Jung Ryu-won goes on a diet for Mellows

Stick legs: Quick, someone call pest control,
a stick insect is on the loose!

Who's the chick with toothpicks for legs?

It's none other than My Name is Kim Sam-soon actress Jung Ryu-won. The 26-year-old went on a diet for director Song Hae-sung's new flick Mellows.

The movie is a melodrama about the love between a widower, who is an insurance investigator (portrayed by Lee Jeong-jae), and a woman who had been in a coma for a year.

Little wonder Ryu-won had to starve diet for her role. She started dieting once she was confirmed as the lead in March. Filming was scheduled to start in April this year, but it was delayed.

Poor girl, she looks like she can break into two if I body slammed her to the ground. Ah, the perils of being an actor.

Feed me!: Anyone got a carrot?

Reminisce: Ryu-won thinks about the good old days
when she was still eating

noo way! i thought this was one of the popseoul gals! that first pic was up in a recent post of theirs because the duo is goin' separate ways. :( they were part of my daily routine along with the k-popped blog!
but dang, jung ryeo-won is a massive stick! she's really pretty but that's pretty scary. within 5 months she got down to that. that's crazy! she looked good in kim samsoon. i wasn't totally into her character because i was totally on Team Samsoon!

lol...it's funny people STILL think the Popseoul sisters would ever post an actual picture of themselves.... they ALWAYS post pictures of celebrities. Though in a way I guess they being deceptive and sly about it by using "selca" looking photos where the faces are obscured to make it look more "real." Also they never correct all the naive commenters wondering if it is an actual picture of them.

In any case, that's smart of them. No need to put your actual face online and in the meantime everyone thinks you look like a pretty actresses. They win.

AHA! Thanks for clearing that up. I actually thought the girl in the pic selca-ing is the POPSEOUL sister who's going to start Seoulbeats.

I like the short hair and dress. I think she looks fab. Legs a bit too thin though.

puhahaha i guess everyone here visits popseoul (or did...) ^^


i've thought jung ryeo won was always anorexic since she quit chakra but that's just my opinion ._.

@ janeberryblue
Yeah.I also think that she's been anorexic all along.

I'd really like to see a director offer her a role that needs her to gain weight like Sam Soon or wear a fat suit like Kim Ah Joong.Now wouldn't that be interesting?

i hate it when these ANOREXIC chicks photo themselves and thinking they are all "hot". NO this is NOT hot! nor pretty. this is unhealthy and abnormal! look at what these brainless celebs teach little girls and boys. that "stick figures" and "chopstick legs" are what's supposed to be HOT! SOOO Wrong!

JRW is UGLY!!
