MANILA, Philippines — Korean actress Koo Hye Sun revealed that she lived in her car while studying in Sungkyunkwan University.

In an episode of tvN's "Truth or Fiction: An Elegant Life," Koo said she sacrificed a lot while completing her degree. 

"I have squandered much of my fortune. After some bad things happened to me, my family has become a lot closer," she said. 

The "Boys Over Flowers" star said she lives in her mother's house in Incheon but she stayed in her car on exam days.

"I don't have a permanent residence," she said. 

"I stay at my mother's house in Incheon, but on exam days or important occasions, I bring my car and sleep in it or stay at the library," she added. 

Koo said that she used to rent a small room near the school, but the lease ended and she couldn't find a replacement. 

When asked how she washed herself, Koo said: "I often don't wash much." 

"I can manage without shampoo, using just soap for everything, including my face. I genuinely don't understand the need for body wash and use lotion for everything," she added. 

Last February, the actress graduated from college with a Summa Cum Laude award.
