Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun Talks About Her Acting Career And Learning To Focus On Herself
Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun recently participated in a photo shoot and interview with GQ Korea to talk about her acting career, how she relieves stress, and more.
During the interview, Seohyun was asked how she has maintained her poise without any issues since she made her debut 12 years ago. She replied, “Ever since I was young, I kept telling myself, ‘You are the youngest member of Girls’ Generation. Don’t do anything that will tarnish that name.’ I’d say, ‘I’m this kind of person so I need to keep these rules.'”
Seohyun added, “However, once I learned that I can do things well on my own without setting up such strict rules for myself, I felt the tension leave my shoulders a little.”
When asked how she relieves stress, Seohyun said, “I play with a punching machine or I do target practice at a range. I like to drive at fast speeds in a convertible as well. I want to keep doing that, even when I’m an old grandma.” She remarked, “Now, I live life the way I want no matter what others say. I drive with the roof down, who cares if people recognize me? I’m listening more and more to myself and my needs.”
Seohyun also shared her desire to grow into an actress like Jeon Do Yeon and Kim Hye Soo. She said, “I really want to work. However, I’m being very careful about my choices as this will be my first project since signing on with Namoo Actors.” She concluded by saying, “I’ve met this brand new world that is me. I want to look after both Seo Joo Hyun, the normal human being, and actress and singer Seohyun as I keep discovering new things about myself.”
