Since her debut in the entertainment industry, Lee Seung Yeon has established herself as a fashionista. 

Lee Seung Yeon said that when she starred in MBC’s “Cinderella”, she wore very little makeup, and had her hair permed at a local beauty salon. Since she didn’t receive professional styling before appearing on TV, her bangs kept falling down without being fixed.

Lee Seung Yeon was bothered by her flowing bangs, so she tied a handkerchief to her head during the filming and appeared on TV like that. Since then, her style has become very popular among many Korean women.

After her departure from the airline, Lee Seung Yeon had a hard time. When the story of her great success as an actress became known, it drew admiration.
