Jang Geun Suk Suffered from Depression

OK – with this piece of news, I’m just waiting for something bad to happen to Jung Yong Hwa and/or Lee Hong Ki so that we can just finish cursing the fates of the You’re Beautiful stars. Really world – I dare ya.

Jang Geun Suk admitted that he suffered from depression from overworking last year. He shot Mary Stayed Out All Night, then went into “You’re My Pet,” and then did promotional activities, recorded singles and albums, toured Asia (Japan, Singapore and Taiwan), and only had about 25 days of rest total. He felt terrible because he felt that he wasn’t even living his own life, but rather the life of someone else.

The distance and constant traveling put a strain on his friendships and he even felt like he couldn’t do anything for himself. I wouldn’t be surprised if his management kept him busy and he had no choice but to follow like a puppet. I admire his hard work ethic, but again – I don’t believe in doing something if it’s going to take a toll on your health. I understand your dedication, but it’s never worth your health and well-being.

But there’s a happy ending. Ever since he started working and focusing on “You’re My Pet,” which had a more regular shooting schedule, he was able to get better nights’ sleep and live a more regular, stable life.

All the best, Jang Geun Suk! Don’t be like Park Shin Hye and insist on working when you shouldn’t! (The after effects of her car crash has also led to the postponement of episode 8 for Hearstrings.)

On a side note – it’s funny (to me) that these two “lovers” just had to suffer recently at the same time. Do you guys have some psychic connection on when you want to reveal your pain? Or your managements just have really good strategic timing…

  1. Seriously, It’s like one after the other with all my favorite ANJELL members… 😦 ….I’m glad he feels much better now, but depression usually isn’t something that just goes away, and I hope he seeks help when things get hard for him…I dont even want imagine a worst case scenario with him

  2. maybe they are psychologically connected..or maybe sukkie would like to be .but YH has the advantage now over sukkie and hongki since he is working with shinhye now,hehehe…

  3. my favorite band anjells (regardless if it is fictional)…and yes, right, they might be psychologically connected, hehe..maybe because they are very good friends….i read YH’s tweet to shinhye, i wonder if sukkie and hongki visited her personally…love them and i miss them together…im just happy that shinhye and YH are paired in a drama again…
