Sam Kim has been charming audiences ever since his debut season on 'K-Pop Star 3,' and the singer talked about his dramatic weight loss in the latest episode of 'Cultwo Show,' which aired on January 5. 


Sam Kim revealed that he had lost 25kg (55 pounds) compared to when he first appeared on 'K-Pop Star.' When asked what the secret was behind his weight loss, Sam replied, "There isn't really a secret per se, I just added chicken breast to my usual diet."


Meanwhile, he mentioned Jung Seung Hwan and Eric Nam as his best buddies. 


Furthermore, he added that he had to change his name to '(샘김 pronounced Sam Gim)' since it overlapped with the famous chef, Sam Kim (샘킴).


The singer is currently receiving much attention for singing OST Part 6 of tvN's Friday/Saturday drama 'Goblin' titled "Who Are You."

    lol chicken..really? idk. i think celebrities are always asked "whats the secret to weight loss" and ppl are always looking for a shortcut or fun tip but the reality of it is less unhealthy food, more water, working out a ton, etc. we all know these things, it just might be hard to actually do them. anyway, but im sure with a better diet and workout plan, the chicken breast did help. i just thought it was kinda funny that he said that like he did XD

    I don't know what he's changing in his name. Gim (김) is the actual Korean pronunciation of Kim. If anything, Sam Kim the chef change his last name to sound more Western.
