On the recent episode of “Knee Drop Guru,” which was aired on July 11, actress and amateur boxer Lee Shi Young appeared as a special guest.

During the show, Lee Shi Young revealed why she had to hide her age. She explained, “When I was accepted to the agency, I was told that I am too old to have a good chance at auditions. They recommended that I should lie about my age. For actresses, there is a big difference between 25 and 27.”

Lee Shi Young continued, “When I went to auditions and said I am 27, the directors often told me to get married rather than trying to get acting roles. I was told to get married quite often.”

She added, “As soon as I began to act professionally, I revealed my real age. I did it so I could feel comfortable.”

Lee Shi Young was born on April 17, 1982, making her 32 years old in Korean age.
