In an interview with fashion magazine InStyle, actress and model Lee Sung Kyung spoke about her upcoming MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama, “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” (tentative title).
She said she’s putting on weight for her character in the drama. “I’ve already put on four kilograms (approximately 8.8 pounds). I wanted to be healthy and work out while adding weight, but in the end, I’m just eating a lot.”
Revealing how she gets through tough days on set, she said, “I can’t imagine myself without music and dance. I need them to do better and have fun on set. When I’m having a hard time, like while filming all night, I do my best to be more upbeat. For everyone.”
She’s basically the opposite of her character in “Doctors,” she said. “I thought a lot about how I might make [my character’s] inadequacy and sensitivity less hatable, but luckily, towards the end, she became much more mature, so I was very happy about that.”
The full photo shoot for Lee Sung Kyung can be seen in InStyle’s October issue.
