Lim Soo-jung had to get her weight down to just 39 kg to shoot her latest film.
The actress went through a punishing weight loss process to act as Young-gun, who believes herself to be a cyborg, in Park Chan-wook's new movie, "I'm a Cyborg, but That's Okay."
"The hardest thing about shooting the film was having to make Lim starve," the director confessed.
Lim endured a few months of eating only raw sweet potato and pieces of apple. On top of that, on days when she did not have to go to the set, she went to a fitness center to work out. The movie is released on Dec. 7.
