Hallyu star Jang Geun Suk shocked netizens with just how he managed to dramatically lose weight in only two months. The 29-year-old Asia's Prince stirred a social media frenzy after he posted on Instagram Tuesday a photo of himself looking a lot different than his last public appearance only two months ago.

The photo that made heads stir captured Jang Geun Suk in his workout clothes sitting on a fitness mat after apparently completing an exhausting workout. The star looked spent from the rigorous physical training but the lean look of his face caught many by surprise, according to Koreaboo. Fans couldn't believe that it was only in Dec. 31, 2016 at the SBS Drama Awards when he showed up with his chubby face to accept the Top Excellence Award for his performance of "The Royal Gambler."

The star of "You're Beautiful" noticeably gained weight in July last year when he made an appearance at an airport. Netizens and media outlets reportedly bashed the actor for having gained weight and for having almost lost the charms of his handsome face as his chubby cheeks made him unrecognizable.

The actor, who rose to fame in the 2008 hit drama "Beethoven Virus," used to show off on social media his workout routine. "(Did) aerobics until dawn at the club," tweeted Jang Geun Suk in 2014 with an accompanying picture of himself lying on a bench press and looking at his phone held up with his two hands as he took a break.

"And (now), weights," he added. "I'm a faithful man. Now, my expectations are great." 

The actor also revealed in an interview then his unique Soju Diet. According to DramaFever, he said he'd usually watch what he eats and match it with his exercise but would turn to drinking soju if he really needed to shed weight quickly. He said he'd then skip food for five days straight and just fill himself with Soju.
