At the May 22 press conference for the upcoming tvN drama “Dating Agency: Cyrano,” lead Lee Chun Hee confessed he lost weight because of Girls’ Generation‘s Sooyoung.
He said, “When we were doing the poster shoot, I looked chubby standing next to Sooyoung. In truth, I did gain weight after marrying. I thought, ‘This isn’t good,’ and started to lose weight, currently having lost 8kg.”
Netizens responded variously to this news, commenting, “Sooyoung saved a man,” “How thin is she?” and “I’m jealousy that he gets to act with Sooyoung.”
“Dating Agency: Cyrano” stars Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung, Lee Jong Hyuk, and Lee Chun Hee. The drama will be about the lives and events of the people involved in the dating agency called “Cyrano,” which was originally a theater troupe that evolved to help awkward clients win over their loved ones through elaborate set-ups. It premiers May 27 on tvN. It has released character stills, a trailer, and has announced with additional character stills that SHINee‘s Taemin, actress Lee Yoon Ji and others will make cameo appearances.
