On the talk show Happy Together 3, Cho Hye Jung talked about how she had to weigh herself in front of her producing director every day to show her weight-gain process and, after reaching a certain point, looking at the scale didn’t help anymore. “I’m a woman, and I hated seeing myself get fat.”, she stated.

Since the drama’s finale, however, Cho Hye Jung has been on a mission to lose all the weight she gained for the role. The talented and committed actress posted a video on her Instagram of herself working hard at shedding the pounds and she was already looking thinner.

Between the drama’s finale on February 11 and these images, Cho Hye Jung lost about 7 kg (15 lbs) and has promised to lose even more, stating that she always loses weight in her legs first, but still has a long way to go.

“I work out every day and eat less, but there are so many delicious foods in the world!”
