Following the conclusion of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, Lee Sung Kyung was interviewed about her close ties with other celebrities, including her ten-year friendship with Lee Jong Suk (Pinocchio)

When asked about having a “rich celebrity network", she became flustered, stating, “I wish people wouldn’t say that anymore. All there is is a picture of me with the people that I acted with online, and it feels like I’m the only one they say has a ‘rich celebrity network.’ It’s embarrassing. Because of that, people seem to think there is something particular about me, but I’m really no different from other actors. We just became close while working together. And it’s crazy, but there are a lot of cases where I knew someone from before they became famous, which is another reason why I think the ‘rich celebrity network’ came up.”

Before becoming famous, Lee Sung Kyung was already close with Lee Jong Suk, having been friends with him for over a decade, and Choi Tae Joon (Missing Nine), who used to live in the same neighborhood as her.

The actress explained that she has so many celebrity friends due to her outgoing and friendly personality. However, she also said that she has more male friends than female. Lee Sung Kyung elaborated stating, "For some reason, I’ve always just been more comfortable around guy friends. I can be a little more free and less careful with guys. Conversation is a lot more comfortable and there’s a back-and-forth quality that I think fits me better. On the flip side, since we’re such close friends, they don’t see me as a woman. I’ve had a lot of guy friends, but even in high school, I never had a real boyfriend.”
