Actress describes Brazil scare
Lee told her story at a press conference on Wednesday, explaining how she was given some unknown herbs by a native tribe they were filming as a gift. She said she still doesn’t know what exactly the gift was.
“The local coordinator and the production team received the herbs, and I did not know about it,” she said, explaining how the miscommunication that caused local police’s suspicion got started.
Producer Park In-sik, who was also on the team that traveled to Brazil, has not come back to Korea as Brazilian authorities are reviewing the crew’s tapes for evidence.
“I experienced things that I never had before in my life,” Lee said. “I felt so confused after I came back to Korea.”
However, the actress said she was trying to get past the incident.
“If I think about, it will be a good memory, and I feel like I can take any difficult thing from now on.”
