Lee Hyori talked about her worries and struggle dealing with a disease called syringoma, an eye disease, on a recent show.
On the SBS show, “Magic Eye,” which was aired on the 29th of July, Lee Hyori started by answering a question about her looks, and said that she also has some dissatisfaction with her appearance. She then opened up about her condition and how little bumps can be seen under her eyes. Called syringoma, it is condition when non-cancerous bumps form, usually along the tear ducts, lower eyelid, or upper cheeks. She also continued to explain that there is no cure.
She explained that luckily, syringoma is not dangerous or harmful, and has no effect on health. However, living as a singer and celebrity with high definition cameras being able to focus on every pore, she did admit that she was concerned about them.
"I had syringoma since I was in elementary school. It doesn’t hurt and has no effect on living. However, in the world of HD, I do worry about it when there are close up shots of my face. I did receive surgery, but scars remained and wrinkles also increased. I asked the hospital chief about it, and he said there were some severe cases where people wanted to die because of syringoma. After finding out, I even joined a cafe about a project preventing syringoma. People wrote, ‘Even celebrity Lee Hyori is living, let’s gather strength ourselves also.’ In the cafe community, I became the diva of syringoma."
and ended with a smile, making the MC and guests laugh.
Netizens responded saying, “I don’t think she needs to worry,” “Makeup skills are so good nowadays,” and “If she didn’t say anything, nobody would have known.”
