BTS’s Jin Wanted To Gain Weight While On Break, Here’s Why He Couldn’t

He couldn’t reach his goal.

In a recently uploaded live broadcast, BTS‘s Jin revealed that he has been trying to add a few pounds while he was away on vacation. He shared his current weight, his goal weight, and the truth behind why he hasn’t been able to reach that goal weight yet.


Jin mentioned that he meant to gain some weight while on hiatus from promotions. He was 59 kilograms (130 pounds) right before he went on break…


… and he wanted to reach at least 63 kilograms (138 pounds), so he can look better. He tried eating sweets, like honey, and fattening foods, like pizza and fried chicken.

I even tried eating like five meals a day…

Jin explained that he did gain some weight from eating well – possibly too much…

I was successful at putting on some weight.

— Jin


… but not to the point that he desired.

But I didn’t reach my goal. I was 63 kilograms once throughout the whole break. Now I’m down a couple kilograms… I don’t think I’ll go down to the 50s again, but it has been hard to gain and keep the weight.

— Jin


He blamed his failed weight-gain plan on games. While Jin is playing games, he forgets to eat and often skips meals – which leads to weight loss.

I mean, I’m not trying to lose any weight. I’m trying to put on extra pounds and keep them. But when I’m playing, I can’t eat and the food turns cold so… I guess games are bad for me.

— Jin


Jin playfully recommended extended hours of playing games if anyone is looking for a way to lose weight!

If you’re trying to shed some pounds, try playing games – like me!

— Jin


While Jin looks good no matter what, ARMYs wish he would take good care of himself and focus on staying healthy!
