Lee Sung Kyung Talks About How “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” Brought Out Her Real Personality
On March 23, fashion magazine “Grazia” released a photo shoot featuring actress Lee Sung Kyung, who is currently taking a much deserved break after finishing her drama “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.”
Lee Sung Kyung expressed her love for traveling and said, “Traveling is the only way that I can actually rest. Even if I am technically resting, if I’m in Korea, it doesn’t actually feel like a break because there’s always something I could be doing.”
The actress also talked about what kind of vacation she liked and said, “I like spending time alone so I enjoy vacations where I live like a local, sleep whenever I feel like it, and sit in a cafe all day if that’s what I want to do.”
When asked if she has become more laid-back since “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo,” Lee Sung Kyung replied, “My personality has always been [on the laid-back side] but I’ve been able to show it more since filming “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.” I’m very thankful that I was able to show viewers this side of me through the drama.”
In terms of characters that she wants to take on in the future, the actress expressed that she wanted to take on a bright character that has a personality similar to her own.
She continued, “I also think a traditional period drama would be fun as well but I’m going to push that back a little bit. For now, I’m going to continue taking on roles that are right for me currently.”
Meanwhile, Lee Sung Kyung is currently looking over offers for her next project.
