Running Man fans, calm down, because the well-loved Prince of Asia, Lee Kwang Soo, is the newly appointed ambassador of Shilla Duty Free! We had the chance to get up close and personal with the 1.9m tall, soft-spoken Korean star at the first anniversary celebration of the Shilla Duty Free Beauty Loft at Changi Airport, to learn more about his skincare routines and how he’s like in real life.
Fans of Lee Kwang Soo would know that he looks good even when running around overcoming all sorts of challenges with the other celebrities on popular Korean variety game show Running Man. He shared that filming takes up a lot of time, and in most times, he doesn’t get much rest or sleep at all. The longest he has gone without sleeping was for three whole days! But still, his skin is always on point. Interestingly enough, he doesn’t have a 10-step skincare routine to maintain it.
“My skincare tip or secret is really simple. I apply sunblock when I’m shooting because I’m outside most of the time, and I drink plenty of water when I can. Most importantly, when I get the chance to sleep, I sleep!”
Shilla Duty Free in Singapore is also the first in the world to have a beauty loft that caters to travellers waiting for their flight, or are in transit. The beauty loft, located at the transit area of Terminal 3, has beauty services like facials and makeovers by brands like SK-II, Dior and La Prairie. The Travel Ready services are capped at 20 minutes, because nobody would want to miss their flight!
Everyone enjoys shopping at duty free stores – Lee Kwang Soo included! “I usually walk around in the duty free section because I can’t stay at one area for too long. Most of the time, I’ll get beauty products for my mother because it’s cheaper,” he said, with the help of a translator.
