TEEN TOP's Changjo sat down with 'International bnt' for an interview. 

Discussing his idol life of 7 years, Changjo revealed that he went through many struggles. He said, "I had bipolar disorder. When one thing went down, everything felt like it was bad, and even when I got a little mad I felt angry all day. I also had insecurities about my looks, so I went on a severe diet. I ate one meal a day or ate salad in place of a meal."

He continued, "I had bad acne too, but I took care of it with saline solution. I placed cotton balls with saline solution on sensitive spots and my skin improved in just 3 days. The part [of my face] that I am most insecure about is the jaw line. I envy the face shape of Lee Jun Ki sunbaenim."

    Is it just me or are idols more open about their problems and insecurities these days? I like it, makes them appear more human (well they are human duh) and less just like a product...

    Changjo's underratedness makes me so mad/sad. As previous comments stated, he can pretty much do everything well. On top of being talented as hell he's hilarious on variety shows and is really good looking (that's just a bonus tho). I really hope that he gets that recognition he deserves, along with the rest of teen top ofc.

    changjo debuted at the age of 14, he's been exposed to the media since day one and it saddens me to hear that changjo had to go through all of these serious issues. Especially when we as a fandom witnessed him getting angry at many occasions, we only ever thought he was joking he really must have suffered so much during his bipolar disorder during his teenage years. On top of that, he's always been the mysterious one in teen top, always the one who never went out with friends, changjo's really introvert he's always either in studio, filming a dance video, composing or preparing something for angels but he's so hyper with teen top. I just hope someone or teen top is always there for him in difficult times. I really hope he gains more recognition for his talents, rapping, acting, singing, dancing and composing.
