“Big Man” Actress Lee Da Hee Talks About Her Height and Strict Diet
Originally a model, Lee Da Hee is 176 cm (5’9”) tall, and weighs 49 kg (108 lbs). She said, “As an actress, I don’t think being tall is a good thing. If you’re tall, there’s a preconception that you won’t look as good with actors. When I was a model, I wanted to be tall, but now it’s just the opposite.”
She continued, “Because I’m tall, if I gain weight, I look so much bigger. I diet a lot, and currently I weigh about 49 to 50 kg.” The actress said, “If I gain weight at all, I just stop eating.”
“Big Man,” also starring Kang Ji Hwan, airs its first episode today (April 28), and is about a third-rate lowlife who suddenly becomes the eldest son of a large corporation.
