“My Spring Day” Writer Clarifies How Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung Was Cast for Her Role

My Spring Day

Writer Park Ji Sook has made her perspective regarding the casting of Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung in the MBC drama My Spring Day.”

On an interview that was recently conducted, Park Ji Sook said, “When I was first planning the drama, it was a very shabby story that couldn’t even be explained in a sentence. There wasn’t even a story about a heart transplant. I just wanted to tell a mellow story about a man and a woman who should not have fallen in love, but confirm their love together through the difficult time. I didn’t add in anything special or try to put in anything new, but I tried to write it in a unique way.”

Park Ji Sook said of the controversy of casting Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung in the drama, “If there is one thing that I feel sad about, it was that there were a lot of talk about the female lead of the drama. However, there was no influence of her agency or exchange of money involved. She had just auditioned with the hopes that she would get even a small role.”

Park Ji Soon added, “Her acting was different because it wasn’t as polished as we often see from actresses, but that made me and the director feel, ‘Shouldn’t that be what Bom Yi is like?’ Her laughter and her genuine speech and such honest and innocent image really felt like Bom Yi. She just was Bom Yi.”

Meanwhile, “My Spring Day” aired its last episode on October 30.
