Dubbed as the "Korean Hulk" due to his transformation, the MBC's reality show will highlight his diet and, most especially, his intense workout routine.
Premiering on September 17 at 10 PM KST, this will be the actor's return in "I Live Alone" after two years as he greets his fans with a bulk-up figure.
'I Live Alone' Features Namgoong Min's Workout Routine
From his toned body to his Hulk-like physique, the upcoming episode will showcase his exercise routine as he gears up for his new drama "The Veil."
This is also the reason why he opted to gain 10 kg of muscle as he took on the role of an elite National Intelligence Service (NIS) agent.
Moreover, he mentioned that he wanted to "look combative to anyone," hence his beef-up body.
For the September 17 episode, fans would get to peek at Namgoong Min's workout routine by focusing on cutting down the fat to make their muscle more defined and visible.
In a teaser, the "Hot Stove League" star shared that he spends two hours a day working out, even during the filming session.
He even called his workout a Spartan-like training due to its powerful drills.
At one point, the 43-year-old actor revealed his training's thoughts saying that he is "too greedy for exercise."
As for his secret diet, the reality show is set to unveil his protein mukbang for bulking up, which unfortunately has "no taste," according to the actor.
