K-Pop idols are generally known for their toned bodies and affinity for exercise. After all, it’s usually not easy to achieve such a look without rigorous physical activity. But what about idols who absolutely hate exercise?
Here are nine male idols that don’t like to exercise, but netizens love them just the same.
1. Stray Kids’ Seungmin
In an episode of SKZ CODE, Stray Kids members attempted flying yoga. Seungmin had a bit of a difficult time, and his members could not stop laughing.
2. PENTAGON’s Kino
Fans recall when PENTAGON member Hongseok, who is known for working out, tried to make Kino exercise. Kino wasn’t too happy.

3. NCT DREAM’s Renjun

4. Super Junior’s Heechul
For fans, Heechul hitting the gym is always shocking because he is open about not liking to work out. Seeing Heechul in the gym with Kim Jong Kook was particularly funny.

6. MONSTA X’s Minhyuk
Fans of MONSTA X know that Minhyuk doesn’t like exercise. In fact, he has said that the only exercise he does is breathing. Fans were surprised when he showed off his strength on a recent episode of Knowing Bros. It must be natural!

Soobin has stated many times that he does not like to exercise. Fans recall his lack of enthusiasm when participating in MOA Gymnastics.
8. TREASURE’s Junkyu
Junkyu is another idol that doesn’t seem to be that fond of exercise, despite having to do it. Somebody save him, please.
When Junkyu is asked to exercise:
🐨: My feet is on fire
🐨: My lungs are bleeding

9. BTS’ J-Hope
While the rest of BTS have been bulking up lately, one Redditor mentions that they’ve never heard J-Hope say that he likes to exercise. Well, beside dancing of course!
