Lee Da Hee Opens Up About How She Overcame Stress About Her Tough Image Affecting Her Acting Career
In a recent interview and pictorial for Nylon Korea magazine, Lee Da Hee spoke candidly about her past concerns and how she had managed to leave them behind.
The actress, who is famous for her tall height and strong, confident image, confessed that she had once been worried that these same traits might negatively affect her acting career.
“In the past, the majority of dramas and films featured a lot of female characters that were innocent and obedient,” she explained. “I thought that I wasn’t well-suited to those kinds of roles, and there were times when I felt stressed because of that.”
“However, nowadays, I think we’re in a time when bold, confident women who know how to express themselves are leading the way,” she continued. “I feel like I’m now being recognized for many aspects of myself that I used to consider handicaps. Because of that, I’m also working hard to do my part.”
“I went through some difficult times in the past,” said Lee Da Hee, “but I think what’s important is to quietly, consistently work hard at a job you love.”
Lee Da Hee recently starred in the hit tvN drama “Search: WWW” and is currently hosting the popular Mnet show “Queendom.”
