Moving is currently one of South Korea’s most popular K-Dramas. Airing on Disney+, it is about three teens with supernatural powers inherited from their parents.

Rookie actor Lee Jung Ha gained attention when he shared that he gained 30kg (66 lbs) for the role. As he plays Bong Seok, who’s weight is strictly governed in order to help him hide his flying abilities, he had to pack on some pounds.

As such, he was able to pull off the role of Bong Seok realistically. As soon as filming concluded, Lee Jung Ha worked harder to shed the weight. On September 10, 2023, photos of his “after” began trending on social media.

Wow, look at Lee Jung Ha’s weight loss. His drive is legendary. FR, where did Bong Seok disappear to?

The tweet soon gained over 1.3 million views in just a day. His jawline was evidently sharper, and he dropped any weight gain he had for the drama.

Fans were both impressed and shocked.

I hope that Lee Jung Ha immediately drops his diet secrets.

As Moving was filmed around May 2022, it’s been around a year since then. He slowly and steadily dropped the pounds. Through Jung Ha’s social media, you can see that he also works out. He captioned a bike riding post in July 2023 with “slowly returning [to my original state].”

We have to give him props for the dedication to the role. Read about his initial weight gain below.
