2AM member Jo Kwon confessed that he used shoe inserts to protect his dignity.
On the March 19th broadcast of KBS2's 'Star Life Theater', he shared the problem he faced because he was relatively short compared to his fellow members who are quite tall.
During the show, Jo Kwon revealed the inserts that he uses when he appears on television and said, "I was so stressed out because of my height. There was also an article written not too long ago asking the question how many inserts I used."
He continued, "My real height is 173cm (about 5'8"). When I am actively promoting then I have shoe inserts to protect my dignity and keep the visual balance with my group," and brought about a lot of laughter.
Also during the broadcast, Jo Kwon showed tears as he spoke about his years as a trainee and how he was hurt by others, falling into a slump and experiencing depression.
