On the upcoming episode of “Same Bed, Different Dreams,” Song Jae Rim appears as a guest and talks about his fluctuating weight problems.
After listening to a submission from a mother who is worried for her daughter because of her extreme dieting measures, Song Jae Rim reveals, “I once weighed about 58 kg (127 lbs) in the past,” which was very underweight for his 180 cm (5.9 ft) height.
He continues, “When I was filming ‘The Moon Embracing the Sun,’ I was 58 kg, but I didn’t know my face looked so thin back then. I thought I was average.”
Then he says, “I weighed 76 kg (167 lbs) a few days ago, but I lost weight and and I’m now 68 kg (149 lbs),” and reassures others that he is maintaining a healthy weight for now.
To the young student who is starving herself to make herself skinny, Song Jae Rim says, “The things you consume now turns into energy when you enter your thirties.”
Fans can hear more of Song Jae Rim’s story when the next episode of “Same Bed, Different Dreams” airs on August 29 at 8:45 p.m. KST.
