[Conversations with Hee Yeol 2 Roundup] Han Hye Jin looks back on her modeling career and reveals that her height used to be a big complex of hers

Nationwide ratings for this episode that aired on June 1: 4.5% (cr. Naver TV)

Note: The show's title on streaming platforms like OnDemandKorea is 'Conversations with Hee Yeol' but the literal title of the show can be: 'The Joy/Pleasure of Conversations'.

During the episode, Han Hye Jin said that she was always the "tall, ugly kid". During her school years, she felt like no matter where she went it felt like she had two heads (t/n: meaning she stood out) and her wish was to just get smaller. When she was in the sixth grade, she was already 168 cm tall and she was even taller than her teacher. She said the sound of the school bell ringing was like a neurosis for her because the boys in her school would come to her to measure their height. She hated PE class to the point where she wanted to die because she would have to go outside while wearing PE clothes that were too short on her. She acknowledges that there will be people who say, while watching, that she shouldn't use that expression lightly (e.g. wanting to die just because of PE class) but she explained that when she looks back at that time now, she thinks she had agoraphobia and because of this, she didn't ride the bus or subway. She would get into trouble from her parents for always riding the taxi - she would save up her allowance and use it on taxi rides. She explained that because her height was the height of an adult but she looks like a kid and she's wearing children's clothes so people can't help but stare so that was always a fear for her. She also revealed that she loved using umbrellas on rainy days because she was able to hide her height so even now she likes rainy days the most. 

Yoo Hee Yeol asked when this complex turned into self-confidence and Han Hye Jin said that it switched over when she started receiving business cards (being scouted in the streets). 

1. [+1457, -36] South Korea is a country where you can only be happy if you're the average height, average weight, and average looks.. It's a country where if you even a bit away from the average, you don't get treated like a person.. It's a country where not even a bit of diversity is accepted.. 

2. [+675, -4] There are times when kids are evil because they're too honest(?)..
