Kim was also criticized for losing a large amount of weight in such a short time to fit the dress.

Addressing the backlash during the interview, Kim said, “I see it as a role and I really want to wear this dress. It’s really important to me, and it really taught me a lot about my lifestyle and health.

“Since then, I’ve continued to eat healthy… I’m not trying to lose weight anymore, but I have more energy than ever, I’ve cut out a lot of sugar, a lot of junk food. I ate – I didn’t even realize – a lot of fried food, and I just completely changed my lifestyle.”
