Choi Jin Hyuk Talks About How Paying Off His Family’s Debt Motivated Him To Become Healthier
Choi Jin Hyuk shared some heart-aching stories about his past.
Choi Jin Hyuk revealed in response, “When I was in my 20s, I worked especially harder because I had to pay off my family’s debt. At the time, working out to build muscles was the hardest thing for me to do.”
He continued, “I once felt embarrassed because of my body. It was when I was starring in the drama ‘Pasta.’ The production team made a sudden request to take my shirt off. However, I was the only one who couldn’t. Other actors were ready, but I was the only one who had never lifted weights.”
Choi Jin Hyuk concluded, “Ever since then, I’ve become stricter about my diet. I didn’t eat rice for a year, and I only ate chicken breasts, sweet potatoes, and potatoes. I realized that I should be healthier if I wanted to take care of my family.”
When asked about the family debt, Choi Jin Hyuk answered that he paid it all back before he went to serve in the military.
