Gag Woman Lee Gook Joo has expressed the burden she feels because of her large popularity and the stress that her work is causing her.
On December 9, the gag woman opened up to her castmates on the SBS show “Roommate.” “I’m very thankful for my success, but I just don’t know how to handle this,” she said. “I’m so exhausted these days.”

She continued by saying, “I’m stressed to the point that I’m annoyed by every little thing. I am becoming distant from my friends. I feel like I can’t keep up with the schedule anymore. But I’m very thankful that I was able to come to work with such great people [on Roommate].”
“I was happiest when I did my Kim Bo Sung impersonation and people said, ‘Lee Gook Joo is funny,’ and laughed and cheered for me,” she recollected, crying. “I’m still thankful, but I’m the most tired I have ever been.”
