1st Gen Idol Kim Hyung Jun Of Taesaja Talks About Job As A Delivery Person And His Happiness
Kim Hyung Jun of the first generation idol group Taesaja took to Instagram to reassure everyone about his current life and job.
Recently, he posted on Instagram to talk about working as a delivery person for the Korean online retailer Coupang, and he posted some photos from his time spent doing his job.
There are many people who are worried about me, but I’m working hard and having fun. It’s not true that I was running a business and it failed, or that I’m doing it as a hobby because it’s lucrative, haha. I’m just working hard at life. I do it whenever I have time, during the day or at night. I think I’ve delivered about 30,000 packages so far. To be honest, I was having a hard time mentally up until last year, but as I started doing this job, my mental health improved and I became more cheerful too. It’s also been a way to lose weight, since in January I was 84 kilograms (approximately 185 pounds) and while doing this job I’ve gone down to 72 kilograms (approximately 159 pounds) (I lose weight even if I eat everything I want). I managed my diet for the past month for the sake of ‘Sugar Man 3’ and now I’ve gone down to 67 kilograms (148 pounds). When I wake up in the early hours of the morning, I see the other people who are working hard at life and I think, ‘Ah, I’d better work hard at life too,’ and I’m making money and losing weight, and it’s been a big help for me mentally. I think I’ve really worked hard at life this year and it’s been a meaningful 2019.
He added in the hashtags that he’s also sleeping well, the work isn’t as hard as he’d expected, and he always drives safe. He also wrote, “There’s no such thing as a high or low rank when it comes to work. Money that’s earned through hard work is more precious.”

#쿠팡 에 대한 얘기가 많아서 쿠팡플렉서할때 찍은 사진들 몇장 투척합니당. 일하면서 사진찍을 일이 많지는 않아서 사진이 많지는 않네여 ㅎㅎ 걱정하시는 분들도 많은데 열심히 재미있게 살고있습니다. 사업하다 망해서 하는 것도 아니구요 돈이 많아서 취미로 하는 것도 아니구요 ㅎㅎ 그냥 열심히 사는거져 ^^ 낮 밤 시간나는대로 하고있어요. 지금까지 3만개정도 배송한것같네요. 사실 작년까지는 좀 정신적으로 힘든 시간을 보내고있었는데 이 일을 시작하면서 정신적으로도 좋아지고 성격자체가 밝아졌네요. 1월에 84키로였던 몸무게도 배송일을 하면서 72키로까지 빠져서 #다이어트 도 되었구요 (먹고 싶은거 다 먹어도 살이 빠지더라구요). #슈가맨3 를 위해서 마지막한달은 식단까지 조절하니 67키로까지 내려갔네요 ㅎㅎ 새벽에 일할땐 그시간에 열심히 살고 계신 다른 분들 보면서 아 나도 열심히 살아야겠구나 생각도 들고 돈도 벌고 살빠지고 정신적으로도 많은 도움이 되었네요. 이번 한해는 참 열심히 살았구나 생각도 들고 의미있는 2019년이네요. #태사자 #태사자김형준 #김형준 #쿠팡플렉서 #일하니 잠도 잘 잠 #생각만큼 힘들지않음 #언제나 안전운전 #고객님의 기프트는 소중하게 #레말마드리드 경기있는날은 강제휴무 #슈가맨 #어른들의 산타 쿠팡맨 #직업엔 no귀천 #열심히일해서 번돈은 더 소중함
