Hugh and Nichola Gwon (aka, My Korean Husband) are most well known for their videos and comics related to Korea and their intercultural marriage, but Hugh recently made headlines for something else - he has lost a heap of weight in preparation for fatherhood.

Called "The Last Chance" project, Hugh decided to embark on a 6-month journey to shed weight in preparation for his upcoming fatherhood responsibilities. A self-professed "fat kid" throughout his life, Hugh found motivation to lose weight when he saw what Nichola had to go through when the couple started IVF treatment.

From curbing his diet, getting into a healthier routine, and regular exercise thanks to a personal trainer, Hugh succeeded in completing his project in the best (and healthiest) possible way.

For those interested in seeing Hugh's 6-month weight loss journey, check out My Korean Husband's video right here:
