[news] Seo In Kook admits to once being Bulimic

MNet's Superstar K winner and singer of "Calling You," Seo In Kook, has admitted that he once had a eating disorder on SBS' Strong Heart.

Superstar K is the Korean version of American Idol and Seo In Kook was the first ever winner on it this past summer. He has quickly risen to fame just as Kelly Clarkson has in America and released the song "Calling You" which has been hovering on the top charts since its release.

He chose Strong Heart, aka "Nerves of Steel" to be the first talk show he appeared in. In it, he said that he auditioned for JYPE a couple times and each time, they would tell him to come back after he loses weight because he used to be chubby.He decided to go on a diet but his friends would always eat chicken which was his favorite food. He couldn't resist so then he would eat it and then feel guilty. Due to the guilt, he would throw it all back out. This came a habit and he started to throw up whenever he ate and it became so bad that he would automatically vomit after each meal without having to stick his finger down his throat.

He realised he had a problem when he went to another audition. Because he vomitted so much and his vocal chords were becoming damaged due to the stomach acid, five different tones came out of his voice at once. Yet again, he failed the audition but this time not due to his weight but due to his voice.

Now that he has made it thru Superstar K, he said that he wanted to show people the visions he mapped out in his head and asked the fans for their support.

Seo In Kook, with the recent exposure he's been getting has become pretty popuular in Korea and we wish him the best of luck. I myself, really enjoy his song and his voice. Not only that, his experience being brought up poor has built in him a unique strong character. Fighting Seo In Kook!
