Kim Junsu Loses 6kg For ′Elisabeth′
JYJ’s Kim Junsu recently lost 6kg from his already slim figure.
A rep from JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment recently told enews, “Kim Junsu recently lost 6kg. Even the people around him can’t recognize him because he’s so different. His face looks so different after he lost weight.”
After losing the weight, Kim Junsu practically became a new man with sharper features and a leaner face. His round and cute image was nowhere to be seen, replaced by a sharp and chic man.
The reason he lost so much weight even though he didn’t have to was because of his role in the musical Elisabeth. There are many scenes in which he needs to don see-through clothes, prompting him to work out to stand in front of his fans with a better physique.
The rep added, “Kim Junsu is pouring his passion in Elisabeth. To show thanks toward his fans, who are always cheering passionately for him, he’s working hard to take care of himself. We hope you continue to show him your unwavering support.”
Elisabeth tells the story of an actual queen named Elisabeth from the Habsburg Family with a fantasy twist involving death, and is greatly popular around the world. Kim Junsu was cast as Tod, a mystic man who falls in love with Queen Elisabeth.
