5 Korean Actresses With The So-Called Teeny-Tiny "Ant Waist"

Find out what they do to maintain their figures!

In It's Okay to Not be Okay's Episode 6, Korean actress Seo Ye-ji (as Ko Moon-young) visited the OK Psychiatric Hospital wearing pastel pink separates—a long-sleeved cropped top and an ankle-length skirt. The feminine and fresh color looked fabulous on the ever-stylish character, but it was not the first thing we noticed the moment Ko Moon-young emerged from her car in this outfit. It's her teeny-tiny waist, emphasized by her ensemble's silhouette!  


A millennial slang, "shookt" is perhaps the best adjective to describe how netizens reacted to this viral look! Some said she looked like a real-life Barbie; well, we all know how exaggerratedly small this iconic doll's waist is! Some mentioned that Seo Ye-ji now joins the list of Hallyu stars with the so-called "ant waist," a term used to refer to a shockingly tiny waist.

The term "ant waist" has been associated with a number of K-Pop idols, such as BLACKPINK's Jennie and Lisa. Their work entails a lot of dancing, so that's one form of exercise for them. Jennie was said to be a fan of Flying Yoga (or aerial yoga), an anti-gravity fitness that combines traditional yoga poses, Pilates, and dance which utilizes a hammock; it's believed to improve strength and increase flexibility. For Lisa, her go-to workout is Pilates which helps improve her flexibility and strengthen her core. Their group reportedly also has a diet plan that's all about controlling portions and monitoring the calories.
