Joo Hyun Young Talks About Receiving Inspiration From BIGBANG, Funniest Cast Member Of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo,” And More
“Extraordinary Attorney Woo” star Joo Hyun Young has a breathtaking smile in her new pictorial for @star1!
In the interview for the pictorial, Joo Hyun Young talked about her character Dong Geurami’s famous greeting. She shared, “BIGBANG crossed my mind. When I was in school, ‘B to the I to the Bang Bang’ was really popular, so I sang along to it a lot, and I made [the greeting] after receiving inspiration from that.”
Regarding her chemistry with the other actors of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo,” Joo Hyun Young shared, “We were all amazed at how people who are on the same wavelength could meet through one project. Our humor was also on the same wavelength.” As the funniest cast member, Joo Hyun Young chose Ha Yun Kyung. She explained, “A person funnier than me is ‘spring sunshine’ Ha Yun Kyung. She is really funny in private settings. When I talk with her, I always laugh out loud to the point that I’m rolling over with laughter.”
Joo Hyun Young also shared, “Every time [Park Eun Bin] finished one scene, everyone would give a standing ovation. Her memorization skills that took on such a great amount of lines are unbelievable. I learned a lot from watching. It was a great fortune to just be able to work together with Park Eun Bin in one project.”
When asked what character she will showcase next after portraying various sides of her through “Saturday Night Live” (“SNL”), Joo Hyun Young replied, “Honestly, I’m depleted [of ideas]. I’ve showed off each one of my skills. Everyone keeps asking me if there’s more, but I’m worried since there really isn’t any. A new season of ‘SNL’ will start soon, but I’m at a loss for what to do then.”
Finally, Joo Hyun Young revealed that unlike her current image, she was actually a quiet student back in her school days. She shared, “I heard that my peers from my school days are really shocked seeing me on television. According to those people that I attended school with, I was very soft-spoken and had an image of a gentle student.”
Joo Hyun Young’s full interview and pictorial will be available through the September issue of @star1.
