Lee Jang Woo Felt Like Dying When Copying IU’s Diet
Guess crazy idol diets aren′t for everyone - even pretty boys.
Lee Jang Woo attended the press conference for the upcoming drama Pretty Boy along with the other members of the cast, Kang Keun Suk, IU and Han Chae Young.
When a reporter commented how good he looks, Lee Jang Woo said, “I realized that as I get older it becomes harder to lose weight. So I tried out IU’s diet plan, but felt like I was going to die on day three.”
He added, “IU’s diet consists of eating one apple and one sweet potato a day. On the third day I couldn’t go on any longer so the next day I binge ate, and ended up at the same weight as before I started the diet.”
Lee Jang Woo will play the free-spirited David Choi in Pretty Boy, who secretly likes Kim Botong, played by IU, and tries all he can in order to get her attention.
Written by Miracle in Cell No. 7’s Yoo Young Ah and produced by Flower Boys Next Door’s Jung Jung Hw, the highly anticipated drama Pretty Boy will air its first episode on November 20.
