Super Junior's Kangin revealed he lost 15 kg (~33 lbs.) in 27 days!


During the press conference for 'Star Diving Show Splash', Kangin shared, "I went on a diet for 27 days and lost 15 kg (~33 lbs.)."


He explained how he ended up losing so much weight so fast. "I ate small portions. I didn't put any carbohydrates near my mouth and didn't intake much water. When I was hungry, I ate one strawberry. I did a lot of aerobic exercise on an empty stomach before I went to sleep. As I practiced diving, I think I lost even more weight."


Kangin also revealed the reason for his intense diet, "I wanted to get my weight down. I have to perform at the Gayo Daejun festivals at the end of the year, and I wanted to come out looking good. But since I went on a harsh diet, I developed a stomach disorder. I aged faster, and I got more distracted. I think my blood pressure went up, and I became very sensitive too. I also suffered from dry eye syndrome. Since there are a lot of adverse effects, I wouldn't want to recommend my diet to anyone."

He definitely went through a lot. Do you think the results were worth it?

People are saying '' Great job ''? Seriously? This is the worst kind of diet, he lost a lot of muscle mass and not only fat because he barely ate anything and kept burning calories for a month, that's how people become both skinny and fat at the same time, good thing he stopped this kind of diet.

Kangin, Oppa, love you but that wasn't smart. Healthy and unhealthy people can tell you that's a dangerous way to diet. You also stayed away from one of the best things for your body, water. I hope the next time you diet you balance a healthy meal with the proper amount of work outs AND water. Water is like a miracle gift. Use it.

the problem with his diet is that he's so dehydrated.

dehydration will weaken organs and make red blood cells thinner. not good.

frequent dehydration could also cause kidney stones.

I'm glad that Kangin is admitting it. But please, no more dangerous diets like this.  It scares me that I'm crying. It's not good for the body and the side and after effects are bad too. Just exercise more, practice dancing, and watch the food he's eating. I don't care if you're pretty, handsome, or not. You'll forever be the Kangin oppa that I love, the hyung/appa that SuJu love. The  Kangin that elf's love.

I don't know if the make-up or lighting is bad, but that yellowish tinge makes it look like he's got problems with his liver too. Not enough water will break down the liver as well.

That's not a diet, that's anorexia athletica and though he lost the weight, if he plans on stopping this horrible "diet" then he's probs going to gain a lot of it back. I hope he tries to eat healthily and if he diets again, that he does it right. I'm just glad he's speaking against what he did and admitting, that it's not something others should do.

He's probably gonna gain it back anyway. Those crash diets always result in that because once you get your body set on that type of lifestyle to lose that weight, to maintain it you're probably gonna have to keep that up.

Its because he did it wrong... You must drink lots of water, water is weight but not fat. It also helps you to feel full, good for losing weight. You also shouldn't exercise before sleep, good sleep helps keep your body healthy. Its better to gradually eat healthier and less rather than a sudden change. You might be trying to look good oppa but actually being good is more important.
