I posted the first excerpts of the interview show last week (here). Actually I have this second excerpts the day after I posted the first one but got delayed posting this one.
I slimmed down because of Jang Dong Gun, my small eyes don’t have strength…
In the Red Carpet 2 show, for the first time Jun Ki explained why he decided to lose weight. He said the reason was due to Jang Dong Gun.
Jun Ki was thinner now compared to his days during “The King and Clown” and “Fly Daddy”. Currently he is busy filming his new drama, “The Time Between Dog and Wolf” and it will be screened in July this year. He was working hard in slimming down for his character in the drama and he has successfully slimmed down 7 kg so far.
He explained the reason why he slimmed down. He said that it was due to Jang Dong Gun’s character in “Typhoon”. After watching that movie, he thought that the slimmed down JDG looked more handsome and strong. JDG oozed with masculinity and really have charisma. He thought that the role in that movie was successfully was because of the new JDG image. Inspired by JDG, he decided to shed his “bishonen” image. In the beginning of slimming process, due to incorrect method, he gained 3 kg instead of losing them. He was having headaches because of what happened. After he seek help from professionals, he managed to successfully lose his weight.
He also expressed he was not satisfied with his current height. He said, “I’m only 178m tall. I think I’m a bit short. I envy Daniel Henney’s and Cha Seung Won’s height. If only I am 180m tall.”
He’s not satisfied with some part of his face, too. He said, “Not only I’m short, my eyes don’t look good. They’re too slender, I don’t really like them. I like men’s eyes that are determined (have strength?) but I have smiling eyes *. I will have difficulties taking on villain role.” He added, from head to toe, the parts that he are satisfied are his arms and abdominal (stomach/chest ?) muscles.
* 但是我自己却长了一双笑眼 – this is the original sentence. IMO, I don’t really understand what is “笑眼” but I guess eyes that do have strong power or funny eyes.
