Picking bean paste stew as her soul food, the actress, who used to undergo surgery for thyroid cancer, shared, “If I’m feeling out of it or out of energy, it’s like… When I’ve had a lot of wine, it’s like my body needs it. In those cases, I cook some bean paste stew on my own. You have to cook the rice along with it. When I’m drinking, I try as much not to eat snacks. If I eat snacks, will I lose my abs?”
In response to the question, “What’s your go to exercise?”, Uhm Jung Hwa immediately replied, “Abs workouts!”. She continued, “I think I’ve been filming for about one and a half years, so in order to regain my muscles, I’ve been working out consistently. Arms, abs and hip thrusts!”.
The actress also showed her extraordinary affection for abs exercise by choosing it as her secret to being young. She explained, “When I’m filming, I can’t go on a low carb-high fat diet, however, once the filming is over, I do the low carb-high fat diet. Chicken breasts and vegetables. I keep an eye on how many grams I’m eating. I also do intermittent fasting. Keeping my meal timings as far as possible can keep you feeling young. Is that why I seem young?”.
