Lee Guk Joo

Comedian Lee Guk Joo is set to grace the cover of Big Issue! Her photoshoot for the November issue of the magazine is filled with a wide range of different concepts and outfits, and Lee Guk Joo was praised for her ability to adapt to each change flawlessly. She has also been praised for her pleasant and friendly demeanor throughout the photoshoot as she kindly made sure to take care of the staff around her.

“It’s enough if I find something I’m good at and do it well,” she explained honestly in an interview with Big Issue. “I think that rather than trying to be good at the things I’m bad at, I should focus on what I’m good at instead.” The interview continued with the comedian offering her opinion on the good things in life: “The criteria for happiness seems to differ depending on the person. I think that the happiness I feel from even a tiny detail is important…I hope that the readers of Big Issue will also discover happiness in small tasks and feelings.”

You can catch Lee Guk Joo on a number of programs including tvN’s ‘Comedy Big League’, an upcoming episode of SBS’ ‘Healing Camp’ and her own radio program, ‘Lee Guk Joo’s Youngstreet’.
