Today is Labor Day in America, celebrating the contributions of hard work from workers who are the backbone of the country in prosperity and strength. With that mindset, here's a review of some of the K-pop celebrities who dedicated themselves, putting in hard work to lose weight and maintain their fitness.


With ceaseless media attention come the pressures of sustaining a polished, lean physique for fans to drool marvel over. Such is the nature of being a celebrity: simultaneously hounded by the watchful stare of the public eye and stigmatized as having gained weight for even the slightest bulge. 


Though we're always so prone to assume that celebrities are born with genetic codes that grant them such beautiful bodies, that isn't always the case. As it turns out, they work just as hard (if not harder) to shed off the pounds so they can greet us with a healthier image. 

 

Here are 11 celebrities with the most impressive weight loss transformations.




Super Junior's Shindong


2AM's Changmin



SECRET's Sunhwa


Super Junior's Kangin


B.A.P's Himchan


4minute's Hyuna


Super Junior's Ryeowook


Davichi's Kang Min Kyung


Big Bang's T.O.P


Kang Sora


Kim Shin Young

Super Junior's Ryeowook actually looked like that in the past? Not being surprised about him being a bit chubby but the two picture looks completely different from each other from every aspect. Look at his mouth and eyes. They don't match.


Shinyoung shouldn't lost that much weight. I get that she wanted to get healthy but she looks like she starved herself too much.

Ryeowook got plastic surgery before his debut with SJ. I guess he had a nose job and maybe done something with his jawline or chin and of obvisiously with his eyes. But his mouth is still the same, it just looks different in the picture.

OMG TOP. I didn't know he used to be a chubby boy. Cuteeee. And Kim Shin Young's transformation still hasn't sinked in, wow. I'm happy for her but I'm so not used to it! To be fair, I haven't seen a show of hers for a while now, the last one probably being Invincible Youth. LOL

Wow it is amazing how they were all able to lose weight off their noses and eye lids too.

there's the possibility of face surgery here (SD has admitted it for eyelids) but when you lose weight, your eyes do change... I drop 20kg and my eyes went from having "asian folds" to be wider.

@peepper 20 kg is no joke. It must have been hard since to lose 5 kg is like a hell for me.

@kpopers20 I was really fat, and when you're like that, the first kgs go away super fast. Then it gets harder... Now I want to lose 5kg more and it's impossible.

The fact that hyuna is on the list really annoys me. Her cheeks may have been fuller in that picture but she never weighed enough to have a "dramatic weight loss"
