While some of us common folk sign up to gyms and starve ourselves to get that perfect summer body, a lucky few are just naturally born with an ectomorph body type.

But what is an ectomorph?

An ectomorph is that annoying friend who eats all they want and never gets fat. While you‘re complaining about gaining weight, they’re complaining about not being able to get fat.

Some people say that being an ectromorph might not be such a good thing but in Korea, a country where body image and looks are cardinal in society, being an ectomorph is definitely a good thing, especially with all the delectable foods everywhere.

Let’s take a look at some of the lucky stars blessed with an ectomorph body!

These lucky idols can eat all they want and never worry about getting fat. They don’t have to go on painfully long diets, eating only one meal a day and feeling weak and tired. They‘re talented, good-looking and they can eat to their hearts’ content.
