Right after the Seoul Music Awards, where he accepted Taemin‘s award and read his speech, Leeteuk posted a message on Instagram that had some fans worry about him.
He explained what his current mental state is and how sometimes he just feels like a hamster racing every day.
“… It truly was an exhausting and chaotic day. I have to wash my bed sheets, dry them and then lay on top of them to truly feel that this day is now over. My voice is raspy, my head is empty and my legs feel like they’re floating. I sometimes think I’m a hamster, racing on his wheel. But what is the reason for me to keep running on that wheel? There’s an answer but it’s probably best to just keep racing without knowing… that’s the answer..”
After receiving a myriad of supportive comments, Leeteuk uploaded a new message just to assure fans that he was ok. He also wanted to thank everyone for their concerns.
“..Everyone thank you so much… My eyes look really sad… I’m going to blame it on the cold weather. Even looking at myself, I feel uncomfortable. I’m past puberty ㅋㅋㅋ..”
