, I truly don’t even eat one meal. When Fashion Week is open, it goes on for over 4 weeks. So for 4 weeks, I only drink water. If I’m really struggling then I’ll eat half a banana.”
I'm still confused about this. So, she does her extreme diet DURING fashion week? Meaning she's at her low weight AFTER all the shows are over? And from what we can gather about her typical diet (not very restrictive, bad with self control) she starts FW at a relatively high weight? I feel like this is either poorly translated or not thought out very well.

I think it's a mistranslation tbh, but it's mainly a bit of both - she (probably) starts with the diet a bit before FW, which means she does start off at a higher weight and then continues losing throughout the fashion month (from what I've noticed).

So Ra for Vogue Korea

She looks very different in this due to the mullet and afro hairstyles. The first picture I barely recognised her in.
I'd have to admit her shoulder looks a bit too 'fleshy' for my liking, but like @Tinyportia mentioned before, she fluctuates heavily around fashion weeks so I trust her to get in shape again.

This is from a while back, but found while organizing thinspo and my current starving contest motivation.

After so many seasons, I'm still obsessed with her. Here are a few GIFs that I made (based off of the video linked above) :kiss:

Slight weight gain aside - she's got a new haircut and looks amazing :luv:

Agree that the gain is noticeable and I hope she doesn’t gain anymore! You can tell she tries hard to maintain her skinny frame and that it’s probably not very natural for her.

More pictures of her haircut:

I think I like it actually. That is if she tries losing the ten pounds she’s gained. Hair like this is cute on a skinny girl, but looks very “acorn” and “mehhh” on an average body.

Is it just me or has she gained quite a bit?

I had the exact thought when I went through those pictures. Although her body is covered in most of these looks, you can clearly see it in her less caved in cheekbones and calves from the last picture.

I think this weight gain was for a couple of months now or at least since April.

Just googled her age and she’s 29 this year which is along the same age group as Sasha Lisa which may explain the slow weight gain. Even Sasha L has shown a slight gain in recent months, but nothing ridiculous.

Metabolism really does start to slow down when you get to around 30 and you can’t eat like your early twenties. Either you clean up your diet, eat less or increase exercise.

I just have a feeling judging by the bone structure of SORA Choi that it is a lot of hard work that she puts into maintaining skinny. I think she might be more “athletically built” than gamine.

A long ass post, you've been warned.

I love her to death - she'll forever be one of my favorites. Even tho her prime is over, her footprint in the industry remains rock solid even after so many years. Makes sense how she still gets substantial amount of work despite the weight gain. She worked very hard and now she gets to relax a little bit, perhaps focusing more on the printwork rather than runway.

That being said, here's some recent prints.

Also, I haven't seen this Vogue Korea February 2021 issue mentioned. Pardon me if it's a page or so back. I just find the triple cover photos along with the whole editorial rather enchanting.
