In a candid blog post, K-pop princess Lee Hyori has opened up about a body complex she's long kept hidden -- she doesn't like her legs.

The 35-year-old took to her website to share thoughts on her physical appearance, revealing: "Since I started going to school, I hated my short legs.  I was especially envious of the slender and long legs around me while being a celebrity.  I felt like I could do anything if I could just grow out my legs more."

She continued: "I was nervous that people would catch on and it pricked my heart when the people who already found out left messages. Even comments like 'her face is pretty' and 'her waist is pretty' didn't cheer me up at all.  I wanted to have it all."

But, alongside a photo of a cat, Lee revealed that despite her insecurities, she wouldn't have things any other way. "Tsk tsk," she wrote, directly to the feline. "Why are you asking for more when you got that much? You can go anywhere with your legs, run as much as you want, even dance the crab dance out of the blue, but there's just not enough time to be grateful for having healthy legs... Look at me, I'm short but that doesn't prevent me from living." Preach!
