Most K-Pop fans know about T.O.P’s ‘big’ past before Big Bang, but how did an overweight T.O.P go from heavyset to become the hip hop heavyweight, who rakes in nine million won through commercial deals, he is today?
Entertainment news program enews sought to reveal the truth behind the Big Bang rapper’s drastic image transformation on the May 25 broadcast of the show, and the facts may surprise you.
According to the segment, YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk ordered T.O.P to lose 20 kg before his debut, but what’s more surprising is that the rapper dropped the weight in a mere 40 days.
So, just how did T.O.P slim down? For one week, the rapper’s diet consisted of only yanggaeng, a sweet jelly made of red beans, which supposedly help in ridding the body of toxins.
We′ll pass on the diet, but it sure did T.O.P a lot of good.
