In the episode, Uee’s pleasant “alone” life, and Lee Si Eon’s day of recuperation were depicted.
First, Uee appeared, showing off a friendly charm. She often became one with the couch and flaunted her taste in spicy food, drawing attention. Later, she was seen practicing pole dance, proving why she was chosen as the center of her former K-POP group, After School.
Uee also frankly confessed to the hardships she faced as a celebrity. She shared how much stress she got from all the malicious comments that pointed out her “potbelly.” She then added, “Later, when I lost weight for a role in the drama, people started saying that I looked like I was suffering from anorexia. I was confused about which standards I should follow, and I thought everything was my problem.”
On the other hand, Lee Si Eon was seen recovering from his ear surgery. Due to the constant pain, he was sitting absent-mindedly, and even had a hard time taking a shower.
After being lethargic the entire morning, he stepped into the newly decorated terrace to realize romance. At the same time, Lee Si Eon, who challenged in quitting smoking, recorded his “Non-smoking song,” drawing attention.
I Live Alone, which captured the two distinct lives of Uee and Lee Si Eon, successfully presented a unique fun and the innermost stories of celebrities.
