On the most recent episode of SBS “Healing Camp,” Lee Jun Ki made an appearance and talked earnestly about his immature behaviors as a rising star. He said that due to his fast growing popularity, he suffered from the “celebrity sickness.” 

He explained the “‘celebrity sickness” as a sense of entitlement he had in the past. He said, “I felt like everyone was more or less using me. I thought to myself, ‘Why do I have to put up with this?’ ‘Isn’t everyone making a living because I’m doing great?'” 

He added, “It happened so suddenly. I just became rude when dealing with people. When I met up with reporters for interviews, I confronted them ‘Why are you not prepared for this?’ and I even asked one reporter in particular, ‘Do you not know what professional journalism is?'” 

Lee Jun Ki expressed much regret, “I was crazy. I was not in the right mind. In the middle of never-ending interviews and filming schedule, I didn’t have any time to rest and that contributed to my ‘celebrity sickness’ very much.”
