Actor Kang Dong Won has made his anticipated return to the big screen with two major pieces, “Kundo: Age of the Rampant” and “My Brilliant Life,” rewarding his fans for the long wait of four years.
Even in the midst of his hectic filming schedule, the star has put great effort into his caring for his figure. Known for his slim body, Kang Dong Won revealed he went through a rough period of gaining and losing weight for his two movies.
“Before we started filming [‘My Brilliant Life’], I gained ten kilograms (22 pounds). For my character in ‘Kundo,’ I got down to 64 kilograms (141 pounds), but right after wrapping it up, I put on a lot of weight and weighed 74 kilograms (163). I was on my heaviest since filming the movie ‘M,’ when I also weighed that much. My goal was to reach 75 or 76 kilograms, but I couldn’t do it,” the actor explained.
The model-turned-actor continued to reveal that his measurements have stayed the same since his debut. For over 12 years, he has maintained his weight of 68 kilograms (149 pounds). When asked for the reason, the star said, “If I cross that line, my face looks puffy.”
“My Brilliant Life” starring Kang Dong Won and Song Hye Gyo premieres on September 3.
