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.
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…
