Shin Hye Sun gracefully braves through malicious comments against her.
In an interview, the actress shares, “I receive a lot of comments calling me ugly or a nobody. I look up articles about me a couple times a day. I read all the comments one by one too, only because I’m curious about the stories surrounding me. However, I’m now slowly practicing not to take comments to heart.”
When the interviewer protests, “You aren’t ugly at all,” she responds, “I like my ordinary looks. There are people who think this look is refreshing too.”
Shin Hye Sun’s so-called “ordinary” appearance is rather a natural beauty that allows her to seem more approachable to the public. After debuting in KBS2 drama “School 2013,” the actress appeared in film “A Violent Prosecutor,” where she shot a famous kissing scene with actor Kang Dong Won, and in drama “Five Children,” where she proved her potential of being a romantic-comedy lead.
She states, “I’m still an unknown rookie actress. It’s my dream to work as an actress all my life. To achieve that, I have to discipline myself well from now on.”
She continues, “It’s been three years since I debuted. I didn’t dream of it to be this strenuous when I was younger, but this job is very fun in reality too. I like that I meet people, and I’m happy when I act. I’ll work hard to become a timeless and versatile actress, so please watch out for me.”
