Actress Lee Yoo Young finally revealed her feelings about the untimely death of her boyfriend, actor Kim Joo Hyuk. This is the first time Lee appeared in public and talked about what she went through after her boyfriend passed away.

Lee admitted that she still misses Kim, who died in a car crash last year. During a press meeting for her upcoming film, Marionette, the actress was asked about how she is holding up after Kim's death. The actress admitted that she spent most of the time alone at home when Kim died. Lee said she, however, knows that Kim would like her to be okay so she is trying to keep herself busy with work.

"I still miss him. He would always encourage me warmly, so I think he would like to see me doing well anywhere I go. With that in mind, I'm trying to focus on my career while holding onto that support he gave me," Lee emotionally replied after a long pause.

After Kim's death, Lee took a break from the spotlight. This is her first public appearance since Kim's funeral.  The actor died from a severe head injury that he sustained from a fatal car accident on October 30, 2017. The autopsy report confirmed that he died from cranial fracture contrary to earlier reports that he had a heart attack that caused the car crash.

Lee Yoo Young in Marionette and Upcoming K-Drama

Lee shared her experiences while filming her new movie. She revealed how exhausting it was to film their action scenes. The actress leads the cast of Marionette along with Kim Hee-won.

The crime thriller film follows a female teacher, Han Seo-rin / Min-ah (Lee), who got involved in a serial murder case and will be hunted by a violent man. She will work with a former police detective, Oh Kook-Chul (Kim), to track down the killer. The movie is set to be released in South Korea in April.

Meanwhile, Lee will also appear in an MBC upcoming K-drama, titled You Drive Me Crazy!, opposite Two Cops star Kim Seon Ho. The mini-series will revolve around the lives of friends Eun Seong and Kim Rae Wan. Eun Seong (Lee) is a translator, while Kim Rae Wan (Kim) is a rising artist. 

Eun Seong is described as a brave woman who is always busy translating Korean and French documents. Since she has unpredictable attitude, she only has one male friend - Kim Rae Wan - who is described to be a good-looking guy with great personality. Their friendship will have an unexpected turn when they sleep together. Complications will arise before they eventually fall in love with each other.

You Drive Me Crazy! is directed by Hyun Sol Ip. The K-drama only has two episodes and is set to air in May on MBC.
