When the reporters asked “Who do you think is the next ‘Nation’s Little Sister,'” Moon Geun Young answered, “Kim Yun Ah is so awesome and I personally like her a lot. She stands out a lot.”

Moon Geun Young continued, “Even to me, Suzy and IU look so lovable and pretty,” and “As I looked at Suzy and IU, I thought to myself, ‘Was I like them too? Was that why people called me the ‘Nation’s Little Sister?’ and it made me feel really good.”

She commented, “Before, I didn’t like that title. At the time, the ‘Nation’s Little Sister’ title felt heavy and felt like a restriction.”

But in the end, she added, “But the current ‘Nation’s Little Sisters’ are so pretty and good,” and “If I think that way, I’m very grateful and happy that people thought of me as the ‘Nation’s Little Sister.'”

Moon Geun Young also spoke about her graduation. She has been a Sungkyunkwan University student for the seventh year as a Korean Language and Literature major.

She said, “I have completed all of my credits but my English class grades are a bit low. Actually, I am ready to graduate but I will do so when I want to.”

She continued, “In order to graduate, I need a certification for a computer class and good English marks. I already completed by thesis so I will graduate when I feel like I want to.”

The actress also garnered attention for her flawless morning selca that showed off her porcelain skin and beautiful eyes.
