Nationwide ratings for the episode that aired on March 1: 10.9% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+3756, -98] I want to continue seeing her doing modeling work but that must be my greediness, right? ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Unni hwaiting! 

2. [+3481, -83] Ah I really feel bad for her ㅠ Just like Hwasa said, she must've fought loneliness for 20 years... Imagine how hard it was for her to endure the hate comments that she's continues to receive even now

3. [+2429, -61] I cried once today because of Han Hye Jin and I cried again because of Chung Jae ㅠ (t/n: Chung Jae's part of the episode will be a separate post)

4. [+1461, -61] Han Hye Jin, it's amazing it you made it all the way up here~ I support you, hwaiting! I think you have a kind heart  

5. [+1237, -61] I support Han Hye Jin~! Stay strong

6. [+517, -17] I hope she remembers that there are more fans who are supporting her below the surface than a few haters above the surface....  

1. [+1772, -48] Imagine how scary it was to go abroad alone to work in your early twenties.... ㅜㅜ  

2. [+1139, -36] Han Hye Jin's 20th modeling anniversary - I had the thought that it must've been quite hard for Han Hye Jin to endure those long years so I teared up... I support you

3. [+1139, -53] Chung Jae-ssi! I'm so proud of you and I understood today when I saw that you wanted to say something but you were kinda bearing it! I think sometimes it's good if you go to the mountains once in a while and scream out to relieve stress. I learned a lot and felt a lot... I also cried with you... I hope you're filled with good things from now on... I'm supporting you. Come out often on 'I Live Alone' ^^

4. [+608, -15] A moving special episode 

5. [+446, -21] While watching today's episode, I've never cried this much before - the whole time watching, my heart hurt and as a fan, I'm always supporting you, always stay strong, you're the best

6. [+298, -11] I watched a documentary that caught Han Hye Jin working in the U.S... I can't forget the scene where she was wearing heels and running like crazy because she didn't want to be late to a fashion show. During the time where racial discrimination was severe, imagine how much she suffered in New York. Because there was that period, it must be why we have the current Han Hye Jin. Whether it's your image as an entertainer or your image as a model, I support your passion ^^

t/n: Han Hye Jin and Kim Won Kyung have been working as models for 20 years already. They're really close friends and to celebrate their career, they went to Hawaii together to do a self-photoshoot. At the end of their trip, they were looking back at their careers and Han Hye Jin asked Kim Won Kyung, "Would you still work as a model if you were born again? Or would you be a photographer, stylist, or hair stylist/makeup artist? You have to choose one." And Kim Won Kyung answered model and said, "Taking pictures is so hard". And Han Hye Jin added, "Modeling is the easiest~". Kim Won Kyung then asked Han Hye Jin the same question. Han Hye Jin answered, "I have no skills... I'm really glad I grew up tall."  

During her private interview, Han Hye Jin was asked, "How was your 20th anniversary trip?" She answered, "I don't know, it was really complicated..." and then she teared up. "When I look back at my career, I was really upset over why I wasn't exactly happy or why I wasn't fully enjoying it. Every time I talked about work, my mom would be so sad... Oh, I can't... (she broke into tears)". 

She then continued, "Modeling is a job where you only do it with your looks. It might sound cold and cruel but it's a job where you do it with the shell you have - just because I say I put in the effort, the factors I can change are limited. As I come out on TV, I let myself get known by a lot of people and I get recognized but when I hear things like, "I don't understand how she modeled with those conditions, with that face up until now", it made me really upset. Because my mom raised me well like this but as a woman, as my mother's daughter, and as someone's girlfriend, in these many roles, I didn't want to acknowledge it but there were difficult factors."  Here's the link to the second part of the interview - X (YouTube).   

1. [+4970, -102] While watching, I cried with her..... Why were her words "There aren't skills I can do so I'm glad I was born tall" so sad.... She seems like a person who has a lot of things, she looks lonely
↪ [+367, -8] I cried with her ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
↪ [+810, -4] Rather than her looking lonely... I want to say that she worked hard. 

2. [+3857, -76] Seriously, can the hate commenters stop now, celebrities aren't your emotional trash can, celebrities are human too, do you not have any thoughts after seeing someone get hurt and crying over the things you wrote - Dhalsim, you did well for 20 years and you're going to do well from now on as well, I support you

3. [+2709, -62] At some point, she pretended like she didn't see appearance criticism, body evaluation, and hate comments about her facial expressions but imagine how much she was hurt by them that she cried like that, I hope that she'll now reduce a bit of the baggage in her heart - Rainbow Club members, let's only walk the flower path

4. [+2439, -56] I teared up while watching too ㅠㅠㅠ It was really moving and she's amazing, I think Hye Jin's 20 years is very precious 

5. [+2299, -62] Ah seriously it was really sad... A lonely fight for 20 years... She tried to bear bad words by herself, imagine how hard it was for her to acclimate 

6. [+1753, -40] Two Hye Jin (t/n: Hwasa's birth name is also Hye Jin), Narae - YeoEunPa (t/n: YeoEunPa stands for The Girls' Secret Party) is so heartwarming ㅠㅠㅠㅜ They understand each other and their chemistry fits well, I hope YeoEunPa gets together again soon
