The ‘Invincible YouthG8 members combined weight was revealed and gathered much attention.

On the April 7th episode of KBS’s ‘Invincible Youth 2,’ the G8 members went to ride horses and when MC Boom saw a machine that weighs horses, he urged the girls to get on it.

During the show, the ‘honorable worker’ title went to Yewon and Woori, so they were exempt from getting on the scales.  But the other six members went on the scale at the same time.  The combined weight of the girls was 318kg (699.6 pounds) giving them an average weight of 53kg (116.6 pounds).

Viewers made comments such as, “They are girl group members so they do not weight that much” and “The weight of the six members combined is less then the average weight of a horse which is 350kg.  That is surprising.”

The scale segment begins at about 18:10:

Girl group, SISTAR also revealed their teaser photos on the 5th showcasing an all-black one-piece dress, while posing in front of a red background.  The red and black combination came out very well and supported their sexy and charismatic theme.  Member, Hyorin drew the most attention when a still-cut of her from SISTAR’s upcoming music video, “Alone“ was revealed on an online community board.  Hyorin was seen wearing a tight mini, nude colored dress that brought more notice to her curves, and  ultimately had fans giving her a new nickname, ‘Apple Hips‘.
