Kwak Si-Yang, who has premiere of movie ‘Witness’ (literal translation) and drama ‘Four Men’ ahead of him, had to go through a drastic weight gain/loss.

The movie ‘Witness’ scheduled to premiere this summer is a thriller. The story revolves around a man who witnesses a murder and the murderer, as they accuse each other of the crime. In the movie, Kwak Si-Yang will appear as one of the cops among other celebrities.

For this movie, Kwak Si-Yang had to gain over 10kg in order to completely merge himself into his character. Regarding the weight gain, Kwak says “I just ate everything that I could” and revealed that he ate up to 4000 calories a day.

However, he lost the weight that he had gained for drama ‘Four Men’ immediately afterwards.
