Kim Soo Young Experiences “Yo-Yo Effect” After Losing 70 Kilograms


Comedian Kim Soo Young has admitted that he has experienced the “yo-yo effect”after losing 70 kilograms (approximately 155 pounds) on “Gag Concert – Last Health Boy.”

Kim Soo Young discusses his weight loss on the June 11 “Miracle Men and Women” special of KBS 2TV’s “Happy Together 3.” Appearing alongside Shin Sung Woo, Jin Goo, Lee Hyun Woo, Yoo Min Sang, Kim Soo Young, and Kim Ha Ra, the comedian describes his miraculous weight-loss story.

“There’s a rumor that you’ve already experienced a bit of the yo-yo effect,” Yoo Jae Suk asks him during the show. In response, Kim Soo Young admits, “A little bit. I’ve put 5 kilograms back on in the last three weeks, going from 98 kilograms to 103.6 kilograms. While I originally lost 70 kilograms, my weight loss total is still 65 kilograms,” he explains.


The comedian also describes his weight loss diet during the broadcast, saying, “I’m not hungry in the mornings, so I blend up milk, bananas, strawberries, and apples and drink that, and then I exercise. I then rest for 30 minutes, work, and then for lunch I have brown rice, chicken breast, salad, and five cherry tomatoes,” he says.

Despite putting a bit of the weight back on following the end of “Last Health Boy,” Kim Soo Young appears to remain motivated to continue his weight loss journey. On June 17, he uploaded the following picture to his personal Facebook, writing, “At the gym with Hyun Gyu. Smells like handsome guy.” In the photo, Kim Soo Young can be seen with Bok Hyun Gyu, showing off his thinner face and frame.
