SHINee’s Taemin Explains How He Lost Weight for His Solo Debut

By in News posted Oct August 22nd, 2014 No comments

SHINee‘s Taemin talked about how he maintains his body figure the way it is, especially for his solo debut.

On today’s episode of SBS Power FM‘s “Cultwo Show” where Taemin and rookie girl group Red Velvet were guests, SHINee’s youngest member was asked about his current weight of 57kg that he revealed on another show.

DJ Jung Chan Woo asked Taemin why he is losing weight like this when he already has a thin body, to which Taemin replied saying: “I have the tendency to gain weight easily and I can’t really do any diet at all. My trainer made me try dieting and exercise but I think somewhere along the line, it was miscalculated and I ended up losing a lot of weight.”

Meanwhile, Taemin performed his title track “Danger” and b-side track “Pretty Boy” with EXO’s Kai on today’s M!Countdown
