Ken Chu has been looking heavier than his F4 bandmates these days.

He also revealed that he has difficulty getting over the negative feelings he has over his weight gain.

Recently, Ken took part in a Chinese variety programme called Burning Calories, reports Asianpopnews.

It was reported that he was suddenly in pain and had to skip the first half of the show.

He finally revealed the reason behind his weight gain after that incident.

Ken is suffering from a rare disease called Fibromyalgia which is a rheumatic condition characterised by widespread musculoskeletal pain.

This makes it difficult for Ken to do any vigorous exercises.

Over the past few years, he has been mocked on his weight.

Since he did not want others to know about his weight gain, he did not know how to explain this.

Breaking down in tears, Ken said, “Hence, I have been enduring silently all these years. I felt that I had enough.”

Ken also revealed that this was the reason why he had agreed to record this show.

“This could be my last chance. I want to find that healthy feeling again. At least, I hope to find the painless feeling.”

Ken’s weight was 90.2 kg when he first joined the programme in January.

Due to his upcoming wedding banquet, he is trying to lose weight and he now weighs 80 kg.
