AB6IX‘s Lee Daehwi is gaining attention for his drop dead gorgeous visuals!
Three years ago, Daehwi revealed on Mnet‘s Not the Same Person You Used to Know that his weight was 51.5kg (113.5lbs). He was considered underweight as he had a BMI of 17.2 with a height of 173cm (5ft 7in).
Since he participated in Mnet’s Produce 101 Season 2, the singer-songwriter was known for his slim physique. Though fans have always appreciated his visuals, he said so himself that he hopes to gain weight.
I actually have to gain weight. I try to eat very late at night. I’m 51.5kg right now.

Fast forward several years later, and his wish has come true! Daehwi is said to have gained 8kg (17.6lbs) and it’s obvious from his recent photos that it’s all muscle.
Netizens have commented that he looks “awesome,” “healthy and handsome,” and “cool.” It did not escape their notice that it is difficult for a naturally skinny person to gain weight.
In the past, Daehwi stated that he had a hard time putting on weight because of the stress he’s under: “I can’t keep still. I always make work for myself, whether it be producing, writing lyrics, doing house chores.”
Now he’s finally reached his goal! Whether it’s 2017…
…or 2021, he always looks handsome!
That’s Daehwi’s insane glow-up!
