Actor Lee Sang Yoon revealed why he won’t appear on tvN‘s “Problematic Men.”
Lee Sang Yoon, who is well-known for his sexy brain, studied physics at Seoul National University, which is one of the most prestigious colleges in Korea.
While “Problematic Men,” a variety show on which intelligent individuals (mostly men) come out to solve difficult problems might fit Lee Sang Yoon perfectly, the actor revealed that he refused to go on the show because “I’m afraid that my real self will get found out after I go on the show.”
He added, “I watched the show and the questions were too hard. It’s similar to when athletes go on athletic variety shows, they are expected to do well. I was afraid that if I went on it and did badly, people would say, ‘Why is he so bad?'”
He also revealed that he doesn’t often go on variety shows in general because he believes that people who are funny should be the ones on the shows.
However, he did show some interest in SBS‘s “Law of the Jungle,” saying, “Last year, a close hyung of mine said that we should go on it together, but I couldn’t go because it conflicted with aonther schedule. But when I think back, the two things I hate are bugs and ghosts. When I watch scary movies, I can’t sleep because I keep thinking about it. When you watch ‘Law of the Jungle,’ they eat bugs sometimes. It would be fine for me to be uncomfortable while sleeping, but I hate even looking at bugs.” He added with laughter, “I guess the conclusion is that even ‘Law of the Jungle’ is too much.”
