I have never met a star as down to earth, kind and as caring as her. This was taken during our first day of shooting. While on stand by, I had a long talk with Korean actress Lee Sung Kyung 이성경. I was going through something that time. She said "I will pray for you. And I'm not just saying that. They're not empty words. I AM REALLY GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU." And she shared to us her life verse: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." – Hebrews 11:1 – Thank you so much @heybiblee for all the encouraging words. For praying for and with me. For showing real concern. I am praying for you too. Let your light shine always! ❤
