Kim Hyun Joong is busy trying to get fit for his upcoming drama City Conquest.
The actor talked about his preparations for City Conquest in an interview with the Japanese magazine Josei Jisin on July 10.
City Conquest is a drama based on the manga of the same title by cartoonist Shin Hyung Bin. The drama cast Kim Hyun Joong as its main lead Mir.
The drama will be his first action peace. Kim Hyun Joong said, “I attended action school because I wanted to show a lot of my new self to my fans and viewers.”
He added, “I’m trying to lose the fat and pump up my muscle through exercise and a diet. My weight hasn’t changed much, but my body fat has decreased to seven percent.” The average percentage of body fat for males is 15-20 percent, meaning that Kim Hyung Joong has only half or one-third of the average amount of body fat.
City Conquest will be taking Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Seung Woo, Jung Yu Mi and Nam Gung Min to Japan for about two weeks for a shoot on July 10.
