Miss Lee Hyori had a very toned-down and homey photoshoot for 1st Look Vol. 73. Clad in sunny dresses and loose comfortable clothes, she posed for the camera and gave a candid interview about her married life, her new blog, and the latest controversies plaguing her life. Check out some interview highlights below!
1. The blog you set up by the end of May already recorded 210,000 visits. Every time you write something, it becomes a hot issue. At this point, it’s as good as other medias. What thought did you have when you started your blog?
Living in Jeju Island, I went through so many beautiful moments. Every day, I just feel something on a regular basis. I wanted to share these small emotions. I wanted to show the beautiful Mother Nature to the people living in the city. I hoped that my blog would be a way for people to take a short break. On the contrary, there were people who told me they felt a sense of deprivation. That’s why I’ve been somehow worried these days. I’ve been wondering if running this blog was the right thing to do. To be honest, it takes time and efforts. However, if it can’t be a positive influence, there’s no need for me to cling onto it. It’s not that I wanted to become again an issue or getting popularity because of this blog. It’s just that I wanted to share with more people these good moments. I didn’t think it would backfire like this.
Indeed. When there’s a typhoon, the wind blows a lot. I get up rather late. I drink a cup of tea and I walk my dogs. Then I have brunch and I tend to my garden, I pluck grass. I do the laundry if it needs to be done. In the evening, I either do embroidery or I paint/draw. Then I watch a movie with my husband, we have a glass of beer and we go to bed. We do nothing special. It’s great to see how quiet this place is. Being able to walk my dogs freely, being able to clearly separate the place where I rest and the place where I work, this is the greatest advantage about living in Jeju.
3. Is this full happiness possible because you have your partner by your side?
It is. Our house in Jeju is a bit of an out-of-the-way place. It can be scary. If it weren’t for my husband, I think I would have never had the courage to go to Jeju. He doesn’t have a 9-to-5 job and we do music together, so it was a good match. I think it’s an amazing blessing that we match each other in many ways. It’s good luck. There’s no one in this world that would be the perfect match, that would have all the qualifications that I want. Still, my husband and I are both lacking on some things, but I think it also makes us get along well and it’s something I’m thankful for.
