It hasn’t escaped anyone’s notice that NCT DREAM‘s Jeno has an impressively toned physique. In fact, he recently gained plenty of attention for it after fans got to see the behind-the-scenes of NCT DREAM’s trip to Germany. But in NCT 127 Doyoung‘s recent vlog, Jeno revealed the real reason why he likes to work out.
Given how physically demanding it is to be a K-Pop idol, most idols have a very strict health routine that usually involves rigorous workouts, and the members of NCT are no exception.
Yet, there are also those who like to work out for fun as well. In fact, in a live stream during NCT‘s 2021 comeback, WayV‘s Xiaojun spilled that he is gym buddies with Jeno, Jaemin, and NCT 127’s Jaehyun.
so xiaojun's gym buddies are jeno, jaemin, and jaehyun.

The subject of exercise came up when NCT 127’s Doyoung, who has always been particularly close friends with Jeno, called him while filming his quarantine vlog in Japan. As they spoke on the phone, Jeno revealed his real reason for working out, and funnily enough, it isn’t health or fun-related.
Doyoung explained in his vlog that he didn’t have much to do while quarantining at the hotel. Doyoung is not one of those people who likes to work out, so he complained to Jeno on the phone about having had to do it out of boredom.
Then Doyoung asked Jeno about his own feelings on working out, saying, “Do you enjoy exercising?” Jeno did not hesitate to give his answer, hilariously stating, “It’s not for fun. It’s to look better in clothes.”
And he’s got a point! Whether it’s airport fits…
…or workout clothes, Jeno easily pulls it all off with his impressive body proportions.

Doyoung himself agreed, “Your body does look pretty. I wish my butt could be that toned.”
Jeno denied ‘having a butt,’ but Doyoung was insistent. He reassured him, saying, “Your body is slim and muscular.” (Which Jeno thankfully did not deny.)
Later on, as they wrapped up the subject, Doyoung explained that he really had thought Jeno liked exercising just for fun. But Jeno once again joked that he only did it for the wide shoulders.
It’s impossible not to agree with Doyoung’s point about Jeno’s great physique. And while Jeno joked about his real motivation for working out, it doesn’t really matter what it is, considering the results we are getting!
