►►F.CUZ’s LeeU, “I joined wrestling and lost 28kg (62 pounds) in a month”
F.Cuz’s LeeU recently appeared on SBS E!TV Jo HyungGi and Park JoonKyu’s Brother Restaurant where he revealed his childhood pains at being an outcast. He spoke about his father, famous trot singer Sul WoonDo, and said, “Because of my dad’s hairstyles and outfits, the kids used to tease me and called me ‘Sparkly’s Kid’.”
However, it didn’t stop just there. LeeU revealed that he used to weigh around 220 lbs (100kg). His weight sparked some more harsh criticism and jokes from his so-called “friends” and some from his very own dad.
“I told my dad that I wanted to be a singer when I was in my first year of junior high, and he told me, ‘Instead of becoming a singer, join wrestling.’ The impact of his words made me lose 62 lbs (28 kg) in one month.
I know by now you’re all gaping at the screen and wondering if you read the numbers right. Yes, it is 28 kg in one month! Wanna know the secret to LeeU’s fast weight loss? LeeU began Hapkido, a Korean martial art, and started a diet. He mercilessly followed a steady diet regime, kept track of all the food he ate in a notebook, and calculated his calorie intake. He even resisted all the delicious foods that his father tried tempting him with!
After hearing LeeU’s slight feelings of resentment towards his father as a child, Sul Woon Do smiled and just laughed it off by saying, “But now that LeeU’s brother is a pro at fighting, all of the kids that used to bother LeeU are taken care of.”
