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

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"
