Kang Ji Hwan Gains 10 Kgs for ‘Detective Cha’ Then Sheds 20 Kgs in Two Weeks
Kang Ji Hwan’s amazing body transformation is stirring netizens.
For his role as the overweight and unappealing, detective Cha for the upcoming comedy movie Detective Cha, the normally sharp-looking Kang Ji Hwan had to gain 10 kilograms (about 22 pounds) to produce his protruding belly.
While fans were shocked by the difference in looks from Kang Ji Hwan′s weight gain, he created a bigger stir after it was revealed he shed 20 kilograms (about 44 pounds) in a span of two weeks through exercise and weight training. The after pictures of Kang Ji Hwan showed the actor back to his slim and fit self and a complete 180 degree change from his character for the movie.
Netizens commented on the before-and-after photos saying, “Kang Ji Hwan is really something”, “To make that kind of body in two weeks must have taken some real hardcore training” and “I’m looking forward to this movie.”
Detective Cha stars Kang Ji Hwan as a detective who must go undercover in the fashion world to solve a case. The movie also stars Sung Yuri and will premiere towards the end of May.
