Jeon So Min also revealed that she struggles to balance work and free time.

I like working and being really busy, but because it’s too hectic, I don’t feel even the smallest emotion. And if I try to relax, I don’t see any results, so it’s hard to establish that balance.

Lee Yu Bi also revealed that she usually spent time alone when she was a student. However, she also clarified that she didn’t want people to feel bad for her.

We made up later and played together. But I was good at spending time by myself. I went to fast-food restaurants after school by myself and ate. It’s not a sad story.

However, Park Ha Sun recently revealed that she got rejected from acting roles because she was married and had children!

What upsets me, even more, is that even if they’re older people with older mindsets, they say they only want to work with unmarried actresses when they’re married with children themselves. So I got pushed down the casting list for quite some time.

In a recent interview, Lee Sang Yeob spoke a bit about his career as an actor and how he still struggles with knowing what to do on set.

I still don’t know much about the set. Every moment is different, and all the people are different as well. I’m afraid to assume that I know a lot.

However, Lee Sang Yeob also confessed that he has had a lot of difficult moments in his career and that he sometimes questioned if he had any attractive qualities.

I feel like I lived thinking I’m an actor without any attractive qualities. I also thought that my acting didn’t give people any enjoyment and that I was a person who wasn’t able to entertain others.

— Lee Sang Yeob

Thankfully, Lee Sang Yeob is trying his best to overcome these thoughts.

I’m overcoming it little by little by working non-stop. It’s comforting when people react to what I do.
