Lee Hyori’s Worry

Lee Hyori: I am afraid of infidelity, so I was scared of getting married. Not my husband’s infidelity, but mine. In the past I changed my boyfriend every two years. And I am going to live 60 or 50 more years! I am very afraid. What if I cheat on my husband and get berated by everyone in the country?  But now that fear works too. (Host: So you went to the desolated Sogil-ri.) Yes, yes, that’s right.

Have you told your husband about that? I tell him about that everyday. He said he is worried about me, too.
