> Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter Wang Leehom flaunted his abs for a China fashion magazine cover photoshoot, Sin Chew Daily reported.
Wang rarely flaunts his physique but while preparing for a concert, he worked out and shed about 10% of his body fat.
He was pleasantly surprised to see extra muscle around his six-pack, adding: “I now have 14 abs!”
Aside from working out, he has been practising tai chi over the last two years.
“Tai chi is a must before I perform at a concert.
“I have noticed similarities between tai chi and singing. There must be a natural flow – sometimes you have to be gentle, sometimes you need to exert power,” he said.
