Gong Seung Yeon looks as captivating as ever in a recent pictorial with the December issue of The Star. In an interview afterwards, she looked back on her acting career and family relationships.
Gong Seung Yeon first became known to the public through the drama “Heard It Through the Grapevine” and the variety show “We Got Married.” Recently, she has been acting with some of the best actors in the country through the SBS drama “Six Flying Dragons.”
“I want to learn a lot while filming for a long-paced 50 episode drama,” she said. “I want people to think of me when they look back at Empress Wonkyung after the drama is over.”
She also added she did not want to take a break from acting, even if she gets busier than now. She gave herself a 60 out of 100 for her work this year and said she gave herself such a low score to open up more possibilities.
Meanwhile, Gong Seung Yeon talked about her family as well. While she is the eldest out of three sisters, the youngest is girl group TWICE’s Jungyeon. The two rely on each other more than anyone else because they know what it’s like to jump into the entertainment field at such a young age.
“I’m very grateful to have Jungyeon. I’m also proud of her. One time, she had promised to come over my house where I live alone, but she came a lot later than she had promised. I scolded her out of concern. She started crying because she was swarmed by fans and ended up going through several allies so they wouldn’t find my house. She was upset I didn’t realize the effort she went through. I felt very sorry then and truly felt how much Jungyeon cares for me.”
