Lee Byung Hun said to a question MC Ryu Si Hyun asked on how he got his six packs, “Because we were making real a scene from a comic, I wanted to be perfect. I had no choice but to work out. (Laugh) I was relatively slimmer for the prequel, but this time I worked hard to get a chunky body.”

The actor took on the role of Storm Shadow to take on a slew of big action scenes. In the process, he had to open up his six packs, along with a bigger and chunkier body compared to how he appeared in the original G.I.Joe.

“It didn’t take long for the six packs to become a one pack after coming to Korea,” he said. “It’s not easy to maintain. In the film [King of Joseon], however, there’s a scene in which I have to take off my clothes. It was good though that the director wanted a normal body this time.”

He finished, “I can never say that a film is going to be fun when I’m promoting it after shooting it, but I feel after my few months of shooting that it’s going to be even better than the prequel,” he finished.

G.I.Joe 2, starring Lee Byung Hun, Bruce Willis, Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum and Adrianne Palicki, will premiere in the summer. The film will first start screening in America on June 29.
