No, just lost some weight. Before Secret Garden started shooting, I lost weight on purpose for character building. I lost about 7-8 Kg at the beginning of the shoot.

No. We have a very tight shooting schedule and just trying to boost up the popularity of the drama, and we are moving in full force. Please do not ask this kind of question anymore.
