Sooyoung Talks About Receiving Advice From Jung Kyung Ho, Friendship With Shin Se Kyung, And More

The finale of JTBC’s “Run On” aired on February 4, wrapping up the story starring Im Siwan, Shin Se Kyung, Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung, and Kang Tae Oh. In a recent interview, Sooyoung shared her closing remarks saying, “It was a joy getting to act in a drama with the new year as well as greeting viewers with the release of a film coming up.”

Sooyoung credits the success of “Run On” to how it “deals with the youth, love, and lives of women and young adults who are good at what they do.” She continued, “There are times when I feel like a drama is based on assumptions of what young people must be like. But ‘Run On’ is a drama that really embodies the sentiments of those in their twenties and thirties by using the language we speak and the worries we think about. It was a piece that was possible because the writer spent her youth in the same generation as us. The actors were able to understand this and act accordingly, so I think the resulting chemistry was good.”

In “Run On,” Sooyoung played the role of Seo Dan Ah, an ambitious sports agency CEO. On this, Sooyoung commented that her character was unique in that although there have been several roles of females in leadership positions, Seo Dan Ah is one who became a leader at an early age. Sooyoung also shared, “I hope more characters like this come about in the future.”

On her friendship with fellow “Run On” actress Shin Se Kyung, Sooyoung stated, “Se Kyung is a friend and actress who I really adore. Even before we worked together, I had respect for her as an actress. She is a senior actress who has done many more projects than I have and a female celebrity who has stood her place without any major issues. I find her respectable and in a way makes me feel proud of her.”

She added, “In ‘Run On,’ Se Kyung really appreciated my humor and accepted my ideas and jokes a lot. Now that we’ve acted alongside each other, I see that she has points she wants to emphasize yet is still flexible, and she looks after those around her despite being very focused. I think I learned a lot while observing Se Kyung on set. I say that Oh Mi Joo is the best female main character. As a viewer and actress, I was very satisfied that Se Kyung played Oh Mi Joo. She is an actress who I always want to give a big round of applause to.”

Seo Dan Ah was romantically involved with Lee Young Hwa (Kang Tae Oh) in “Run On.” When asked about feedback from her real boyfriend Jung Kyung Ho, Sooyoung responded, “These days, I’m often asked what I would choose between work and love. I don’t think love and work are separate. Rather, I think both are a part of my life. I’m doing my best by switching up my priorities when I have to. As for him, I think he is a senior actor who is really good at romantic comedies. I think it’s one of my blessings to have such a person in a position where I can always ask questions comfortably. He gives me lots of ideas and help.”
