2NE1 Dara Has Killer Abs & YG Family Has Some Of The Best K-Pop Bodies
2NE1 made their comeback this weekend with their All or Nothing concerts in Seoul. One of the most circulated photos from the concert has become a shot that highlights the well-defined abdominal muscles of Dara.
2NE1 are stand outs from other female groups in K-Pop for having a public image of fitness. Even Park Bom, who is often the source of fan banter regarding her love of the highly caloric vegetable corn, can be seen displaying a toned and fit body. In an industry that emphasizes ant-waists as the standard for women, 2NE1 serve as role models for healthier life choices for their fans.
In the leading weeks to the All or Nothing concerts, Dara shared photos of the exercise training process to build stamina for the performances.
YG Entertainment‘s artists are often photographed in the gym by their trainer, Hwangssabu. Through his social media, Hwangssabu encourages fans of YG artists to exercise and to adhere to a proper diet.
Beyond 2NE1, Big Bang’s Seungri, Taeyang, and Daesung are frequently captured in the gym photos.
For their Alive comeback, the physiques of Big Bang were highlighted and often shown during the group’s stage performances.
The emphasis on fitness extends beyond the established artists to the trainees and dancers. WINNER and the trainees of Team B have already demonstrated their commitment to join the ranks of physically fit artists at YG.
While SM Entertainment may have some of the most athletically inclined artists, it is obvious that YG leads the industry in terms of overall fitness. As Dara and the other members of 2NE1 continue to transform into more fit individuals, they serve as inspiration for fans who wish to lead healthier lifestyles.
