Jo Kwon Savagely Recalls Sobbing Over Changmin’s Visuals When They First Met

After 8 years of training, Jo Kwon met his new bandmate, Changmin 3 months prior to 2AM’s debut.

Jo Kwon recently appeared on KBS‘s Immortal Songs: World Star, where he shared a savage story about when he first met his bandmate, Changmin, prior to 2AM‘s debut.

In the special, Jo Kwon and Changmin appeared on TV together for the first time since 2016.

And after revealing that his role model is Rain, Jo Kwon shared that he trained for 8 years, while Changmin only trained for 3 months.

Jo Kwon was so curious about who will be the final member to join the group. As soon as he heard a member was selected, he grabbed his laptop and ran to check who it was.

We were missing our final member, and when I heard that he was finally selected, I picked up my laptop and ran.

But when he opened his laptop and checked Changmin’s photo, he couldn’t help but sob at his visuals!

I cried.

While Changmin admitted that he transformed drastically since then, Jo Kwon explained just how shocking his visuals were before their debut.

Changmin Hyung weighed a lot back then, and I think he got around 30 moles extracted.

And Jo Kwon just couldn’t believe it at the time.

I just thought, ‘He’s supposed to be an idol…’

— Jo Kwon

Contrary to Jo Kwon’s worry, Changmin lost 11 kilograms (around 24 pounds) and had moles extracted in just under a month prior to their debut!

But Jo Kwon will probably never let Changmin live it down.
