Lee Sung Kyung sat for an interview at a cafe on January 12 where she admitted to being depressed by some aspects of playing Kim Bok Joo in 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.'
"Early on, I did 'Doctors,' and then haven't been able to take a break since, so it was hard for me," she revealed. "For 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo,' I ate floury food and worked hard to gain weight. Honestly, saying 'gain weight' means it's not good for the body. When I gained weight and acted as Bok Joo, I was fine, but when I was myself, I felt different and my clothes wouldn't fit, so I was somewhat depressed. My fat was sticking out and this body could be irreversible and my skin got bad. I was depressed when I was myself again. However, when I started up [acting] again, I did so happily."
