“Sexy Queen” Lee Hyo Ri has once again dominated the newspaper headlines with another noteworthy quote over the past weekend.
In the fourth episode of MNet reality show, “Off the Record Hyo Ri” on 15th March, she said something shocking which stunned viewers.
Hyo Ri got a day’s vacation from her CF shoot in Thailand recently. Together with her stylist, they enjoyed a day of fun and shopping together. As Hyo Ri was biting (big mouthful) into her hamburger, she asked, “When you work with female artistes, will they eat like this?”
Her stylist hesistated before answering, “Kim Tae Hee is famous for eating a lot.” Hyo Ri replied back enviously, “So she doesn’t get fat no matter how much she eats.” Then she followed up, “How about Jeon Ji Hyun?”
Her words indicates that she regards Jeon Ji Hyun & Kim Tae Hee as her rivals.
She continued, “(They) don’t even drink cola? Hamburgers too?”, as she grumbled that everyone has to restrict what they eat to maintain their body shape as she added, “Why does food that is bad for the body so tasty while food that are good for the body tastes awful?”, as she kept up her record of saying something shocking each week on the program.
In last week program, when the producer asked, “You seem to have a boyfriend?” Hyo Ri gave a speculative reply, “Even if I have a boyfriend, it’s considered invasion of privacy (at the cameras) isn’t it?” And thus, for that week, “Hyo Ri’s boyfriend” became the highlight topic for the week. Then in the previous previous week, she said, “Don’t have much friends around me”, “Hate this kind of style”, “Not superstar Hyo Ri but common folk Hyo Ri”, etc frank assessements which created hot discussions over the internet.
In a recent episode of SBS Good Sunday, “Change”, she jokingly said, “Jessica Alba? She is really nothing. Wasn’t she in a commercial with me before?”
Hyo Ri has been actively taking part in variety shows recently and not in her capacity as a singer, showing us that there’s another side to her plus her noteworthy quotes. With regards to this, viewers felt that she was trying to get “really close” to them and acknowledged her efforts.
