Cho Hye-jung’s Weight Loss and Diet Plan
Cho Hye-jung was a little heavy after starring in the drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo. To star in the drama, Cho Hye-jung had to increase her weight and make her body look fat because she joined the weightlifting team. Even so, Cho Hye-jung still looks beautiful and adorable, and was praised for being very total in playing her role.
She also explained, “actually during the filming, the PD made me to eat much, and he kept asking me to control my weight, not to lose weight. However, I think it was no help. When I weighted myself on the scale, I tended to do some diet. Thus, I just forget the scale, and keep eating for the drama.”
Then, in 2017, after finishing Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo, Cho Hye-jung tried to go on a diet and lose weight again. It didn’t take long for her to surprise people with her new, thinner body. She had left behind her heavier figure and made a major weight transformation..
Reporting from Koreaboo, on the variety show Happy Together 3, Cho Hye-jung talked about how she had herself in front of her producing director every day to show her weight-gain process while shooting the drama, and after reaching a certain point, looking at the scale didn’t help anymore. She said, “I’m a woman, and I hated seeing myself get fat.”
Cho Hye-jung lost about 7 kg since wrapping up filming, and has to lose even more, stating that she always loses weight in her legs first, but still has a long way to go. She said, “I work out every day and eat less, but there are so many delicious foods in the world!” Cho Hye-jung really proved herself successful in dieting and now she looks more adorable.
