Lee Dong Wook once again guested on Yoo Jae Suk’s YouTube talk show “Pinggyego.”


When asked by Yoo Jae Suk where he gets his energy from, Lee Dong Wook replied, “I used to prefer being alone, but these days when I’m alone, I tend to overthink. I feel refreshed when I meet you guys here and have a chat. I feel good right now.”

However, Yoo Jae Suk joked that his expression didn’t match his words. To this, Lee Dong Wook confessed, “Honestly, I have a lot of worries these days. I seem to hit a slump every four to five years, and I think I’m going through that phase now. But I don’t know what’s causing it. I don’t think it’s because I’ve been working without rest. I felt more at ease when I would just immerse myself in a project without thinking too much.”

The actor reflected on how he dealt with such situations in the past. “I didn’t use to talk about this. I would just bottle it up and agonize over it. But I feel that talking about it and letting it out is really important,” he shared. Then emphasizing that he doesn’t expect to get answers from Yoo Jae Suk or anyone else by opening up about it, he added, “Actually, I don’t know the answer either. But I think it’s important to just express that I’m going through this situation and living with this feeling.”

In response, Yoo Jae Suk empathized with him, saying, “Putting your body to work is one of the most effective ways to distance oneself from such concerns.”

Echoing Yoo Jae Suk’s thoughts, Lee Dong Wook shared why he enjoys fishing. “I don’t think about anything else during the 7-8 hours I’m on the boat. The only goal is to catch fish,” he said. “I hope that (for viewers) watching ‘Pinggyego’ will bring a lot of laughter and help relieve your worries and concerns.”
