Actress Han Ye Seul Confesses She Was Bullied At The Start Of Her Career

“When I first came to Korea, nobody really liked me…”

As an American coming to Korea, Han Ye Seul experienced a major cultural difference with Koreans who disliked her for not fitting into “conservative” Korean culture.

When I first came to Korea, nobody really liked me because I was very opinionated. You know how Americans say what [they] think? But in Korea, it’s a different culture.

That dislike turned into bullying when Han Ye Seul began her career as a model. She revealed, “The first experience coming to Korea was a supermodel contest. I was always bullied.

The actress thought her ambition to succeed might’ve intimidated others and caused jealousy. She said, “Maybe because my ambition got the best of me that they didn’t like how I was pursuing my career.

As a result, Han Ye Seul couldn’t recall having any good interactions with the girls she was working with at the time.

I had a lot of troubles with girls. I was never liked by other girls, so it was difficult.

Despite the bullying she experienced, Han Ye Seul continued to pursue modeling until she finally debuted as an actress and achieved success. Now, she’s living a happy life.
