SHINee's Minho never had to be concerned about his weight. The singer revealed he has high metabolism which keeps him slim.
During a guest appearance on tvN's Wednesday Food Talk, the 25-year-old singer was asked if he has ever gained weight. Minho responded, "I think it has to do with my body's type too, and I also love sports so much, so that must have something to do with it too."
"When I used to eat a lot, I ate about 8-9 servings of meat. These days, I don't go to such extremes, but still, I eat the normal amount that most people eat, plus 2 more bowls of rice, plus a bowl of noodles to top it off," he added.
In a short time, Minho achieved global success, but the road to success was not an easy one. The South Korean singer/actor, whose real name is Choi Min-ho, had previously admitted he misses his family.
During an episode of 48 Hours, Minho spent time with his father, and even visited his father's favorite restaurant. Minho said: "All of my family members have visited this restaurant except me."
He added: "I don't have many memories with my dad. I didn't know when I was young but my dad was dedicated and worked hard for my hyung and me. My mother also helped us to grow up stronger than anyone else."
Minho revealed: "To be honest, I often hid my feelings. I lived apart [from my family] at an early age, and I didn't want to show my busy [struggling] sides. I didn't like seeing them upset. So I tried to be strong and acted like I was tough."
