Checking in on Moon Geun Young is a regular part of my K-ent coverage and it’s nice to see new pictures of her and get a new interview to start 2018. She sat down with EBS1 show Time of Being Another and actually broke down crying when reminded of a long ago interview she gave when she was 21 years old. For that interview she was asked if she hated anyone and she shockingly said herself. Nearly ten years later Moon Geun Young teared up being reminded of that answer and said that she no longer hates herself. The reason she said that years ago was because she struggled with how to react to people around her, and when something negative happened she never confronted it and instead internalized it as something wrong with her or her perception. Now she’s learned to love herself and allow her voice to be heard. I’m so relieved and proud of her for navigating the confusion of being in her twenties coupled with the complexities of the entertainment industry.
