Park Bom had attended the 56th edition of Grand Bell Awards in June 2020 when a lot of social media users noticed her weight gain and slammed her for the same. It looks like Park Bom noticed all the backlash and kickstarted her journey towards a healthier life. Cut to January 2021, she most recently shared an Instagram post where she posted about the journey of her weight loss.
The 36-years-old K-Pop artist shared a collage where we could see her “before” and “after” weight loss picture. According to the publication Naver, the caption reads, “I did that during the Grand Bell Awards ceremony last year. I was shocked and I was on a diet so I subtracted 11kg from 70kg, so it’s 59kg! After losing weight, I’ve reduced my medicine a lot and I’m getting healthier.”
A fan page on Twitter also translated the caption written in Korean by Park Bom. It says, “I looked like this at last year’s grand bell awards. I was shocked myself and went on a diet. I lost 11kg from 70KG to 59KG. Because of the medication I received for my ADD, it was really hard to lose the weight. I have lost weight and I am also taking less medication lately – I feel like I am getting healthier. I won’t go back to my old self. Please look forward to my comeback!!”

Does Park Bom suffer from ADHD?

Park Bom was born in Seoul, South Korea. According to multiple reports, while attending junior high school in the United States, she was diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The rumors have always discussed how her anxiety and stress led to her weight gain. When she was spotted at the 56th Grand Bell awards in June 2020, a lot of social media users had also discussed Park Bom opting for plastic surgery.
Coming to the rescue of the singer, her agency D-Nation responded to the reports via their official statement, as reported by the website Hype. According to the agency, Park Bom “has had a hard time for a while due to stress”. They further asserted, “So, we assured her to just be comfortable until her next album comes out. This has led to a slight weight gain which affected her facial feature as well. She will be taking a short break for now.” Another rep from the company further denied the false claims, stating, “Some people say she got plastic surgery, but that’s not the case. We’re working on an album this year. She will be taking care of herself to show a completely new side. Please look forward to her new look.”
