In the documentary, the LE SSERAFIM members practiced passionately, enduring the massive pressure of making their debut as “HYBE’s first girl group.”

In episode three, HYBE’s artist management team leader Kim Hyeong Eun brought the topic of diet control and self-management to the members. He told them,

“Those who have debuted before would know how important self-management is when an artist is promoting. Unfortunately, I do not think you were at one hundred percent in that aspect.”

Kim Hyeong Eun continued to emphasize that members needed to lose weight, saying,

“As a company, we will do our best to provide you with the best means, but in the end, self-management is all up to you. I think you need time to rethink how important this is and for you strictly manage yourselves.”

He then advised the LE SSERAFIM members, who at this point were about to make their debut, to make themselves look more beautiful on screen.

Sakura was able to gain strength thanks to Kim Chaewon’s warm words. She recalled the days when she was an idol in another agency and that she tried to manage her body by herself if she felt she had gained weight. Sakura revealed her previous agency did not do much to help her.
