On a recent episode of KBS Joy’s Ask Anything, Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun made an appearance where he confessed that food-related variety shows are actually very difficult for him.

And the reason is his small eating capacity.

We often do eating shows on variety, but I get so full that I just can’t eat anymore.

According to Kyuhyun, he eats so little that some even ask him if he’s had a gastrectomy.

Kyuhyun explained that the variety shows he’s on are all about eating.

With SBS’s ‘Delicious Rendezvous’, we sometimes eat until 7, and in the case of ‘New Journey to the West’, we eat all the time.

But the feel to eat a lot prevented Kyuhyun from enjoying the food, and he’s stressed as a result.

Since we play games to win food, I just force it all down no matter how full I am. I’m worried as someone who needs to keep doing variety shows.

— Kyuhyun

 

Moreover, he’s stressed about his appearance as a result.

When you start eating more, you gain weight. Then there will be problems with my appearance. I’m worried.

— Kyuhyun

But Shindong assured Kyuhyun that viewers don’t actually want him to overeat.

The viewers don’t want that for you either.

— Shindong

Hopefully, Kyuhyun finds a way to control his portions no matter the theme of the variety show.
