If you are among the many people who made a New Year’s resolution to get into shape or work out more, research data show that this is the week (the third week in January) that you begin to lose your motivation. But don’t give in to the overwhelming temptation to hang up your gym shoes and eat another donut just yet!
To help you keep your work-out resolution this year, we give you 10 stars and their rock-hard bodies from some of our favorite dramas to inspire you to keep working toward your fitness goal!
Vanness Wu — Autumn’s Concerto
Guang Xi (played by Vanness Wu) is the perfect package in the Taiwanese drama “Autumn’s Concerto” — wealthy, well educated, charismatic and oh-so-athletic. If we had a body like his, maybe we’d become all those things, too!
Han Ye Seul — Birth of a Beauty
If the sight of Joo Sang Wook and Han Ye Seul wearing tank tops doesn’t make you want to work out, we don’t know what will! Tae Hee (played by Joo Sang Wook) tells Sara (played by Han Ye Seul) that men are attracted to athletic body types like Kim Yun — with a BMI of 7.4 percent, body fat of only 10 percent and a waste size of 24 inches! Watch the inspiring workout scene in Episode 2 of the hit Korean drama “Birth of a Beauty”!
Luis Mario (played by Mario Cimarro) carries the burden of saving his family ranch from financial ruin on his beautifully tan, sculpted shoulders in the Venezuelan telenovela “Wild Cat.”

Flora (played by Carmen Villalobos) and Watusi (played by Khris Cifuentes) show how competitive champeta dancing can help sculpt your body in the Colombian telenovela “Made in Cartagena”!

What woman wouldn’t pick Leonardo (played by Julian Gil) over his best friend when the man — and his golden six-pack — can look this cool while lounging by the pool in Venezuelan telenovela “Eva Luna”?
Godfrey Gao — Never Give Up, Dodo
Both Li Dong (played by Mike Sui) and Xu Fei (played by Godfrey Gao) try to impress Dodo (played by Yin Hang) with their rippling muscles. Watch the hilarious scene involving lots of beer in Episode 1 of the Chinese web series!
