Lee Seo Jin Shares His Philosophy On Fame And Marriage
While relaxing in the hot springs, the actor and four cast members made a bet to decide on who would get to use a room by themselves. In the end, Lee Seo Jin won and got his own room.
Once back in their rooms, they had a conversation about various topics including dating and exercise. Lee Seo Jin then began to speak about fame, explaining, “Celebrities are people who live off of the love of the public. They need to be that much more modest and restrained. In Korea, people have extremely close relationships. They say people know all of their neighbors. That’s why you have to be even more careful. You have to be sensitive to how others view you.”
Later in the episode, Lee Seo Jin was sitting in a restaurant with Lee Seung Gi when the latter commented on the couples taking pictures together outside. Lee Seo Jin nonchalantly responded, “They’re going to break up soon,” to which Lee Seung Gi said, “I can’t believe I don’t feel mad at you when you say stuff like that. I’m jealous. You can say stuff like that without receiving hate.” However, Lee Seo Jin responded, “There are lots of people who dislike me. It’s tiring to try getting everyone to like you. Even if they don’t like me, it’s better not to get stressed. It would also be weird for me to suddenly be really nice like Lee Seung Gi. I get jealous of people who are good at expressing themselves.”
Lee Seung Gi also asked him if he was picky and cold when dating too, to which he shyly replied, “No.” As the conversation naturally headed to the topic of marriage, Lee Seo Jin shared, “I’m not getting married because I have no plans to do so. That’s why I’m still not familiar with the feeling of happiness you receive from your own children. People who have kids look so happy. I try not to take on the role of a father because I don’t think I’d be able to portray it properly.”
When asked, “What do you think love is?” Lee Seo Jin answered, “Love is three months. Getting along like friends lasts the longest.”
