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.
