On February 17, Gyujin interacted with his fans through V Live and shared a few of his pre-debut photos. Gyujin, in the past, frequently mentioned that he was always chubby before his debut. After becoming a trainee, his weight had gone through a drastic change from over 110 kg (about 240 lbs) to 60 kg (132 lb) in just a few years.
He says that skipping on ice cream and cookies helps one lose weight if that's the goal. "I always give myself 'a cheating day' though, to treat myself to whatever I want to eat just once a week," laughed Gyujin.
The cute photos that he shared included cute, plump versions of young Gyujin as well as slightly more mature versions of Gyujin during his high school days.
