Holy slim down! In preparation for ZE:A’s comeback, member Kwanghee has lost an astonishing 37 pounds in a bit to look his best in front of their fans.
The group held a showcase in Seoul on Tuesday, June 3, at WAPOP Hall located in Children’s Grand Park for their upcoming mini album “First Homme”. During the event 25-year-old Kwanghee revealed he lost a total of 17 kilograms [37.4 pounds] to make an “image change”.
He explained: “I recently lost 5 more kilograms, so I lost a total of 17 kilograms so now I weigh 54 kilograms [119 pounds]. I had to lose more weight because I’m short.” (The singer stands at just over 5-foot-8).
Fellow member Heechul added: “He had gained weight because he de-stressed by eating food. He has been working hard to go back to how he used to look like.”
But bandmate Junyoung said that Kwanghee’s efforts have affected the other members as well. “He only eats one meal a day and watches what he eats,” the 25-year-old said.
“The other members are starving nowadays, like Kwanghee. It’s because Kwanghee wouldn’t eat. He’s very intense.”
