SHINee’s Taemin Weighs 57 kg Now But Wants to Gain 3 kg


SHINee’s Taemin revealed his current weight.

During August 20’s broadcast of KBS Cool FM’s Gayo Plaza, Taemin confessed, “I will reveal my weight today. I recently lost weight from dieting.”

Taemin said, “I usually weigh about 60 kilograms because I have a lot of hidden fat. Now, I weigh 57 kilograms. I plan to gain 3 kilograms back.”

DJ Lee Sora then said, “I will reveal a secret of mine to. I weigh a bit more than Taemin,” surprising the listeners.

1. [+3,548, -66] My body needs to close its eyes

2. [+2,668, -58] Seems to be the type that doesn't gain weight

3. [+2,827, -321] ;;;;;;;;; He doesn't seem to have an ounce of muscle

4. [+2,157, -86] Taemin needs to gain some more weight ㅠㅠ Eat lots, Taemin-ah...

5. [+1,516, -167] Putting articles like this on the main page will only get Taemin more hate....

6. [+261, -8] I think it's just how his body is ㅋㅋ not that he diets or anything. And he dances a lot so he burns all of his calories no matter how much he eats...

7. [+265, -14] (Quietly puts down her spoon)

8. [+259, -17] Let me put away my bread real quick..

He's still skinny as hell but he does have muscle. He's pretty toned now, actually. And yeah, he just seems the type who has a fast metabolism or something. I know plenty of people like that and they're still healthy.

I wanna feed him negl. It might be a fast metabolism but he's always looked a bit underweight to me

If we go by the BMI then I'd say 90% of idols are underweight. So as long they're lean and healthy and not malnourished it's okay with me.
Anyway, I've heard the BMI is different in East Asian countries like Japan, Korea, China, etc...because people usually have a smaller body type there. A friend is working in Japan and she told me that a doctor told her that she was overweight because her BMI was 23. In western countries, a healthy BMI is between 18-24, but in certain Asian countries is like 16-22.
Idk how tall Taemin is but I'd say he's not underweight anymore, even using the western BMI.

125.6 pounds, for anyone else who was wondering. Taemin does look...not scrawny like he sort of used to, but more filled out (as much as he could be, lol). I'd go with lean now rather than hopelessly skinny.

ETA: I'm 53.5 kg...but wait, how tall is he? The internet tells me 175, so for him being 13 cm taller than me...

I googled a quick BMI caclulator (first one that popped up and didn't bother to cross check) and got 18.6 BMI for him at his current weight, which is just inside the proposed healthy 18.5-24 BMI range.

I remember when kiddo was 14 and scrawny and they said he weighed 50 kg. I've been happy to see he's gained weight over the years.

But yeah, it's hard to tell a person's weight by looking at them. I've put on like 4 kg of muscle over the past 2 years and I'm still pretty much the same size as I was before. You can only see the difference in my thighs and my shoulders.

hes the same weight as me

i have lost weight too because of stress at job etc :/
asnindie 20th-Aug-2014 03:13 pm (UTC)
Where are you working? Sorry about the weight loss
uledy 20th-Aug-2014 02:38 pm (UTC)
I don't typically concern myself with netizen comments but #1 had me rolling.

I think this is just his body type. Even when he was weight training, he didn't get all that big. He's lean and toned. I ain't his PCP so there isn't really anything else for me to say- just hope he's taking care of himself and that since he wants to gain weight, I hope he can do healthily.
ababobaby 20th-Aug-2014 03:04 pm (UTC)
this comment is a+ <3

also i heard he doesn't necessarily want to buff up like minho
love_tippany 20th-Aug-2014 02:48 pm (UTC)
Does anyone know how tall he is? I'm like 1.77 and the same weight, but I look sooo fat compared to him...
maishi_obuki 20th-Aug-2014 11:09 pm (UTC)
he has lithe muscle not bulk. he will look slimmer and weigh more than somebody who is just skinny but has the same measurements.

bunica1990 20th-Aug-2014 03:00 pm (UTC)
He looks like the type who has trouble gaining weight.

How tall is he? He looks like he's grown a lot since last year.
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 03:02 pm (UTC)
I'd say around 177ish at least but I'm not sure because idols wear insoles all the time.
hipployta 20th-Aug-2014 03:09 pm (UTC)
Taeminnie...you want to gain weight for muscle right lol

That dude is 10 pounds lighter than me so I feel you Sora
asnindie 20th-Aug-2014 03:16 pm (UTC)
My lowest weight was 63 kg and I was so thin my leg looked like a stick so idk how thin he is its scary being that low tbh.
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 03:25 pm (UTC)
I think it depends on your height and body type. There was this guy on my hs class who weighed 63 kg too and he was around 178 but he had a perfectly athletic body.
karmin90 20th-Aug-2014 03:17 pm (UTC)
I have a friend who's 5'9" and just found out she's 10 pounds underweight, but she doesn't look malnourished, just skinny. So he may or not be underweight. Some people just have a hard time gaining weight and everyone carries their weight differently.
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 03:24 pm (UTC)
I have two super skinny friends. One of them is 1.74 (5'9''ish?) and 52 kg (114 lb) and the other is 1.69 (5'6''ish) and 46 kg (101 lb). This one does look a bit malnourished but she's actually completely healthy. Some people just have that kind of body type.

Isn't SoRa a good deal taller than Taemin?
babyonions 20th-Aug-2014 03:39 pm (UTC)
I'm taller than him but also weigh more so.. yes, this is depressing
gray_fairy 20th-Aug-2014 03:44 pm (UTC)
How tall is he tho? Some profiles say 177 and others 175, so I don't have any idea lol.
RoknRollPumpkin 20th-Aug-2014 03:40 pm (UTC)
I noticed he started to fill out last summer but of course they make idols diet/train before comebacks so I suppose it's to be expected he lost a bit of weight.

It's Jongyu that freaked me out last summer. Onew currently put some weight back on but Jjong looks like a kid. IDK sometimes I feel like SM prefers SHINee waifish T.T
frendlyscholar 20th-Aug-2014 04:23 pm (UTC)
Shinee looked the healthiest during 2012-first half of 2013 promotions but I guess the running up and down and constant promotions/touring made them lose a lot.
