Actor Joo Won opened up about his weight gain after his military discharge.
On the August 25th episode of 'Choi Hwa Jung's Power Time', Joo Won featured as a guest and introduced his character Park Jin Kyum in the new SBS drama 'Alice', a detective aiming to avenge his mother's death. He expressed, "My character is a child lacking emotions who becomes a detective to avenge his mother's death. It's a time-slip drama, so it goes back and forth 10 years ago. He becomes a detective because of his mother's death and goes to the point of death."
When a listener asked if the actor ever wants to return to the past, he responded, "I don't want to go back to the past. The present is good. If I go to the future, I want to see what I look like and what goes wrong." As for his weight after his military discharge, Joo Won shared, "I didn't get very bloated, but I gained a little weight because I ate well and exercised a lot. After I was discharged from the military, I suddenly had a shower scene in the drama, so I exercised more."
He also revealed his love for chicken, saying, "I love it. I even ate one chicken a day. I ate it grilled rather than fried."
In related news, Joo Won was officially discharged in February of 2019.
'Alice' premieres on August 28 KST.
