In 2019, the actor talked about his life living alone after dropping out of school. 

During his guest appearance in JTBC’s “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator,” he shared that he decided to drop out of high school at 18. 

One of his adult decisions is to live alone and choose the neighborhood of Noryangjin. 

He rented a rooftop apartment and worked as a part-timer to make ends meet. 

“I worked at a DVD and comic book rental shop. The store, which had been losing money for eight months, earned a surplus of 800 won (approximately $0.70) after three months. The owner asked me, a teenager, to run the store.”

As for his parents, Lee Yi Kyung’s father was the one who suggested that he drop out of school. 

“I used to play sports, but I gave up because I got hurt. After my dream disappeared, I developed a mental disease [depression]. My dad said, ‘Just live doing what you want to do,’ and signed my [school] withdrawal papers.”

Despite living a simple life, Lee Yi Kyung was able to make his father proud of the notable K-dramas that he joined. 

Among this is his latest series, “Marry My Husband,” where viewers get to see a different side of him other than comedy. 

Lee Yi Kyung takes on the role of antagonist, Park Min Hwan, who is the abusive husband of Kang Ji Won (Park Min is young).”
