Lee Joo Young Shares Why Her Parents Were So Happy About Her “Running Man” Appearance
On June 12, Lee Joo Young participated in an interview with DongA Ilbo for her upcoming film “Baseball Girl.” As she jumped right into this film after her latest drama “Itaewon Class,” Lee Joo Young shared that she hasn’t rest once for the past few years. She explained, “Although I started acting late, I think my parents are starting to feel reassured now that their daughter is getting busier.”
Lee Joo Young continued, “There’s a long period of waiting in between filming a movie and its release. I think they’re feeling like that because the result is finally here. I feel good showing myself as an actress to those closest to me.”
The actress explained that the happiest her parents had been was actually when she appeared on SBS’s “Running Man.” “Parents are definitely happiest when their child appears on TV,” she explained with a laugh.
Lee Joo Young continued, “They were so happy when I said I was appearing on ‘Running Man.’ I think they were happy that their daughter was going on a variety show that many people watch. They said they enjoyed watching it. Fascinatingly enough, after my appearance, I received calls from people I previously couldn’t get in touch with who said, ‘I enjoyed your episode.'”
