Actor Lee Byung Hun spoke frankly about his struggle with an ongoing panic disorder.

In an interview for the November issue of 'Esquire' magazine, Lee Byung Hun revealed, "I started suffering from a panic disorder a few years ago. I'm the kind of person who gets nervous easily. From the instant my panic disorder starts up, I can't breathe. I don't know why it happens."

He added, "During times when I can't run away like at fan meetings, radio, or other public appearances, I can't hear anything or think about anything. I wonder, 'What do I do? Should I just run away? Would that be okay,' for at least 10 minutes. In the end, I decide to just faint there if I must and hold out. When I'm extremely afraid, I just ask myself, 'What is there to life,' and move on. I tend to be optimistic."

Considering his long list of film and drama projects, this is unexpected!

    can't he like ask for a break when it happens? Because if he actually does get a panic attack that's really not pretty.... it will shock everyone who's witnessing it.

    It's good that he's speaking out.  I've heard that many musicians take Xanax before a performance, and then instead of suffering they can enjoy their life.

    Having had panic attacks before, I know exactly how he feels. He's a brave man for sticking out a fan signing in the midst of a panic attack.
