The Return of Super Junior Kangin: Losing Weight and Gaining Compassion

Super Junior member Kangin left for his military service ridden with a lot of scandal. At that point, it felt as though going to the military to serve can be his escape. He returned last year, just right before leader Lee Teuk also left for his own military service time.  And until then, his return to the group was quite understated.  Shortly after his discharge from service, Kangin opened up about his concerns when he went to serve, that his actions could spell the destruction of Super Junior.  Seeing that the group was still intact and quite at the height still when he returned, he took it upon himself to make sure that his return will bring good to the group.  He officially rejoined Super Junior activities in the latter half of 2012.

Lately, Kangin is getting quite noticeable due to the weight he's lost with his detox diet.  While the Super Junior member has definitely become more handsome and even moreso manly with his appearance, there is something else the rest of us doesn't know.  Not only is Kangin busy losing weight, but he also is busy losing traces of negativity. He went to Vietnam recently to take part in a charity program.  In Vietnam, he spent time with children doing art projects and playing ball. The trip was made possible with his participation in Good Neighbor, a charity organization in South Korea.  He was chosen as one of ten participating artists doing good deeds for the 10th Anniversary issue of In Style magazine.  Ever the person who thinks of others first before himself, Kangin wanted to blend in with the kids he visited.  He didn't want to look like a foreigner, and wanted the kids to know him for who he is.  

The kids in Vietnam likely found a brother in Kangin during those days he visited, like how Super Junior now sees him taking more lead as he helps carry the weight of Leeteuk's absence from the group.  Kangin is not just looking good these days, he's doing good.
