Fans React After ‘Squid Game’ Wi Ha-joon Goes Shirtless To Flaunt Washboard Abs (Photos)
Korean heartthrob Wi Ha-Joon was on the cover of Men’s Health Korea October issue, and fans are in awe of the shirtless look he went for.
The 30-year-old actor's chiseled abs were on full display as he went with a trouser and a men's coat with nothing underneath for the fabled photoshoot. All the while, he was gracing the camera with a beaming smile.
Wi Ha-Joon's First Magazine Cover Since Debut
The publication also revealed that this was his first time flaunting his swoon-worthy body since his debut. The actor has amassed a renewed fandom since his breakout hit in the highly anticipated Netflix series Squid Game.
In an Instagram update from the actor himself, he revealed that this issue of Men's Health Korea was the first time he had graced a magazine cover in his life. It also reflected how this feature was rightly earned.
Ha-Joon is the protagonist of the Squid Game, which has quickly taken over the world. The show was ranked second place in the global Netflix drama rankings and is the opening name in the US Netflix drama category.
A Carousel of Shirtless Snaps
The good news for swooning fans is that the cover picture with the shirtless pose wasn't the only snap that the Korean heartthrob flaunted for the recent issue. He had a complete photo shoot with a slew of different looks—all flaunting his jaw-dropping physique.
And don't worry if you aren't subscribed to the Korean issue of the magazine. Ha-Joon was kind enough to share a slide show of alluring snaps from that photoshoot on his Instagram as well.
The snaps included everything from lifting his t-shirt to show his perfectly chiseled abs to posing with a sleeveless top to give fans a good look at his strong, muscular biceps.
Fans Swoon Over the Shirtless Photos
Of course, with a carousel of pictures like that, fans couldn't help but react! As soon as the images were up on his Instagram, fans flocked into the comments section to pay their compliments.

Needless to say, the comments section was drowning in all sorts of heart emojis and lit emojis.
In all honesty, though, fans have been drooling over the Korean hunk's looks and acting prowess since long before the Men's Health Korea photoshoot. Check out some of these tweets:

The Secret to Wi Ha-Joon's Body
Apart from gracing the magazine cover, the actor was also featured in an interview where he revealed the secret behind his awe-inspiring body. He explained that the body was a culmination of all the training he had done since his military days. He added,
I have been doing weight training steadily since the military. I usually go to the gym 5 days a week to exercise, and these days, I mainly do home workouts at home because of COVID-19.
He was also kind enough to share three workout routines that he enjoyed the most so that fans that look up to him could follow his lead.
Ha-Joon played Hwang Jun-ho, a detective in the homicide world in Squid Game. He joins the squid game group searching for his missing brother and uncovers the secrets hidden within the group.
