During an interview with entertainment news program “Section TV,” the former Fin.K.L member-turned-actress admitted that she is a huge fan of Yoo Seung Ho, and would love to act alongside him.
“I heard so many bad things after I said [that I want to act with Yoo Seung Ho],” she said, “people told me, ‘you are old enough to be his aunt, what are you thinking?'”
She defended herself by saying, “Lee Bo Young and Lee Jong Suk are 10 years apart in age but they still acted as a couple in ‘I Can Hear Your Voice.’ I wish I could do something like that too.”
Born in 1981, Sung Yuri is 12 years older than Yoo Seung Ho, who was born in 1993.
She also humorously sent a video message to the young actor, saying, “I’m only speaking as a fan, so please don’t feel pressured. Please continue to do great things!”
She concluded the video, commenting “Yoo Seung Ho’s mother, I am so sorry.”
