Since she debuted at such a young age, she started her career under the care of her parents and agency, and she was so focused on acting even into adulthood, that she confessed that she didn’t know how to do anything on her own until recently.

In an interview with Arena last December, Kim So Yeon shared that she learned the most about life after marrying actor Lee Sang Woo back in 2017.

I don’t know if my views changed during my 26 years as an actress. Actually, I think I changed the most after getting married 3 years ago.

Kim So Yeon explained that because she spent all her time acting, she didn’t know how to make bank transactions or go online shopping.

So her now-husband taught her how.

When we were dating, Sang Woo took me to a bank and made me a bank account. I even learned how to make my own bank transactions.

Not only did Lee Sang Woo teach her how to manage her money, but he even showed her a new way of life.

I just lived my life going to the same restaurants whether it was good or not. But Sang Woo likes to explore new places and search for places with good food. I’m having a fun time going to new places that I’ve never been before.

Kim So Yeon confessed that as an actress, she missed out on a lot of essential things, which Lee Sang Woo introduced once they got married.

I’m even experiencing owning things under my name for the first time. I only felt like I was independent after meeting Lee Sang Woo. I should’ve had such experiences as an actress, but I missed out.

Kim So Yeon and Lee Sang Woo met on the set of MBC‘s Happy Home in 2016, and after dating for a year, they got married in 2017.
