Park Shin Hye has always struggled with staying fit but her current diet and exercise regimen has left her looking perfect.
Ever since her acting debut, it was Park Shin Hye’s “baby face” and innocent features that caught the most attention. Throughout her career, Park Shin Hye had remained vocal of her struggles of staying in fit shape.
Park Shin Hye started her career with a debut in the hit drama series, Stairway To Heaven. As a young actress, she did not only receive comments on her acting skills but also towards her youthful appearance and round face.
It was for this same appearance at an event for Salvatore Ferragamo in 2011 where the negative comments she received for her figure created a turning point. Despite being used to netizens calling her names due to her size in the past, it was this photo taken from an unflattering angle that became viral.
In an interview in 2014, Park Shin Hye acknowledged the fact that she was not naturally thin. Because of this, she makes sure to exercise in order to stay in shape. She particularly enjoys water sports and hiking, and has made sure to include both of them as a part of her fitness regime.
Although she has gradually lost weight throughout the years, it was her slim appearance the 2016 drama Doctors that got everyone talking, especially in the scene where she tries to box Kim Rae Won!
Aside from working out and going into sports such as boxing and martial arts, Park Shin Hye’s weight loss was also due to a strict meal regime. Follow Me Season 5 revealed that Park Shin Hye’s followed this extreme diet:
Breakfast: 1 cucumber, 1 glass of fat-free milk
Lunch: Half bowl of rice, 2 cabbage leaves

Her efforts to stay fit have also spread to her fans. Park Shin Hye held a sporting event for her fans instead of a traditional fan meet. She reserved a gym and held various athletic and sporting contests. This was her way of interacting with her official fan club members through a healthy body and mind.
