“Entertainment company Live” reported that Lee Kyung-mi is now living her life as a Buddhist nun.
On the evening of November 5th, the broadcast of KBS 2TV’s program “Entertainment company Live”, which gives information about the entertainment industry, held an “All-time Legend” section to talk about the stars who were loved in the 1980s.
Accordingly, singer Lee Kyung-mi, who is called “IU of the 1980s” since she was an all-rounder celebrity who can both sing and write her lyrics, is said to be currently living as a Buddhist nun.
Lee Kyung-mi, who was once called “the nation’s sister”, used to appear in many advertisements, starting with a beverage CF. It is said that at that time, she was so famous to the point that she received 10 million won as an advertising model, and the payment she earned for singing one song could be worth a house. In addition, after singing the theme song of drama “Samogok (사모곡)”, Lee Kyung-mi reached the highest peak of her career. However, she suddenly disappeared in the middle of her heyday.
After making the decision to leave her home and her normal life, Lee Kyung-mi confessed, “This is not my place because the hunger in my heart cannot be filled with such things. I thought a lot about what I would do with the money I earned. I also wondered where to go after earning this much money. I’ve always wanted to become a monk.”
Meanwhile, KBS 2TV’s “Entertainment company Live” is a program that conducts in-depth interviews with various celebrities and cultural artists and presents the latest news and issues in the Korean entertainment industry. This show is aired every Friday at 8:30 P.M (KST).
