Lee Joon Gi also stopped eating rice and limited his carbohydrate intake, and it all started when he got injured while filming MBC‘s Scholar Who Walks the Night in 2015.

I injured my hamstring and nose, and my back and neck weren’t doing so well either. That’s when I decided to start taking better care of my body.
