Nam Joo Hyuk Workout: Actor Reveals He Lose Much Weight for His Kdrama with Lee Sung Kyung

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is Nam Joo Hyuk's breakthrough Kdrama where he gained massive popularity after landing the role of student-athlete Jung Joon Hyeong.

In a report cited by Soompi, the actor revealed that he went to greater heights in preparation for the series.

He would do his scenes in cold water, not to mention the size of the pool.

“Since the swimming scenes are long, my body would get colder as we film. I did get a cold during the last few days of filming, so it was quite hard,” he said, adding “I think any drama that requires exercise is difficult.”


As for Nam Joo Hyuk’s workout routine to pull off that swimmer's body, he said that he “naturally started losing weight.”

The actor continued that his body type naturally shed pounds despite not doing exercise on a regular basis.

It might be because of his eating habits that greatly affected his weight.

“Since I didn’t have time to eat while filming and swam, too, my weight began to decrease. I think it’s because I value sleep over food,” he explained.
