All the male and female cast members shared the living room, kitchen, and washroom, divided household chores, and interacted socially with each other. He joined other cast members like model Lee So-ra, former 2NE1 member Park Bom, and actor Lee Dong-wook.

On an appearance in MBC’s Radio Star, Jo Se-ho shared his close relationship with Roommate’s Lee Dong-wook. Lee Dong-wook’s popularity surged through the popularity of super-hit drama Goblin.

On one of Roommate episodes, Jo Se-ho tried to imitate BigBang’s Taeyang. All the other cast members laughed at his entrance into the living room. Though he didn’t look like Taeyang, Jo Se-ho tried his best to dance and imitate Taeyang’s choreography

On another episode, Jo Se-ho and Nana traveled in his car. While they were driving, Jo Se-ho urged Nana to sing along with him. At first she disagreed with him when she found out that he chose Jung Gi-go’s song Some. However, she changed her mind and sang along with Jo Se-ho.

Weight Loss Journey

Jo Se-ho joined the cast of On Style’s My Bodyguard, a variety TV program that was aired from April 28th to June 30th, 2016. The program challenged cast members to make a proportional body within only 12 weeks. Other cast members on the show were Lee Dong-wook, Jo Yoon-hee, and Park Na-rae.

Jo Se-ho was given a challenge to reduce his weight as much as 10 kg within the 12 weeks of airing the show. In the middle of the challenge, on the 7th week, Jo Se-ho tried to find out his weight. It turned out that he had lost 9.2 kg in 7 weeks. At the start of the program, his weight was 87.3 kg, while during the 7th week, his weight was 78.1 kg. His face became narrower; he lost much of his cheek fat and he looked more masculine. However, he added that he did not feel satisfied and he would try to shed more weight.
