He then revealed that when he had lost some weight from a previous diet, Lee Soo Man had complimented him but also asked him a subtle question that made him consider dieting again.
“There were a few times where I’ve dieted, and when Lee Son Man walks by me he said, ‘You look good, dont you diet anymore?’ and it made me think I should go on a diet again.”
Shindong also revealed that another member of Super Junior will be starring on the show, to which he asked the staff to feed them more than others so that they could gain some weight.
A member of our group will be starring on the show and I hope we feed him a lot. Our members are overall too skinny.
