Actress Jeon Do Yeon revealed that she had a hard time after receiving the Best Actress prize at Cannes Festival in 2007 along with constant praises about her acting.

On September 20, her segment on MBC’s new variety program “Guest House” was aired and she had the opportunity to share her thoughts.

She shared, “People will say, ‘Nothing is impossible for Jeon Do Yeon because she won the best actress prize at Cannes Festival.’ But actually, people thought that I became an unapproachable actress because they thought I became something so great.”

She continued, “At some point, people will tell me to ‘get along with the public,’ and before I knew it, I already became disconnected with the public.”

Jeon Do Yeon was burdened by the praises, “An actress who can act,” “An actress other actors respect.” She further added, “Actually, those kinds of praises made me feel further from the public.”

In other news, “Guest House” is a reality talk show where stars will discuss their life, love and dreams in a natural setting.

Soompiers, what do you think about her concerns? Is receiving too much praise a bad thing?
