Super Junior‘s Ryeowook revealed his past photos and discussed his chubbier past much to the surprise of the other guests and MCs on ‘Come to Play‘.
On May 28th episode, Ryewook confessed, ”I was quite chubby when I was young. I weighed about 82 kb (~181 lbs),” much to everyone’s surprise considering that he is one of the smaller framed members of Super Junior. “When our family would eat galbi (Korean BBQ) during traditional holidays, I would be told to stop eating.”
When the photos were revealed on screen, Ryeowook made the studio laugh as he commented, “I guess I did eat a lot.”
After viewing these photos, viewers commented, “Wow! He looks really different from now!“, “He’s unrecognizable“, and “That’s really Ryeowook?”
On the same episode, Ryeowook also lamented, “I get stressed out because of my short height… There is about 10 cm height difference between me and Siwon. Sometimes, during interviews, he’ll sometimes put his arms around my shoulder, making me look even smaller, and making me despise him a bit.”
