EXO's Kai says he lived on a restricted diet for 5-years, tries to gain weight for comeback promotions


On April 24, EXO's Kai attended his first ever fashion job interview on the season opener of 'The Devil Wears Jung Nam' season 2!

A spin-off web series in Na Young Suk PD's universe, 'The Devil Wears Jung Nam' is hosted by model/actor Bae Jung Nam, who transforms into a fashion consultant and gives celebrities stylish makeovers. 

For season 2 of the series, Bae Jung Nam has decided to hire a part-time junior consultant to work with him - EXO's Kai! For this week's episode, Kai was given the task of coordinating an outfit for Bae Jung Nam on a limited budget. The theme of the challenge was an outfit for a spring picnic with a crush!

First, after meeting Kai for the first time, Bae Jung Nam asked Kai about his love of clothes. The model also asked Kai how tall he was and how much he weighed, to which Kai replied, "I am about 181~182 cm, and 63 kg (~139 lb)." Hearing this, Bae Jung Nam remarked, "Those are good measurements for wearing clothes." 

Kai also explained, "So for example, if I have to gain a little weight for a comeback concept, I can get up to about 68 kg (~150 lb). Usually when I am not promoting, I stay in the 64~65 kg range. I've lived on a restricted diet for about 5 years."

Bae Jung Nam then asked, "Do you eat regular food now?" Kai answered, "Yes, I do eat a little more normally now." When he followed up with, "You must not eat a lot of carbohydrates," Kai nodded and said, "Right. I don't eat carbs normally." This resulted in Bae Jung Nam deducting 5 points from Kai's job interview score!

Lastly, to a question about how often he drinks, Kai cautiously said, "I don't know how this will affect my score but... In 2 years, I drink about 5~10 times." Bae Jung Nam jokingly responded, "Well, it was nice meeting you!"

Watch how Kai did for his first fashion job interview on episode 0 of 'The Devil Wears Jung Nam' season 2, above!
