On the screen, there were 3 videos of her that were shown with their respective hashtags. Sung Kyoung went on to explain what those videos meant.

The first video was about Lee Sung Kyoung working out. When the video was shown on the screen, she was so embarrassed and wanted to turn the screen off! She is so cute! She also shared that she loves working out and she mostly focuses on the upper parts of her body. No wonder she looks so fit! #WorkOut #NoRest

Next, was a video of her which appears to be during a photo shoot. The hashtags for this photo were #Sunshine #SecretPoctorial #LovelyExpression. Lee Sung Kyoung shared that this photo shoot was held during the winter and even though she was sharing a skirt and it seems sunny, they were all feeling cold and had to have hot packs during the shot. She was doing her best to finish the photo shoot right away because everyone was feeling cold. She doesn’t want to delay the shoot any longer because of the cold weather. Our very considerate Biblee!

The last video of her was actually taken without her knowing! It was during the shoot of Dr. Romantic 3. She shared, “I saw the camera director with the sun hitting on him so I helped and covered him with an umbrella”. The hashtags were very fitting for this situation! #Heavy #MustProtect
