Lee Sung-kyung confessed that last year was the most mentally challenging year of her life. She shared, “My body couldn’t take a rest so in terms of hormone, both dopamine and serotonin didn’t come out. As my mentality got so weak, the way I relieved them didn’t work and stimulating things that harm me temporarily made me feel relieved.”

She added, “It was because I wasn’t doing On/Off well. In one interview, one actor said that he/she asks oneself a question that leads to self-blame. I thought that question I ask myself should at least not a self-blame and it should be about taking care of myself asking ‘How are you now? Are you okay?’ I hope the questions are about looking after me. I really think that’s a good thought and that healed me.”
