Ahn Jae Hyun starved to stay thin
Let's now add Ahn Jae Hyun to the growing list of celebrities who have starved themselves in order to obtain, or maintain, a thin physique. The My Love From Another Star and You are All Surrounded star candidly revealed his battle with weight in a recent interview with Newsen.
Prior to acting, Ahn Jae Hyun began his career as a fashion model. With modeling comes the obvious task of walking the runway, and Ahn Jae Hyun revealed that before walking, he would sometimes have to eat a little something just to prevent himself from fainting: "There were times my hands would shake from starving during fashion shows. I would eat a row of gimbap before going on stage to keep from fainting. In my opinion male models watch their weight more than female models do."

He went on to talk about how he would usually avoid eating carbs while dieting and the struggle he had with binge eating as a result of constantly restricting his food intake. However, there's no need to be concerned about his health. Ahn Jae Hyun then ended the conversation about his weight struggles with this comforting statement: "I realized that health is the most important after I started acting. Instead of starving, I try to eat nut products now. I've been eating them regularly because everything gets worse if I lose my health."
It's nice to know he's chosen a more healthy and safe way to maintain his gorgeous physique. Currently he's starring alongside Tomorrow's Cantabile's leading man Joo Won in the film Fashion King, which recently premiered in Korean theaters.
