Model-actress Hong Jin Kyung, whom many would remember for her supporting role in the hit SBS drama “My Love from the Stars” as Jun Ji Hyun‘s bestfriend, is showing how strong she is as she battles cancer.
In a recent guesting on the SBS program “Good Eating, Good Living — Did You Eat?,” Hong Jin Kyung traveled together with the show’s host MC Lee Young Ja and Lim Ji Ho to Jeju Island to look for food reserves.
As MC Lee Young Ja looked at Hong Jin Kyung’s bald head, she asked the model-actress why she doesn’t use a wig. Hong Jin Kyung replied, “Because the wind is so strong here in Jeju Island, I opted to wear a hat instead of a wig.”
MC Lee Young Ja couldn’t help but be amazed at Hong Jin Kyung’s strong appearance and said, “You’re really cool,” to which the model-actress responded jokingly, “Cool? Yesterday I heard that I was (like) an unmarried old man,” and tried to make the conversation light.
“Didn’t you get discouraged from that comment?,” asked MC Lee Young Ja. “I’m receiving treatment, isn’t this something that couldn’t be helped? I even lost my eyebrows before but it has gotten so much better now. And when I was in fashion, there were a lot of people who go for the bald look so it’s okay,” said Hong Jin Kyung.
Model-actress Hong Jin Kyung has recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer on an episode of SBS’ “Healing Camp.” The actress is currently receiving treatment and continues to make appearances both on television and public events.
Stay strong, Hong Jin Kyung! We hope for your recovery!
