On November 28, he was one of the panelists on JTBC’s talk show “Ssulzun” where the topic of nation’s little sister was being discussed.
MC Park Ji Yoon asked Kim Heechul, “You know someone who’s close to IU. What does she think of the title?” He answered, “IU and Suzy aren’t interested in the ‘nation’s little sister’ title.” Park Ji Yoon inserted, “But the agency probably is very interested.”
He continued, “They actually say it’s a burden, and I actually asked her about it not too long ago. She responded, ‘But it’s been a while since I didn’t have that title.’”
MC Kang Yong Suk added, “As for Suzy, looks like her agency didn’t really try to take advantage of the nation little sister image. It’s only that the advertisers used her nation’s little sister image after her appearance in the movie ‘Architecture 101.’”
Park Ji Yoon responded, “It’s probably because her agency didn’t pursue that image so she’ll probably have the easiest time transitioning into an adult image.”
