On November 5 broadcast of JTBC “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator,” top balladeer Wheesung appeared as a guest. During the show, the singer revealed that for the past 20 years, he has been on a diet.
The singer gave an explanation for his obsession for dieting. He said, “I eat too well. When I was young, I could easily eat food serving for over 4 people in one sitting. Instead of enjoying the taste of food, I like to just shove it all in.”
One particular story that caught everyone’s attention was Wheesung talking about the time he took dieting to extreme.
The singer begun, “I once lost about 30 kilograms in just over two months. Every day, I did 3000 jumping jacks, 40 minutes of weightlifting, and ran 40 laps. However, since I had lost too much weight in such a rapid time period, I eventually gained it all back. Ultimately, I decided to go back to this particular method, but I ended up fainting due to malnutrition.”
He concluded, “nowadays, I eat one meal a day. When I feel like I’ve gained weight, I eat chicken breast, only.”
I feel like he's been open about his appearance and weight in the past, he must know how unhealthy this is.
