Lee Hyori shared why she made the decision to take a break from social media.
In the September 14 episode of KakaoTV’s “Face ID”, Lee Hyori was shown in the waiting room of a photo shoot. She pondered as she took selfies and asked people around her for their opinion if they could upload them to social media. After filming, she had a video call with her husband Lee Sang Soon.
A month later, on another shoot set, Lee Hyori said while getting makeup done, “I’m trying to get rid of Instagram but I don’t know how I can’t.” She added, “It’s because I always think about it when I have it.”
When asked about her reason for wanting to delete social media, Lee Hyori said, “One of the different reasons is that I spend an hour or two a day looking at it.” She showed a picture of her cat Soon Yi and said, “I looked endlessly on Instagram and then found that Soon Yi kept staring at me like that. I asked myself, “When was Yi staring at me like that soon?” And I was so sorry. “
“That happened to me a lot,” she continued. “[Lee Sang Soon] and I spend more time looking at our phones than talking to each other. Another reason is that DM is asking me for all kinds of favors. There are many people who ask me to lend them money, that is the most common thing. There are so many that I can’t even lend it to everyone. When someone asks me a favor like this, I find it hard to ignore. “
Lee Hyori continued, “The main reason wasn’t the recent malicious comments. I can just accept that and deal with it.” She then deleted her Instagram and chose “Miscellaneous” as the reason.
She called Lee Sang Soon to let him know she’d deleted it and he said, “Nice work. Congratulations. Congratulations on escaping the cyber world.”
Lee Hyori said, “It feels like retiring. I thought,” Instagram has a different power now. “I said I would use a different method of communicating with my fans. What else is there? Letters?”
While talking about her fans, she said, “I was going to quit after I uploaded one final message, but did I suddenly quit? I even wrote it in English for global fans, ”and she showed off her memo app.
Lee Hyori recently announced her intentions to move away from social media and posted one final selfie on her Instagram on September 3 before deactivating her account.
