On New Year’s Day, Wilber Pan made a confident declaration on Instagram: “I will lose weight in 2020, or my surname isn’t Pan!”
He certainly seems to be taking that proclamation very seriously. The Taiwanese-American singer was recently in Milan, Italy to attend Men’s Fashion Week and shared several stylish photos from the trip, in which he appears to have indeed shed a few pounds compared to last year.
The comments section of his posts soon became flooded with compliments from both fans and fellow celebrities, including Taiwanese singers Christine Fan (“You really look slimmer”) and Renée Chen (“Ur face is hella small now [sic]”). Taiwanese actress Doris Lai jokingly asked how many meals he skipped, and Hong Kong singer G.E.M. made her excited observation of Wilber’s slimmer figure with multiple exclamation points and fire emojis.
This is not the first time the 39-year-old has gotten attention for his weight loss. In April 2018, he displayed such a drastic transformation that fans went from teasing him about his plumpness to showing concern for his health.
Let’s hope he neither overdoes any diets, nor allows the extra weight to pile back on again. Jiayou, Wilber!
