Fans were eager to know more about her role, Kim Bok Joo. With a shy smile, Lee admits that it was difficult for her to portray Bok Joo. It was challenging for her to become Bok Joo so she worked really hard for the drama. She also mentioned that the physical preparation it took to portray the character was difficult, but she was able to pull it off. In line with that, when asked about her special talent, Lee says that she is actually more comedic than Bok Joo in real life.

Additionally, Lee addressed the expression coined by Bok Joo and her friends, “swag!” When asked what experience is swag for her, Lee cited being in Manila with her fans, eliciting excited shrieks from fans.

And finally, when asked about Season 2 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, Lee gave fans hope when she said she will discuss it with the director and writer of the drama.

Reflections of a Swag Queen

Lee used to be a model before trying her hand at acting. She explained that it was fun for her to try out acting, but that she really had to look deep down to be able to act well. About new roles she wants to portray, Lee thinks that everything is new to her, so there is no specific role yet that she wants to do. Right now, she just enjoys acting in different dramas.

Lee is thankful for her first drama, It’s Ok, That’s Love. She said that she was very grateful for the chance to work with great senior actors. Working with them inspired her further to be an actress.

Lee was really excited to be in Manila. She mentioned that even while she had short hair because of Bok Joo, she wanted to come. Which is why she was really glad to finally meet her Filipino fans. In fact, returning to the Philippines is part of her bucket list. She adds living abroad for a month and having great dramas as part of her bucket list, too.

Lee sweetly sang “From Now On” from the OST of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo as her song to her Filipino fans.

The following day, July 27, Lee met with more of her fans for “Be Joyful: Lee Sung Kyoung in Manila.”
