2AM’s Changmin discusses his 30 kg weight loss

On the March 23rd episode of KBS‘s ‘Star Life Theater‘, 2AM‘s Changmin sat down for an interview and honestly discussed his experience with weight loss.

After spending the day with 2AM, reporters noticed that while the other members freely ate ramen as snacks between meals, Changmin would insist on snacking on chicken breasts or sausages.

Changmin explained, “I used to weigh over 100 kg. I lost 18 kg in three weeks and about 30 kg in six weeks. I only ate two blocks of tofu and ran six hours a day. After that, I ate healthily and exercised often to keep the weight down.”

He continued, “As a singer, showing myself to the public is a part of the job. The stage is not just about your song, as it’s actually a combination of visuals and sounds.”

For the past four years, Changmin wakes up at 6:30 a.m. on his own and makes sure to get daily exercise into his busy schedule.

Netizens commented, “30 kg in six weeks? He must’ve worked really hard,” “He could accomplish anything with that determination, makes me reflect on myself.”

2AM reveals their dorm, previously belonging to the Wonder Girls

On the March 19th episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Star Life Theater‘, 2AM revealed their ‘un-celebrity-like’ dormitory that they’ve been living in for the past 3 years.

The members explained, “This is the house the Wonder Girls used to live in. After they left for the U.S., we ended up moving in and have been living here for the past three years.”

Changmin then expressed his discomfort with the furnishing by saying, “The TV is really old. This TV was also used by the Wonder Girls.” The members then went on to complain that whenever the members try to watch soccer on TV, the field grass always appears to be the color purple. “It’s better to just watch it on the computer,” he said, causing viewers to laugh.

The producer then questioned the members, “Is this really the house of a celebrity?” to which the members hilariously replied, “Nobody will realize it’s a celebrity’s house until we tell them it is.

In addition to this episode, Jo Kwon proved to be a “macho man” after cameras got a glimpse of his unique mouse pad, given by a fan, and his desktop wallpaper.
